Payday 2 Review: Very Fun, Still Consistently Unplayable | Leviathyn

Within a few weeks, 505 Games and Starbreeze's new multiplayer co-op shooter Payday 2 will probably be a legitimately fun and deep online experience, despite minor gameplay reservations. But at this stage, the crime.net servers and matchmaking system is just too broken and unplayable to get any serious mileage out of the game. (PAYDAY 2, PC, PS3, Xbox 360) 7/10

Weird. I've been playing on 360 since last Thursday and never had a problem finding a game or getting people to join me.

The game is freaking awesome, sounds like they need to fix the PS3 version, though.

It's the same on the PC even on the latest patch #6 the matchmaking is still terrible. Takes me at least 30 mins to get in a game, once I'm in it's great but its so hard to get in a game without loosing connection with all the different server errors.

I have not had a single problem on the PC. Check your router NAT. Make sure it is set to open.

Its fine, as I said I can get into games I just have to fight through server errors for at least 30 mins before I get into a game. It's a problem with the servers, the strange thing is I can get into the Bank heist easily 90% of the time but I'm fed up playing that level.

It is slightly better now that update #6 improved the netcode but only just.

I spoke to soon, when someone uses the buzz saw to open locks, the audio of it lingers even when the game is complete and money and so is dispersed. The only way to stop it is to restart the game.

Haven't had any of the public game issues, due to playing with three of my closest friends online, rather than having to play with randoms :) the game does have a few niggles, here are there, but overall, it is a game that provides tons of fun, especially if you play with friends
