    Borderlands 2 VR is most certainly a highlight of this year’s VR releases and one of the best titles yet to hit PlayStation VR. Its still Borderlands 2, sure, but you’ve never played Borderlands 2 like this before.

    Borderlands 2 holds up pretty well, and in VR it feels like almost a brand new experience. The gunplay changes quite a lot, and being in Pandora is really, really cool.

    Like Skyrim's VR port, Borderlands 2 VR feels like a curio. It's a fun way to revisit a modern classic, but isn't the best way to actually play the game. As a VR title, it's excellent, but I'd argue if you're looking to get caught up before Borderlands 3, you'll find it more comfortable to do so in the Handsome Collection.

    Borderlands 2 VR is a very good game that can still be enjoyed in VR, but it lacks some alternative controls and its multiplayer to fulfill its potential.

    It could have been a fantastic VR porting but this version of Borderlands 2 lacks any previously released DLCs and PlayStation Aim controller support. Too Bad.

    This porting fails to address many aspects that required VR-focused re-work. In additions, content cuts like the absence of co-op mode essentially make this version of Borderlands 2 sub-par to the original game.
  7. 50
    Despite the original PlayStation 3 version of Borderlands 2 ending up with an aggregate score of 91 per cent on Metacritic. It’s hard to recommend this PlayStation VR release. It does contain all of what made Borderlands 2 a delightful game, but it's the inferior version, trading comfortable controls, co-op and DLC for the marginal thrill of having a 360-degree perspective on the world.

    Far from ideal but still a great game, and the best reason to plunge into the world of the Borderlands again!

I never liked BL2 until I played it in VR with the ps aim controller - the combination of holding a gun while in VR is an experience unparalleled in terms of immersion - a game way ahead of its time - seems that the dumb masses have an aversion to strapping into vr - damn pubs, which makes VR moving forward sort of unviable commercially, which screws the dedicated community.
    More on the ps aim - the tracking is perfect and there’s something so cathartic about rotating the gun sideways like a gangsta and blowing someone’s head off.
    Where the F is sniper elite VR?? BL 2 VR demonstrates the true strength and potential of the ps aim controller.

    Welcome again to the badass lands of serial killers and maniacs. Graphics are normal and enough for vr. Gameplay is awesome. Some new skillsWelcome again to the badass lands of serial killers and maniacs. Graphics are normal and enough for vr. Gameplay is awesome. Some new skills and polished game. You’ll take the wheel in first-person and actually drive vehicles like you would in real life if using the ps move controllers. Drive like a mad man. %100 fun and adrenaline. A+! Expand

    I loved Borderlands 1 and 2! Now I have a reason to play the second Part again and I love it!

    It's not a perfect VR Game, but it's just what I need! You have to get used to the Move Controller, but after some hours it will work better and better! I can't wait to visit the later levels of the game!

    Everybody should also keep in mind, that it is the first Borderlands VR Game, I'm quite sure Gearbox will work on the game and do some tweaks! There are many "cheap" VR Games out there, compared to these experiences, that let you only play some hours before getting bored, I can give this game a 9 out of 10, because I completed it years ago and I know what kind of fun is waiting for me, believe me, even without DLC's its a huge game!

    Merry Christmas everybody!

    One of the best looking game in PS VR. Despite it's a 6 year old game, it have a beautiful visual style and high resolution on fat console.One of the best looking game in PS VR. Despite it's a 6 year old game, it have a beautiful visual style and high resolution on fat console. Move support is not perfect. In combat it's too hard to move, evade, strafe, turn, shoot, reload at same time. No Aim support, but developers promise add it with patches. No DLC, this disappointing, but maybe them will be added later. Expand

    Very fun game but the aiming is hard and this game gives me more motion sickness than typical PSVR games.

    Very disappointing. Move controller support is awful. Teleport move is very slow to engage and seems to get blocked by invisible walls ifVery disappointing. Move controller support is awful. Teleport move is very slow to engage and seems to get blocked by invisible walls if you're not standing way out in the open, making it essentially unusable around any kind of background cover or uneven terrain. The guns all have a big floating crosshair that you can't turn off and doesn't even look like it's aligned with the iron-sights on some of the weapons. Scopes on weapons don't work like scopes, they just show a floating monitor 2 meters in front of you, which has a very low FPS render of the flat scope view on it. Guns can only be held one-handed - no grabbing the front of your gun to steady your aim. The game is marginally better if played on a joypad, but you lose most of the benefits of VR and a lot of the immersion playing that way, so what's the point? A great shame. Cheap cash-grab port.
