Packs quite a fun punch!mark_sam_91 | April 19, 2014 | Review of Borderlands 2
Finished off the game a few weeks ago. I'm not a huge First Person Shooter fan, but I really loved the experience this game offers. It kept me engaged for the 30 hours or so that I played it quite easily.
No need to really go into the story all that much. Quickly, the player choices a bounty hunter and he has to try to reach the vault that contains an ancient monster before the villain does, who happens to be the hilarious Handsome Jack.
Now, to the gameplay. Borderlands 2 managed to mix FPS elements with RPG elements effortlessly. The gun fighting is fast paced and requires a bit of finesse from the player too. Each character also has special abilities which allow for an array of powers. So, its fun to play around with different characters.
The quests can be kind of dull at times, although its an improvement over the first game. There is a bit more variety, but most of the time its simple 'go kill him' or 'get me that'. But the game-play is so much fun, that I didn't really mind.
I'd recommend this game to anyone looking for a good time.
