A fun loot grind that plays a bit too similar to its predecessorXbob42 | Nov. 8, 2014 | See all Xbob42's reviews »
Borderlands 2, at its best, is an addictive loot grind with your friends, blowing up psychos and collecting whatever pops out of their corpses. The hunt for legendary items is seemingly endless, but it comes with its own set of problems.
First, the game plays far too similar to the first Borderlands. The gunplay is nearly identical, feeling weak and non-impactful. There's only one usable ability per class, which is what hurts the gameplay most, but more on that later. The quest structure is uninspired and simplistic, and the movement is slow and floaty.
Then comes the issue that the game's plethora of guns actually makes the game less interesting instead of moreso. In the first game, finding a new gun usually meant it'd have a different playstyle than your current weapon but be more powerful, so you'd happily switch. Borderlands 2 fails in this regard as they tried to differentiate the guns beyond what was required. The end result is that you'll most likely find one very specific gun that "feels" right and stick with it, because other weapon types are so wildly different that the act of firing them becomes unfun and they just feel weaker.
The game looks fine, at the time of this review the Pre-Sequel is already out and they both look about the same. Cartoonish, moderately decent textures, games tend to run fine on most systems so long as lower-end machines don't try to push PhysX.
The DLC is a mixed bag as always, with Tiny Tina's being the high point. I was one of the few who really liked the character of Tiny Tina, but even if you hate her, the stuff they do in her DLC is really fun and interesting. Trust me.
Overall, the game plays well, but it's more of the same. If you're okay with that, go for it! Totally worth it. If you've never played a Borderlands game, go for it! Also totally worth it. But for someone like me, who was hoping for a bigger more fun variety of weapons and abilities, it just felt a little too samey.

Kill, loot, buy stuff with loot, use stuff to kill more...loot again.
That's basically Borderlands. I was honestly never a fan of the first one. I found it bland and repetitive and preferred games like Diablo if I wanted a non-stop loot-fest.
Borderlands 2 changes much of the sense of tedium with a story with actual stakes as well as humorous writing.
The game can get dull quite fast, however, without friends to play it with. This is definitely a Co-Op game.
Good game, perfect co-oppatacon | Nov. 2, 2014 | See all patacon's reviews »
This game features some very original decent graphics to be the sequel to the first, is a game that will give you hours of entertainment and if you play with a friend, much better, has some side quests you will give eager to complete them all, the gameplay is perfect, the only problem is the lag, so I step is trying to play with a friend, it was impossible, we live close by and also we could not play, or for errors or does not work well the server, removing eo is a good game, if you have a good computer and a good internet connection (If they want to play with a friend) I totally recommend it. My score is 8.5 / 10

This is by far one of the best games I have played to date, it has amazing gameplay, a good story and although the graphics aren't the fancy type of graphics its still a really good looking game. I have put more hours into this than I have any other game and I would recommend everyone to buy the game, it is full of humor and fun!
