    dmullig2's Borderlands 2 (360)

    [September 23, 2012 07:46:57 PM]
    About a week ago, I bought Borderlands 2. I havenít played all of the game yet, but it is safe to say that it is one of the best games I have played in a long time. I have played the first one about half way through until I got bored with it. However, that doesnít seem to be the case with this one.

    The reason I got bored with the last game was probably because there was no real plot driving me through the game and also the fact that the classes to choose from were kind of boring. This game remedies that with an actual story that is exciting and engaging which helps me progress. Also, the classes have been given an overhaul, however, still retaining some elements from the first game. I have played through two of the classes and can say that both of them have been very satisfying to use. Each class comes with a special ability. The two classes I tried had abilities such as sending out a decoy and cloaking, so the player can get the kill from behind. The other class I played had a deployable turret, which was useful if playing by myself.

    However, the main draw of the game is the loot system. Borderlands 1 and 2 do a great job with this. Instead of the typical reward system seen in many games, this game offers random pick ups almost everywhere in the game. Instead of having to complete high end quests to pick up some good guns, the player can instead just look around, possibly doing some side quests and just stumble onto some great weapons. This system really works in providing a reward for the player without having it feel like chasing a carrot on a stick. This drive for better and cooler items is basically the main reason why I want to play the game.
