Gearbox fell onto something amazing when they put the kill, loot, level, repeat system into the trappings of an FPS. In fact, once it was finally done it made many people question why this hadn't been done years ago, as the two concepts fit so well together in BL1. Fast forward to today and you have version 2.0, a game with characters that have actually useful skills, maps that don't ALL look the same, enemies that have patterns OTHER than run straight at you (skags, rakk, psychos still do, but much more variation comes about this time) there's a passable story, ease of travel has been kicked up a notch, and most importantly, ALL of the guns are FUN. Any complaints are minor. Run in with glee as a psycho requests to be your boyfriend whilst hurling an axe at your face.
Speaking of their gameplay the game moves very well, their graphic comic style look just amazing. The game is very good to play alone but the real soul of this is to play it with friends. A mistake I found in the multiplayer is that one can be at a much higher level than that of your friends and that disrupts the game a lot and makes it very unequal.
Borderlands was a series that put me off for a while because of it's art style. Plus, the first game didn't really interest me in terms of story and gameplay. I just didn't like the Borderlands series. My mind was changed the first time I played Borderlands 2. It improves on the first one in every conceivable way. Better story, better villain, better guns, better enemies, better locations, etc. I couldn't put it down. It's a fun shooter with off-beat humor and an emphasis on cooperative play with friends. This is a game everybody should play at least once.
This is not a game for everyone. I absolutely hated every second I experienced. The story is so boring its forgettable. The game is incredibly linear with load screens all over. The art style and graphics are horrible. The humor is juvenile and ever funny. Not to mention, the gameplay is repetitive and never improves. The only positive I can attribute to this game is weapon customization. Outside of that, everything else is horrendous. There are far better shooters and coop experiences that you can play. This game is not what it's cracked up to be and I wouldn't even waste $5 on it if it's on sale.
This is a looter-shooter, plain and simple. It does that part very well, and can be engaging for hundreds of hours. I highly suggest playing with friends, since it has that MMO feel. The humor in these games aren't particularly for me, but I know some people really enjoy it.
