  5. Worthy sequel
    by thewileyman, USA - Jan 24th 2015

    UPDATE: Came back to this after a staying away from first-person shooters for a while and found it much more enjoyable. I'm pretty close to the endgame and I had a good time getting there (except for fighting the constructors—those are a pain). Not quite as happy with the weapons this time around. Still think the first one was better overall, but this is a worthy sequel.

    ORIGINAL REVIEW: For some reason I can't quite describe, my response to Borderlands 2 is pretty much "Meh."

    I loved the first Borderlands. Played through it a couple of times with different classes. Had a blast. Great atmosphere, enjoyable story, crazy guns.

    Starting out Borderlands 2, though, I just couldn't get involved. Perhaps it's too much of the same. I've put more than a few hours into it but just can't find the motivation to continue. Kinda disappointing, because I was really looking forward to it.

    (Note: My copy was purchase through the Mac App Store — I couldn't get Steam to function on my Mac at the time.)

  6. Wild!
    by lowkeyloki, USA - Nov 12th 2014

    The frontier-feel gives this FPS/RPG an exciting Wild West feel! A compelling story combined with incredible visuals and adrenaline-inducing action makes this game worthy of any time spent relaxing/procrastinating. As Salvador the Gunzerker says: "THIS IS AWESOME!"

  7. Ottima
    by marcosta11, - Oct 31st 2014

    La grafica a parer mio e eccezionale… la storia e travolgente e accattivante, ti prende subito. veramente ottima per chi piacciono giochi openworld. l'unica pecca, mi era piaciuto più il primo capitolo della serie in quanto le vicende più reali e meno astratte

    [The graphics in my opinion and great ... the history and overwhelming and captivating, you'll quickly. really great for those who like games openworld. the only flaw, I liked it more than the first installment of the series as the story more real and less abstract]

    by davtheone, Spain - Aug 30th 2014

    Borderlands 2 looks and feels exactly as Borderlands 1. However, it is still fun to play in Co-op mode.

  11. Blood Guts and Comedy
    by walkingbearclaw, USA - Aug 3rd 2014

    I run this on a June 2012 Macbook Air and althouth the graphics may not be up there the experience is still the same. The leveling systems you busy but does not limit you to a certain subclass since you can re allocate points. Great game.

  12. Perfect Game
    by Eric Ferraro, Canada - May 26th 2014

    Such a fun game, it's the perfect mix of RPG and shooter and is without question the most fun game of the PS3/360 generation. Game runs well on meduim settings on my 13" rMBP. The story is decent and funny, but this is the kind of game where the addicting gameplay could make even the worst story exceptional.

  14. Beautifully designed, but tedious after while.
    by Ken Spiker, USA - May 6th 2014

    This game has a lot going for it, not the least that you have about 1000 different guns to choose from and lots of interesting tactical sitiuations. As a shooter it's a pretty good one, if all you want to do is shoot and kill things. Well, that's what a shooter's for, isn't it? But I found after while I became bored and frustrated with it.

    My main problem was that there's never any rest or respite and no puzzles to solve. You're constantly and viciously attacked everywhere you go, not only by the armed enemies but by the local fauna who are nasty and relentless. In trying to navigate within an area you have to fight off swarms of winged beasts, flying insects, giant worms and huge lumbering crab-like creatures. There's no time to explore or plan your next move. Then there's the way the checkpoints work: your game is saved at frequent checkpoints, so if you die during a session you go back to the last checkpoint; however, if you leave the game and go back you'll find yourself at a major waypoint which may be far away from your last checkpoint and you will have to fight your way back to where you were. All the baddies have respawned, though your goals and progress within a quest have been saved. The third annoyance is purely personal, I just don't like the comic book style of graphics. Somehow the bold outlines of everything ruin the feeling of immersion. All these are my observations and for some players Boerderlands 2 is the perfect game. But be warned: you don't have a lot of time to explore or recoop between battles. It's almost all shooting, all the time.
