The Vortex Effect: Good news minions, if you enjoyed Borderlands then you will absolutely love Borderlands 2. The sequel to the surprise (to me) hit doesn’t change with the formula that made the first so successful. It’s more of the same, and that’s not bad thing as Borderlands 2 is bigger and better than the original. It’s everything you’d hope a sequel to be. There is a ton to do in Borderlands 2; the main story is lengthy and it is supplemented by a lot of side quests that will keep you busy for some time.
