Edge:Don’t let the arsenal fool you. Payday 2 is a stealth game. You might have a vast array of guns, attachments and armour at your disposal, but they’re contingency measures. The real aim of the game is to get in, get out and get paid without alerting the authorities: the perfect heist. It’s an obsession that only intensifies with every failure – every time you’re caught on camera, a cashier triggers a silent alarm, or a passer-by hears gunfire and whips out their mobile phone, you learn a little more about how Payday 2 functions. Early on, you’ll shoot your way out, past the ever-strengthening waves of police assault teams. Later, you’ll urge the host to quit and start afresh, hoping the algorithm that drives the game’s dynamic missions deals you a kinder hand.
