Flawed, but fun.
This is a great game. Very tense action and lots to do. Best played with human players online because it's near impossible to play the big missions alone. The team AI is some of the worst in video game history. There's lots of talk about upcoming patches that will make things better, but who knows. Overall though, this is a blast if you like team-based games that require you to work together. Highly recommend if you can look past the flaws.
WORST GAME EVER!!!
WORST GAME EVER. DO NOT BUY, SAVE YOUR MONEY. This game is impossible. I have played about 50 missions on normal and only completed oh say...... 3. AGAIN DO NOT BUY THIS PIECE OF TRASH. WASTE OF TIME AND MONEY. Thank you for your time, and have a great day! p.s. This review had a lot of cursing but unfortunately the website wouldnt accept it....... sooo yeah.
Worth every penny you spent
This game is really addicting and I can't stop playing it but I have to say split screen would bee helpful
For a game so centralized on co-op (seeing as the AI don't do squat on your team) you would think they would know to add a feature as simple as split-screen. I understand that they wouldn't for the PC versions but for the console... It's ridiculous that there is no split-screen. Made me down-vote the entire game. It is very difficult to do most missions solo and takes away from the game with no split-screen.
I am absolutley STUNNED by this game. It may not have AAA graphics but they certainly are great, the sound is just amazing the gunshots, and the soundtrack. The game is extremely fun and is worth every penny, and isn't even full priced, only $40. Although there are only 11 heists, there are variables that change every time, such as the amount of civies and guards, where a drill is located, where the security cameras are. It enhances the replayabillity as you cannot just look at a map once and complete it extremely fast every time. I would reccomend this game to friends because it is a GREAT Co-op Game. the only reason i did not give it a 10 is because the singleplayer is hard and if you dont have gold for xbox (no worries playstation) then the game is still fun, but not as great as having 4 of your friends in a heist all working toghether. I love this game. Get it. Now.
This game is AWSOME!!!!!!! I love the mask customization and the returning characters. Dallas, Chains, Wolf, and Hoxton. Who could forget about the mastermind Bain.
Best Game Ever
I was a little nervous getting the game hoping it would be great and its one of my favorite games now! Can't stop playing. :)
Payday 2 - Rob the same places over and over again
Payday 2 is the first of it's kind of game that I have played, being a first person robbery and crime game. The game doesn't have a direct campaign, so it's split into a small variety of missions you can play over and over again. I highly suggest playing online, even with randoms, because playing offline puts you with near-worthless bots that don't interact with anything except reviving you. The game plays just like other first person shooters so controls will be very easy to pick up. This game offers gun, character, and skill customization, so you will have to earn your cash and experience to be able to purchase anything and become better, obviously. Upon completion of a mission, you will receive skill tree points, experience, and unlock extras for guns and masks, like attachments for guns and patterns or colors for masks, which much be purchased once unlocked to use. There is a good variety of guns, a large variety of customization available for customizing masks, and 4 different skill trees with quite a few different perks to them. To me, I believe there is a minor issue with bullets registering correctly on some guns, but it isn't so terrible that the game is unplayable. Even so, the game is still good and that won't totally prevent you from slaughtering the police force.
+One of a kind game
+Decent variety of guns
+Large skill trees
-Minor technical issues
-Players without mics who don't know what to do
-Players jumping in mid-game can interrupt important actions
Payday 2 could use a little polish on a few things here and there, but all in all a really good game, and very entertaining if you have friends with you or some helpful randoms online.
I'm in love, it's beatiful
I love this game. The gameplay is astonishing and strategic as players may choose to go guns blazing, or go all stealth. Gameplay enhancements are here such a shooting security cameras, Killing guards with silenced weapons, avoiding the police. Binding Civies so they can't call the popo, Weapon unlock system, teaming up with 3 other friends(Or finding random people online) To EXTREMELY Enhance the gameplay and strategy, and mask customization to keep the replayability stable. Not that it was never stable with different difficulties for the same levels(Which I should mention there is a ton of). The sound track doesn't need explaining all you have to do is listen. This is a fantastic game. Go buy it, worth every penny, you'll regret nothing. And did I mention it's only $29.99 - $39.99! (The Orange Box recommendation is for TF2)
Decent game for the price
I was pretty excited when I found out about this game. I enjoy the fact that the game doesn't really give you an incentive to hog all the action since everything you loot exc. goes to the whole team for the job resulting in actual team work most of the time. My biggest complaint about this game would have to be the menu system, I don't like having to wait for the host to start the game or sitting at the screen waiting for one of the jobs I need an achievement for to pop up, gets old and you can literally be waiting a half hour for the job to not show up on screen which is my main reason for the 5 on lasting appeal along with the fact that you can play a multi part job to fail it at the end and get nothing, but in reality that is just the game being realistic. Sound sometimes is glitchy, it becomes slow motion alot with the voices and game audio sometimes continues to play during menu. Overall once you get the hang of the game and level up to get weapons and skills it is a enjoyable game the hardest part is deciding what skills to unlock.
