"The one thing worth pointing out between the various platforms is how cool Borderlands 2 can look if you have an awesome PC. The PC version allows plenty of tweaks to draw distance, frame rate and more." - IGN.com
"Borderlands 2 doesn't reach far beyond its predecessor's scope, but it does do almost everything better. Additions, refinements, and fixes all combine to create an appreciably improved experience, one that fully delivers on the promise of the first game." - Gamespot.com
A new era of shoot and loot is about to begin!
Borderlands 2 furthers the distinct blending of First Person Shooter and Role Playing genres to create the true evolution of the Role Playing Shooter. Team up with up to three other players for four-player online goodness, sharing mayhem as you spend hours leveling up your character and equipping them with one of the millions of badass weapons.
Borderlands 2 features a new visually stunning array of procedurally generated guns, shields, grenades, artifacts, enemies and more. Choose one of the four new character classes to be taken through a carefully crafted and connected story to all new and surprising environments across the living planet of Pandora.
Make new friends, arm them to the teeth and fight alongside them on your relentless quest for revenge and redemption.
All-New Characters and Classes:
Four all new playable classes including the Siren, the Commando, the Gunzerker and the Assassin. Step into the role of the Gunzerker, whose highly deadly skills allow him to dual-wield any two weapons found in the game. Not only that, you will build on that skill to do more things with two guns than you ever imagined possible. Dual machine guns? Cool. Dual rocket launchers? Of course! Dual Sniper Rifles? Sure, if that’s your thing! Want to try other styles? More tactical perhaps? There are multiple classes to choose from!
Play Online with Friends:
Share your adventures with friends both online and via LAN through a seamless system enabling you to drop in and drop out of a campaign without ever having to restart the game.
World Connected Story:
Left for dead in the frozen tundra of Pandora, begin your quest of revenge and redemption as the story drives you closer to the Hyperion Corporation and its evil founder, Handsome Jack.
New Badass Gun System:
Millions upon millions of possible weapons means tons of new and innovative ways to engage foes on Pandora. Fire, electricity, corrosive acid, and more will all be at your disposal.
In addition to the new gun system, you will lust after procedurally generated shields, grenades, Relics, class mods and much, much more. And you thought the original Borderlands had a ton of loot!
Brand new environments:
From the arctic tundra, through the dangerous grasslands, past the mysterious corrosive caverns to beyond, discover more of the unpredictable world of Pandora at every turn!
Brand new enemies:
Hulking, gorilla-like Bullymongs, vicious predatory Stalkers and the Hyperion mechanical army, run by Handsome Jack, are just some of the new enemies you will face.

Borderlands 2 has guns... and more guns... and more guns... and even more guns! Interesting character upgrade system to allow for a different experience every time. The game has a lot of guns, too. And while single player is fun, co-op is a MUST for this game. The amount of guns is just too much for one person to handle! Borderlands 2 has memorable protagonists and one hell of a villain. Overall, Borderland 2's story is fantastic, the gameplay phenomenal, and the environments are fitting. Oh, and did I mention the guns?
Awesome Shoot n' Loot!884okeoJ | June 30, 2014 | See all 884okeoJ's reviews »
Borderlands 2 is a great first-person shooter with arsenals stocked full of unique enemies, guns, and loot. The graphic style is great, and the game runs at a rock-solid 60 frames per second without performance stutters or hiccups.
The gameplay is a delight, and the guns feel like they have a real wiehgt behind them. However, even the best gameplay can get repetitive at some point. You can get tired of the same missions over and over again, as there is little variety in quest types.
However, the rest of the game is polished and rewarding to play through. The game's humor is funny at times, but other times it just comes off as puerile. All in all, Borderlands 2 is an immensely satisfying experience that suffers from some repetition, but is ultimately a brilliant shooter.

Best value ever!toshexy | June 28, 2014 | See all toshexy's reviews »
This game is so great, so amazing - such an improvement over the first one. The story is so well though out, the antagonist such a taunt, every single enemy in the game is brilliant... I am literally out of words to describe this.
And for this price - you better grab it fast!
Truly an amazing game!
Borderlands 2 Is More of the same!FALSEPOSiTiVE | June 27, 2014 | See all FALSEPOSiTiVE's reviews »
BL2 is definitely MORE of the same and that's a GOOD thing!
If you saw any of the adverts, you know where I am coming from.
- More guns!
- More characters!
- More Levels!
- More Loot!
- More EVERYTHING!
There is so much DLC in BL2 to expand an already very large game that you'll be occupied for a very, very long time.
If you're a fellow couch potato gamer, you'll be glad to know Borderlands provides controller support.
Playing through the campaign is exciting and fun, but this game is best when enjoyed with friends and/or even strangers online. The co-op is one of the best in any game to date. So if you've grown tired of the usual military themed FPS multiplayers and want something different, this is the title to grab.
The DLC isn't necessary to enjoy Borderlands 2, but I suggest if you find the GOTY on sale to swoop in and purchase it instead.
This is a cross-platform multiplayer.
Be sure to check the system requirements before hand, but BL2 can play reasonably well on even questionable hardware.
So what are you waiting for? Grab it! There's still a large online community if you're worried about that.
