Summary

Borderlands 2 is a hybrid First-Person Shooter, RPG game focused on over-the-top co-op play, and set in the open-world game environment of the planet Pandora. The second game in the game series, Borderlands 2 raises the 'loot and shoot' action of the original game with an even larger and more detailed world to explore, an updated gun system, a new cast of characters and character classes, and integration of storyline with action.

Very repetitive and boring in my opinion.

Borderlands 2 has high replay value. There's a wide area to explore and thousands of different loadout. The issue I have is that, after a while, it kinda gets repetitive. It's a definite must-have for quick fun... not much more.

Lots of guns. Interesting story. Hours of fun. Nonstop shooting action.


Only downside is some repetitive mission elements of some missions. Still a great game

Borderlands 2 is worth playing if you've played the original title or not. In almost every sense it's a superior title to the original - even if I find myself wishing it had done more. Ultimately, it has left me hungry for more - which is probably a testament to how potent a formula this is.

Borderlands 2 doesn't reach far beyond its predecessor's scope, but it does do almost everything better. Additions, refinements, and fixes all combine to create an appreciably improved experience, one that fully delivers on the promise of the first game. While Borderlands felt empty at times, this sequel is bursting with content and brimming with life, making it an absolutely delightful way to spend hours and hours and hours of your free time.

The problem with Borderlands 2 is that it’s just more Borderlands. Normally I don’t criticize something because it didn’t go out of its safe zone, but having played close to 100 hours of the first game and with very few changes outside some AI behaviours and environments, it makes the sequel feel less special than it should be. That said, I do love Borderlands, and if you’re looking for more of the same, you’ve come to the right place.
