IGN: Borderlands 2 Video Review

When you’ve managed to create an unexpectedly great first entry for a franchise, it begs the question: What the hell do you do with the sequel? In the case of Borderlands 2 developer Gearbox has decided to largely stick with what worked the first time around, while implementing a host of tweaks that make it an overall superior game. A few relatively minor complaints aside, Borderlands 2 improves not only the narrative, but almost every major game system. If you’ve been itching for a reason to jump back into the world of Pandora, Borderlands 2 provides a more than ample supply.

Soon... this game will be in our hands

Sucks that Im in uni... I have to wait, or my marks will drop down the drain

mewhy322256d ago

I've already preordered this game for the 360 weeks ago. I'm very excited. Can't wait to go back to Pandora.

MuhammadJA2256d ago

Agreed. This will be a better purchase than RE6.

Steam version for me!

geth1gh2256d ago

I wonder when we will be able to pre-load it? I hope they give us ample time to actually have it downloaded by midnight launch.

Megaton2256d ago

Pre-load is live. Did mine this morning. You might have to restart Steam if it's not available to you.

Now that they added colors besides 9 shades of brown I also like the Art style.

This game is what the first one was supposed to be so it better be good. And sounds like it's living up to the hype.

The first one was what it was supposed to be, awesome. This one looks even better though.

I loved Borderlands and I'm sure I'll love this one even more. One of the best co op games this generation in my opinion!

Lucretia2256d ago

hope it has more enemy and enviorment variety than part 1. i couldnt finish the first game let alone play more than 20 hours of it.

my friends gettin it so i will try it again :P

Nimblest-Assassin2256d ago

Here is a picture of all the enemies in BL2... enough variety for yah?


Oh and btw... there is a huge variety in the environment

Acid seas, metropolises, industrial areas, volcanoes, seas, etc

CrimsonessCross2256d ago (Edited 2256d ago )

I found Zapdos! :3

But yeah I agree on the environment and enemies...
Better AI, more variety of everything makes the game that much more awesome :D

Oh, and one more thing. I wonder who the person is that is hiding between a couple of those golems... x) (between the yellow and purple, black hair with a part that has white hair O.o)

FunAndGun2256d ago

@ CrimsonessCross

The guy with the dark hair and white stripe is Handsome Jack; the games antagonist.
