The Verge: "Despite some MMO design quirks and so-so mechanics, some great writing and coherent visual design set Borderlands 2 apart."
7.5? You gotta be kidding me
The first and probably last mediocre/bad review we'll see given the amount of extremely positive reviews. Maybe the reviewer is more into games like angry birds.
Don't justify the reviewer by clicking.
Why? How would you know if it's a justifiable score if you don't read it?
Buy your pitchforks and torches 'ere! :D :P 'er...rather, your personalized Borderlands weapon to bring justice! From the article: "The shooting still lags behind other first-person frontrunners, and combat too often feels like an afterthought in Borderlands 2's enormous world." "Borderlands 2 is unquestionably a better game than Borderlands. The new emphasis on elemental weapons and dismemberment make for better combat scenarios, and the constant character improvement is a great push forward for players looking for long-term rewards.(--->) But sticking around for those payoffs requires more patience than I'd hoped.(<---)" "There's a sense of a constant grind. The basic gunplay that underpins Borderlands 2 is adequate to get things done. But it's nowhere near the responsiveness and encounter design of more dedicated shooters. The left-trigger aiming mechanic is paired with very aggressive auto-aim, so hitting things isn't a problem — it's just not very exciting. This makes clearing areas devolve into a same-y sort of job, rather than something fun." ____________________ You can turn that off I believe, if not on consoles than I am sorry that something is THAT severe aaand a game is only a (boring) grind when the player doesn't enjoy the content in front of them. Playing the game now, I seriously get a HUGE wave of nostalgia, but also a sense of everything works flawlessly :) and I'm seeing myself always going "oooh, what's that!?" :P
Is the verge trying to be like egde? just saying.
Look have you ever thought that this game dosnt Apeal to everyone yeah a lot of people like it but just respect his review people
I dont even wanna read this review. I will not review this game, beacause i will be playing the s*** out out of him for a long time. I oved the first one, this will be just amazing.
Honestly when I saw the score and the site that it was coming from my first thought was "this has got to be written by Arthur Gies". And I was correct, I've always disliked him as an author and a "journalist". It seems that he has a knack for finding one thing he dislikes and then using that as a driving point in an argument against most games, but he sure as hell loves the Call of Duty games. I still dislike him and his opinions really mean nothing to me. I would like to see Phil Kollar's opinion of the game, he writes for the same website and has always been a terrific journalist and not someone looking for an argument.
