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
A lot of potential bogged down by poor porting.

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).

The online gameplay is awesome, but just when you finally break into the vault it loses connection...The PC version may be better.
I don't know what this was...

Then you spend 30 minutes getting familiar with your safe house. Are these graphics, design and controls really this horrible, or is it just me?
Finally, I figure out how to choose a mission and go, I chose what seemed like the easiest mission to get me started. Go to a mall and smash up the place. Do $50k of damage and leave. I went in. Wow, the graphics, design and lighting are truly horrid! I start shooting up the place, windows, cash registers, display cases, equipment, nothing... no "damage" yet. Um... Ok. It seems that you have to shoot specific things to do damage. So I found a CAR and emptied all my clips into it. Nothing... no "damage" registered. Finally I figure out I have to snipe wine bottles one by one while the swat team is swarming you. Ugh... this sucks.
Pop out the disk, back to gamefly.
Worst game I have played all year.

Co-Op is amazing. Playing alone it is overly repetitive and boring. The difference between easy medium and hard is about the difference between fighting an ant, then fighting a bear, then fighting the biggest mothership from the biggest alien movie and doing it alone.
The graphics would break down and get warped. The weapons were not at all as described in their power charts. And my pet peeve, the cost of everything is exponential. So you might pay for one upgrade at $5,000, then 12,000, then 24,000, then 100,000, then 500,000 … etc. Mind you on a mission that has three gold stars and is significantly difficult you might bring home a useable $400,000 …. MIGHT. But that is atypical and you usually net in the area of $50,000 - $180,000 for a pretty tough mission and that is often with taking all the loot.
And that brings me to one more stupid point, you get all this cash but only can spend 10% on anything and the rest goes into your vault for brags. WTH is the point of that? Just … NO! Let me use the cash and then if I have not cash to brag with I at least have equipment.
This game was a huge let down. Even playing some intense rounds with some good players we only lasted a week. And the only reason why we spent that much time doing it was because we thought it would get better. It didn't Don't waste your time unless you've literally played every other game on here.
Not bad..Could of been great.
