I can't get anything a 10 since that's impossible however Borderlands 2 comes close. I'm not usually much of a FPS fan but this game is straight up fun. I started as Salvador but found myself not really digging the "beserker" ability. I recently switched to commando and i'm LOVING it, the turret is great! It's one of those rare games where you can't wait to get into the middle of heavy combat and the weapons, soooo many weapons! Seems like every 15 min i'm finding my new favorite gun! The only real flaw I see is sometimes backing into a corner and getting stuck or having so many enemies right on top of me I can't see what's happening and I can't progress forward to get away. Other than that though I really can't find many problems, even when you're getting your butt handed to you it's still fun!
To me, this game doesn't hold a candle to the first game, as sequels usually don't to games I love.
I played a gunzerker to level 34 in the second playthrough and the other three characters to at least level 20 in the first playthrough.
I have yet to see an orange weapon in the game. The quality of the loot just sucks compared the the first Borderlands.
Since they changed it where each character can use any type gun just as well as another, they took away tons of hours of replayability.
Also, the special skill of each class is just not as fun as they were in the first game.
The asassin's class skill just sucks and the sirens class skill was so much better in the first one.
Its a fun game, but just doesn't hold a candle to the first one.
