As someone who fell in love with Borderlands on PC (notwithstanding its UI issues), got disappointed by its ending, and then fell back in love with its amazing DLC, I eagerly jumped into this game with very high expectations. Gearbox Software has met them all, though, and even exceeded them in quite a few ways through its insanely diverse gun selection, continued use of the right kinds of humor to keep me laughing, and a fun-oriented style of play that can challenge me properly without making things so tough that I can’t progress at all. The world’s bigger and badder, the visuals are more impressive, the best characters return alongside plenty of great new ones, and the endless search for new loot proves to be even more addictive than before. Borderlands 2 on PC is just plain awesome and will definitely be one of my candidates for Game of the Year.

there are a few areas in which Borderlands 2 falls short. Much as in the original, there isn’t a system for fast travel within a particular zone; this becomes painful when vehicles are unavailable or blocked, as completing a quest might require a few minutes of walking. The UI has been redone for tasks such as looking at your skill trees or inventory, but the new UI makes it cumbersome to switch between skill trees even though there is enough screen real estate to show them all. You can press a key to see all three trees, but in that mode, the tooltips don’t work. Finally, switching weapons still seems like a "pick until you win" scenario, as there are no on-screen elements that show your gun order as you scroll through the options. This gets more frustrating when you can equip four guns and you wonder — in the midst of a gun battle — if your shotgun is after your sniper rifle or your assault rifle.

it seems crass to judge a game by quantity, but this is quantity of quality. So if the amount of money you spend on games is a practical concern, it’s worth saying that this one is freakishly good value. Even if it’s not a concern, it’s worth saying that this one is freakishly good.

it feels funny to say this about a 13-year-old developer with a portfolio of work that includes Half-Life and Counter-Strike expansions, stellar squad-based WWII shooter franchise Brothers in Arms, and the original Borderlands, but with Borderlands 2, Gearbox has arrived as a real blockbuster studio. Right from the toe-tapping "Short Change Hero" opening cinematic, Borderlands 2 stands out as Gearbox’s magnum opus, and one of the most memorable and fun gaming rides I’ve ever been on.

Compared to the dull, empty-eyed stoicism of so many triple-A games, it’s still a welcome blast of idiot humour, too. How many other action-game heroes tackle enemies called Bullymongs by backing straight over them in a Hummer? How many others enter a room and chuck down a turret with a lofty shout of "Meet mah girlfriend"? And how many others fight through the scrum until their bullets are all gone and their quad-barrelled shotgun is click-click-clicking on empty chambers, yet can still look like they’re having the best time of their ever-lovin’ lives?

I obsessed over the original Borderlands in spite of its flaws. Earning loot and exploring every little corner of the world became top priority for me when that game was released, and I kept up with its DLC add-ons, doing my best to ignore their decidedly uneven quality. Borderlands 2 is a better game in most of the ways that matter, but some of that is brought down by the familiarity of the experience. Perhaps some of that is on me and spending a couple hundred hours with the first game has rendered me resilient to some of the new game’s charms, but as someone who went into Borderlands 2 with a sickness that I thought only more Borderlands could cure, I’m left feeling like I didn’t receive a full dose this time around.
