Borderlands 2 is the hungrily awaited sequel to the innovative game Borderlands, released in 2009. Developed by Gearbox Software for release on the Xbox 360, PS3, and PC, Borderlands 2 carries on the ingenious tradition of the prequel in combining the first-person shooter genre with the best elements of the role-playing genre, making for exhilarating, non-stop action, and progressive gameplay.
Borderlands 2 Come And Get Me
Set five years after the original Borderlands, a power-hungry villain by the name of Handsome Jack is taking credit for the heroism of the four previous vault hunters' actions, and in turn seizing control of the planet Pandora. The game introduces four new ferocious Vault Hunters to the fray who set out to stop the evil mastermind, and also the CEO of the Hyperion Corporation, from opening a vault and letting loose an ancient evil: an alien known as "the Warrior". In order to achieve and succeed in this deadly and dangerous mission, you will need the help of the original four...
Borderlands 2 makes full use of its signature gameplay style of role-playing shooter, with you playing as one of the four vault hunters. The classes of the characters range from Axton (Commando), Maya (Siren), Salvador (Gunzerker), and Zer0 (Assassin), each having their own unique special skill set and weapon proficiencies, such as Salvador possessing the ability to dual-wield guns and go on a berserk rampage. The weapon options are bursting at the seams due to the help of the new gun system that expands on customisation, along with the variety of style of guns, meaning millions, if not endless possibilities. Alongside the almost limitless multitude of guns, there are grenades, procedurally generated shields, Alien Artifacts, and class mods to get your hands on, to name but a few. Prepare to shoot and loot your way through Pandora as one of these colourful characters.
Quests will be assigned via non-player characters or from bounty boards, and the rewards can vary from experience points, to money, and everything inbetween. Killing enemies and completing in-game challenges will also reward you with experience points, which can then be used to grow in level, and also allocate skill points into the three branch skill trees. These trees allow you to progress through and enhance your character's special skill sets, giving you the ability to completely tailor your character to your preferred style of decimation, amongst other things. Other gameplay features range from and include the beloved Borderlands multiplayer options, where you can team up with up to three other players online, or team up with a friend and play on split-screen as a duo, because mayhem and madness is always more fun when shared.
Borderlands 2 has been careful to only expand and improve upon the unique features and systems that were introduced in the original game Borderlands, staying true to the almost overly enjoyable manic chaos that is the game's signature play style. This is Borderlands 2, now go get hunting, shooting, and looting! (Cat Emerson)

What a great game!
Borderlands 2 is a mission-packed FPS game filled with a bazillion different guns. The skill-trees are varied enough to make the different vault hunters stand out from each other, although only having a single unique class defining ability seems a bit lacking. Pandora is a vast, varied and very well-made universe. If you're into action-packed FPS games with a twist of redneck-like humour and enjoy playing with your friends, this is a good title to pick up.
Strange, funny and addictive, GOTY every year.
I never played the first game but Borderlands 2 looked interesting enough for me to buy it and try it out anyway, and I'm glad i did! This game is amazing, it's one of the best games I've played, the characters are great, the humor is awesome! Great story line, hours and hours of game play, all round amazing FPS. I'd recommend it to anyone.
What a terrific game this is - I thought the original Borderlands was good but Borderlands 2 improves on the original in so many ways. The guns are bigger and badder, the enemies more varied and the missions more exciting. Also, you can fast travel between discovered areas which removes the tedious traveling from the first game. If you liked the original you will love the sequel!
Good game, Good product, Good price, Good shipping and fast delivery, zavvi is the best!!
Nice Game. Very good Graphics and a lot of fun in the Koop-Gameplay. I play it with my friends and we think its the best game on the market at the moment. Better Story than Borderlands 1.
Borderlands 2 is a worthy successor of Borderlands. The storyline, the music and the characters are epic. The comic-style graphics are fine and the many side missions are also very interesting.
Borderlands 2 is amazing, and one of the best games this year. It is full of unlimited fun and a cool story. The characters are funnier and it feels bigger. With the multiplayer option it is even better. I say buy it, you will not be disappointed.
Many people believe Borderlands 2 to be a mere extension of the first game. In many ways it is, but in many more ways, they are wrong. Borderlands 2 destroys its predecessor by making the first game look as simple as it really was. The weapons are incredibly interesting. There is such a diversity that sometimes, you just don't know what to do with all the crazy, awesome stuff! The atmosphere has changed a lot. The environments are beautiful, the music is always fantastic and fits the areas just right. The world is extremely colourful! The game looks utterly fantastic in 1080p, and the environments really can look breathtaking! Enemy AI is much smarter. They dodge, jump, flee, and attack at all the right times. The enemies are more diverse. There are several new RPG elements that were added carefully and with great skill and success. Overall, this is a must buy for Borderlands 1 fans out there, and for anyone who just wants to have some fun. 9/10.
Borderlands 2 is great for those that like games of good quality with great gameplay. It contains lots of humour, however, it sometimes relies too much on Memes of the internet. Still, if you liked the first game, the second is even better.
Borderlands 2 is full of black humour, an awesome experience!
I have played Borderlands and really like the game played in co-op. It is a good experience when played with someone you know when you can have a good laugh and still good game play. Borderlands has really good random item looting/shopping which makes things more interesting, bunch of quests and pretty big maps. I've seen a trailer for Borderlands 2 and it looks really really good. They have made few vehicles which is a big plus, better skill trees, of course a big plus, a new class and many more weapons. I really hope they will have enough new elements to clear the repetitiveness from the first one, because there isn't some big number in different enemies and skill aren't really changing how the battle goes, it's just like a boost for you weapon. I really hope they will make something to bring us some different fighting styles and more items we can equip, not just weapon, shield and few mods. Also I've seen the maps are little bit different so hopefully we won't be looking at the same desert for hours. The sequel has a big potential, so far what I've seen from they have worked out few problems from the first game and hopefully this one won't have the repetitiveness problems, otherwise a great game, definitely something for RPG fans who like post apocalyptic environment and enjoy some co-op.
