  • Summary: Borderlands 2 furthers the distinct blending of First Person Shooter and Role Playing genres to create the true evolution of the Role Playing Shooter. Team up with up to three other players for four-player online goodness or go old-school with two-player split-screen couch sharing mayhem as you spend hours leveling up your character and equipping them with one of the millions of badass weapons. Borderlands 2 features a new visually stunning array of procedurally generated guns, shields, grenades, artifacts, enemies and more. Choose one of the four new character classes to be taken through a carefully crafted and connected story to all new and surprising environments across the living planet of Pandora. Make new friends, arm them to the teeth and fight alongside them on your relentless quest for revenge and redemption. Expand

    Borderlands 2 is instantly one of the best games the Vita has to offer, and a sign that maybe, just maybe, those initial promises of it being a portable console in your pocket weren't that far from reality.

    Borderlands 2 is a great game to play in bursts, and the handheld format lends itself to this type of game perfectly.

    It definitely has problems, but Borderlands 2 is still mighty fun on Vita.

    Not so nice to watch, hard to handle and full of glitches, this new entry isn't really what we were waiting for.
  5. Borderlands 2 has been a really bad port.
  6. 60
    Borderlands 2 is serious fun, but has serious problems.

    Released and patched, but still not ready for release - Borderlands and the Vita deserve better.

    After reading all these bad critic reviews I was scared to buy this game but then decided to get it anyway and try it. I do not know what they played but I have original vita and downloaded copy of game and it runs great my only issue is I throw a grenade by accident every now and then. If you are on the fence about buying its definitely worth it. Expand

    This game can easily be forgiven for the little let downs. Once about an hour in your fully sold and ready to put in many more. A great buy at only £20 for a near console quality game on the go. Expand

    First and foremost; IGNORE THE CRITICS. This is a well-made, incredibly fluent console port, and Iron Galaxy have done an amazing job. The critics seem to have completely sandbagged this because it doesn't play exactly like its PC counterpart, and honestly a lot of their writing reads like amateur dreck.

    If you own a Vita and like Borderlands 2, and aren't expecting 1080p and 60fps, you will love this. It's as simple as that. I'm not a reviewer with a pretentious axe to grind; I'm just a gamer.

    I was worried about the critic reviews but I've learned to take reviews of Vita ports with a huge grain of salt. I've played a bunch on PS3 and have not been let down by this port to any large extent. Yes, the hardware is fighting to put everything on screen in a smooth fashion and a number of corners were cut - but this is still a very fun game that is huge and crazy deep. It may be too big a game for the Vita to reproduce perfectly but I am still having a great time with this. Thanks Iron Galaxy. Expand

    This game has too many DLCs. Even though it is fun and looks good, the developer or publisher is trying to make the maximum money out of the game with mostly annoying, overpriced and pointless DLCs. Join the Anti-DLC-Force! Expand
