An excellent sequel

I was honestly doubtful that this game would be a successful sequel to the first Borderlands, however not only does this game build on the story of the previous, I feel that it outshines the first Borderlands in several important ways. First the new classes seem more balanced and intuitive, second the combat system is much more streamlined and has a better flow, third there was much more character involvement (which quite honestly was a promise I felt was unfulfilled by the first game). Also, unlike the first game, when you've played through the game, there is additional content readily available, in addition to the "True Vault Hunter" mode, which allows you to play through the game again with advanced enemies, and better loot. This is a game I feel that I will keep coming back to.

If you liked the 1st one...

If you liked the first one then this game is for you, if not then it isn't, enough said. They kept the same formula and the story is about the same. Humor is a little better and the skill sets are better balanced but at the end of the day this game doesn't take a whole lot of leaps from the first one. That is not necessarily a bad thing but keep that in mind before trying this game out.

The best game for anyone who doesn't really like specifically guns, Zero has a large as life Katana, literally, and Maya has the ability to do a whole lot of elemental damage. This game is one of the few kinds of games that deserves a good rating after all the hard work into. All I have to say is that I enjoyed playing this game. Even a friend who doesn't acutally interested in shooters, got interested in it for quite some time. One con of this game this is that it's so fun, it's slightly addicting. The Borderland series is one where to complete it, you need quite some time handy.
