Does anyone here have Borderlands 2? And if so, would you say its worth it? I almost have enough points to get it on here, but if its not that good I dont wanna waste my points. Ive played Borderlands 1 before and I enjoyed it.

Borderlands 2 is a brilliant game. I have been playing it everyday since I got the game on Friday and love it. Usually i'm not a big fan of RPG games like Oblivion and Fallout but Borderlands 2 is in a class of its own when it uses the RPG elements, you don't have to be strategic with how you tackle enemies (although it can help) you can instead just run in a shoot anything that moves.

Borderlands 2 is also a great improvement over the first game, the enemies are more varied and smarter (they will dodge bullets, roll around and hide behind cover more often), the environment themselves are huge and is more varied such as having snow and actual grass and trees (A great improvement over the first games mostly desert areas and tumbleweeds).

Many enemies are also somewhat harder to beat, such as the robots which can call healing drones to well.... heal themselves and they are very varies with shooting robots, exploding robots, RPG robots, fire robots even a constructor that builds robots. Other enemies will also throw object at you and can cloak themselves which makes them much harder to beat.

Lets not forget the mutants in the game, of which there are also new additions such as "rat" mutants which mostly work in the mines and are very good at dodging bullets.

The dialogue and cutscenes in the game is also extremely funny, trust me you WILL laugh out load playing this game ;) One cut scene involved the boss Bad Maw in which his name showed up and then he puts his shield up with three midgets strapped to it with text saying "and his Merry Midgets". Its just laugh out load funny! :D

And lets not forget guns, shields, grenades, relics, class mods of which there are GAZILLIONS of. no two things will ever be the same in Borderlands.


I could go on forever with what is good with Borderlands but instead I will make a short list.

:check: Lots and lots of guns
:check: Great in single player but Amazing in co-op
:check: Really funny cutscenes
:check: Huge environments
:check: Large variety of enemies
:check: Hundreds of hours of gameplay
:check: Funny characters
:check: Lots of side quests (90 in the main game)
:check: 4 DLC maps incoming with new areas, enemies and missions and new playable character classes
:check: Money, lots and lots of money
:check: CL4P TP :p

Thanks for your input, it definitely sounds like an amazing game! I ordered it off of here, I cant wait to play it :) I love both shooters and RPGS and of the times that I played the first borderlands I really enjoyed it so theres not doubt in my mind that the sequel will be even better. Thank you :D

Borderlands 2 is far better then the original Borderlands and that alone makes it worth buying, Especially if you like the first game.
