Thanks for sharing.

I didn't spend much time with the original Borderlands, but the sequel has certainly enjoyed huge critical success.

Think I'll be picking this up shortly. I need a good co-op fix for my PS3, which has been neglected lately.

I know exactly how you feel.

I spent 15 hours on Border 1 and came away incredibly bored, never to play it again.

I'm already on 21 hours with 2, have tried out 2 of the classes and am finding it seriously difficult to spend my free time on anything else.

It's a very well made sequel, honestly.

Its your opinion and i respect it, but imo i think after playing it for 5 hours straight, it gets really really repetitive and boring, story is good but not great.

I give it a

8.0 Graphics
8.0 Sound
7.5 Gameplay
7.5 Fun factor
8.5 Online

Overall a 7.5/10

What's the difference between Gameplay and Fun factor?
Krew_92  +   672d ago
I would guess Gameplay is how good the controls are, and how well everything is put together in the game. Like if the jump controls are okay, or if the character moves sluggishly those kind of things.

For fun factor I would imagine it being how fun the game is, as in if the game rewards you enough when completing tasks, or if it's satisfying to kill enemies and what not. I measure this as if the game feels like a chore to complete, the fun factor is not there, but if you want to be doing the task, the fun factor IS there.

For this game though I would rate Fun Factor about a 9/10 since co-op makes it endless fun.

It's really up to the reviewer to explain in the text or the comment section. To me, it comes off as the 'one-on-one' conversation the reviewer has with the viewers to say: "other qualities not listed resonated with me more than expected."

Since there's no dedicated list for story, storytelling, atmosphere, etc, they typically end up in that spot for me.

You know, the game is GREAT. But a 10/10? I know it's your opinion blah blah blah. Overall i think VERY few games deserve a perfect score. I just didn't really see why you gave it a 10. I just wanted you to justify a little more why you think it's perfect.

Well, when you are reviewing a game, I feel that you reserve the right to give it any score you personally feel it's worth. To me, personally, the game is pretty much perfect. It's one of the most fun games I've played all year, and when it comes down to it, entertainment is all that really, truly matters in any form of media. I completely respect and understand your opinion and where you're coming from, but like I said, my rating is my own personal opinion of the game and is merely there to give others a simple idea of another gamer's impression of it.

Great review

This game is also one of the first games this year to be worth the $60 retail price tag for me as well. I loved Borderlands 1, but believe Borderlands 2 has surpassed it in almost every way. A lot of fun solo or co-op.
