"Borderlands 2 ends with the simple statement, "No rest for the wicked." By no coincidence, a similarly named song by the band Cage the Elephant acted as the player's introduction to the world of Pandora three years ago with the release of the first Borderlands game. There couldn't be a more apt philosophy to describe a game that is, at its core, a nonstop festival of ultraviolence and black comedy. It's a game where plot takes a backseat to character and substance a backseat to style. It's a game that is so far over the top that it's reached the moon, built a giant laser on it, and blown you up. And yet, even though it's an addictively fun, thoroughly entertaining, and genuinely engaging title, it could have been better."
