The second instalment of Gearbox’s Borderlands series has hit the shelves. Borderlands 2 offers guns galore as well as killing bandits, alien monsters and even more bandits to your heart’s content. When the original Borderlands was released over three years ago it offered something new to gamers. Its unique cell-shaded graphics and quirky murderous charm all helped to make it a brilliant game. Not only does Borderlands 2 have to stand up to the shadow of its predecessor, it has to prove itself against its competitors for this quarter (the FIFA’s, the Call of Duty’s and the Assassins Creed’s) for its rightful place in your game collection. I think it’s done just that.
