Top 50 Title:
"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. Play as one of four new vault hunters facing off against a massive new world of creatures, psychos and the evil mastermind, Handsome Jack. Make new friends, arm them with a bazillion weapons and fight alongside them in 4 player co-op on a relentless quest for revenge and redemption across the undiscovered and unpredictable living planet.
Borderlands 2 follows the story of four new Vault Hunters as they fight to free Pandora from the clutches of Handsome Jack, the brilliant, charismatic, and utterly despicable CEO of the Hyperion Corporation. Players will fight across the whole of Pandora to stop Jack from awakening an ancient alien evil known only as "the Warrior." Their quest will bring them into contact with some familiar faces from the old game – most notably, the original four Vault Hunters: Roland, Lilith, Brick and Mordecai. They, along with some brand new characters, will help players defeat Jack, destroy the Warrior, and save Pandora.
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.
I can't wait for the Pre-SequelDingusaurus | Oct. 1, 2014 | See all Dingusaurus's reviews »
This game is absolutely fantastic. The art style is great, the humor is amazing, the enemies are interesting and challenging, and the story is pretty good as well. There are a huge variety of weapons available for you to use, which adds to the experience. The missions you go on can keep you entertained for hours, and the game has an incredible amount of replay value, and the DLC just adds to that value. I have already preordered the next game in the series because I fell in love with this game, and I can't wait.

I really enjoyed this game. My one friends who mainly plays call of duty bought it and thinks that it is the best game of all time. While i'm not sure i can agree with him i do think it is the best game to come out in the last five years. The main thing about borderlands that will determine whether or not you will have a good time or a great time is how much you enjoy looting. Without looting you have a very fun open world shooter with a competent story and charming characters. Then they add looting. Gun looting allows you to use a great manner of cool guns. You can ask any friend about this game and he will tell you about his first legendary. The problem with looting is that it breaks the flow of gameplay constantly. So if you don't like looting this may not be the game for you. If you like shooter and games like diablo then borderlands is right up your alley.
One of the best co-op games available.mrwaffles210 | Sept. 1, 2014 | See all mrwaffles210's reviews »
First off I recommend you have friends who own and are willing to play this game, That being said single player is still enjoyable.
Pros: This game has a great graphic style hilarious characters & story There is a large variety of guns, missions & enemies.
Cons: Gameplay can be a bit repetitive, a lot of missions consist of go here kill that, but this is made up for with the characters you meet along the way.
great game!KuraiHiNoSenshi | Aug. 12, 2014 | See all KuraiHiNoSenshi's reviews »
with a very large arsenal this games weapon count is huge no two weapons are the same with all of the different modifications. the voice acting is stellar it fuses serious moments with comical whimsy thatll be sure to make you smile the characters from the first installment are still here with some new ones added in to make the game even funnier. the gameplay is solid and smooth easily switching between different weapons and your action skill to maximize your overall damage output for a very well balanced gaming experience and with tons of dlc and different difficulties/playable characters the game has a lot of replay value
One of the Best Games Available on Steam for the Money...LunarMemories | Aug. 11, 2014 | See all LunarMemories's reviews »
This game hits all the marks. It is hard without needing to grind as long as other games... The comedy is a great motivator to move on in the story. There are thousands of hidden jokes/jems hidden throughout the story. My favorite has to be the "Tiny Tina's Assault on Dragon Keep"... The Developers spend lots of time making their game comical and entertaining with actual combat.
Everything is as balanced as can be. Lots of ability to customize or delve deep-ish into the story, or skip it an just kill stuff. Very Entertaining Overall...
