Borderlands 2 Reviewed

Mac|Life 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 packed gameplay and zany humor. It features all new characters and classes, cross platform online play, a new story, new gun system, new environments, and new enemies.

From the review:

While Borderlands 2 still focuses on the shoot-and-loot, quest-based gameplay that made the original game so popular, the deep storyline is a vast improvement. Non-player characters are actually a pleasure to encounter, and the plot -- about corporate thug Handsome Jack's dominance over Pandora and its Eridium mineral deposits proves just as intriguing as the ever-present need to find the best weapon imaginable.

Speaking of weapons, or more accurately crazy guns: Borderlands 2 has an absolutely insane amount of unique ordnance. The first Borderlands kept players chugging along and pairing up with a few buddies to find the rarest items around. Borderlands 2 takes that idea to extreme lengths. Granted, the plot is enough to make the quest-line interesting, but the possibility of finding some insanely powerful gun or a grenade mod capable of lobbing 10 explosives at the same time is joyfully addictive.
