A Colorful, Addictive, Humorous adventure

codylamp | Oct. 16, 2013 | Review of Borderlands 2 (NA)

    I had my doubts that Borderlands 2 was going to fall short of the great game play of its predecessor. I am glad to say I was very wrong. Everything in this title has been improved upon and polished to a fine sheen. The gun play and skill trees are both exciting and rewarding . Gearbox has also made it very easy to experiment with your skills by allowing you to reset them at any customization computer. On the gun play aspect, everything is very heavily polished and the shooting, with the thousands of guns available, feels great. The story has also been fleshed out, which is a great thing because Borderlands 1 plot was paper thin. Also the game is littered with lots of humor which is a plus as too many games take themselves seriously today. In the end Borderlands 2 is a great game that is brimming with content, even at the base game level. It is full of colorful characters and environments that are worth exploring and it even has a few surprises plot wise that are very cool. If you're a fan of the first, you will fall in love with the second.
