Review – Payday 2 (PC)

mature-gaming.com
7 September 2013
  • Excerpt: Payday 2 is the sequel to the successful Payday: The Heist developed by Overkill and published by 505 Games. Following up on what has to be one of the best ideas of the last generation, Overkill look to improve on Payday: The Heist’s reputation of being a buggy, yet extremely fun game especially in multiplayer.

Payday 2 Review (PC)

Softpedia
4 September 2013
  • Conclusion: While the Crimenet system is a bit confusing to use at first and you most certainly need to participate in a few heists before you can figure out all the mechanics, Payday 2 is a fun four-player co-op shooter that will definitely delight not only fans of the original but also those looking for a new experience they can play with friends.
  • Pros: +Improved heists, +Varied missions with random events, +Extensive customization options
  • Cons: -Stupid teammate AI, -Confusing story, -Soundtrack doesn't stand out that much

It’s the Payday 2 way or the highway

quartertothree.com
26 August 2013
  • Excerpt: As much as I like Payday 2 — What else is any serious Payday fan going to say about this sequel? — it’s nearly criminal how badly developer Overkill has mismanaged the overall experience. I just want to play Payday 2 the way I want to play Payday 2. I just want to grind an easy mission. I just want to quickly jump into a game with other people. I just want to play a practice game to figure out how to mix methamphetamines.

Payday 2

22 August 2013
  • Excerpt: Nothing is sweeter, I feel, than a heist without hitch. Except a heist where I get to murder over 60 police officers, who are probably all two days from retirement. But don't get scared, because I'm not talking about real life, but Overkill's latest incarnation of the Payday franchise. And it's amazing.

“If you feel the heat around the corner…” – Payday 2 Review

GamingTrend
3 September 2013
  • Excerpt: I move through the crowded jewelery store like a ghost. By the time anyone suspects anything, it’s already too late. Pulling out my gun, I order the innocent shoppers to the ground. One attempts to call the police, but an ECM jammer keeps the signal from going through. Not wanting to risk another would-be hero, two of my teammates move through the storefront and restrain the frightened civilians with cable ties.
  • Pros: Multiple approaches to each heist, Mission variety and randomization keeps the game fresh, Enemy AI are surprisingly clever and aggressive, Difficulty modes (Normal, Hard, Very Hard, Overkill) scale nicely and add challenge, Gunplay is much improved from the first game
  • Cons: Most money is funneled to an overseas account with no apparent purpose, No proper introduction to the game or tutorial in a game that relies on teamwork and mutual understanding, Weapon modifications are expensive and inefficient, The “Safe House” seems full of squandered potential

Game Review: Payday 2 (PC/PS3/Xbox360)

push-start.co.uk
31 August 2013
  • Excerpt: The original Payday is a downloadable title that gathered somewhat of a cult following and proved to be a digital download success. So with the sequel, Overkill Software wanted to top what they had achieved, by simply being Bigger and Better. To do this it was not only time for Payday 2 to evolve its gameplay and in-game content, it was time for the franchise to move into the world of retail, as well as remain in the digital world.
  • Pros: - Great fun teaming up with friends
  • Cons: - Very dodgy computer A.I

Payday 2 PC Review

DarkZero
27 August 2013
  • Excerpt: The First Person Shooter genre of games continues to thrive in releases and sales, but lately the increased criticisms from gamers suggest that the fad may have begun to dwindle. Aside from the typical complaint that there are simply too many FPS games with similar aesthetics, another growing complaint is the excessive violence frequently featured in these games.
