Should you get Payday 2 on Switch? Well if you want an interesting multiplayer shooter and don’t have access to it on other platforms, sure. Otherwise? Probably not. Maybe wait to see how things are after an update or two.
It’s nice that Switch owners can cash in on Payday 2’s co-op action, which remains great, and the new playable character has a skill set that introduces a new support style. But this version is handicapped by its lack of voice communication tools. Even if it’s updated to parity with the PC version, that’s a tough pill to swallow in such a cooperative game.
Ultimately it doesn't matter which way you decide to play; you're having to compromise somehow, which is the story of Payday 2 on the Switch. It is an entirely functional video game that (in most respects) looks, feels and plays like Payday 2, and given the right circumstances, can also be a bit of fun. But given how readily available it is on other platforms and the concessions made with this version, it doesn't highlight Payday 2's unique brand of shooting and looting the way other platforms have for years.
