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)

Borderlands 2 is the best shoot and loot game of all time.
A cracking game. Plenty of fun to be had creating various sorts of mayhem!
Borderlands 2 is a good game. It's not excellent, but not bad either. It's just here, with its greatness and the rest. Borderlands 2 has a really great universe, which is interesting and funny at the same time. But this game suffers from the limitation of our era. Four players in co-operation maximum, with matchmaking and it could be much better. It could be way more fun. But still, Borderlands 2 is a good game, no more, no less.
The humor in Borderlands 2 is great. This game is amazing and I recommend it to anyone who liked the first one!
Borderlands 2 is awesome! It's an RPG shooter with great graphics and funny game play. 5 stars.
I've played a number of FPS games and Borderlands 2 is just amazing. It's a game you don't want to play on your own but with groups of people because you'll die a lot if you play on your own (i tried it). It's a game I would recommend to anyone who's either an FPS fan or likes playing with friends.
Borderlands 2 is my first borderlands game, I have never played Borderlands 1. This game have a great universe and background. Graphically speaking, it's beautiful, the cel shading is well done. The humor is ever-present and the characters have interesting backgrounds. The borderlands-regulars will find many characters that were on the 1st episode. The map is gigantic, there are many side quests related to the background. The possibility of doing the campaign with friends is cool, it's always a pleasure. A game with a good gameplay and a splendid design.
Borderlands 2 is just as crazy and fun as the fiirst, but is in all respects better prepared with more diverse locations and offers interesting challenges. Game mechanics are more sophisticated, everything works like a well oiled machine, and if you like to mix FPS and RPG then Borderlands 2 is for you. You will have so much fun, especially in co-op.
Borderlands 2 is a very good game and is easy to play.
I ordered this 3 weeks ago and since then I have played it for hours and hours. This Game is so addictive!
Borderlands 2 is just awesome!
Took the best parts of the first game, and expanded on it. It feels a bit slow at the start, but soon picks up the pace again. Not a fan of the gold key/premium item nonsense, but otherwise really enjoyed this game.
Bought this for my son, he loves it. Game wise, if you like shoot em ups you'll love this.
Borderlands 2 is a great game.
Received quickly at best price around!!!
I bought Borderlands 2 as a present. He will be one happy boy when he gets this.
Excellent graphics. Good game i haven't stopped playing it since i got it.
Very nice game, has a nice group of characters, each has his own skills and special powers, lot of fun missions and parts. The co-op mode is sweet! But the developer could make a little longer campaign for a game without a multiplayer.
I love borderlands! The choice of classes are brilliant, and I feel I can have a lot of choice in my fighting style. Great characters, great voice acting, some witty one liners and the story is well written (so far). I would totally recommend it.
Borderlands 2 has more tactical gameplay and more deep black humour and of course fantastic, great gameplay. It's one of the best games of 2012 and of course it offers many hours of fun and fantastic teamplay in co-op mode, on or offline!
Anyone who has played the original Borderlands will love this; more of the same, bigger and better. If you're trying Borderlands for the first time, expect a balanced FPS mixed with expansive RPG elements, great character classes and varied environments, all in a great adventure that's oozing with a fantastic sense of humor. Buy it.
Borderlands 2 is an excellent game. I'd recommend this to anyone who enjoys FPS games.
Bought Borderlands 2 as a treat for my teenage son who was hoping to get it as a Christmas present this year. He was over the moon and hasn't stopped playing it since it arrived.
This is such an improvement on the first game - if you liked Borderlands, you will love Borderlands 2! I found the difficulty curve a little off in places (too easy) but overall this wasn't a problem. Gameplay, humour and story are all fantastic. The best game I've played this year!
Borderlands 2 is by far the best triple A title released this year. Though most people say that it is just an expansion to the first installation(which is true), but who said that is a bad thing? It adds a bigger world to explore, better graphics and improved story line, what more could you ask for! And an even better thing is a new system that has been added called the "Badass Rank"; it allows you to increase your stat's every time you complete a challenge, which is carried on to any character you make.
Absolutely awesome, it actually beat my expectations. Also zavvi.com is very professional, very fast delivery, awesome service, this is why i keep coming back. Also the prices too...99% of the time they are unbeatable. I would highly recommend purchasing form zavvi.com and also Borderlands 2 is a definite must have game of 2012.
If you played the original Borderlands then you will know exactly what Borderlands 2 is about - guns, loot and shenanigans. This is a straight up evolved continuation of the first one that's even better. It's been tweaked in the right way, so it doesn't feel like they have tried too hard. There is still abundant amounts of loot, the jokes are hysterical - and the way the new character classes play is really enjoyable. The new settings and graphics are so pretty, so very pretty. The soundbytes from the enemies will crack you up, and slaughtering midgets may become your new unhealthy obsession... electronically speaking. The game is as forgiving as the first one, you die - no big deal, you lose some money and then charge back in again and resume. Playing it online with friends is the way to do it, and with the loot system amended so that you can share loot across your own various characters, you can save up cool stuff and use it across various playthroughs. If you liked the first one, then odds are you already have this game. If you don't then get it. Seriously.
Like it's prequel the perfect match of action FPS with RPG elements. The co-op integration and playtime makes this a must buy for anybody who likes FPS. It's a fine shooter for single player but it really shines in co-op gameplay (you can even play split screen). Highly recommended.
Unbelievable, and 10 times better than the original. It makes a change from the usual games and I guarantee you will laugh as there's plenty of comedy. Everything just works in the game and the amount of fun you can have, even after finishing the game, is great. There are hundreds of Easter Eggs, including Lord of the Rings and Minecraft. Surely game or the year!
I ordered the wrong PC format of this product the first time round and zavvi were very happy to allow me to return it, even though the celophane had been removed. I was very happy with the hard packaging it came in. This being said, however, the delivery time of both the original incorrect format and the correct format (once ordered again) were not within the ETAs provided by zavvi. Good supplier but I think this is my 3rd order through zavvi and all 3 products have arrived late. Don't expect to get your goods on time but do expect them to come in good condition.
This game is great! It has lasting appeal, and it's great to play with friends or by yourself. The amount of guns and re-playability is ridiculous, the game always has a better and new gun. Buy it, it's a bargain!
Fantastic game to play in co-op. Works so well if you have a group of friends with the game like myself.
Borderlands 2 is an amazing game, and still an awesome game after so many hours of playing.
It's a great game and the service was great as it arrived at my house by 2pm the same day it was released.
Excellent!! Came the day it was released and its a very good game... game of the year i think.
Has to be one of the games of the year to date. Frantic shooting action and plenty hours of game play.Replay value in this game is second to none. What will you be. Gunzerker, Assasin, Siren or Commando.
Borderlands 2 is a fantastic RPG FPS game with an enormous selection of guns to find. The large amount of quests to do means this game provides hours of fun on Pandora.
Best Game in the World - Bar None!!! Great service and delivery from Zavvi
If your looking for a game with humor, action, rpg and fps elements then look no further. This game is not only all of the above but it is long as well, you are definitely getting your moneys worth here. If you never played borderlands one then i suggest you buy that as well and play it first, not for the story so much but just to see how they took one great game and made it even better. A rare feat indeed. As for Zaavi, i pre-ordered the game and it arrived on the day of release with no problems.
The game is crazy good! Fantastic, unreal, must have!
Look - Shoot - Loot Crazy game play. Wonderful leveling. Amazing characters. More enemies than you can imagine, but less than you can kill.
