4.0 out of 5 stars Great Vita Game! Stop comparing to PS3 version. May 13, 2014
By t34p075
If you read a lot of reviews online, they focus on the negatives of this game, for which there are a few. But those negatives come as a direct comparison with Xbox 360 and PS3 versions of this game-both considerably more powerful hardware than the PS Vita. Not making a comparison, then, this version is a great game and a must-have for any Vita owner. The DLC it comes with, the high replay ability, the online multiplayer; all are superb and make Borderlands 2 one of the most robust titles on Sony's Handheld.

Now to the issues. There are some framerate issues. They're not game breaking, but do become noticeable when the action heats up. If you're familiar with the console version of the game, the resolution is lower, as are the texture qualities. Oh-and the multiplayer is only for 2 instead of 4 like on the PS3/Xbox/PC version. If you have never played the console version, you would not notice these things but I've got a lot of time in the console version. That said, the draw distance is still quite good, models still look great-this is a good-looking Vita game in it's own right.

And don't forget the BIGGEST plus: it's PORTABLE. I have quite the commute every day and end up with a lot of down time away from home, so the fact that the game is portable is a HUGE bonus that outweighs any comparative defects in the transition from console to handheld.

Bottom Line: If you want your Borderlands fix on the go, then this game is totally worth the purchase. It's a faithful port of the game with a few minor compromises that don't hold it back. If you're just going to sit on the couch and play it anyway, then you're better off with the PS3 version, because you're getting better performance there.

Hi all, I want to start off by saying that iron Galaxy deserves a lot more praise than most of the gamer sites are giving them. I worked in the games industry for 8 years as a sound designer for EA and worked on many games, so i know that being given this large of a game and making it fit into a handheld was an almost impossible task and i truly feel they pulled it off superbly. Are there some small issues, yes. What game doesn't have issues? The fact for me is, these small issues don't detract from the fun i'm having with this game. I'm having a blast playing borderlands 2 again, just as much as i did on the 360. I'm super excited to have this in portable form to play anywhere.

Lets get to some of the issues i've heard and read about. The back touch screen. i've heard people complain about it being unresponsive, i personally have not had that issue at all. The back touch screen has felt very responsive and i actually like their choice of run and melee as default in those slots. It's felt pretty natural actually. Also, as i've used my Vita grip casing it's allowed my hands to have more space as not to accidentally hit the back touch screen. there are some points the system bogs down a bit, and frames rates drop, but again this is a huge game on a handheld and most importantly for me it hasn't distracted me enough to take away from any of the fun and intensity.

Yes, there are some long load times, when going between maps, but still manageable, this game is good enough to wait for it to load up the fun in my opinion so they don't get on my nerves at all. Just be understanding of the limitations the system brings to the table and you should have tons of fun with this game!

4.0 out of 5 stars 4/5 May 13, 2014
By Johnnie
Verified Purchase
I have read a few reviews from different websites (IGN for instance) that are knocking this game in nearly every way possible...the thrashing it is taking is simply not true.

With my hands on time, I have watched the frame rate dip here and there, but the controls are solid, you can literally customize it how you see fit, the graphics look great, sound is solid the only real thing I can knock it on is that if you fast travel, load time can be lengthy (but not nearly as bad as Sly Cooper Thieves in Time, if you've played that).

A few other noteworthy things about the game that can understandably bother some people is that due to hardware limitations the coop has been reduced from 4 to 2 players and enemies bodies now disappear upon death as well.

On the plus side anew cross save feature has been added so you can play your same save on the PS3 and Vita if you want to.

Overall, this is a very solid port of a very large game and I am having a blast with it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't Believe The Negative Reviews May 15, 2014
By Chris
Verified Purchase
Borderlands 2 was the game that defied all odds and somehow was ported over to the Playstation Vita. Nobody really thought it would ever happen and once they found out it was going to happen, everyone became skeptical. Skeptics, you can now become believers because Borderlands 2 on the Playstation Vita is here, and it's bigger and better than we could have ever hoped for.
For those of you who haven't played Borderlands 2 before, the story is pretty simple. You play as a Vault Hunter who is heavily under attack by the game's antagonist, Handsome Jack. Jack puts it about as simple as you can get at the very beginning of the game where he states "Here's how things work, you, the Vault Hunter, finds the vault, and then gets killed, by me". The vault is basically a fancy way of saying "Giant Treasure Chest". The story isn't really anything phenomenal, but the way it is told makes up for it big time. You will meet tons of insane characters along the way, most of which are a joy to do missions for thanks to incredible voice acting and absolutely hilarious writing.
The gameplay is simple, but deep. Over the course of the main story you will go from having two guns at a time, to four. You will also be able to get shields, grenade mods, class mods, and other added bonuses along the way. So the way you play the game is completely up to you. There is a level cap at 50, which will take a while to get to (Usually around 50+ hours for the standard gamer) and with the 6 add ons included with the Vita, that cap is pushed to 61. Ever time you level up you get to add to your skill tree which depending on the character you play as, can drastically change how powerful you are.

I think it might be too much game for the little vita to handle. I loved the game on console and it's fun here but very buggy, especially later on in the game.
