If you are a returning fan... You don't really need any explanation of to what this game is. Newcomers, this is a game that has more guns in ANY other game out there. It is a RPG shooter, but instead of having a bunch of magical... elf... staffs... An all that lameness. You get Guns and lots of guns -- Guns that shoot bullets that, bounce off things, explode into more bullets(That even can set things on fire). This is by far one of the best shooter's out there. Utilized for 4player co-op or you can run it alone... If you haven't gotten to the vehicles -- You haven't seen a fraction of this games potential.
You have the ability to play as four characters.
Axton - Commando, Weapon expert; Can deploy auto-turret
Zero - The assassin, who utilizes in sniper rifles.
Maya- The Siren, able to do special attacks
Salvador - Gunzerker, utilizing in heavy weapons
Each character has their own perk, but are not limited to any weapon.
The Vault, a vast wealth of imaginable riches, is hidden on the planet of Pandora... A maniac of the name Handsome Jack is attempting to tear the planet apart in search for it. The Vault hunters are out to stop him and take the vault for themselves.
2k Games has surely wrote a masterpeice... Hilarious voice-acting... Non-repetive play and really aimed to give what their fan base wanted -- Without over doing it.
Gearbox -- Did a magnificent visualization of the title. Brilliant vehicle mechanics; creative rich detail in the alien planet of pandora; Fear-some bosses; Fun gun mechanics... And a gameplay that you and three of your buddies can get down on and have fun.
There is now more than one vehicle type. Maps are larger. There is still loading screens, but it isn't problematic... The title was well refined for the fans.
Check out this game, it is a instant classic, and endless fun.

This game is AWESOME.
Ever play the first one? YOU SHOULD. That game was awesome too.
This takes everything from the first one and makes it feel like a legit sequel with all the proper upgrades, tweaks, fixes, bells and whistles.
It's incredibly fun. COOP is a must, and the best around.
The new characters stand all on their own, just as the original four did. They feel different and unique and not in the shadows of the original.
CL4P TR4P, Marcus, Moxxi, Scooter and all the other recurring characters are as awesome and welcome as ever.
This story is good, and well implemented into the crazy world of sandbox side-questing.
Honestly, this game, this series is quite possibly the best of this generation, especially in terms of multiplayer, coop and shooters. And lets' face it, at this point it's probably the best RPG around (I'm looking at you Japan!)
It does everything necessary to compete with the likes of Fallout, or any other games compared to it because of genre or play style. RAGE? Pssshhh...

I played the 1st borderlands and loved the concept of it. A first person shooter mixed with RPG elements. The original had me hooked from start to finish. So when I heard that gearbox made a sequel I thought that it would be impossible to top the first, boy was I wrong! Gearbox improved on borderlands 1 in every way. The skills of each character are all unique and different from each other. There are more guns, new characters, smarter AI, beautiful environments, more in depth story etc. I got the game a few days early and I must say I haven't been able to put the game down. Borderlands 2 is a must have for those who really enjoy shooters. Don't take my word for it, pick this up and see for yourself. If you enjoyed the first you will fall in love with this one. I definitely highly recommend this game. 9-10
