Limited Edition Ultimate Loot Chest Edition,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Borderlands 2 Ultimate Loot Chest Limited Edition - Playstation 3 (Video Game)
I was lucky enough to pick up the Limited Edition Ultimate Loot Chest edition, and I must say it is amazing. Everything is very solid and high quality.
Borderlands 2 far exceeds my expectations and it's predecessor.
The control, and the whole game feels faster and smoother. The little issues from the first one have for the most part been corrected and I can honestly say Borderlands 2 is a masterpiece of a game, and it is huge! It has a feeling of a much better financed game as they did add a lot of bells and whistles.
+ Over-all control and combat is much better, your character feels more natural and less like a stiff FPS video game.
+ The voice-acting, movies, story and environments are immaculate! Everything is very well done and polished to protection.
+ Weapons are well designed and this time you can really tell a difference of what you are shooting with.
+ There is a mini-map
+ When down, you can move in any direction.
There are a few small things I'm not crazy about, like when you look at a weapon or ammo, the list of it's spec's are just out of view, making it a little frustrating to actually see what you are picking up. You need to keep scrolling up, making it a little cumbersome at times.
Over-all it is an amazing game and if you liked the first one, you'll love this one. The story is very grand and the environments are well designed. It fixed and improved upon everything the first one had to offer. The environments are very colorful and change often.
Multiplayer is very well done and intertwined into the game much better than the first one was. Split-screen is great and you have the option of changing to horizontal or vertical screen stacking. The trophies are mostly hidden and there are just a few that are "online" trophies.
Just like any game it may take a while to get accustomed too and could almost be too much to take at first play, however you will get addicted and it will be very hard to put the controller down.
