I tried it for a couple of days and kept wishing I was playing something else. It plays well and has some good shooting and mechanics. The whole thing feels like an empty shell though. They try to pretty it up with the graphics and humor, but there's no soul there.
The whole thing feels like it's aimed at 13 year-olds. There's even a Cortana-like AI who just stares at you like you're the best thing ever. She talks, but her mouth doesn't move with her dialogue. The rest of the characters sound like a bunch of Internet trolls repeating memes over and over. I couldn't imagine playing through another 20 hours of Handsome Jack's lame jokes.
At least with games like Fallout 3 & New Vegas you get interesting backstories, characters, and dialogue. This game has the feeling of the flimsiest and characters story slapped on afterwards.
If you like repetitive shoot & loot games some minor humor, I guess you'll enjoy this.
Never played to much of Borderlands 1 but I have gotten into number 2. I must say that in the beginning man this game will have you hooked! I had a lot of fun playing with friends and Gearbox has a way to bring you back to the game via shift codes and well placed DLCs.
Comic books a fantastic art book I mean what else can I say?
Ok Zero could have been so much better but they feel well short.
The is really only one story and I do not think it is that great to warrant me running through the same lands over and over again #boring
After level 50 what is really the point?
Even if they add a level cap after you eventually your just running around like a super soldier #boring
Opening up locker after locker after locker #boring
It is good to very good but could have been so much better
After you get a certain amount of weapons it is so what it is not like you can take it with you are even port to another game? When this game is done it is done!
This is an action RPG so this game is long but don't look at it critically cause if you do this game will be back in mail in no time. It adds a nice amount of challenge when playing with folks or even solo. And I guess it is all about the GUNS but you do not need legendary weapons to get the upper hand once your skill tree is maxed out you have the advantage especially as the Commando.

OK, this game is fun, but....a bit disappointing. I'm not tryin' to be a hater, but come on it isn't as good as the first(My Opinion). There are more guns and new characters. You meet some of the classic characters such as Lilith and Brick. Zero(Ninja Sniper) and Salvador(Gunzerker)are the coolest characters to me. Overall it's more of the original's formula,but......a bit worse. You should still buy it, but be cautious.
