Payday 2 – Mini Review!

What is it?

Payday 2 is a multiplayer first person shooter made by Overkill for the PC, Xbox 360, PS3 and is soon to be arriving on the Xbox One and PS4 too. You get to perform a variety of heists such as robbing banks or jewellery stores and can even re-enact your wildest Breaking Bad fantasies by getting your cook on and making some sweet, sweet meth.

Platform(s)

PC, Xbox 360 and PS3

Pros
Cons
Fast Paced
Challenging
Large active community
Great soundtrack
Lots of customisation
Steep learning curve
Old Generation console versions suffer from a lack of support and updates
“Death by DLC” – Overkill spends little time focusing on issues and improving the core game
The game often doesn’t follow logic

Verdict:

Whilst at first it seems to be little more than a standard FPS title, Payday 2 stands out from the crowd. The wealth of customisation options and room for flexibility in play styles provides a surprising amount of replayability. Worth your while if you like fast action shooting or stealth.
