X360A Review: Borderlands 2
Written Monday, September 17, 2012 By Richard WalkerView author's profile
There's nothing quite like Borderlands. Its blend of shooting and loot collecting is in a class of its own, but it's the charisma, anarchic attitude and downright charm that won us over. That and the bazillions of guns on offer too, of course. Suffice it to say, we've been relishing the prospect of a sequel for quite some time...
Now Borderlands is back for more, bringing its cel-shaded comic book-style back to Pandora for another round of treasure hunting, as four new vault hunters embark upon a quest for fortune and glory. There's a new antagonist to deal with too, in the swarthy shape of Hyperion's Handsome Jack, who'll resort to any nefarious methods he sees fit to trip you up.
With a real story and more variety this time around, has Gearbox done enough to make Borderlands 2 a sequel worth digging up? Or is it just a load of old Claptrap?
