    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.

    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

    8.5/10

    This game is excellent I don't understand the low scores at all. I haven't played BL before so this is a new experience for me and after a few hours I love it. The devs have done a great job of implementing the moves into the game given the hardware limitations and the locomotion works fine (I don't suffer from motion sickness) however the lack of AIM support is baffling it would be perfect for this game - 100% needs to be provided via an update patch. The graphics are also very good and the action is non-stop. If you're looking for the next great game to play in VR then this is it. Only other minor complaint is the lack of animation for simple things like climbing ladders and reloading... this just seems a bit lazy in 2019!!

Looting,Borderlands 2 VR is a must have have for any VR enthusiast. The core experience is the same with a few changes to keep it fresh. Looting, shooting, and exploring are a lot fun in this title. The visuals look great and represent the game just as you remembered it. The core game is there but the lack of co op and aim support would definitely improve it. There are tons of setting to adjust or turn off which adds to playability. I preferred the move controls as they made everything immersive. Once you get used to them you'll have no trouble destroying all types of enemies this game has to offer. Before release I thought that they would compromise the controls but that's not the case. Whether you use moves or the DS4 a great time will be had. Borderlands 2 is an incredible experience that should be in everybody's game library. Expand

    Questa è la migliore reincarnazione di Borderlands 2, una volta imparati i controlli con i ps move, non si può tornare indietro al pad. LaQuesta è la migliore reincarnazione di Borderlands 2, una volta imparati i controlli con i ps move, non si può tornare indietro al pad. La grafica non è niente male, una delle migliori su PSVR. Giocabilità che crea assuefazione. Non si può non amare, qualunque appassionato di VR lo adorerà. Ovviamente essendo un gioco frenetico non lo consiglierei a chi è molto soggetto a M.S. Must have per il PSVR. Expand

I had to turn off tunnel vision, use ds4, free movement, and snap turn for myself, so teleport is not your only option. The immersion is awesome, noticing things I never paid attention to when I first played the game several years ago. The art style fits extremely well with vr too. My only complaints would be no co-op option, or is far as I can tell, and lacking characters such as the mechromancer, but other than that I'm going to spend about 100 more hours traversing Pandora.

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 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.
