Borderlands 2 furthers the distinct blending of First Person Shooter and Role Playing genres to create the true evolution of the Role Playing Shooter. Team up with up to three other players for four-player online goodness, sharing mayhem as you spend hours leveling up your character and equipping them with one of the millions of badass weapons. Borderlands 2 features a new visually stunning array of procedurally generated guns, shields, grenades, artifacts, enemies and more. Choose one of the four new character classes to be taken through a carefully crafted and connected story to all new and surprising environments across the living planet of Pandora. Make new friends, arm them to the teeth and fight alongside them on your relentless quest for revenge and redemption.
All-New Characters and Classes: Choose from all new characters and classes including the Gunzerker, who can dual-wield any two weapons in the game. Dual machine guns? Cool. Dual rocket launchers? Of course! Dual Sniper Rifles? Sure, if that's your thing! More tactical perhaps? There are multiple classes to choose from!
Play Online with Friends: Share your adventures with friends on both Mac and PC through a seamless system enabling you to drop in and drop out of a campaign without ever having to restart the game.
World Connected Story: Left for dead in the frozen tundra of Pandora, begin your quest of revenge and redemption as the story drives you closer to the Hyperion Corporation and its evil founder, Handsome Jack.
New Badass Gun System: Millions upon millions of possible weapons means tons of new and innovative ways to engage foes on Pandora. Fire, electricity, corrosive acid, and more will all be at your disposal.
87 Bazillion...Everything: It's not just guns on Pandora, you will lust after procedurally generated shields,grenades, alien artifacts, class mods and much, much more.
Brand new environments: From the arctic tundra, through the dangerous grasslands, past the mysterious corrosive caverns to beyond, discover more of the unpredictable world of Pandora at every turn!
Brand new enemies: Hulking, gorilla-like Bullymongs, vicious predatory Stalkers and the Hyperion mechanical army, run by Handsome Jack, are just some of the new enemies you will face.

Single player (4.5 stars) + Multiplayers and DLC (1 star) = 3 stars review
by apprev, France - Jan 18th 2013
For the single player experience, it's a near five stars game : The game, in itself, is really good, cartoonish graphics are great, gameplay is fun, and this game has an excellent replayability. The only drawback is that the Mac port (I also played it under Windows) is way more demanding than the Windows version.
For the remaining, it's a 1 star game, except if ALL your friends are gaming on a Mac :
- Multi-player is still not working between OSX and Windows : It's been like that for weeks, and the game was advertised WITH multi-platform play (I know... "it's coming"... yeah...)
- I bought the Carnage DLC : $10 is overpriced for a few quests and some arena-like fights.

Didn't like the 1st Borderlands, but this one- Wow!
by Richard Sherwood, USA - Nov 25th 2012
They put so much work and creativity into this one. It's 1st person shooter version of Diablo with vehicles and pretty much everything works very well. It's also a quite beautiful game this time around.
There have been so many times where I'm shaking my head in appreciation and wonder at some really cool event or animation or whatever- I'm addicted.

You don't have to be a fan of Borderlands to enjoy Borderlands 2, but you will be more familiar with the NPC's and get some cosmetic bonuses if you import your saves.
But how is the game? It is AWESOME. In solo or coop the game is riotous fun, and a big improvement over the first game, which was already great. The weapons are better, enemies are more varied, AI smarter, locations and levels better designed, and visually its top notch. The game signature humor remains in place, and you will be frequently chuckling or laughing out loud.
The best? Its STEAMPLAY. Means you get access to all the PC players as in Multiplayer, so there's no shortage of people to play with. The only small caveat is that when the PC version gets updated there's a short sync delay as Aspyr has to patch the Mac version as well. So during that time you will be only able to play with Mac players or by yourself.
Overall a game you do NOT want to miss. Better than BL1 in every way and an amazing time with your friends. The base game offers huge amounts of content, and all the DLC (expansion packs) offer a lot more. Don't miss out!
