    A very, very, polished, slow, dull, repetitive game.

    Let me say this right off the bat: Borderlands 2 is not a bad game. Borderlands 2 is NOT a bad game! On the surface, Borderlands 2 is a very good-looking, witty, polished shooter that seems like it would deliver every... Read Full Review

    Don't replay Borderlands just before starting Borderlands 2...

    I kind of made a mistake with this one, and it was one that could have been really easily avoided if I had thought about it a bit. You see, I've been amped for the release of Borderlands 2 ever since I got hold of the... Read Full Review

    DIG UP the treasure, pulse of 200, look into a piece of crap!!!

    Borderlands 2: Bordering On What?

    The first Borderlands game was quite enjoyable, as well as unique. It featured about a bazillion guns, as Gearbox likes to keep reiterating, even now, with the release of the sequel. The question is: aside from the guns,... Read Full Review

    One of the greatest games I've ever played

    Even though it's a good game I was disappointed to find that this game was exactly the first game. :(

    So I put the game in the console, very excited to see what the people from 2K has managed to pull out of their hats, and lo and behold I was looking at an almost identical game from the first one. Graphically and game pl... Read Full Review
