5.0 out of 5 stars Great fun, especially with friends in four player co-op mode., November 2, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Borderlands 2 - Playstation 3 (Video Game)
Great fun, especially with four players that are friends, where you complete all the missions together. Like the first Borderlands, the maps are huge, the humor is "unique" and the boss battles are a blast. Because of the size of the game, there are lots of places and things to find and explore, with many side missions in addition to the primary missions. Also, it is really great that all the players share the "loot" and can trade and give weapons and money to each other. The different classes add another fun aspect to the game, and the points and power up choices make for interesting variations on the play. The sheer size and number of classes and choices make replay value pretty high. With this game, you certainly get your moneys worth. Hey, I'm 58 years old and playing it with my son who is 23 (he's on the other side of the state), and some of his his friends I've known for over a decade and I'm having an absolute blast (I'm surprised that they put up with my poor playing ability, but they love the game too).

Check it out, and play on!!!

At 58 years old, you still find video games fun? I'm 35 and feeling like I'm getting too old to play video games. Perhaps Borderlands 2 is worth checking out...

P. Lawrence says:
Hey Joel, yes I still play even at the ancient age of 58. I will say that I'm (much) better at the racing games than the shooters. I really love Forza 4 and am looking also forward to the release of Halo 4 (the group will also go through this one in co-op mode). Remember, I'm retired so I have more spare time than most folks (at 35 I was constantly exhausted from a career and my wife and I were still raising the kids so there was very little spare time to play, so believe me, I get the "too old" part). Even though I'm not great at some games (I'm a lot slower than the young ones, especially on the "shooters") remember, age is partially a state of mind. I'd like to believe that keeping up to date with some of these things keeps me from feeling as old a I am! The real key to me, and the greatest amount of fun I've had, has been gaming with my Son and his friends over the years. As they grew up, most went away to a Universitys, or off to a job, or joined the military. So, one of the greatest reasons that I like X-Box Live and gaming with them is that is that it's been a great way to keep in touch and find out how they're doing, because we all talk to one another while playing.

Borderlands 2 is a cartoon like game and has a sick sense of humor (not for little kids), but has been one of our favorite co-op games. You may find that playing an occasional game in a genre that you enjoy will help keep you feeling younger. This I believe is especially true if you can periodically play with a group of friends. Also, I have found that gaming (along with music) is a great way to de-compress. This old brain of mine doesn't multiplex or focus like when it was younger ... however, while gaming, when you're running an exotic car around a track at 170 m.p.h., or something is trying to kill you, one tends to get focused and forget about everything else. Note that some studies have also shown that gaming can aid in hand/eye coordination and problem solving Hey, at my age, I can use all the help that I can get! I hope this short missive may help put things in a different perspective for you and maybe if you get some time you can try Borderlands 2 or another type of game (if you don't have a gaming platform you can rent one with a game, and get a month free from X-Box live and try it out). At any rate, hope that all is well with you and yours.

P.S. On this cold, rainy Sunday, our son just called as I was typing this and he and the lads want me join them and continue our Borderlands 2 missions this afternoon ... for this old guy, it just doesn't get much better than that.
