EVER seen a bank heist in a movie and wondered how they did it? If so, this video game series is for you. While Payday 2 can be played alone, it’s designed to be enjoyed by you and three friends. And like any co- operative game, it’s only fun when everyone works together.
With a carefully thought- out strategy and flawless teamwork, the heists go well and everyone gets rich.
On the other hand, when there’s a lack of communication and everyone is trigger happy, you’re looking at serving time behind bars.
Strategy and planning are key to getting the best experience that Payday 2 has to offer, together with high- adrenaline gun fights and on- the- go decision- making.
Visually, the game is hit and miss, but the gameplay helps counter these flaws.
The four- player online co- operative mode is both rewarding and addictive.
Using the game’s Crime Net menu, you can pair up with other would- be thugs and select available jobs to carry out together.
And in every new game you play, guards, safes, and camera positions are randomised, which keeps things interesting.
I’d recommend it to anyone who wants to get a group of friends together, throw on some clown masks and see just how far they get without being caught – all in the name of entertainment, of course.
