Aug 16, 2013If you have online access, it's a must buy. If not, you may have to decide how much you really want it, because the AI aren't very impressive. Also, factor in that it is 40 bucks! That saves you 20 bucks off of usual new games. I would buy this if it was 60, too.
Sep 14, 2013Why are people getting so about an awesomely addictive, CHEAP game? I've played this all week its such a blast! Okay, not many maps, but who gives a Online mode is great, and each player you work with can make it the best heist, or ruin it (can barely troll in this game thank God!) I love getting mods and masks and making the perfect death setup. Only problem I've encountered is the game freezes. barely though. It is good as a host because you can kick the player who isn't pulling their own weight. Awesome game. More mature players only compared to COD. I love this as a mature gamer.my advice get it. Its cheap and you will have hours and hours of heart pounding fun.… Expand
Sep 28, 2013I always rate spot on. Not over or under and 10 is for games like Oblivion & mass effect-1
- this game is awesome I play it every night for past 2 weeks and its got me sucked I.
I play 100% solo. I love the Option to grind for exp or money and repeat the jewely/Ukrainian heist over and over and you get really good at it. And leveling is fun just like leveling in most games like Borderlands,FARCRY,dead island etc. lots of options with skill points.
-another perk is that you have to play to u lock weapon attachments. It's a great motivating incentive to keep going the grind. If you want a scope for that Ak47 you're gonna have to do heist. Brilliant!
Alot I people picked this up to hold em over till GTA5, as did I, but I still have GTA in the plastic because I can't take this out yet. That's saying alot because I'm missing out!
-good upgrades and upgrade system.
-good weapon selection(shotgun matter!)
-unique approach to heist and being a robber.
-upgrades and UBER weapons make difference.
-mask designs are really cool.
-mediocre story,not bad,but not really there
-no difference in characters(that I've noticed)
-masks offer no stats(as of now 4 me) they should!
-masks and weapons are very expensive. Harsh!
Replay value very high
Additional comment- side in new to ps3 I've bought 40 games(most are popular)
And most don't suck me like payday-2 did. So if you like getting sucked-in then have at it.… Expand
Feb 15, 2014I really like this game. It has nice mechanics, sweet gameplay, and a pretty freaking cool soundtrack if you like techno. People complain about stealth in this game, but whilst stealth IS an option in many jobs, it's not heavily relied on by ANYONE. Even the people who complain about stealth being buggy don't rely on stealth I can almost promise you that. The game gets tense when it comes down to waiting for escape or a drill to open a door/safe and includes many tactics you'd think of if you were to pull off these jobs. For instance taking hostages and trading them for team mates who were taken into custody. I recommend it for anyone who likes games about teamwork and had a few friends to play it with.… Expand
Oct 1, 2013Payday 2 plays differently each time you boot it up. Nothing ever goes the way you planned, but that does not mean it does not feel the same each and every time. Despite its repetitive ways, this second payday feels more streamlined and fun than the first one. [October 2013 p.95]
Sep 8, 2013Coupled with a stronger focus on the sound and feel of gunplay, gamers are granted the chance to pull off memorable robberies worthy of Ocean’s Eleven, with shoot-outs as intense as Three Kings, unfortunately minus the Clooney. [October 2013, p82]
