Game Overview

Borderlands 2 is a first-person shooter with RPG elements that is available on the PC, Xbox 360 and Playstation 3. It was developed by Gearbox Software and is published by 2K Games. The game was released on September 18, 2012, in the US, September 21 in Europe and on October 25 in Japan.

It is a sequel to the 2009 hit, Borderlands, and takes place five years after the events of that game. The game's main antagonist, Handsome Jack, has taken over Hyperion Corporation, and has declared himself the Dictator of Pandora. He completely negated any credit for the first game's protagonists' finding of the Vault, as well as their credit for killing the Destroyer. You play as one of four new protagonists, tasked with killing Handsome Jack and bringing peace back to Pandora.

I actually like the story and humor from
the first game more and gameplay feels
fairly the same throughout both games to
me. Zed and Tannis made BL1 very
interesting, and in this game I would
say Tiny Tina is the best addition for
wacky humor. BL2 is a decent game, but
it's too similar to the first for me.

Just finished this game recently. I
enjoyed the story and combat is much
more intense. But I actually enjoyed the
original more in regards to gameplay. I
prefer its balance.

1 million week 1! Amazing.

VG has been slow in getting updates to
individual game pages compared to
before. Stange, but a million on one
console alone. Man, borderlands is most
definitely a franchise now. I wonder
what's the chances of this outselling
it's predecessor.
