The co-op heists of Payday 2 hijack new-gen, bringing with them a gym bag full of updates and DLC, but also some familiar problems. Great for newcomers, but non-essential for seasoned criminals.
Payday 2: Crimewave Edition is deserving of two separate scores; One based off playing the game solo or with strangers, and the other playing with friends. It's truly a completely different experience. The former had me irritated and frustrated, usually resulting in a failure of the job, while the latter had me laughing, on the edge of my seat, and itching for "just one more" mission. Sadly, that's not how we do things around here, so I'll just have to settle on one.
Payday 2's novel heist-based gameplay is still worth checking out for those interested in a refreshing cooperative experience. For veteran criminal masterminds, however, the return of easily fixable problems and lack of account migration make it hard to justify the jump from previous versions.
