    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.

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

    Are you kidding me critics? BL2 on the vita is worth MUCH MORE than 65. It comes with 6 dlc packs, I'm only level 14 and I'm 7 hours in, theAre you kidding me critics? BL2 on the vita is worth MUCH MORE than 65. It comes with 6 dlc packs, I'm only level 14 and I'm 7 hours in, the only real problem is at times the framerate drops, most of the time it's smooth, but at times it just gets really choppy. Its also crashed about 3 times on me, and before it crashed I had some brief audio problems, but the multiplayer and storymode are so much fun it's more than forgivable. Expand

    So I will buy this game and I will follow users comments,because they know the console,they know the truth.

    Very Clear that this game is not getting fair reviews going by what the most review sites are putting out.
    Personally i think that its a fine game on the vita, controls are a bit weird at first till you figure them out.
    All in all the game runs smoothly and looks good.
    Don't be put off by so many negative reviews.

Game playsPlayed this quite a bit on the XB360, so I was excited to see it came with the PS Vita (plus the first half of the add-ons!!) Game plays quite nicely on the Vita, especially when compared to the performance of other handhelds. One and only complaint is how easy it is to accidentally activate on screen abilities (either throwing a grenade when trying to aim or activating the character abilities while moving.) As a side note, I'm sure some people are upset about it, but I find it rather amusing that every single enemy explodes on death, which I can only imagine is done to prevent the system from being bogged down from rendering 100's of dead bodies at a time. Overall, great port of an amazing game! Expand

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!
