This review is from: Borderlands 2: Game of the Year Edition (Video Game)
I love Borderlands 2 and if you like first-person shooters or even just RPG's I think you like it also. Now this doesn't come with the ultimate Vault Hunter upgrade pack number 2 which lets you take your character from level 61 to 72. But those extra 11 levels aren't that big of a deal especially if you're just starting out new.
What I would recommend doing is play the Torgue campaign of carnage DLC (it's not DLC now because is included but it was at one point so I'll call it that) when your character reaches about level 18 to 20 because then you can get legendary weapons from the Torgue vending machines and they will be great to help you finish the game. In particular look for the Double Penetrating Unkempt Harold". The legendary weapons cost 663 Torgue tokens which you can collect at Pyro Pete's bar brawl (You can get them every where in the Torgue DLC but PP Bar Brawl is a great farm). PLUS the Bar Brawl 1, 2 & 3 are great for leveling up your characters as you can just keep fighting them over and over.
If you're new to the game or even first-person shooters in general then Gaige the Mechromancer has the skill tree design for new players in mind. And it's a good one to start her robot helps you in battle immensely. I personally like Axton is my strongest character I feel is double slag turrets are really strong and helpful. But all the characters are really strong (except for Zero in my opinion he's my least favorite character but I'm not into melee or sniping which are his strengths). Ultimately it's generally considered that the strongest character is Salvador so he might be a good place to start.
Another great thing about Borderlands 2 is that it has button remapping on the consoles. So instead of being stuck with just a few presets you can go in and change any button around to your desire so if you want jump to be a different button that one of the presets feel free to go in and change it. Gearbox really has raised the bar in allowing button remapping in console games it's great for disabled gamers like myself.
Also you can get a lot of free golden key codes if you search golden keys in Google there is a wiki page with hundreds available so definitely redeem those as soon as you fire up the game. The golden loot chest and sanctuary only gives out blues and purple guns but they're decent and always at the level of your character. All here's how the gun colors work now that I mentioned blue and purple.
Pearlecent - off white color in name of gun
Orange (considered legendary)Legendary weapons do unique and amazing things and are what everybody in the game goes for.
So there you go the color denotes its rarity in game so be on the lookout for the guns near the top in the legendary stiffly can be very interesting and powerful. Be sure to checkout the Torgue vending machines as you can buy legendary's right from there.
Anyway that is the basic rundown on some of things you need to keep in mind when starting up Borderlands 2 deftly recommended super good game well worth the $60 that the game of the year edition is going for the time of writing this review.
Thanks for reading!
