I loved the first one and this one just completely blew away the first one. I laugh every time i play it. It has a amazing story and on top of that its funny. this game is good for anyone who likes a good laugh or just likes to go around and make face gravy out of everything you see.
First of all this game is addicting. There is so much for you to explore in such an open world. There are more guns than ever. And Borderlands 2 is just plain out better than Borderlands. To get into detail there is a story, which was not in Borderlands, that is surprisingly really good. The characters are hilarious, but my favorite has to be Handsome Jack. He is such an idiot to you through the whole experience pulling off funny jokes to get you mad. The gameplay is very good to say the least. You will run into numerous glitches, and you will die alot, literally alot. But you really can't get mad, least I didn't. The graphics are just like Borderlands. And gearbox really made this game replay able. To cap the review off this is a must buy, 9.5/10.
Overrated game but still quite fun
I bought into the hype of this game when it was released and loved it just for the story alone. After the hype faded and I started to play the game again I started to notice many problems with this game. The millions of guns you'll find in this game is actually not as many that was in the first game and sadly most of the guns feel very samey. Enemies are bullet sponges and just overwhelm you if you play by yourself. The game is "harder" because of that and it makes the game feel more frustrating than fun unless you play with friends. Literally the game would not be that great in comparison to the first game without the story (specifically Jack) and better refined classes.
This Game is Claptrap Approved
I am going to attempt at a very helpful review here for all who might be interested in buying this overly fantastic game. There is a simple way to describe the game play of Borderlands (the chew is implied)... this game is revolutionary. Take the well known and loved First Person Shooter genre, now take my personal favorite RPG genre, now bare with me here, snatch a pinch of some great vehicle design and a dash, well better yet let's just dump the whole bottle, of humor in there... and waddya know, here comes along Borderlands, the combination of every fantastic aspect of gaming. It's as if they took the thrill of an FPS but took out the six year olds making rude jokes, instead it's fat mechanics and dubstep robots doing it :) They took the amazing variety of enemies and foes of RPGs and expanded it and took every enemy from every kind of game ever and smooshed em all into one. Then, they pulled the essence of a fantastic loot system of RPGs, but instead of gold necklaces and bronze greaves you find rifles that shoot fire and electricity and grenades that bury your foes in acid. Every character you play as has their own special skill sets, yet you can pick and choose between certain skill focuses to make each class the same yet very different. It's the gift that keeps on giving in my opinion, folks. You get a baffling challenge in combat with a huge array of bosses and mini-bosses to keep fighting unique, and every character you speak to and interact with will either 1. Attempt to slaughter you mercilessly 2. Awe you with their awesome powers 3. Make you laugh 'till you wet yourself or 4. All of the above. I can't even begin to explain how ridiculously crazy and sweet this game is, and with worthwhile DLCs it makes the fun last. The multiplayer is amazing so I advise you to buy it while the day is young my friends.
Long-Lasting hours of Gameplay
this game is much better than borderlands 1 and the characters are much better as well, they make you want to redo the game as a different character although its kindy hard with the difference in levels but this game is definetly worth a buy
awsome but a little disapointing
i love this game but why did they have to get rid of the theme song andchange the charcters i miss brick
The game is very cartoonish. If I were you I wouldent get this game. Very bad gameplay. DO NOT GET THIS GAME!!!!
One of the best of the best game I've played!
This is fun, awesome, badass, and you can't stop playing this game. Ever since I got this game I play it all the time (better than COD). This game is a mixture between diablo, world at Warcraft, FPS games. Get it and you will love it!
this game is just plain awesome
this game was just great i liked EVERYTHING about it the graphics make it look like a comic book so i thought that was really cool.The campaign is very long and it is like you get to choose what class you want there is four classes one siren,gunzerker,assassin,or commando.the siren is like a necromancer.the gunzerker is someone who can dual wield ANY two weapons on the game.The assassin is the person that has a sniper and a huge sword which he can decapitate some ones head or slit there neck.the game altogether is just so great.I would recommend this game to any one who loves first person shooters and role playing!
The game is a first person shooter but it's not as direct as it seems and it is challenging . The graphics are amazing and the game does not dissapoint but it is quite tough. The dlc is thievery and that should be included in the game from when the game is purchased.
