IMG Reviews Borderlands 2
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | 1 comment

Inside Mac Games has posted a new review of Aspyr Media's Borderlands 2. The sequel continues the series trademark blending of first person shooter and role playing game elements with action gameplay and zany humor.

Here's an excerpt:

Call of Duty is a brilliant FPS title. Deeply involving, and immersive, it’s an adrenaline rush. But if you want to have fun, enter Borderlands 2. Borderlands, released back in 2009, was a colorful violent frenzy of bullets and gore. Borderlands 2 ups the ante further. Ported to the Mac by Aspyr, this Gearbox Software title is fast paced, and deranged. With a wide array of customizable weapons and co-op multiplayer, it is dangerously addicting. Borderlands 2, with its unique graphics and gameplay, is geared toward fun, not realism. Enemies are now much smarter and they aren’t playing around. In the last edition, there were up to 17.75 million types of gun configurations. They’re a lot more options this time around. Borderlands 2 picks up the story 5 years after the events of the first installment, and it’s a lot more brutal this time around.
