  • Summary: Nobody could ever claim PAYDAY: The Heist wasn't a good idea. Tapping into every human's secret desire to be part of a beautifully orchestrated, flamboyantly daring theft of grand proportions was a masterstroke, and while the execution was spotty, the overall result was a ton of fun. Overkill is having a second crack of the whip with PAYDAY 2 , clutching its clever idea jealously while surrounding it with much more content.

PlayStation Universe
22 August 2013
  • Summary: Payday 2 is a step in the right direction for co-op action still throttled by lame single-player and an annoying unlock system.
  • Pros: Amazing co-op experience, Dynamically changing heists, Stealth
  • Cons: Questionable AI, bad single-player execution, Annoying loot system, Difficulty purchasing much-needed attachments

PAYDAY 2

GameTrailers
13 August 2013
  • Excerpt: Payday 2 may look a little like its Left 4 Dead-inspired predecessor when viewed from afar, but there's a pleasingly improved if familiar experience waiting under the franchise's new mask. Before, we were working with rookies who approached every heist with guns blazing. Now, we now have the opportunity to work as experience-hardened masterminds who value stealth over cocky presumption.

  • Conclusion: Despite it's minor issues with AI, this is a triumphant successor to an under-appreciated gem. A definite must-own for fans of the original.

  • Conclusion: Robbing banks by yourself isn't fun. As a single player experience Payday 2 is horribly frustrating. The AI doesn't flatter itself; both friendly and enemy. The objectives aren't suited to a solo player, and missions can be needlessly tricky. In short, it's bordering on broken. But that's not how this first-person shooter is intended to be played, and for every player you add to the mix, things improve accordingly. Two's company. Three's a good crowd.
  • Pros: + Great co-op action + Well implemented RPG elements + Lots of customisation options
  • Cons: - Can be a bit of grind at time - Some repetition

  • Conclusion: Sans révolutionner le genre, PayDay 2 n'en est pas moins une excellente surprise et surtout une bouffée d'air frais dans le monde en vase clos des FPS. Techniquement un peu à la traîne, le jeu se rattrape par son côté ultra fun et très décalé. À consommer sans modération et avec des amis ! Au prix proposé, il serait vraiment dommage de s'en priver.
  • Pros: La coopération, Les arbres de compétence, Richesse de gameplay, Les améliorations, CRIME.NET
  • Cons: Réalisation datée, Les bots, inutiles., I.A. perfectible

Payday 2 Review

GameParty
23 September 2013
  • Summary: Payday 2 is een erg goede game. De pech is dat het in dezelfde periode als GTA V uitkomt. De game verdiend het echter om gespeeld te worden. Het is een goed gebalanceerde game met alle ingrediënten die je je als aspirant crimineel kunt wensen. Ik geef het dan ook een dikke vette verdiende 85, in de hoop dat het nog een beetje opvalt in de dominantie van Rockstar van deze maand.
  • Pros: + Grafisch uitstekend, + Een crimineel goede gameplay, + Goede verscheidenheid in missies en wapens
  • Cons: - De pech dat het tegelijkertijd met GTA V uitkomt, - Soms erg moeilijke dus frustrerende missies
