Overall I gave this game an 8 for all the fun I had while playing it. If your looking for GTA, or Saint's row it's not like that. I wouldn't even compare those games to this it's in a class of it's own a bank robbing shooter. You play as one of 4 classes which have their own perks per heist. At no point during the game did it feel that one person was running the show EVERYONE was important. This is probably one my favorite things I loved about the game. If you've played the first title in the series then get ready for more fun, more customization, and most of all more masks and 30 heists which kept me on my toes.
Pros- New Heists, More customization, Polished guns controls and A.I(if you play offline), Tons of masks to make your character unique.
Con- While this game was fun I think the only thing that bugged me was at times I'd disconnect randomly from a co-op session other than that perfect
Payday 2 is a great shooter, just...not on console.
This is an obvious port, and a poorly made one at that. Constant slow downs, crashes, and connection issues. The game is playable, but just barely. I'd love to be able to tell you to rent or buy this, but its not worth it. Right now i would advise anyone interested in Payday 2 to buy the PC version, or wait for all these issues to be fixed (if they ever are).
Any hope for the game is lost due to it's repetitive nature. Hundreds of cops overrun your every move, while you spend ALL of your time reloading your puny gun and look for more bullets...while the AI does nothing but stand around and wait for you to die so they can heal you.
The online gameplay is awesome, but just when you finally break into the vault it loses connection...The PC version may be better.
