Raid is terrific fun in co-op, with interesting objectives and fine leveling and upgrade systems. If you're looking for a cooperative multiplayer-focused alternative to this fall's other big World War II game, you can't go wrong with RAID.

On a whole, RAID: World War II feels exactly like what you'd expect from a Payday clone. It takes less of a political approach than other games featuring Nazis such as Wolfenstein or the upcoming Call of Duty: WW2, and instead moves away from the ‘war is hell' narrative to opt for a more hyper-violent, stylised approach to the subject matter. While the choice of game engine severely lets itself down, there is still much to appreciate if you enjoy other co-operative shooters of its type.

RAID: World War II is a tale of two games. On one hand, I really like the world that the game exists in and the character it tries to infuse into it, as well as the large maps to explore and learn. On the other hand, the game is lacking an online community, which this type of game really needs. Couple that with the dated look of the game, and I think the title misses the mark.

An unusual approach to WWII games, Raid is a FPS based on the PayDay model. 4 player coop brings some fun moments, but technical failures (especially concerning AI and graphics) ruin the experience.

But even with all its flaws, major and minor, the game is filled with moments of hilarity and high tension. Playing alone or with friends, the simplistic mission design that always has you sneaking about or sprinting for your life is a blast to take part in. There's a deluge of customization options that is only matched by the Payday games and the humor is surprisingly consistent. RAID: World War II can be frustrating at times, but there's a lot of fun to be had with friends.

Overall, I really like the theme and setting of RAID: WWII, especially considering its irreverent tone that evokes memories of Inglorious Basterds. But even though I'm a sucker for all things WWII, the bullet-spongy enemies, lackluster unlocks and customization, and poor mission variety don't excite me enough to want to play beyond a few rounds. And while it's putting the cart before the horse, without a strong community of users to drop into a raid with, there's even less reason to stick it to Nazi Germany in this particular instance. Very little in RAID: WWII is absurdly broken or flawed, but its mediocrity makes it a missed opportunity to create a highly replayable co-op game within the WWII shooter genre.

RAID: World War II is an FPS that gives the impression of looking like a beta and not a complete game. Although the idea is good it loses personality everywhere. Graphically it is a very old-fashioned game, with alarming drops of frames and a null AI. As a positive thing, we want to mention the scenes with real actors.

The missions are designed with replayability in mind, but the game needs a serious overhaul in A.I. and controls to justify spending more time with it

RAID: World War 2 is PayDay 2 with Inglorious Bastards, but it does not end up having neither the charm of the game of robbery nor of the film of Tarantino.

RAID: World War II failed to capture the magic that makes the Payday franchise so popular. Although Lion Game Lion has worked on the franchise, this game features disappointing AI, costly technical issues, and other glaring issues. It's not beyond repair, however, if they wish to continue supporting the game long-term, as the gist of running raids with friends online and stealing Naxi treasures is something that is quite appealing. There are basic customization options for characters, but the amount of time it will take to grind proficiencies is disappointing. It is such as shame that I couldn't be more positive on a game that includes FMV sequences with John Cleese.
