The hook of Borderlands 2, the very reason that I found myself thinking about it when I worked or tried to fall asleep, is the loot. Guns, ammo, character skins, grenade mods, class mods — there’s always something just a bit better, something you so desperately didn’t even know you needed until you found it in Borderlands 2
Hunting for loot becomes rather very intoxicating because of the tiny rush you get each time a rare item spills out of a chest or is dropped by a recently slain enemy. Every firefight and intense boss battle becomes all the more rewarding and makes you want to take on every character or creature.
Guns is the bulk of the loot, and that’s great as you’re going to spend most of your time in Borderlands 2 staring down a gun sight. No matter the quest, at some point something or someone is getting pounded with lead and explosions.Thankfully, snappy shooting and lots of environmental hazards combine with each class’s unique ability to turn every skirmish into a playground. You simply have to decide the best — or most entertaining — way to kill and take down your enemies all guns blazing hell yeah!!
Borderlands 2’s four classes each have a unique ability, meaning there are a lot of options have been added to the skill trees to make it possible to create much more diverse builds. Commando will be about using turrets, Gunzerker about raging out and blasting people with two weapons at once, Siren about using a stun ability called Phase Lock, and every Assassin will be about temporarily cloaking and unleashing devastating surprise attacks. But how you use those abilities and characters function can be tailored to your play style, play your way and develop your unique characters etc. Trying out skills and then reassigning skill points over and over is important in Borderlands 2, especially when you consider that you can play solo or with others. Grouping in Borderlands 2 makes the combat feel different; enemies do really get harder and you can use each class’s power to support your allies, and take down enemies.
You play one of four new Vault Hunters who’ve come to Pandora to hunt for vaults. Unfortunately, since the opening of the last vault the planet’s been all but taken over by Hyperion Corporation and its insidious and somewhat charming leader, Handsome Jack( who is hilariously awesome). Through a number of events outside of your control, you end up getting wrapped up in a plot to stop Jack, save the world and help out some of the citizens and beloved characters from the first game. Simple save the world and kick its ass at the same time kinda plot.
Borderlands 2 I feel is a bad ass game, the art style is so amazing and unique you instantly know your playing borderlands. Additional visual customisation options would make it better kinda going full RPG with it. Overall this is an excellent shooter no one even remotely curious should overlook. Prepare to level. Prepare to loot. Prepare to get lost in the hilarious, bizarre and wonderful world of Pandora. Prepare to fire bullets and plenty of them. I am so enjoying it, loving it I am having so much fun. I am so glad I finally got to play this. What do you guys think? tweet us or leave a reply in the comments.
