  • Conclusion: With friends, Payday 2 delivers a multiplayer experience unlike anything else. The levels are wonderfully complicated and the leveling system is incredibly deep. Too bad the learning curve keeps the game just out of arm's reach for most newcomers. A rough single-player mode and unfriendly online matches mar an otherwise fun first-person shooter.

Payday 2 Review

  • Summary: " Payday 2 " is a substantial improvement upon the original. It’s fun, focused, and requires frenetic management of your team and resources in order to succeed. There’s a decent progression system, although I do feel the unlock system is too harsh. For the price, there’s a decent amount to do, and provided your connection to the host is great, you’ll have a blast.

Payday 2 (for PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

PC Magazine
8 September 2013
  • Conclusion: Payday 2 is a satisfying and deep heist game that manages to overcome its disappointing graphics and stupid characters to offer endless missions where anything can happen if you can keep your wits about you.
  • Pros: Lots of variety in how missions play out. Loads of customizable weapons, masks, and skills. Has surprising strategic depth.
  • Cons: Mediocre graphics and mindless AI kills the immersion. Needs to be played online to be enjoyed.

Payday 2 Xbox 360 Review

Console Obsession
28 August 2013
  • Excerpt: It’s time for a history lesson. The heist genre goes back long before the original Payday or even the colourful antics of Kane & Lynch. It also pre-dates the GTA series. We can find its roots in arcade game Bonanza Brothers, Security Alert by First Star (both offering multiple locations to loot) and way back to 1986 and They Stole A Million.

  • Conclusion: Overall, Payday 2 is an excellent game. The levels of customization are vast and you can rest assured that no two players are exactly alike. Whether you like to run in and cut down the force or you’d rather take a supporting role, the choice is yours. When you combine that with a rock solid online matchmaking system and room for up to four different players, this game is a breath of fresh air for first-person shooter fans.
  • Pros: +Customization Galore, +Great Co-op / Online
  • Cons: -Poor Solo experience

  • Conclusion: Difficult to recommend for a full purchase, even at $40. If you have a group of friends who all want to commit to it, go for it. Otherwise, you’re better off waiting until the price comes down.
  • Pros: Fun, intermittently addictive co-op gameplay, Skill trees and customizable equipment offer incentives, Good soundtrack
  • Cons: Difficulty level is wildly variable, Essentially no capacity for single-player, Weak graphics

PayDay 2

20 August 2013
  • Excerpt: 505 Games and Overkill Software have done something special with PayDay 2 with its over-the-top action and stylish gameplay. PayDay 2 manages to deliver something ingenious due  to its immersive storyline, superior aesthetics and cinematic feel. The game features a fairly simple concept which is to rob various places and not get caught in the process. However, you will soon find out that being a masked criminal isn't that simple and takes a ton of planning and expertise.

  • Excerpt: You tried to go in quietly but now the alarm’s been tripped. A horde of police are inbound. The drill - which was breaking through the safe - has jammed. Civilians are panicking: they need to be controlled. A security guard’s bullet misses you by inches. A colleague puts him down. Sirens blare out as the thumping soundtrack begins to kick in… This is a situation you’ll become hardy to in Payday 2.
