The thing that makes a sequel great is when it improves on all aspects of the original. Borderlands 2 did just that. If you played the first game and then picked up Borderlands 2, you will see right from the start that Gearbox sought to top their success. Borderlands 2 opened up parts of Pandora that we did not know existed, and gave us even more guns to play with. This follow-up is more fun, more engaging, more badass, and with improvements on all throughout, Borderlands 2 is one of the best games of the year.
