It takes the first game, and does everything better.
The playable characters aren't as likeable in my opinion, but all the old playable characters make an appearance.

DLC packs are a little underwhelming though.

This is a tough one. For the most part the 2nd one is a nice improvement, however the raid bosses and farming sucks. Also, the DLC is just miserable so far. The Torgue DLC was funny but it didnt make up for the gameplay.

I'm gonna go on record by saying this: I love Borderlands 2.

It in ways improves the original by offering a larger variety of weapons, missions, locations and enemies, it's even funnier this time around, it's an absolute blast online, and Handsome Jack has shaped himself into one of the most iconic villains in gaming (to me, at least).

However, the past few months haven't been too kind to BL2. The DLC packs released so far have been mediocre at best, the raid bosses are virtually impossible to solo without some sort of exploit, and there have been bugs that reset your Badass Rank and even corrupt your save file. That coupled with the fact that there's no level cap increase until possibly March, and this game has its share of problems.

Don't get me wrong, it's still a great game, but it has some things that make it suck. Who knows? If they do increase the level cap and improve on the next DLC and fix most of the bugs, I might hop back on. Until then, I'm gonna be on Black Ops II and Halo 4 (and Dead Space 3 tomorrow).

You've had it on preorder? You realize it came out like 5 months ago, right?

I know right...


Methinks someone is trying for their 5 posts.


OT: It is worth the purchase. As others have stated, it has done nothing but improve upon the first one. (Although I have not yet completed the game)

It's a gigantic improvement on Borderlands 1 in literally every way, and was one of the greatest games of 2012.

I'd say it's worth it.

My personal opinion it's not nearly as good as Borderlands 1. The weapons seriously lack variety. The story was alright, the bad guy is hilarious and one of the best in a while. Worth getting...just not worth paying full price for.

Core game, great. DLC, waste of money.

Personally, the DLC for 2 sucks. And the game itself isn't as fun as 1, with the impossible to kill bosses in SP. With 2, you almost have to play it in co-op to get anywhere. I played about 10 min. of it last night and stopped. It's just and has been nearly as fun as the first one, which I played the crap out of.

Best game of 2012 hands down imo. And with upcoming game schedule not interesting me much this may turn out to be my most played game of 2013 in a landslide. Def. worth the purchase. DLC is lackluster like everyone has stated.

At this point, you might as well just hold off for the inevitable GOTY edition.
