wow if the first game was anything close to this i have really been slacking on my gaming. i consider myself a "picky" gamer and have a hard time finding games that hold my attention and are worth keeping for more than a week and i think it'll be a while before gamefly gets this gem back.
first the only reason this game didnt get a 10 was the loot, for the first 2 seconds or so after opening the crate, safe, lunchbox,etc.. the textures of the items inside are blocky and undefined then the textures kick back in. not a major issue but i feel its worthy of deducting half a point, so the game is a solid 9.5
now there are a bazillion guns like the description entails but many of them are slight variations of each gun in the class. again no biggie because i still enjoy dropping a gun from my inventory to pick one up thats almost identical but looks a little cooler and may have a slower reload time.
love the cell-shading, its a big breath of fresh air over all these fps titles that go for ultra realism. the audio is great as well, i enjoy the music and the comical voices of the characters, but the only thing that bugs me (and i dont know if the other characters are the same) is that the gunzerker class has the most annoying "grunt" sounds when jumping.
all things considered, if you have the cash to blow buy this MOFO, if not then rent it and you wont be dissaointed!!!!

Awesome game. If you've played the first Borderlands, this is just the second course of a really great meal. I've started by playing as Zer0, the stealthy character, and I've been really impressed with the graphics, the inventory management system (which has added a way to mark inventory you want to save and ones you want to trash), the combat which is challenging and fun, and the story which is, so far, awesome and hilarious. The dialogue from Claptrap and the random dialogue from raiders is a highlight of the experience, IMO.
I'm looking forward to putting in many more hours playing this character and the many, many more after when I play through as the other ones.
