The 1st Borderlands was a fun albeit flawed experience-a lackluster plot even more marred by the atrocious ending, and the lack of polish in the vehicle department-and Gearbox took crticisms of these things to heart; creating a perfect game. Well no game is perfect but Borderlands 2 is pretty darn close. The story is engrossing, the vehicle combat tight and polished, the writing hilarious, the level progression rewarding, and LOOT, LOOT, LOOT! Gearbox wasn't kidding when they said there were a gazillion guns, with all feeling unique in their own respective ways. The new classes are basically upgraded versions of the previous ones. The voice acting is top notch, and the graphics are great. The main quest is ten times better with a story that will keep your attention. When the main quest is complete there are a number of side quests to complete alone or with a friend(s). Gearbox does a great job of putting a twist on the side quest formula, while they are usually the norm-kill these enemies or collection quests-the hilarious writing and scenarios will keep you playing. From assembling a tea party to solving a murder you'll find yourself laughing all the way. The enemy variety is also imroved, with a plethora of bandit types, creatures, and machines to slaughter. Kudos to Gearbox for crafting there best game to date and a sequal to an already great formula. The groundwork has been layed and if the original is any hint there will be many add-ons to extend your wonderful stay in Pandora.

This game is off the hook i can Not put it Down. The art work in the game and animation are even more improved over the last game wich was awesome. The enimeys and a.i are much more improved alot more dogging and attacking. The story is great funny villan you just wanna kill you hate to love him. The core of the game has not changed explore the vast waste land looting and murdering your way through bandits and bosses. The weapon customazations amazing soooooooo MAN FREAKING GUNS! if you like shooters like halo or if you liked the first boarder lands YOu will Love This Game its a MUST HAVE
Dood, what more can I say.. it's Borderlands 2?
If you have yet to play this game, then what are you waiting for? Buy it, rent it I don't care but play it.
Game is so dialed, the battles alone are chaotic to say the least especially with 4-player co-op.
Graphics are just as good if not better than the first. This game would get 10+ but only can rate to a 10 on here. Pick it up, and just be warned you will have a ton of long nites playing this bad boy.
