Borderlands 2 is one of the most anticipated games coming out this fall. The first installment in the series was known for its wild antics, crazy humor, and all-around fun action. The question is can Borderlands 2 live up to this and exceed it?
So far indications are yes it will live up to the title and will most definitely exceed the wild, crazy, fun of Borderlands. The success of the previous games allowed the makers to go after ambitious goals and have a larger budget. The game is still a first person shooter but now has more RPG elements weaved into the game. There are far more side-quests, more enemies, and more ways to customize your appearance and guns. The game still takes place on the desolate wasteland of Pandora and many of the same enemies reappear in the sequel.
For those of you who have not played the first game of the series, Borderlands was a first-person shooter with a few RPG elements. The graphics are more cartoon-ish than most games and the story isn’t terribly deep. Yet the humor, great action, and all-around bad-ass feeling of the game made it one of the most surprising titles a few years back. It is extremely well made and anyone who plays it will have a ton of fun.
This game will no doubt be a best-seller this year. The first game was so good I will undoubtedly be buying the second.
How about you, will you buying Borderlands 2? What’d you think of Borderlands?
