"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.
Okay alone, really fun with friendsMurderbot735 | July 29, 2015 | See all Murderbot735's reviews »
This game is for the most part okay alone, but it is obvious that it wasn't designed for that. The “fight for your life” (kill an enemy while lying on the ground to get up on your feet) feels like a complement to reviving, but since there is no one to revive you, it's just frustrating when an enemy hides and you can't shoot him and dies because of that. Played with a friend however, that is not a problem. As long as you friend can get to you, you're fine. There are also some attacks by harder enemies that feel unfair, but that's not a big problem when played with at least one other person. The shooting is pretty enjoyable, with a lot of guns. Most of the ones that drop are pretty bad and just gets sold instantly, but you encounter new and interesting weapons often enough to keep you playing. There’s a good amount of enemies: psychos who blindly runs towards you, people with flame-throwers, different beasts, different robots and much more. There’s also some funny dialogue between them, and they have some funny comments when getting shot. The story is also fun, and Handsome Jack is a great villain. Just the base game has a lot of content, but if you want more I really recommend the GoTY-edition.
Funny, Crazy and perfect for co-op Borderlands 2casi9095 | July 18, 2015 | See all casi9095's reviews »
Simply the best co-op game in stores now. If you play alone it lose a bit of "fun factor", because is played with friends that this game gain all its power. Level cap 50, but main story and sidequest finish in level 35. With this said, there are more and more play option like true hunter and final hunter that will invite you to play again and again to acquire a lot of fantastic loot from chests all around the world and from enemies. The only flaw for this fantastic game is that the unlimited "gold keys" will help you very much in the game, opening chest in primary town that provide you with very powerful and OP guns. But if you do not use these guns you will reach the pinnacle of the true meaning of this game.
Even better than the firstThe1337N00Bx | July 18, 2015 | See all The1337N00Bx's reviews »
I liked this one even more than the first Borderlands. It had a much better storyline in my opinion, plus the main antagonist, Handsome Jack, is one of my favorite antagonists in any game. There are so many great lines in this game and adds plenty of comedy to this action packed game. There are plenty of weapons to find and enemies to fight. Plus like the first, there are plenty of unique boss battles that are insanely fun and a giant open world to explore. Plus with the 4 player coop, there's even more fun to be had with friends.
Borderlands 2, more refined.gamma_rad | July 11, 2015 | See all gamma_rad's reviews »
To put it simply, if you liked Borderlands 1 you'll love Borderlands 2. It is the same gem, only slightly more polished. FPS-RPG hybrid with a strong emphesis of Co-op gameplay. the game is rather humorous, the story has improved and there is more variety in the game map. New fun characters. Just like the previous game there is also plenty of DLC content to keep you around for long after the base game is done.

Borderlands 2 fulfills much of what Borderlands missed out on. While the gameplay elements remain mostly the same, a few enhancements such as its graphical capabilities, and a better multiplayer experience means that fans of the first installment will definitely enjoy this sequel. The battle for Pandora continues with the discovery of Eridium bars, new weapons, shields, and other loot along your travels. While I do recommend this game, I'd emphasise that it is much better suited to multiplayer action with a group of friends to complete the storyline mode. Not only does it make things easier, the new elements introduced makes for great interaction.
