"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.
Excellent value for your moneyAmehmo | Sept. 12, 2014 | See all Amehmo's reviews »
This game combines many aspects of other game such as being an fps, an rpg and having a great story! what more could you ask for. There is so much to do in the massive world of Pandora that you will never find yourself idle or bored. My point being that for the amount of money that you will pay, you will receive WAY more hours of game play than any other game, and its such a re-playable game too. My only thoughts on improvements would be to make it massively multiplayer, but that's just me :P

This game combines many aspects of other games into one, it's an fps, an rpg and it has a great story. What more could you possibly ask for. Now if I am perfectly honest I did find the beginning of the game slow to start off with, but then I am also rather impatient. Once you're deep enough into the story though there is just so much to explore that you will never find yourself bored or tired of this game. It's one of those games that are just so re-playable. I think the main point I am trying to make here is that the amount of money you will spend on this game is far less than the amount of game hours you will receive from it, making it far more value than most other games. The only thing I think I could have possibly asked for would be for it to be massively multiplayer, but that's just me ;P.
Sequel that's better than the originalfuzeblu | July 29, 2014 | See all fuzeblu's reviews »
Borderlands 2 takes what's good from Borderlands 1 and shaves off much of the monotony that plagued the first one. They added a very interesting story arch with a fantastic buildup, characters that you love to hate and hate to lose, more enemy variety and difficulty, various world locations with great art and design, and tons. Tons. TONS. Of awesome weapons. This is by far one of the better or best FPS RPGs of this generation. It's unique to itself. The humor, style, and world immerse you and unleash the bullet-crazy-loot-addict that you truly are. Buy it. Play it. Enjoy every minute of it.
Had more fun with the first one.Furrek | July 28, 2014 | See all Furrek's reviews »
This is just my review about this game, keep that in mind.
Borderlands 2 is a game where there is more of new everything. Starting from new character classes, which I don't find any more unique than the ones from Borderlands 1. New gun system? I had more fun with weapons from Borderlands 1. Not sure what's new here, because there was already weapons with fire, electricity and other elementals, maybe just one or two things that are other, but I don't think it will make a whole gun system "new". Maybe I wasn't so lucky, or haven't played long enough (is about 50 hours long enough?) but I didn't managed to notice and millions of weapons combinations - most of them were same, or slightly better, no drastic changes. Story is just fine, only Handsome Jack was an interesting character. Well, at least to the certain moment which was... lame. I don't want to spoil anything, so I can't say that, but if you will reach a end of game you will see. So before everybody will eat me, I must tell that DLCs for this game is a different story. They are much more interesting, so far I did played 2 of them, but I have much more fun than playing Borderlands 2 main story. I'm sure that this game should be played by everyone - but some people might just not like this like first game. Just remember about one thing - just like in Borderlands 1 case, play it with friends only, or find some online friends. It's totally unplayable alone, because it's not game you want and you can play alone.

Welcome into the world of the drawn heroes and monsters. The co-op is which i found most fun to play. There are tons of weapons,side missions and DLC's. The story is pretty good for a first person shooter which makes the game even more interesting, you can just travel among the game and choose better gear than yours, or just pick something handy from the store. There is a lot of action in the game and also it has those rpgs elements which is making the game more popular and wanted, the co-op still has a lot of players so pick it up while the community are loving the game. Pretty good rpg- shooter game.
