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.
Not as fun as the originalShaide | Jan. 23, 2015 | See all Shaide's reviews »
If you like heists and being the bad guy, you might really enjoy this, Though I would suggest playing with friends, since most of the PUG gamers take the heists EXTREMELY seriously. This made it really uncomfortable for me to play in groups while I was learning the ropes.
Still, as I said, it's a fun game and would happily recommend it to friends, although it wasn't as fun or straight forward as the original.

I really enjoyed this game for all the coop madness it brings. My brother and I are really into making aolid plans, and it really puts our skills to the test considering it's just the two of us against all the cops.
The missions are really fun, and the DLC is actually good.
It's kind of annoying to be with random people though, since sometimes there's that one guy that's too eager and gets the whole team in trouble by messing up or not guarding the door. But I suppose that adds to the charm of it all.
All in all, a good challenging game. It's fun to play with your friends, so make sure they get the game as well!

Payday:The Heist want really that great but for Overkill this is truley an improvment.The game offer many play styles for everyone.If you like to solo you can play stealth, you can be tanky or be a medic its all there.I really feel like they should add more guns or make them hard to get cause after you reach somewhere level 50 its really easy to unlock anything that can be bought.The weapons are fully customizable with lots of attachments which are harder to get and its okay to keep the game interesting.I only wish the mask would be easier to get instead of having to grind heists for them and getting lucky picking the right card.The game has an awsome community and its still supported with updates by Overkill.Its worth the price, you get twice as much and more.
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.
