Borderlands 2 is an over-the-top, action-packed shooter with a ridiculous amount of weapons and loot to keep you entertained for months. It has a FPS base genre with bits of RPG style and even some humour sprinkled in for a zesty gaming experience. Let's dig in!
Borderlands 2 has a nice post-apocalyptic, cell-shaded look to it that gives it a unique feel while exploring the world of Pandora. Each area of the game has it's own 'theme' to it. There's a cold arctic area, a Mad Max style desert, robot infested factories, and many more. The sounds of the weapons and the explosions are great and the music fits the environment well.
The game has a level system that allows you to pick out perks for your character and upgrade them. There are 4 different character classes for you to try: Siren, Assassin, Commando, and Gunzerker. Each class has their own special ability such as dual-wielding guns or deploying a turret to help with enemies.
The world of Pandora is massive, but thankfully there are vehicles and teleport stations to help you move quickly through it. You can unlock multiple cars that have unique weapons like explosive barrel launchers or saw-blade slingers. Borderlands 2 boasts that it has over 17 million different guns in it...I don't think any other game has gotten close to that number.
Borderlands 2 also has a great multiplayer system. As more players join, the enemies get tougher and more loot appears. If a teammate snags a weapon you wanted, you can challenge them to a duel for it. The game also has a great sense of humor with jokes hidden everywhere throughout the game.
