"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.
A weird, but an awesome gameArmannn | March 25, 2015 | See all Armannn's reviews »
There are many things that made Borderlands 2 be one of those great shooters when it first came out: a very interesting planet, strange characters, a lot of cool missions and many "awards".
Sadly, in the second part of the game there's almost no novelties, but all the things are still here and seem to be much better than in the previous game. The most impactful difference would be that Pandora now looks much better.
Once, planets used to be inhabited by only "barbarians" and beasts. Well, actually, planets are still inhabited by the same beasts with the only difference that in Borderlands 2 it doesn't look lonely thanks to the fun characters that have been put in the game.
Some great characters have been added to the game, like the arrogant Handsome Jack and Tiny Tina. The story is full of Jack searching for a tomb in which is hidden something very valuable (I ain't telling any details). Luckily (for him), he's got some robots and criminals to help him.
Overall a pretty nice game which you can enjoy playing.

Great game, no need to put much time explaining why you should play it... rather to say that you MUST buy GAME OF THE YEAR version of the game, do not buy standard version! I'm dead serious!!! I know you may thing "meh not big deal, i'm sure I can have fun with the normal length of the game" You sure will, but you will be missing like 70% of extra content that this game real is about... think that the "normal" version is only 30% of the entire package what this game have to offer (needless to say you will often find the goty version on sale)
Regarding the game itself, tho might be "dead" with the pre-sequel being live, you will always find people to play it! everyone will be always happy to join in and have crazy dumb fun in this awesome game! (it is also 100 times more fun then the pre-sequel)
That's all! Have Fun!

This game is truly endless hours of fun! There are so many side quests and easter eggs throughout this game. It is awesome for co op. Finally a game with awesome co op. The different character types are awesome, especially when you get the DLC. I cannot recommend this game enough! It is so much fun.

Borderlands 2 is a great game with good graphics, amazing story, funny humor, good sound and a great Co-op! The story-line keeps you hungry for more and in almost every mission you will meet funny and Bad-A$$ characters. I think the game is worth buying with friends, and it provides us a great story and a good co-op to play with your friends. I overall recommend buying this game but some people might not love/connect with the game. Finally, I give it a rate of 90/100. It's a great game!
Best game of 2012TokiMC | Jan. 7, 2015 | See all TokiMC's reviews »
Borderlands 2 is one of the best games of 2012. It has all the components of an FPS RPG, and does not overdo anything. It has great voice acting, and the screams and taunts of the actors are very convincing, especially Handsome Jack. The world is almost 3 times larger than the last parts, and the story picks up from the last parts very nicely. It has new classes with unique skills, pros and cons. There is also a lot of enemy variety. Bandits, robots, worms, armored spiders and flying monsters are just some of the bad guys you will kill in this game. And it has a gun which fires swords.
