  1. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. Awesome Sequel
    by Wumpus, USA - Nov 21st 2012

    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!
