PC PowerPlayOct 11, 2012Delivers on every promise of the original, being an instant classic that proudly stands alongside the PC's finest shooters. [Oct 2012, p.62]
Oct 1, 2012Funnier and brilliant, Borderlands 2 is twice as good as the first episode was, something which isn't always the case for sequels. But Gearbox Software manages to improve their IP in many ways, offering one of these titles you could not possibly forget to buy in 2012, and proposing new features that will allow players to blow off some steam for hours.
Sep 18, 2012It seems crass to judge a game by quantity, but this is quantity of quality. So if the amount of money you spend on games is a practical concern, it's worth saying that this one is freakishly good value. Even if it's not a concern, it's worth saying that this one is freakishly good.

Sep 19, 2012Damn near perfect, even for a console port. It is early on launch day yet it feels crisp and clean. Controlling your character is far easierDamn near perfect, even for a console port. It is early on launch day yet it feels crisp and clean. Controlling your character is far easier this time around as the control are much better developed for the PC. The humor is dark, although the story is a little more serious this time around. About an hour in to the game you really want to kill Handsome Jack, and if you still think he is a cool dude by then you're pretty **** up. If you liked Borderlands you will find that this is a true sequel that lives up to the hype.
They did a great job of melding the story of Borderlands with Borderlands 2. I know, I know they are sequels but GearBox didn't really set the first game up for having a sequel. I guess since the story in the original was kinda of lacking it makes sense that it was easy to mold the two together.
Overall Borderlands 2 is a great improvement on the original connecting with friends is far easier now that Steam has been fully integrated, even though it is still a little buggy when connecting initially. Maybe the best improvement they have made is the size of the game. The world feels large and looks large, not the mention it is beautiful. I can run this game on almost the highest setting on my laptop. (Note: I do have a ASUS RoG laptop designed for games but it is kind of dated) If you have a computer that can handle CoD you will be fine.… Expand
Feb 24, 2014I got hooked from the very beginning, and just enjoyed it as a great fresh change from my other games. Good sense of humor, and cool bossI got hooked from the very beginning, and just enjoyed it as a great fresh change from my other games. Good sense of humor, and cool boss fights made it even better.
The gameplay is a little linear, but in a smart way, so it does not bother that much.
Respawning enemies made it a little worse, and annoying, but I guess it is just me, and no game would be perfect for everyone.
Boss fights might be slightly stressful, and I personally was tired of it, but still after all it rewards with a good feeling of achievement. Besides after getting through the first map, more gun selection awaits, so next boss fights would be less stressful.
Perfectly balanced difficulty makes it a really exciting experience. The bad side of that would be no time to relax. Respawning enemies, boss fights, traps, and constant need to improve, and progress does not leave any room to take a breath, and enjoy the "safe room" time.
But still I have this feeling that I want to go back to it, so why not to leave 9/10? Also there is a multiplayer, for a plus.… Expand
Oct 29, 2012It's great. There are lots of flaws, but the amount of pure fun you get out of it outweighs it all.
Sure the weapons are a lot less variedIt's great. There are lots of flaws, but the amount of pure fun you get out of it outweighs it all.
Sure the weapons are a lot less varied than in BL1, sure the inventory sucks, yeah you can't upgrade your ammo capacity as much as you'd like, and of course that there are a few plot holes, but it doesn't matter, it has great characters, lots of varied missions, many ways to build your characters, quite a bit of replay value and it's very very entertaining overall.… Expand
Nov 4, 2015Like other games Far Cry 3 & Dead Space this has unlockable skill levels as you plays on. Look like Halo & Final Fantasy games - visuals lookLike other games Far Cry 3 & Dead Space this has unlockable skill levels as you plays on. Look like Halo & Final Fantasy games - visuals look cartoon like, though 3D. Fortress & camps layout like Far Cry 3.
Navigations & mission systems are of the game STALKER's. Some part of this is like Serious Sam. And ... Deus Ex was a once high score game, could someone point to me which part of this game has resemblance to it? May be it's weapon systems that has a lot of selections?
Look childish & console based, that's how Halo sells so well. But mixing it with cruelty & some little horror theme? Confusing!
Takes a good mind to learn how to use the inventory system, swap guns. Finding waypoints that went way out of the mapped map view with no pointed arrow ... huh?! Went into a new region that player don't has enough XP points and Level to venture on, impossible to kill anything in the new region, but able to break mineral rocks to collect level 30 XP weapons that can be sold for over $1,000 while back in the "normal" region you only get to pick up $1 to $3 from cabinets?
Too much works put into this one, end up with not such a big mess. Playable, but knew better why other game makers wont' venture down this kind of path since it's not cost effective & less in revenue return.… Expand

I've been forcing myself to play this game and I've finally gave up after just less than 20 hours in. Wasn't worth my $7.50
- Boring a Tedious Questing Adventure, Yes the old and outdated WoW Style.
- World is completely static, predictable and boring, with a few roaming enemies.
- Main story and characters have been boring.
- Abilites and Talent points mediocre & boring, (Based on Zer0 only)
- Single player is very boring.
- No need for a loot system, it's not an MMO. With that said not much reason for replayability.
-Cringy attempts to recycle areas with revisits and constant enemy respawning.
+ Awesome Art Style.
Conclusion: Like a boring game with the old game mechanics of MMO's in a first person view with great stylized art? This game is for you.… Expand
