    As a single player game it's just a mediocre shooter, but bring on some friends and you'll have hours upon hours of mindless fun.

    As long as you can find some felons to fight alongside, Payday 2 is an addictive and challenging criminal pursuit.

    There may be no such thing as the perfect heist in PayDay 2, but they’re rarely forgettable — proof that while this game isn’t quite the transcendent co-op experience on the level of, say, Left 4 Dead — it still offers up a nice change of pace in first-person shooters on Xbox.

    PayDay 2 sports an interesting concept but it isn't flawless: bad graphics and a very inappropriate AI keep it from showing its true potential. You should consider it only if you've got three friends to play with.

    If you can bear some of its faults, you don't mind an awful lot of shooting and can get three friends together, then Payday 2 is a blast.

    For a game that focuses on the presumably brisk and stressful art of armed robbery, Payday 2 involves one heck of a lot of waiting around. [Issue#139, p.96]

It's an amazing evolution from the first one with more missions, more customization, and great characteristics.

    The graphics and animations can be buggy, but downloading the game to hard drive makes it better.

You whisper to the team to stop as you peer around the corner scanning for any rent-a-cops that might be suspicious of your activity. "Pop!" One bullet from your partners silenced pistol and the security guard is down, now all that stands before you and thousand of dollars in gold and silver is a thin sheet of glass. "Do I break it and risk being heard?" You think to yourself, knowing that at the flip of a coin everything could go south. "Smash!" The window shatters as the butt of your gun hits it. "AHHH!" Screams a pedestrian, your heart races, then the alarm goes off! "Masks on guys!", it's time to go to work. Welcome to Payday 2, the heist in on!
