Oh man, this game is awesome. Right when i started playing Claptrap started making jokes and had me laughing right away. I picked Xero or however you spell it and picked a skin they gave me for having a save from BL 1 and a diff head which was also from having a save from BL 1. Right away, you can tell that this game is an improvement over the first with the graphics which are even more cell shaded than before. I bought the game from GameStop only because it came with some freebies like access to a new Mechromancer class when it becomes available and some golden guns and other stuff but that doesn't really matter right now. I was thinking though that my character would have swords only for some reason but with this being Borderlands they make you have guns, which is fine by me. Everything is better from the aim to the enemies, EVERYTHING. If you even just liked the first one a little, this one will blow your mind. If you haven't played the first one, don't bother now because Borderlands 2 is the way to go. I wasn't as big of a fan of Borderlands 1 as a lot of people, probably because someone messed it up for me when they gave me some of those cheat drops in multiplayer pretty much right when i started the game which made it tooooo easy and took away from the grinding to level up. Not this time though, I got on the band wagon right away because i had a feeling this one was going to be great. FYI i hated Claptrap in the first Borderlands but he is really funny in this one. I would buy this one instead of renting it because this game will be hard to get with so many people wanting to play it. Wow this is the longest review i have written and i am mainly just blabbering. oh well, buy this game. NO REGRETS.

Borderlands 2 is a step up from the first game and that is a huge step. After a slow start the game really starts to pick up. The endless amount of weapons and awards makes this game very addictive. Not to mention the hilarious story. My only problem is that like the first game, it can get very boring unless you are playing online. You should only play this game with people you know to maximize team efficiency.
the game utilizes the huge map to its advantage so you will almost never get bored it also has a HUGE gun variety so the weapon choices are almost endess and the mixture of skills in the skill tree give you the oppertunity to not only burn but electricue,corrode,ect
it also has very beutiful graphics and AMAZING npc even the enimies interact wih eachother so yeah this is a must have game
