Great game, lower price = Awesome dealzveer1 | June 19, 2014 | Review of Borderlands 2: Game of the Year Edition
While Bordelands 2 is a great game, has a lot of content, it's funny, fun to play, what would make it even better? Simple, more of that :). By adding 2 new playable characters and 5 other DLC into the GOTY edition, the value of the game has gone up. Were you sad when you completed quests for certain people in the game? Cough* Tiny cough* Tina. Then be happy now, even more fun and even crazier stuff to do. You should not miss this experience.
BIgger and betterzveer1 | June 14, 2014 | Review of Borderlands 2
Gearbox Software sure took the complains of people and made Borderlands 2 a better game by fixing all the balance issues from Borderlands. For example over powered revolvers are now not that good but in line with other pistols, and rocket launchers are way more powerful. Gaming experience has not changed much, the main goal is still the same: kill enemies and do quests to earn experience and level up your character and get better items by doing that. Some even say that there is not enough new in here. I do agree that there is not much new, but why change a wining formula? Adding or changing too much would just take away from the original concept. As in the first Borderlands, here we also have 4 playable characters, similar but not the same as before. Items are pretty much the same but some do have better effects, even some really funny ones. As before you can play solo or with friends (up to 4 players). Co-op here is more fun than solo for most people but I am glad that we have an option for solo play. Quests are varied, from simple to just funny, some even sad. Not gonna spoil too much, but there is a quest that says to kill yourself. As for the number of quests, I counted over 90 in the base game alone, not even counting main quests. To conclude: great sequel, fixed stuff from first game, plenty to do, lot of DLC if you complete it all.All together a must have game.
Very good blend of RPG and FPS elementszveer1 | June 10, 2014 | Review of Borderlands
Borderlands, a great combination of RPG elements like gaining levels and spending skills points on desired skills with a fast pace FPS, It has a lot of different passive skills, 4 characters to choose from, ton of weapons with various effects and some humor. It can be played as a single player or in co-op where co-op makes enemies stronger but it gives better rewards so it's worth it
Granted, there are some mistakes like balancing the power of revolvers that are much more powerful than snipers or rocket launchers.
Quests are various from standards like go get that and bring it or kill that guy to funny and creative ones so they don't get boring. Total number is probably around 100 if not more of side quests distributed by maps so you don't have access to all at once making it a nice way to get more experience between main missions and to have fun.
By doing all the quests the games has to offer you will be playing at least 50 or more hours so it was worth it's money when it was new, now it's a must have.
