This game is incredible. I don't even really know where to begin, but basically if you played the first one, the gameplay is almost exactly the same.. Except bigger and better in every way.
The enemies are smarter (and more varied). I've seen enemies backpedal and find new cover when you get close to them. They also will pick up health packs on the ground, and some will even (temporarily) steal money from you.
The loot is better, and the environments are drastically different (and there are a TON of them). The humor and references in this game are amazing. The campaign is longer and there are TONS of side quests. The writer(s) did a MUCH better job on this story than the first one. It also links back to the first game and gives you background info in a lot of different ways that I'll let you figure out in game!
The game seems harder than the first one, so I'd definitely recommend playing with friends.
Borderlands 2 hasn't even been out for a week and I've put close to 80 hours into it and finally completed the story mode.. Although I have split my time between three main characters.
The one complaint that I have is that there seems to be a lot of "grinding" - killing a ton of enemies just for the sake of making something take longer. Enemies respawn fairly quickly, so I've found myself killing the same group of enemies multiple times in the same area.
Overall it's a fun and hilarious experience. Trust me and try Borderlands 2, you won't be disappointed.
