    Been only 2 days after release but I thoroughly enjoy it. Although leveling up may take some time, the game is AWESOME!

    Good ideas, poorly executed. Poorly detailed environment and NPCs. Good game for someone new to shooters.

    Great game if it was 2007 or 2008. From a modern standpoint, there's a lot of great ideas, but most of them are poorly executed. Enemies are difficult to differentiate from the environment, even on a ...

    An improvement in many ways but still suffers from lingering problems.

    Audio: 8/10 Great voice acting. Good yet repetitive sound effects. Good soundtrack Visuals: 8.5/10 A huge visual improvement from the first game. The entire game looks a lot sharper and well defi...

    Borderlands 2 improves upon 1 in every way, from story, to weapons, to dialogue, the game is great, bring friends.

    Rated on December 29, 2012 by TheDidact

    Borderlands 1 was very ambitious. It wanted to be the Diablo of shooters and boast the biggest arsenal of weapons in any game, ever, which it accomplished. It fell short though, in terms of plot and c...

    Makes Borderlands 1 seem like a Beta!

    Rated on September 26, 2012 by martis7991

    Borderlands 1 seemed like the best thing to hit the shooter world since CoD Modern Warfare's standard changing multiplayer. It incorporated intense gun battles utilizing the seemingly endless supply...

    Borderlands 2 makes many improvements upon the original, but is trapped by the very fact its a sequel.

    Rated on October 29, 2012 by 10finalfantasy

    When Borderlands first came out it seemed like such an obvious melding of genres, innovative yet familiar, it sparked the question, "Why hadn't anyone tried this before." In the 3 years since the laun...

    This game takes what the first game did right, and made it even better. Anyone who has played the first will definitely enjoy this even more. As for most of the negative player reviews, these ppl ...
