About

Sequel to the 4-player cooperative FPS RPG Borderlands, where the new team of Vault Hunters arrives on the infamous planet Pandora in order to get the riches, hidden inside the Vault, and help to free the planet from the Handsome Jack, President of Hyperion. Clear out the endless waves and groups and marauders with various weapon types and character abilities.
Unlike the first game, Borderlands 2 provided DLC not only expanding the world of Pandora with stand-alone story campaigns but adding 2 more characters. Now the main cast consists of Gunzerker Salvador(dual-wields guns at command), Siren Maya (holds and paralyzes the enemy), Commando Axton (summons turrets) and Zer0 the Assasin (invisible sniper ninja). But with the DLC players can try out summoning giant flying robots with Gaige the Mechromancer and Krieg the Psycho.
Most of the game charm and popularity of Borderlands 2 comes from the supporting cast and the personalities of the NPC, making this fast-paced shooter with optional cover stand out.

Borderlands 2 reviews and comments

Craziest of all the Borderlands sequels. I know you haven't played this game from 2K, but that's why I'm writing this Borderlands 2 review to encourage you. You won't regret it if you continue reading!

Do you like Borderlands? This is Borderlands too.
Overall: 7/10
Gameplay: 8/10
Story: 4/10
Music: 8/10

Good game! Really fun mechanics with great replay value. Play it for that, though, not the story. They manage to leach just enough emotional impact out of the characters to make it worth finishing the story but not enough that it ever really hits home. Investing you more heavily in a few, more important NPCs that you develop a relationship with might have helped that. But then again, never what the game was trying to excel at. The outside lord (non-story) is decent, and sets a good atmosphere, but gets repetitive after a while. Similarly, the enemies you can fight, by the end, feel quite similar. If you’re playing right, there’s an optimal strategy for each PC, and once you have it down, you can just run through the game doing the same move set on most enemies. Even slagging becomes fairly irrelevant by late game, especially for big bosses. Their attempts to spice it up involve usually adding armor or resistance, or making a specific spot vulnerable. This adds more annoyance than strategy, however. Still, the actual “gun-feel,” if you will, is excellent, and it remains a great game especially in co-op. In fact, I’d say that’s where it shines, as playing with friends lends a whole new level of strategy to how you stack your skills and play styles together. Last thing, the gun generation system is great, BUT being able to progress with guns you like a lot (pay for an upgrade) would make it even better as there’s little to no incentive to do anything other than farm a few bosses until you get the best gun for your level and stick with it for a while until it simply is unusable. Overall, good game, great for it’s time, the story is lacking but still well worth a play through for the mechanics.

Played this with the homies. It was fun. I like Gaige. 
«Better with friends»
Worst game I've EVER played from this company. The special powers absolutely suck, what's considered a "trivial" mission will have you killed no less than 5 times on average, and you cannot buy rocket launcher ammunition in most places. Overall it is absolute crap!!

fun game, but with a preteen's sense of humour. i'm personally not a fan of level-based combat, but that's forgiveable
Replayed the 4k version of Borderlands 2. Borderlands 2 holds up well. The combat is still fluid and fun. The constant gun upgrades are very fun and I like the quests.

Final Score: A-
