PAYDAY 2 is a four player heist simulation game. The heist planning mechanics are shallow at best, and realism takes second seat, but don't let that put you off. The RPG and FPS mechanics are solid, and heists due to RNG and the varying playstyles have a fairly large degree of replayability. It's definitely a difficult game, especially on higher difficulties, but it's not inheritly unfair. PAYDAY takes pride in having a plot and general gameplay that wouldn't be out of place in a B-rated action flick. It's a very silly game, that doesn't take itself especially seriously. Something most players realize when they successfully beat an FBI agent to death with a wad of hundred dollar bills--over a rather extensive period.
With that said, with the variety of objectives, tactics, equipment, weapons, and potential builds, on top of the constant updates, PAYDAY doesn't get old, and doesn't use silliness as a crutch. It's a competent game with a lot of depth for a FPS. Unfortunately, due to the focus on teamwork, synergy, and build diversity, it's a game best played with friends, and solo-play, or public games are liable to end in frustration--though a suitably skilled player can solo most if not all heists in the game.
DLC may seem daunting, but the money gained from them goes back into the game to produce new content free for all members. Moreover, you don't need heist DLC to play the heist--just to host it--so there's no worries there. While there is some legitimately overpowered DLC packs, the base game carries enough options for you to make a viable character on every difficulty and heist. They're completely unessecary, and merely open up more options for playstyles.
On the flipside, there's a fairly limited amount of heists, and after awhile, even the RNG aspects on the level design will become mundane, Payday 2 can become very monotonous, farming for experience, and cash by doing heists over and over again.
I don't recommend Payday if you are looking for a realistic FPS, if you want a hardcore crime simulator, a complex plot, or a single-player campaign. For it is none of those things. However, I will recommend Payday if you're looking for a crime based FPS to play together with friends. The game itself is solid, well supported, and has a strong community, on it's own it is definitely worth the buy assuming you can find someone to play it with.
