    dkirschner's Payday 2 (PC)

    [June 14, 2017 10:40:04 AM]
    Overkill gave away 5 million copies of this on Steam last week. Free popular team shooter? Sure thing! I did all the training missions and played a few random games with people this morning. I think it's fun. Definitely never played an FPS heist game before, and this is far more entertaining than Monaco, the other heist game I tried yesterday.

    You and three other people (or bots) engage in various criminal acts (robbing banks, guarding drug factories, stealing drugs, etc.). Like any multiplayer shooter, you choose a loadout and follow the objectives to complete the mission. There are tons of guns and gun mods and other items and characters to unlock. Payday 2 is both trigger happy and DLC happy.

    It gets pretty detailed with the actions you have to perform. Besides the fact that "hold F" does 90% of things in the game, it's cool that a mission will have you scout the premises first, then put on your mask (which means you're now ready for crime and NPCs will respond as such), sneak into the a building, take out a few security officers, pick up their radios and reassure dispatch that everything is fine so the police don't come (yet), stuff the bodies in body bags, hide the bodies, avoid the security cameras, find the computer, hack the computer (objective complete!), find a stash of money/cocaine, trip an alarm, attempt to carry out money/cocaine (can't sprint while carrying heavy things!) as police storm the building, escape in van.

    From my few online games, Payday 2 seems difficult. I mean, I am new and was maybe playing with other newbies, but we never completed a mission. I have some friends who used to play this years ago, so maybe they'll be interested in picking it back up. Nevertheless, I have another nice team-based game to call upon in times of gaming with friends! Yay!

    dkirschner's opinion and rating for this game

    It was free. No interest beforehand. ---------- Seems cool, but I've got other shooters and co-op games that are more interesting to me.
