It has guns. It has wit. It has delusional robots… what? Borderlands 2: Game of the Year Edition is the best way to experience Gearbox’s wacky space adventure in a land with procedurally generated guns. Pick a class, grab a gun and go fight the Hyperion Corporation.
takes fun gunplay to a new level.
Randomly generated arsenal
Aren’t you tired of games that have a finite collection of guns and after you see them all there is nothing waiting for you? Borderlands 2 (PC) sneers at them! Almost every gun you find is generated on the spot when you grab it, and they don’t play by the rules. Fire rate, clip size, projectiles per shot, they are all loyal servants to RNGod. And that’s not even taking into consideration elemental affinities and whatever makes these fancy shields work. Endless supply of new, unique weapons, grenades, shields, mods will keep you playing and crunching these numbers like the bones of your enemies.
Excellent, humorous writing
Among all the shooters taking themselves way to seriously, Borderlands 2 isn’t afraid to look silly, talk funny, and make you burst out with laughter.Overhear enemy conversations, or talk to NPCs to hear their stories. Participate in side quests you’d never find in "serious" shooters. Tea parties, odd headhunting and more are just a sliver of excitement and amusement awaiting you in this game. Do yourself a favor and take a deep dive into Pandora’s pool of silliness.
Something for every playstyle
Never a dull moment on Pandora, and the classes you get to play with can handle it just fine. The Commando can deploy a portable turret for extra firepower and companionship. The Siren can capture her foes in a floating stasis field, because singing is too oldschool. If duel wielding any (ANY) gun is more appealing to you, the Gunzerker has just the thing to make you happy. There’s even something for the Stealth fans: the Assassin, able to drop holographic decoys and turn invisible.And since this is GotY Edition, you get two additional characters for being awesome: the Mechromancer can summon a murderous robot, while the Psycho has an axe with a working sawblade attached.
Borderlands 2 GOTY keeps the stylish look of its predecessor and makes it look even better. More details, better designs, and fun all around. Varied environments, and each of them shows the sense of humor with general writing, if you’re perceptive enough.And the guns, oh, the guns. They look better and more ridiculous than ever, and this is how the game likes it. Textures, skins and unique… touches. Borderlands 2 looks great and knows it.
