What a sequel should be

deceptive_yoshi | May 5, 2013 | Review of Borderlands 2 (NA) Overflow

The first game had it's issues but it was an overall good game for those who had the patience and the friends to deal with the first rough hours. Borderlands 2 however starts out with a bang and is a much better game overall. The story isn't game of the year worthy but it is pretty good in my opinion. The antagonist Handsome Jack is hilarious and helps drive you to complete the main story but I have to say that he is probably my favorite antagonist since Glados from Portal.

The looting and gunning is much better, the game is nice and long and it has tons of options for you to tinker with in the video settings as well as much better optimized. The classes are all fun and you're bound to find one that fits your taste. Unfortunately the game does use memes as part of it's jokes at times and while they're good for a giggle now they will most likely lose the humor after a year like most memes do. This is not part of the review score but all I can say about the DLCs is that they are a complete hit or miss.
