A Step Up From The Startthawley2k | Oct. 11, 2013 | Review of Borderlands 2: Game of the Year Edition (NA)
First of all, borderlands 2 has surpassed the original borderlands in multiple ways. The soundtrack is gripping and appropriate for the areas you encounter. The areas you explore are larger in size and it allows for more exploration. The enemies are without a doubt, harder to defeat and it forces you to venture out and level up before moving forward in the game. With all the extra skins and modifications you can use, this makes exploring for upgrades all the more worth it. Last on the list is the multitude of weapons included, which really set the bar from the first game. Starting with the game itself and not dipping into the DLC, allows for multiple hours of fun and strategy as you level up, upgrade your gear and ultimately, defeat Handsome Jack. Borderlands 2 has a consistency of keeping the player interested and not just sending the player from point a to point b as the first game did. There is a definite increase in creativity with the characters that were created for this game and it ultimately sealed the deal for many. For the price of $60 being asked, this game is without a doubt, worth the purchase. From making grenades doing the unlikely, to getting the chance of blowing stuff up with the record setting number of weapons included, this game has it all.
