Borderlands 2 review

Reviewed October 15, 2012

Jason Venter says: "There are an insane number of guns in the game, and they grant some nice boosts to the damage you inflict. Your character canít equip weapons that are too powerful, though, so thereís always motivation to level grind together with friends, and to set up impromptu weapon swaps when youíre meeting up after playing in separate parties with other chums. Almost as if by accident, Borderlands 2 becomes a very social game."
