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
