Perfect

Borderlands 2 might be best CO-OP game of all time

Borderlands 2 reintroduces Pandora and everything you loved about the first Borderlands is significantly better.

Gameplay is smoother, gun play is funner, story is (slightly) more interesting, and the random loot somehow got even better.

DO NOT be fooled by the art style or the graphics! Some people haven't given this game a try because of the art style and if you're one of those, you're missing out on one of the best co-op games of all time! I'm even comfortable enough to say that this is the best CO-OP shooter games of all time, and that is saying a lot.

I enjoyed the first game alot and this one is very similar.
Borderlands 1 was an easy game and that made it enjoyable for me. You could go guns blazing with reckless abandon. The second game is completely different in that aspect. You must be very careful and expect to die alot. I consider myself an above average gamer and I died quite alot as sniper. Some people enjoy the the slow and methodical game play, but Borderlands shouldn't be this hard. If they could drop the enemy damage by 15% it would get a 9, but for now 7.

I applaud 2K games for what they've done with Borderlands 2. Very rarely do you find a game that mashes together so many fun gameplay dynamics, colorful characters, inventive interactions, and visual elements while still maintaining a consistent feel and experience. Borderlands 2 blurs the line between good and bad; sometimes I found myself questioning whether I was REALLY the hero or whether I was a villain- but either way I still hated the antagonist and wanted to get out and stop him. The social aspect of the co-op game is what really makes the experience, but is also why I didn't vote this game a 10/10- because the single-player story alone is not enough to make this a great game. Still, excellent game, lots of replay value, worth trying and even buying if you like it after your first playthrough.
