"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.

The borderlands franchise is in my favorite game list and this installment doesn't disappoint excluding the weapons system. It has all the action and adventure you would expect from the first Borderlands with all new enemies. As for the weapons system, it was painful. I could never tell if a weapon was an upgrade or not without spending an hour in the shooting range. You get weapons that seem better until you find out they have a stability problem or similar issue. You end up ignoring it all together and just using the weapon you have. The weapons in the first installment were easier to follow. All things considered though, I completed the game and would highly recommend it to others.

In a world of grey-brown serious warfare FPS, Borderlands 2 stands out as a brightly colored fart joke. In reality Borderlands 2 is much better written than a fart joke but that doesn't mean it's above them. Already we're striking right at the heart of what makes this game so popular and compelling, it's just fun, with one caveat. That is that while it's fun enough solo, the real beauty of this game is the co-op play.
Stepping back a little, at it's core Borederlands 2 is an open world FPS. Layered on top are some RPG like skill trees and quest system and topped off with a heavy dose looting and, if it interests you, loot grinding. This brings us to the guns, who's quantity is accurately described as a plethora. To some extent all the gun drops feature some randomization, which is where the grinding can come in. The stat randomization also extends to your shield, grenade mod, class mod, and relic. This mean gameplay typically breaks down into: Travel to quest location, complete objective while killing many things, spend some quality time in your inventory comparing gear and doing math in your head, repeat. This might start dragging on pretty quick but the varied enemies, colorful world (with it's timeless cel shaded style), unique NPCs, compelling story, and spot on humor do more than enough to keep the game a joy.
While best experienced with 3 friends, Borderlands 2 as enough to offer most any player that it's not necessary. Which is good because it's a game that everyone should play.
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.
