GamesBeat: Borderlands 2 nearly perfects the blend of shooter and role-playing game (review)

Loot. It is the desire of every fan of role-playing games. The need for better stats, the want for something that looks cooler, the desire to know that your items are better than your friend's.

Guns. The addiction of the shooter player. They come in many shapes and sizes, but they all serve one goal: killing.

The original Borderlands gained a lot of praise for combining the shooter with loot-based RPGs like Diablo. Developer Gearbox Software basically invented a genre. And now, it nearly perfects it. (Borderlands 2, PC, PS3, Xbox 360) 92/100

Can't wait till the third one. It's supposed to have a real-money auction house and always-online functionality.

Hey, finally a sequel to an FPS that I actually finished.
roblef  +   892d ago
I never finished the first one, so I hope this one keeps me interested. I'm not too much into the gun porn.

I never got into this game. I actually just saw some gameplay for the first time just now on youtube, I didnt even know it was a fps/role playing game. seems like theres a lot of hype for this game. based off the reviews its a well deserved hype.

it this a game that I should look into getting later on?

No you shouldn't look into getting it later on. You should get it tomorrow, it's worth it.
Bathyj  +   892d ago
Yes. I never got into either.

Gave it another try on the weekend. Many late nights/early mornings later I've played about 30 hours since friday

But do I shoot things? Is there shooting things? I'm unclear if this game lets me shoot things.
Tolkoto  +   892d ago
You will shoot a lot things. I promise.
darkronin229  +   892d ago
Promised myself I'd beat the first one, DLC and all, before I jump into this...but I think I might just crack and pick it up tomorrow.

I really hope I can solo this one with a siren again. I did play co-op, but not much.
