The really knew what they were doing when they made this sequel. It has everything that was great about the last Borderlands, but improves on the things that needed to be fixed.
The robot guide, Claptrap is back and still as funny/annoying as ever. From the moment you put in the game, you'll be laughing a lot.
As with the last game, it costs a little bit of money when you die and respawn from one of the checkpoint terminal machines. One of the times I respawned, the machine said, "There's a discount available for respawning. The discount ends in ThreeTwoOneZero. Aww. Too bad."
Trust me, you will laugh a lot in this game.
The game still has all the great weapon mods, like explosive rounds, etc. There's still a ton of different kinds of weapons to find/loot. They still have the vending machines to buy and sell the weapons, so you will get rich.
One of the things I hoped they would change in this sequel, they did fix. The vehicles are ten times better, and you can even customize them a bit, same as with the characters.
The landscape and the graphics both look a lot better than the last one too. It's not just all desert for most of the game, so you'll want to explore, and you will explore. There's all the familiar stuff to loot in all corners of the maps, which means your backpack will be full most of the time.
In the first thirty minutes of the game, I was already very glad I bought this game, not to mention it arrived at 9:30 in the morning on the release day. Walmart's been doing really great with getting new games to us on the release day, so I think I'll get more of my games here.
