Borderlands 2 Gets So Much Right, But Gets One Thing Very Wrong

Kotaku - Borderlands 2 is funny, smart, and gorgeous. The controls are tight, hooking up with other players is a dream, and the PC port is one of the best I've ever seen. The Torgue campaign is hilarious and memorable, just like previous campaigns. It seems like the game's hitting all the right buttons.

I am with DragonKnight. I voted down Kotaku as well. Such a crappy website indeed with sour flavor of unwanted sensationalism all over the website.

My personal gripes with borderline is that its too much shootery - i know its a shooter but some areas are filled with so many enemies it Can get a bit tedious. Especially an area you cleared out before

And my other is the difficulty can appear somewhat.. Schizophrenic at times..? You'll level up and things will be really easy then halfway through that level suddenly enemies will out of the blue get really tough. Obviously they level with you but sometimes the system is a bit off. Its still a great game though.

"My personal gripes with borderline is that its too much shootery"

@ DOMination-

Yes, Borderline does seem to have some issues. Might I suggest you try Borderlands 2 instead? I would definitely recommend it as a superior shooter to Borderline. Oh, you seem to dislike "too much shootery", so may I also suggest you don't buy a First Person Shooter game as they tend to contain a lot of shootery parts? :)

P.S. I know it was obviously a type-o Dom, just playin' with ya :)

Baylex1407d ago

LOL you should check what borderline is on google. Because yes it is schizophrenic at times LOL

Just watch what you're writting will ya?

DOMination-1407d ago

showtimefolks1407d ago


like we actually care about a site only looking for hits. go out of business

TheTwelve1408d ago

Tired of all the Kotaku articles on N4G about now...

KwietStorm1408d ago

Seriously what's with the recent influx

ThanatosDMC1407d ago

It doesnt seem to lose stars though.

Young_ART1408d ago

Now, this is my opinion,
but I feel they should try to get in contact with Inifinity Ward/Treyarch, and get some tips on how to alter the AI. Because the AI in call of duty is just downright remarkable.

FarCryLover1821408d ago

Remarkably good? Or Remarkably bad?

caseh1408d ago

I'm going to go with not serious due to the use of the words 'downright' and 'remarkable' in the same sentence when refering to CoD.

RXL1408d ago

or works for Treyarch/Infinity Ward

onyoursistersback1408d ago

I think your mistaking AI with animation?!
Other then that, you are way wrong!

spektical1408d ago

o yea, cod AI is amazing. I love how the enemies know where you are at every time. Phenomenal.

Dorwrath1408d ago

Really? Played BLOPS 2 and id be standing in an open space and they could walk straight past me.

@ Young_ART- your a idiot .that is all

DeFFeR1407d ago

"your a idiot"



Sarcasm1407d ago

lol the irony


You're an idiot.


You are an idiot.

Reverent1408d ago (Edited 1408d ago )

You have to be kidding.. CoD's AI is literally some of the, if not, THE worst AI this gen. They're like shooting at paper targets.

They are literally so scripted that if you run just an inch passed their spawn point, they'll completely ignore you and run off to wherever the game set them to run to, EVEN if you were to physically collide with them in the process.

Either you are straight up trolling us, or you have absolutely no idea what "AI" means. In case you don't (which I'm assuming is the case) , AI stands for "Artificial Intelligence".

Sounds like a personal problem. Sounds like he's looking for something to complain about. The game is what it is. If you're looking for it to be something else, go play something else. I look at the enemies you go up against in this game and they aren't exactly Mensa candidates. So no, I don't expect them to be very tactical. Gearbox definitely made the AI smarter than it was in the first game, but yeah, it's definitely a game where you shoot stuff. It almost seems like that surprises the writer.

Oh well.

Tetsujin1408d ago

Oh look, once again its Kotaku complaining about something, and one less hit from me for their site as well.
