Comment: Borderlands 2 is without a doubt one of the best titles to be released in recent years. We stand victorious after another battle, ammo, cash and bodies littering the ground. Yet we can't deny that we feel a little sad. Before us lies a Loaded Widow Maker. With ten rounds per clip and a damage rating of 226, it's definably better than our beloved Dastardly Revolver, a seven-shooter with a rating of 139. But, firing as fast as we can pull the trigger, that Dastardly Revolver has loyally dropped tens of bandits for us in showers of damage points. Can we really come to love the Widow Maker as much? We compare the reload time, fire rate and accuracy, and it's slightly lower in all respects – enough to allow us to entertain the idea that we might spurn the new gun. Decisions of the mind and heart are the crux of Borderlands, the FPS-cum-RPG that has possibly the greatest practical understanding of what makes a great shooter: guns. And by guns, we mean the interplay between a lot of different parameters, each of which both Gearbox and you explore in the shitloads of guns in Borderlands 2. There are the basics – accuracy, fire rate, reload time, clip size, and damage output – but there is a lot more besides. What is the speed of bullet travel? Do you like the reticle, or does it aim into iron sights? What is your peripheral vision like when aiming, and how’s the zoom? What is its kickback like? How many rounds does it consume per shot? And that is before considering the five types of elemental bonuses. You might also care what it looks and sounds like, from the boom and cast metal of the Jakobs range to the fizz and colourful sheen of Hyperion arms. And you’ll need to think hard about guns, because Borderlands throws a lot of things at you to shoot. In the thick of combat, Borderlands is like Robotron: 2084 – it's about juggling threats, and about movement and precise shooting, whether at long range or short. Borderlands is most certainly not about using static cover to make slow, inexorable progress across its stages. And, yes, it's also like Diablo in terms of
progressing your character through skill trees and gathering sackfuls of shiny loot.d while none of the main characters is the same, they closely resemble their forerunners. The turret-planting Commando is a new take on the Soldier. The Siren returns, but with Phasewalk replaced by Phaselock, a more offensive trick that lifts and holds an enemy in an energy bubble for a few seconds. The Gunzerker is an adaptation of the Berzerker, trading fists for dual-wielded guns. And the Assassin cherry picks talents from the original classes – his Deception ability, which sends out a decoy to distract enemies, is reminiscent of Phasewalking, but his skill trees specialise in sniping (like the Hunter), and melee (like the Berzerker).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.

Comment: It's as if someone had thrown a smatter band in a paint bucket. The screen is covered by high-tech gun smmoke and desert dust. Metal debris from newly blown robot guardians flies past at the same rate as reinforcements reaches the battlefield. In the end the ground gleams in rainbow colors of all the shimmering loot I and my teammates have fought for. We taste the victory and consider to ending the long gaming session, but instead we deicde to play another hour of Borderlands 2.

The sequel to 2009's fresh - but not spotless - "role-playing shooter" is an improvement on all points. As earlier, you choose between four colorful characters/classes and marches out to the open world and take on a main or sidequest. The feeling of freedom is most noticeable when you drive off with a desert car, test the power of 30 million weapons and develop your character - a so called Vault Hunter who takes up the fight against a gooey super villain, Handsome Jack, and his Hyperion Corporation.

You can choose from four characters that represent its respective class - and the entire quartet's gameplay are interesting and carefully balanced. I myself have put the most time on the assassin type Zer0, relying on the sniper rifles and a special ability that allows him to send out a misleading hologram copy of himself. But the dual wield-skilled Salvador is also very fun to play war with. Maya, which can let enemies hang in the air with its phase shift capability, and Axton with his practical turrets are also available to choose from.

Overall, Borderlands 2 is an effectively contrasting game and not just because of the different characters. Hectic battles mixed with thoughtfulness. Seal the aisles with open countryside. To methodically compare different guns, ponder on grenade modifications and how to spend their "Badass-points" to boost your hero is perhaps not for the restless player, but for me it is a very pleasant thing to do.

Just like its predecessor, it is in co-op mode that Borderlands 2 shines brightest. If you have 3 friends and play online, you get the best experience. Both the exploration of Pandora's new zones and the intense fighting is in the right company a blast and a convivial camaraderie occurs quickly during debate about who should have a newfound weapon, or about how a stubborn boss should be handled best.

Even in split-screen the collaboration works nicely, and despite having lack of screen, it is an excellent thing to do on a lazy Sunday. Personally, I have shared many laughs and sensible battles with my friends, and above all an incident with a high leveled Loot Midget who jumped out of a seemingly innocent weapon box, is already an in-house classics.

Sustainability also get full marks, because even after 40 hours I still had much left to do. There's always an extra sidequest to embark on, another Sanctuary-resident to chat with or more weapon variations to experiment with. To start over the game, with a new class also gives variation, and for a cheap price, you can also change your existing character to see how another climbing in the skill tree affects the fighting.

Then it comes to the graphics. Screenshots and trailer movies have been gossiping about it for long, but the realization of how beautiful, unique and cocky designed Borderlands 2 is still feels surprising in my adventures in Pandora. Iceberg peaks with sharp contours, the colorful bosses and the way numbers and text streams from hitten enemies. It's simply breathtaking.

The graphics style also fits very well together with the relaxed and humorous tone of Borderlands 2. Considerably more dialogue from the CPU have been recorded this time, comparing to the first game, and it constantly makes you giggle. Claptrap, the ever cheeky robot sidekick, is in his best moments as funny as Wheatley in Portal 2, and even the loading screens tip texts oozes of the distinctively Borderlands attitude.

And it is precisely this attitude that can only be described as "very Borderlands". It's what gets me and my co-op friends to return to Pandora again and again. It's great fun and addictive to adventure in the world, hear the bullets whiz and forge stronger ties with my vault hunter, defined by my own choice. Borderlands 2 is without a doubt excellent.
