This version is handicapped by its lack of voice communication tools. Even if it's updated to parity with the PC version, that's a tough pill to swallow in such a cooperative game.

The flawed original is already showing its age, but this poor quality Switch port is Payday 2 at its very worst.

It is an entirely functional video game that (in most respects) looks, feels and plays like Payday 2, and given the right circumstances, can also be a bit of fun. But given how readily available it is on other platforms and the concessions made with this version, it doesn't highlight Payday 2's unique brand of shooting and looting the way other platforms have for years.

Payday 2 reveals its worst in the Nintendo Switch. Even though it is not a bad port, the Overkill game and the Nintendo Switch does not seem to get along. Good gameplay, but this is the worst version of the game nowadays.

Payday 2 is definitely getting long in the tooth, but the game's appearance on Nintendo Switch is a good, solid port of the game. All of the same quirks and quibbles remain the same, there's the lingering question from how the game has been supported in the past, and there's the simple fact that we've seen all of this in higher fidelity elsewhere, but if you've got a burning desire for some co-op heisting fun on Switch, then this will scratch your itch to live outside the law.

Payday 2 still is a very solid and funny cooperative shooter even on Switch, despite the lack of some content (heists, masks) you can find in the PC version.

An old style remake that is beginning to be "too old for this shit" in terms of gameplay and visuals.

When played with friends, Payday 2 is the ultimate heist game, offering tons to see, do, and unlock.

It's difficult to recommend Payday 2 for Nintendo Switch. On one hand, it is the most content-complete version of Payday 2. On the other hand, it's still a five-year-old game that really hasn't aged that well and doesn't seem to have all the updates that other versions have received. One would hope this would be the most definitive version of Payday 2, but it appears that the team at Overkill still has some work to do to iron out the bugs.

Should you get Payday 2 on Switch? Well if you want an interesting multiplayer shooter and don't have access to it on other platforms, sure. Otherwise? Probably not. Maybe wait to see how things are after an update or two.
