If I had to pick one word to describe this game: Repetitive. Constantly mucking about with my inventory and scavenged items makes me feel as if Im organizing my pantry or something. If I wanted to organize a pantry until my fingers bled I would have just spent the $300 on miscellaneous cans of soup and such instead of a gaming system.
The action is all really one-dimensional, repetitive, and blah. I could seriously be working in a foreign sweat shop and be just as entertained, except the huge advantage would be that I'd be making $2 a week, and it would probably be less monotonous.
As for the positives, the characters are awesome, and there is a lot of humour in the game. The graphic style is unique and awesome. The artwork overall is just cool. Cool looking guns, cool environment, cool characters. For these aforementioned reasons I give it 4 stars instead of 1.
If you liked the first one you'll love this one. great new characters and abilities. They did a good job of bringing back the old characters as npc's . The story line was much more cool that borderlands, it kept me hooked 1. And there as soooo many guns! Great game all around.
Borderlands 2 is awesome awesome guns, and characters. borderlands 2 ties in with the original borderlands which is cool. The only reason it is not a 10 is because I don't like having to do side missions to be able to have a high enough rating to do the main story line
