Borderlands 2 Review | WGTC

"These days, the video game industry is rather routine when it comes to sequels and prequels. However, even though that’s true, we have been blessed with some impressive new intellectual properties over the course of this console generation. Of course, if one were to poll a group of individuals, different favourites would be mentioned, but I’d have to go with Borderlands, Gearbox Software’s smash hit first-person shooter/RPG mixture. Up until its 2009 release, there hadn’t been anything quite like it, and its nearly perfect melding of two great genres resulted in fantastic gameplay, which was complemented by creative settings and an interesting storyline filled with unique characters. Plus, it allowed for amazing drop-in, drop-out co-operative play between four friends."

It's well-worth picking up.

If you liked the original. Just put everything you liked about the original in a box, and increase the size by double. It's basically more of the same, but everything is vastly improved; especially the story. HIGH recommend playing it.

Agreed. A lot of people seem to be disappointed that B2 is "more of the same" but to me, in this generation where excellent IPs get horrid sequels that are drastically changed from the original in an effort to gain more sales, I'm 100% ok with Borderlands 2 sticking with the same formula. Don't believe the statements about it being a ripoff or "should have been DLC", it's well worth the $60 to me and stands well on it's own as a full game. Gearbox seems poised to support B2 at least as well as B1 with DLC so it's bound to be a nice, long ride.

The first game had a few rough spots and repetitive sections and so does B2, though a lot less of both it seems. Plus there are a lot of improvements, both little and big, obvious and not-so-obvious. If you liked the first one, you will love the second. If you loved the first one, you will love this one more. If you hated the first one, well you will probably hate this one too unless you are back on your medication. ;D

It's worth it just for Mal.
