    While not a massive leap forward for the genre as a whole, Payback² makes for a seriously fun distraction if you enjoy always-changing mindless action.

    In spite of its lack of coherency, Payback 2 HD is still an immensely entertaining experience.

    Eschewing the typical criminal storyline that gave purpose to GTA's mayhem, Payback 2 HD simply provides you with a series of bite-sized situations that put you into heart-pumping action sequences meant to keep your adrenaline flowing.

    Payback 2 HD would have been better off if the name had been Payback Arcade, or something that made it sound less of a sequel. Because this is not a sequel in any way, and for those looking to play some GTA like missions I can only say: stay away.

    Payback 2 HD is a lackluster sequel to one of 2009's most impressive iOS games.
