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 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.
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.
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 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.
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.
