To buy or not to buy...

temckeehan | Dec. 12, 2012 | Review of Borderlands 2 (NA) DNS

To be honest, I debated purchasing this game when it first came out. Having burned myself out on the first title, I wasn't sure I would enjoy it. My friend however picked it up, so I took the opportunity to try it out for free. Needless to say, within the week, I owned my own copy. This game is very enjoyable, and it rekindled my love for the series. The gameplay is spot on, and I had little problems with the controls, or searching the menus. Everything seemed to be pretty intuitive. The story line is awesome, and very funny. The only downside I had with this game was the multiplayer loot system. You have to be quick to pick stuff up when you play with your friends if they are the same class, and it takes the focus away from enjoying the game and more about trying to get to the loot first. I prefer the loot systems where each player gets his or her own loot. My only other complaint is the talent system was the same, and while I don't mind the talent system, it would have been nice to see something more fresh, or just a little different. I did enjoy the Badass points though.

Overall, its a must have game for any gamers collection, and I am glad I purchased my copy. If you found yourself bored with the first one, as I did, I would suggest giving it a shot, especially as it starts to fall in price, I bought mine for 59.99 and was happy with my purchase.
