Exactly What I Wanted
on September 25, 2012
I was a big fan of Borderlands, so I pre-ordered the sequel, and I was not disappointed.
Its Borderlands again, but everything is better.
The skill trees, the guns, the environments and the enemies have all been vastly improved in quantity and quality. But this was sort of expected.
What really stood out as a pleasant surprise was the care given to the story. The game is packed full of genuinely funny and witty dialogue. The main plot isn't exactly unique, but its interesting and really moves the story along. I never felt bored or unmotivated. Also all of the playable characters are given a back-story that can be uncovered with a little exploring.
Speaking of, this is one of those rare games that truly seems to reward diligent exploring. I found a large chest by falling off a bridge and landing on a nearly invisible out crop, who does that anymore? It was awesome.
Finally, and most importantly, I played this game with some friends. It was created for multiplayer. It may be fun solo, but I think it won't compare to the full party experience.
This game truly feels that the developers poured their hearts and souls into it, and I think if you have any interest at all, you should give it a go.
