Over the last 5 days, people who owned PAYDAY2 were treated to a new game to test, called RAID: World War II.
According to the website:
THE NAZIS ARE WINNING AND WE NEED DRASTIC MEASURES
RAID: World War II is an action-packed four player cooperative shooter set during a time when the Nazi war machine was still going strong. During the worldwide fight against evil, four prisoners of war are freed from a gestapo jail to take down Hitler and his Third Reich once and for all – and get rich while doing it.
Players can choose from four different classes with their own highly developed skill tree and War Cry – a powerful ability that can be unleashed to buff yourself or the entire team.
PAYDAY2 is a pretty well developed and popular game, and the developers have taken this same formula and applied it to this game. The action is fast, with a few puzzles to solve, lots of shooting, and relatively funny one liners from players. Top that off with John Cleese making an appearance in cut scenes and you have a very entertaining and fun game. I don’t play PAYDAY2 (I have an hour or so in it), however, this game would be great to play with a few friends in multiplayer mode. You can also play single player, with AI companions (who fortunately don’t like to let you die, and run over and revive you).
If you like these sort of mission/task oriented games, and World War II stuff (and John Cleese), then this game is worth having a look at, and IMHO is more enjoyable than PAYDAY2.
