Borderlands 2 is what most people expected. More of the same, but better. More than anything else it's all about reward. Put the time in and you absolutely will be rewarded for it and in so many different ways. With more guns than any other game, endless loot, dozens of hours worth of playtime (potentially going well into the hundreds for truly dedicated players) and one of the best antagonists in recent years, it is an absolute gem and, providing that RPGs are your thing, will keep you entertained for longer than you could ever imagine.

Go buy the game now and prepare to loot and shoot your way across a whole new Pandora. There's also a veteran reward for players who have an original Borderlands save game, how about that for loyalty? Gearbox is also a top quality developer and Games Xtreme would like to take a moment to say how touched we are that they put a memorial character to Michael Mamaril into Borderlands 2. Class act!

Borderlands 2 is a fantastic sequel full to the brim with colour, verve and personality, excelling as an enjoyable shooter with involving RPG elements despite more fetch quests than several dogs will experience in a lifetime. It's all wonderfully well-executed and fun to play, making Borderlands 2 more than worth your loot. Catch a riiiiiide!

So overall, yeah I approve of this game and urge you to go get it. In a world where Call of Duty and Halo have bogged down the first person shooter, Borderlands 2 offers a nice change of pace to what is out there. So go grab it and I will see you all out there on Pandora.

Se non avete mai giocato a Borderlands potreste guardare con sospetto chi era palesemente esaltato dall’uscita del secondo capitolo: il gioco è avvincente, profondo e molto longevo e il suo stile originale spassono lo rendono assolutamente irresistibile. Chi è innamorato di Battlefield o altri FPS più simulativi potrebbe storcere il naso, ma se gli dedicasse qualche ora sono certo che resterebbe affascinato dalla sua epica giocabilità! Compratelo, non ve ne pentirete di certo!

If you like co-op it’s a no-brainer, buy it now. If you don’t like co-op maybe you should think more carefully. But I’d prefer to encourage you to buy it and learn to love co-op. In Borderlands 2 this should take you all of 5 minutes once you’ve got either 3 chums available or have used the excellent inbuilt matchmaking options to form a full party of 4.
Console Obsession (Oct 05, 2012)
Though it hasn’t changed enough to convince those that didn’t get on well with it first time around, by refining and improving most of the weaker components, with Borderlands 2 Gearbox has assembled a game that is without question a better game than its predecessor, taking the delightful combination introduced in the original title to heights lofty enough for it to be one of the finest, most amusing and downright enjoyable games of 2012.
Console Monster (Oct 21, 2012)
For fans of the original Borderlands this will be a must buy, but for those who are still on the fence, it’s time to come down. Borderlands 2 has everything that made Borderlands great while improving on the things that players found dull in the first game – most notably the bland environments. Although we are going to see a lot of games releasing next month, if you still haven’t picked up Borderlands 2, I would highly suggest you go out and grab it right now!

Och just den attityden, som bara kan beskrivas som "väldigt Borderlands", är vad som får mig och mina co-op-vänner att återvända till Pandora, om och om igen. Det är fantastiskt kul och vanebildande att äventyra bland dessa vidder, höra kulorna vina och knyta allt starkare band till min vault hunter, definierad av mina egna val. Gearbox spel kommer att ligga kvar i både mitt spelrum och mitt minne en lång tid framöver.
Borderlands 2 is one heck of a game. The improvements are many, the narrative is well written and told, and the game’s characters are voiced by some great voice actors. Add to this the addictive nature of searching for loot and ability to play the game’s story and sidequests with friends online, and you have all the elements of an excellent game. That being said, the overall experience is affected somewhat by the unexpected technical issues I mentioned earlier in this review. At the end of the day Borderlands 2 is a game that should be played, as the fun factor is high, the addictiveness is through the roof, and the game provides hours of gaming entertainment.

Assez frileux en termes d'innovations, Borderlands 2 n'aura cependant aucun mal à convaincre le public averti auquel il se destine. Bien réalisé, fluide, dynamique et absolument jubilatoire à plusieurs, ce titre irrévérencieux constitue actuellement un défouloir de premier choix dans la catégorie assez formatée des FPS contemporains. Vu son potentiel de rejouabilité et les nombreux DLC qui ne manqueront pas de débarquer dans les prochains mois, on n'est pas prêt de le lâcher.
IGN (Sep 13, 2012)
Borderlands 2 preserves the best parts of the franchise while also making numerous, much needed improvements to areas like narrative and class skill design. Additional visual customization options would make it better, and the occasional technical issue takes away from the experience, but 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.

Dieses lockerleichte Fallenlassen in einen makaber-witzigen Shooter-Comic – ob online oder offline, mit Freunden oder im öffentlichen Spiel – packt Borderlands 2 ganz hervorragend! Pandora ist bunter, lebendiger und es gibt mehr zu entdecken als im Vorgänger. Die Gegner agieren diesmal geschickter, greifen in bunten Gruppen an, so dass bis zu vier Helden clever zusammenarbeiten müssen: Aufeinander abgestimmte Elementarschäden und Stellungsspiel sind ungemein wichtig. Leider kommt das Abenteuer spielerisch und erzählerisch dabei nur langsam in Fahrt und bleibt gelegentlich in einer gleichförmigen Missionstretmühle hängen. Und es nimmt ausgerechnet auf seine Helden keine Rücksicht, wenn ehrgeizige Erfahrungssammler mit lächerlich banalen Bosskämpfen bestraft werden – das darf nicht passieren!

Difficile de bouder son plaisir : la variété de ses quêtes et son humour omniprésent font de Borderlands 2 un très agréable défouloir, surtout en co-op où il dévoile son véritable potentiel. Le jeu reste agréable à parcourir en solo même s'il ne s'agit pas là du meilleur moyen de récupérer le loot le plus épique. On regrettera des classes finalement un peu similaires, aux différences trop peu marquées. Pour le reste, c'est du bon.
Legendra (Oct 02, 2012)
En bref, Borderlands 2 est une valeur sûre du fun entre potes. Avec son univers déjanté, ses décors variés et sa finition presque impeccable, il promet de vous accrocher pendant une bonne trentaine d’heures. On peut toutefois lui reprocher quelques ralentissements intempestifs et la trop grande impression de rejouer au précédent opus. Fort heureusement il fait mieux que Borderlands en améliorant à peu près tous les points sur lesquels ce dernier pêchait. En attendant Borderlands 3…

Borderlands 2 is annoying at times, but if you're in the mood to release some aggression you've come to the right place.
