Ended up getting Bioshock Infinite, X-Com, and now Borderlands 2 all for the price of one game. Nice deal. Just goes to show it's worth keeping a close eye on Amazon's video game deals.
Not to mention I have never had a problem with Amazon's game downloads. I love how when you purchase a game from them it is always in your library and you can download it and install it to all the computers that you own.
Now, the actual review will commence. The graphics of the first game are upgraded into a newer, cleaner beauty but still retain the cartoon/drawing style artwork. This was one of the main reason I liked this game so much. Graphics mean quite a bit in this generation of games.
The actual game-play has been made easier also. Getting stuck on invisible barriers has not been a problem anymore like it was in the original "Borderlands". Shooting things and collecting items has been made easier to do. As far as game-play goes however, it was already spectacular in the original so improvement was nearly impossible.
The big improvement that I noticed, was the actual story itself. In the original game, there was only text besides introducing new characters which brought about a 10 second cut-scene. The story in this sequel is brought on by actual dialogue, explaining things much more clearly. This makes the game a lot easier to play for hours and hours without getting bored.
Navigating menus is also improved, by being more colorful and having more information displayed at once.
My only gripe is that loot is pushed more than it should be. The original had a lot of loot, so much that it was nearly impossible to have seen it all, and this sequel has much, much more than that. But the developers also have different names for the guns that are memorable, so my one gripe is actually fixed.
This product also comes with the Season Pass, which is also great, and adds hours and hours of more play-time. All-In-All, this bundle is definitely worth adding to your (Steam) library!
Borderlands 2 is a classic game and the season pass bux which usually cost as much as this bundle comes along just nicely.
The DLCs that come with the Season Pass are all very satisfactory, each offering upwards of 5 hours of unique story-driven gameplay (yes, story-driven in Borderlands 2, who knew?!) and then additional hours of side-quests, bonus items, and areas to explore.
Compared to the first game, Borderlands 2 is a vast improvement. Apart from a very occasionally finicky User Interface, the game is virtually free from bugs as well. The drop-in drop-out cooperative play is seamless and certainly adds to the experience, though unlike the original Borderlands, the sequel is actually playable as an individual; additional players simply add to the fun.
All in all, Borderlands 2 is a great game if you enjoy crass, uncouth, and generally explicit dialog and humor, over-the-top stylized gun-violence, eccentric and esoteric characters, and a true shootin' and lootin' experience. Be sure to convince your friends to buy it too, and you'll have even more fun!
That's exactly what we got out of this game. This game has more style to it for sure but in general it's the exact same. The weapons are more... Balanced, I guess I'd argue, where you tend to have a weapon that is great in one way and not so great in another instead of weapons that are great in every way.
Or maybe I'm just unlucky.
But yeah, it's been fun. We're about 20 hours into this one and enjoying our time.
My One complaint is setting up the actual game... Our internet sucks by the way, so we would rather play on LAN like we did with Borderlands 1. While the option is there to invite only LAN friends, you can't create a 'LAN game', and when I choose to only invite LAN friends my girlfriend doesn't come up. I'm sure that means my router is blocking something, but so instead we just join by the default settings and start playing.
No other player can enter and we don't experience even an ounce of lag, so I'm not Sure if we're playing over LAN or if we actually are on online servers. It is very unclear about it. They sort of dumb stuff down to make it easier but I'd rather just have my options and facts laid out for me so I know exactly what I'm doing.
