Much better done.
15 November 2012 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

The first borderlands was a fun and unique game when it came out, but I will never go back to it after I played this game. The game play is pretty much the same, but this time it feels much more fluent. The characters each have their own personality, but I really got annoyed with Scooter and Claptrap this time around. Not to mention you never get a break from Handsome Jack, his character is meant to be annoying, but I don't know if they meant it for some of the other characters. I like that they changed the designs of the guns, much more variety than the first game. It was cool to see the first group of vault hunters again. The music is also really good, I especially love the song "Ice", every time I hear it I start getting pumped up. The graphics are better, they look much more clear, but it also has some load in times and the frame rate tends to drop at some points in the game. There is some glitches as well, some of them even screwed up a mission, I had to restart the game. The levelling up system is extremely fun and feels really rewarding. So far this is the only game I got this year and I'm glad I did get it. I did find the second play through mode made things much, much harder, it actually got me angry but the game is too good for me to be put off.

August 20, 2013. Update It's been a long time coming that I wanted to update this review. I've been playing the hell out of this game the last week. Leveling up the Mechromancer I just purchased. The true vault hunter mode just frustrated me with the one shot and I'm done garbage. The Assassin obviously wasn't the best character to try and get to level 50, well I made it to level 42. Any way, the Mechromancer just makes the game much more enjoyable, the deathtrap destroys everything, she is a much better class. That and I've found much better loot this time around. I realized the only difficulty this game offers is enemies that one shot you, it's just plain annoying. 2012 was a pretty crappy year for video games, so this easily takes game of the year for me. There's six characters to play as, so that's 6 play-throughs worth of replay value. I haven't even touched the DLC yet. So this game is on terms with Fallout, for bang for your buck.

Highly recommend to anyone that likes shooters or RPG's, very fun.
