Ahhh Borderlands 2. A sequel to already an awesome game developed by 2K Games. Back when I was still new to FPS's I mainly played Counter Strike so when I had the opportunity to check out Borderlands 1 I played it and I fell in love with it. However, the game had a big amount of flaws to me. The maps were buggy, the locations were boring, the last boss was a total joke, and the most important of all, the weapons and enemies are all uninteresting. Now let's fast forward to the time when Borderlands 2 came out. To be fair I was hesitating whether to play it or not but when I did, It was a completely different experience. The boring deserts and wastelands of Borderlands 1 were gone and in their place we got snowy mountains, cities, toxic caves, green hills and much more. The final boss fight with Handsome Jack was a lot cooler and a lot more satisfying than waiting for the bullet sponge boss of the 1st Borderlands to die. The attack patterns are unique and unpredictable plus the boss is using the enviroment which you fight it in and every characters skill can be used against him. Now, let's look at Borderlands 1 boss. He can only attack with 3 of his design attack and only 1 out of 4 available character's skill does something against him, a turret. Now let's look at the main aspect of borderlands. The 1.6 billion weapons. There are 8 weapon manufacturers in Borderlands. The first one Bandit focuses on magazine size and increased reload speed but otherwise below average stats. The second Dahl are burst-fire when aiming down sights and semi/fully automatic when firing from hip The third Hyperion have initially very low accuracy, but the more you shoot the better the accuracy is. The fourth Jakobs specialize in High damage and are always semi-automatic The fifth Maliwan always has a specified element attached to it from one of the four: Fire, Corrosion, Slag, Shock. The sixth Tediore have very fast reload times and are thrown like a grenade when they run our of ammo. The seventh Torgue always deal explosive damage And the last Vladof are known for a very high rate of fire. Additionally all the weapons have a specified theme, for example Jakobs has a western theme. Some weapons are unique in their own way, for example there is a pistol that never runs out of ammo, rocket launcher that makes nuclear explosion or even a shotgun that shoots swords that explode. Now into the enemies. The enemies in Borderlands 1 were mainly Bandits, Guardins of the Vault and Pandora's wildlife. In Borderlands 2 however they added more wildlife so even more things want you dead and added robots to the mix. If you don't feel like playing Borderlands 1 after this review don't be discouraged! It's still a great game. But if you really want to skip it, go ahead Borderlands 2 has a different plotline then the first one other than a few returning characters and minor references, so you won't be losing much. So in the end Borderlands 2 came out as an Excellent game and improved every aspect of the prequel and that's why I decided to give it a 5/5.
If you liked Borderlands 1, you will absolutely love 2. Tons and tons of weapon variations, grenade mods to give you some edge against some of the coolest enemy AI I've seen. The AI is much more responsive to when you hit them and those lunatics aren't so crazy anymore. Now they know how to dodge. Gear up with your friends or jump on some online jolly cooperation and I'm sure you will never get bored. 5/7 would get again
Borderlands 2 is a masterpiece, I cannot stress this enough how good this game is. While I don't like all shooting games this part stole my heart. I had so much fun traveling all blowing stuff on Pandora. If you want to try what the series is all about get this version as it contains all the released DLC because it offers big amount of content including amazing Tiny Tina's RPG session which is hilarious!
While Borderlands 2 is a great followup to the original game, a lot of the additional DLC and some of the changes gave me a bit of a difficult time, everything was a bit more scattered in this game, and as the DLC was coming out, it was really annoying to have top adjust if I wasn't heavily interested in what was being released, but beyond that, let's get to the positives. This is the Game of the Year Edition, so all my DLC fussing, out the window, you pretty much have the completed game instantly, no additions later on, which is good because it's a whole lot of game, especially with the DLC and the DLC characters. If you liked Borderlands you'll like Borderlands 2, the story is directly continued, but with new characters, you'll see many familiar faces around throughout the story, I won't spoil who, but if you liked Borderlands and played it, you'll be happy to see them. The gameplay is very similar, you have new characters or classes this time around with some more interesting ones being added as DLC, for me specifically Krieg was the most interesting, the idea of being a melee based character in Borderlands? It was annoying at first but honestly after getting used to it, it's a pretty unique ride through the game. Overall I recommend Borderlands 2: Game of the Year Edition, not as much as I recommend the classic first title in the series, but if you've played that one, then you should definitely go ahead and treat yourself to the next step in the series, you won't be disappointed.
If you have 3 friends, and a lot of free time to kill, this is the perfect game for you. We literally had houndreds of hours yust driving around like maniacs. Good times. The game doesn't require a lot of resources, not even when there are for of you. My machine tended to slow down in other games, when there were lots of characters on screen, but here, no such thing. I crashed maybe twice, and lost connection a few times, but nothing too bad. This pack has all the dlc's wich is a great deal. Seriously, for this price, I'D buy it four times, if i didn't own it already.
