Bag throwing simulator
Style: 8/10 Gameplay: 8/10 Story: 1/3 Overall: 7/10
The music is great making you pumped up for the war, the collaborations are weird, and the amount of content in the game is outstanding for how long the game has been running for.
Payday 2 is a surprisingly calm and mind numbing if you play loud at a difficulty lower than one down with powerful weapons mowing down waves of enemies and specialists. Some of the things that I do find stressing about payday is one down and stealth just because of some of the janky hit-boxes and the power of randomly getting one hit in a doge build.
When I used to play there use to be no story line, but now they do and it does not make any sense. Starting out you are stealing bags of cash then nukes, then presidential pardons, and finally killing going back to the white house to kill a contractor. It just confuses me how fast the story takes a turn.
Payday 2 is a fun game with people. If you are playing by yourself then it is bag throwing simulator. If you want to find friends or like to get kicked out of public lobbies for being a low level or having less than 100 hours in the game then this is the game for you.
