I ended up buying this game years after release because it just didn't seem interesting when I first saw it.
I was wrong and I'm sorry.
Pros 1. Long story with a lot of action. 2. Goofy, fun-to-love NPCs (and many characters from the first one, I'm told) help keep the story interesting. 3. Boat loads of awesome looking weapons. 4. Co-op (both online and offline) 5. <3 me some RPG elements 6. Colorful and unique graphics. They're not going for the realism or anything here. Very cartoony and it's refreshing. 7. $100 in DLC is awesome.
Cons 1. Some game glitches. I was getting game crashes when I drove a vehicle into a certain spot on the map (had to get out and hoof it, now I'm scared to go driving again). 2. The graphics take a little getting used to. The colors tend to blend together and it makes it occasionally hard to focus on things. The first few times playing it gave me a headache but I got used to it.
It's an awesome game and this is an awesome value (with the DLC). Worth owning.
I have no idea why it took me so long to buy this game, it surpassed the original in every way possible, did you enjoy the npc in borderlands well get ready to love this new npc from tiny tina to mister torgue
i like borderlands always made me laugh with the randomness and easter eggs, but i cant play it for long periods of time or i get burnt out, though ill never get burnt out of seeing and hearing insane bandits qoute shakespear
Got this for the teenagers. I even pre-ordered it. They absolutely love the game. Adult sons love this game to. Not much of a gamer myself, so can't get very technical on review. I do know it has a great sound track! LOL
Big fan of the first one. Loved playing the second with my friends and family at home over Xbox LIVE. Playing alone in Afghanistan.........it is really lonely LOL. Seriously though I am at level 53 Siren and most enemies don't stand a chance against me. I can't wait to get back to the states to play with other players so the enemies become tougher. That is my only REAL con about this game. Other than that if you want a fun game that you will literally play for almost a year and STILL not finish here you go folks. Well back to Pandora, happy hunting vault hunters.
BUY THIS GAME! If you have, and don't have the DLC (like me) buy this game! They are not BSing you when they say you'll save money, yes you will. The characters and DLC speak for themselves, and this game speaks for itself. If you haven't gotten into Borderlands, it's time to start.
