After loving BL1, I was hesitant when I was playing this game...However I decided to give it a try and was far from dissipated. The secondary characters are lovable, a despicable evil ruler, a funny robot, and a damsel in distress. The game is full of missions, and crazy adventures to go on, just great. The only issue I have is that it is not an open world game, so after you beat it you have to start from the beginning so the level cap increases, but even though you got to do that is just as enjoyable/
One of the best FPS-RPG hybrids out there.Jacobeanthomas | July 15, 2015 | See all Jacobeanthomas's reviews »
I haven't played the first Borderlands. I admit, at first I didn't understand all the buzz with BL 2, seemed like a cartoon-y shooter to me. Then the GOTY edition went on sale here in GMG for like $10, so I said what the hell and just bought it. That was the best gaming decision I've made so far. This game is funny, engaging, challenging-- just pure fun. It can cater to all types of people, casual players who just want to shoot stuff and finish the game, and the perfectionists who want to get the perfect gun. I've logged in about 40-50 hours into the game, and that was even before I got started on the DLCs. If you're still not convinced, try to take a leap of faith. I assure you it's well worth the risk.
Mediocre alone, pretty fun with friendsMurderbot735 | July 14, 2015 | See all Murderbot735's reviews »
This game is really not made to be played alone. Some bosses have insta-killing moves that are almost completely unpredictable, and the "Fight for your life"-mechanic is just incredibly frustrating. It requires you to get a kill, but that's very annoying if the enemies are fleeing or are far away, since it requires you to fire from the hip. Anyway, with friends this is pretty fun. The environments are very varying, and there's a decent amount of different enemies. The combat itself isn't super awesome in my opinion. I'm not exactly sure why, the gunplay just doesn't feel right to me. Guns are not that satisfying to use, I think. The story is funny and has an awesome villain, and most side quests are pretty nice too. The graphics are good, but I guess that's subjective. I like the art style and the design on enemies and stuff. I like the skill trees which you get a point in every time you level up. There's a lot of possible ways to play the game, since every class has three skill trees which determines what guns they use, modifies their abilities and more. The port is good and it's nicely optimized. The options menu has a lot of options and I don't think anything is missing. I think you should get this if you have at least one friend to play with. If not, it may be worth to try during a sale if you have much money and time.

Aside from the fact that the GOTY edition doesn't really contain every dowloadable content released for the core game, this is a pretty nice pack to pick up. The main storyline of BL2 is not something you can breeze through in one sitting, same goes for the 4 large story DLCs, making the experience last for 100+ hours. Two extra playable characters (rising the number to 6) and a lot of extra goodies are also part of this edition, making this the purchase you're looking for, if you haven't bought BL2, but always wanted to. Early bird gets the worm but the patient bird gets like 4 worms and a 20kg sack of bird seed, or so it seems.
Controls Better, Looks Worse, Even Less Interesting.sycomantis1991 | May 15, 2015 | See all sycomantis1991's reviews »
In this game, you wake up in a blinding and ugly valley of ice with Claptrap screaming in your ear. It's almost as if the game is trying to warn you not to venture forth. Unfortunately, I did just that. My stepbrother owns this game, so I figure I'd give it a chance, I've heard it's "even better" than the first game, but I thought that was brutally overrated, but still, worth a shot with so many potential "brothers in arms" within the fanbase. The art went from weird and ugly at times to horrible in this entry. I'm not an artist at all, but I can still recognize quality art, and moreso I can recognize when something doesn't work, and at least to me, this doesn't. The coloring and linework is inconsistent, and the snow levels, which at leastthe first few hours exclusively take place in are just blinding light blue landscapes with triangles as little ice mountains. It's bad and completely unimmersive. The "comedy" is even worse to boot. I chuckled once or twice during the first game, but I literally got mad at how bad some of these jokes are. I will say that the gameplay is improved. it's still nothing special, but it's competent enough now to provide some joy and make you feel relatively in control of your weapons. Overall, I don't think I'll ever get the appeal of this series. Even taking my standards for art and humor out of the equation, it's still an uninterestin and substandard shooter at best.
