Kotaku: "I loved Borderlands, the way you love memories of a summer or a semester when you first read a favorite book. Yet writing up impressions of a game like Borderlands 2 is quite difficult, actually. Where do you begin? 'Hey, remember that game from October 2009 that inhaled 80 hours of your time? Well, get ready for a whole lot more of that.' Because Borderlands 2, structurally, was instantly, drop-in-like-it's-2010-aga in familiar for me."
