Borderlands 2 Review | ScrewAttack

ScrewAttack: "Borderlands 2 takes everything that was right about the first game and makes it slightly better. The feel of combat is virtually the same, the loot fest can turn anyone into a gun-junkie, and the multiplayer co-op is great. Everything is a marginal improvement, so there isn't any high-adrenaline moments that makes the gameplay truly stand out. Still, it's an engaging experience. You keep on playing because of the desire to defeat the villain, playing with friends, and finding the next great gun. Anyone looking for a new kind of shooter, or fans returning from the original, will be pleased." (Borderlands 2, PC, PS3, Xbox 360) 8/10

To each his own of course but I have a hard time seeing anyone not give this game at the very least a 9/10. This is coming from someone who only saw the first one as maybe an 8/10.

Borderlands 2 is just such a huge improvement over the first one imo.

Fun factor alone (not even including the humor, length and replayability) is a 9.5 for me.

I agree. My friend says goty. I am not so sure yet as money is on ac3 or dishonored. I am a huge fan of new ips. But this game has no weaknesses. Everything is improved including the stoqry. We will see how they handle dlc as this game yearns for end game content . Maybe i understand his sentiment that it is very familiar if u played the first. But man, this is a damn good game.

Can't stand what they've done with the shooting. Just aiming down the sights has this crazy swaying affect now and too many of the guns shoot pellets instead of bullets...

The story is pretty damn good though and I'm glad they made Claptrap a bigger part of the game.

Loved how General Knoxx would occasionally pop is and say something hilarious. I feel like they've gone a bit overboard with Handsome Jack.

I've also bumped into a few glitches, but luckily the game saves often enough to where it's not that big of a deal.

Not too fond of the classes either. They feel underpowered in comparison to the previous vault hunters. Maya is decent but the rest of them....

I'd give the game an 8 as well.

@Camel
what's the difference between an 8, a 9, and a 9.5 aside from 1 and .5?

Heh in my eyes an 8 is a "play if you have nothing better to play" and a 9 or higher is a must-play.

Btw my friend said the same thing about the classes as you did but I guess because I just didn't enjoy the first one as much I either haven't noticed the classes lacking or it's just a matter of play style.
