Borderlands was a great game and Borderlands 2 takes all that was great about that and improves upon it. The controls are great and similar to other shooters. The story is one of the best I have played in a long time. I seemed to play hours on end doing side quests, ranking up, gathering and testing out new guns and much, much more. This game is a must play title for anyone that loves the intense firefights this game brings, but with the intense firefights comes funny moments throughout the game. You meet many characters that are funny but still bring you into the entire story. The many, many guns is also a really nice feature that you can get occupied searching for better weapons to use for you class. An amazing game that I would suggest you rent.

I should note I wasn't huge on the first one. Story is extremely important to me in a shooter and I wasn't a fan of how it was told. But, my friends told me I should try B2 because I'd like it more.
Honestly, It's just more of the same. The only different for me was the balance wasn't as good compared to the first one. It felt like playing solo wasn't given a fair advantage like playing full co-op. I understand that's the point, but if I want to play solo I should be given a shot.
I've always LOVED the cartoon-like graphics. I remember when the first game was being made how they were going to do normal graphics. To me, the game would of just been like any other game if that had happened.
Anyway, maybe it is an unfair rating since I'm a little biased. But not my thing. Glad to see so many people enjoy it though, 2K and Gearbox (brothers in arms) are 2 of my favorite Dev teams.
