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!
