PAYDAY 2 is an action-packed, four-player co-op shooter that once again lets gamers don the masks of the original PAYDAY crew - Dallas, Hoxton, Wolf and Chains - as they descend on Washington DC for an epic crime spree.
The new CRIMENET network offers a huge range of dynamic contracts, and players are free to choose anything from small-time convenience store hits or kidnappings, to big league cyber-crime or emptying out major bank vaults for that epic PAYDAY. While in DC, why not participate in the local community, and run a few political errands?
Up to four friends co-operate on the hits, and as the crew progresses the jobs become bigger, better and more rewarding. Along with earning more money and becoming a legendary criminal comes a new character customization and crafting system that lets crews build and customize their own guns and gear.
Rob Banks with Friends:
Players must choose their crew carefully, because when the job goes down they will need the right mix of skills on their side.
The dynamic contract database lets gamers pick and choose from available jobs by connecting with local contacts such as Vlad the Ukrainian, shady politician "The Elephant", and South American drug trafficker Hector, all with their own agenda and best interests in mind.
PAYDAY gun play and mechanics on a new level:
firing weapons and zip tying civilians never felt so good.
No heist ever plays out the same way twice. Every single scenario has random geometry or even rare events.
Choose Your Skills:
As players progress they can invest in any of four special Skill Trees: the Mastermind, the Enforcer, the Ghost and the Technician. Each features a deep customization tree of associated skills and equipment to master, and they can be mixed and matched to create the ultimate heister.
More Masks than Ever:
PAYDAY 2 features a completely new mask system, giving players the ability to craft their own unique mask together with a pattern and a color combination.
Weapons and Modifications:
A brand new arsenal for the serious heister, covering everything from sniper and assault rifles to compact PDWs and SMGs. Once you've settled for a favorite, you can modify it with optics, suppressors, fore grips, reticles, barrels, frames, stocks, all of which will affect the performance of your weapon. There are also purely aesthetic enhancements - why not go for the drug lord look with polished walnut grips for your nine?
Play It Your Way:
Each job allows for multiple approaches, such as slow and stealthy ambushes, to running in guns blazing. Hit the target any way you want, and watch as the heist unfolds accordingly.
Used to be good.Alixaure | Nov. 12, 2014 | See all Alixaure's reviews »
This game used to be really great. Before the Death Wish update, this game used to be really awesome. A 4-player FPS with tons of customization for weapons, masks and stuff. The weapons mods, the materials, colors, patterns, everything was really good ! However, after Death Wish, everything went absolutely like shit, to be honest.
First off, when DW was released, stealth was removed. Entirely. You couldn't convert enemies during stealth, making it really hard when there were more than 5 enemies in the map.
Second, Crimefest. Crimefest was probably one of the worst ideas Overkill Software even had. They pretty much asked for more members in their community group to unlock more stuff. Most of the stuff was PROMISED, even before Crimefest.
On top of that, every update makes the cops harder and harder to kill, while they make us even weaker. Sorry, but this game isn't worth it anymore. If you really want to play it, grab it when the game is cheap.

Although this game can certainly be single player, the most fun you will make out of it is in multi-player. It may be bad in some aspects, such as the story-line, but it is still a game to be played. Through all of the different weapons and attachments to the masks and their designs, your experience of the game will be changed. It contains many different heists, like bank robbing, jewellery store stealing and even meth cooking! It is an innovative experience to play this because no one is the same. It lets you level up as many games do, and has somewhat of an aspect of a role playing game. The detail in everything is very well done and it is a very good game. It also contains a lot of downloadable content, along with dlc masks and give your character's much swag. The ability of being able to purchase weapons and masks makes you feel great in the aspect of accomplishing something. In conclusion, Payday 2 is deeply recommended, because it is not a game that you play for two hours and get it over with, but it is a game that you play constantly.
One of the best games I ever playedmilanp98 | Nov. 6, 2014 | See all milanp98's reviews »
First of all, to be honest, I don't own this game. I played it on my friend's PC. And immediately fell in love with it. We all know that teamwork is the most important thing in coop games. Most coop games can be done without much team work (Just going forward, killing everything you see). But you can't play this game without team work, because you will fail. If one member of a team isn't doing his job right, the whole team isn't gonna make it. It's much harder to kill a shielder when he's focused only on you. One has to distract him, the other one has to kill him. I love this game because of planning how to rob a bank, for example. I love it because it's unique. I just love it. And I'm gonna buy it as soon as I get some money.

I don't know where to start with this game, I think this is the best horde game I have ever played. Payday 2 is about 4 guys doing every crime possible from robbing banks to manipulating elections to killing cops. I have read that you HAVE to get 3 friends otherwise it's not fun, but I can tell you this is wrong So I'm just gonna list the pros and cons Pros: -Very fun gameplay with the basics done very well (shooting throwing bags etc) -This game has what a lot of big games lack, atmosphere, with "mastermind" giving you instructions and the people screaming and the crew shouting at special enemies etc -Has one of the best soundtracks I have ever heard -Has great RPG elements like skill trees and perk decks that are VERY well done -You can customize everything from masks to guns -Gives you 2 options: stealth and loud, both are very good if you know what you are doing -Has very good matchmaking and is one of the best I have seen Cons: -There are some glitches that affect the gameplay severely, for example: when you and everyone in the room click ready sometimes the game doesn't start the heist, and the only way I found to fix this is to quit the whole game and join again
I only have one bad thing to sya about this game which speak about the quality of it. One of the best things about this game is that you can meet cool new people through it, so even if you don't have friends you'll meet some through this game. Payday2 is just fantastic

What could be more fun than robbing banks with your friends? No friends? No problem. Payday 2 offers a generous selection of heists that can be complete solo in stealth mode, to bring out the mastermind criminal in anyone, and generally improves over the original in almost every way. Some of the newer changes to the game are dubious, but the developers continue to crank out more content (free and not so free), making this a great time to start your criminal career.
