Being from the UK, the release of Borderlands is dawning upon us.
Personally, I cannot wait. Not even a little bit.
After playing the first game religiously, just hearing the announcement of a sequel made me scream a little bit. With no over exaduration, I genuinely believe the first game, although under-exposed, is up there with one of the greatest games of all time. It has everything;
- Awesome looting
- Decent story (although hard to follow at time)
- Witty humour (I LOVE that in a game)
- Diverse and fun stuff to kill
- Fantasticly hilarious gore (if you didn't get the GOTY edition)
- Four VERY different characters to chose from
- Customisable traits and colours etc.
- Versatile, simple and fun gameplay
I'm pretty sure there's more that just don't spring to mind. However, those above are some of the pieces of an fanatastic world-beating game. Of course, it's all a matter of opinion.. But that goes without saying.
Unless I've been lied to by different sources and my own assumptions, Borderlands 2 will either re-use or improve the points I specified, as well as add some more cool stuff in too. What's not to like?
It looks to me, although of course I can't be sure, they've improved the story. Not that the story was bad in terms of it being poorly written or unrewarding - it is just hard to follow. I would put this down to the lack of cutscenes personally.. But whatever they do to try and improve isn't 100% relevant, I will adore this game either way and I know it.
Other than that, they've just improved on what was already awesome; MORE skills, MORE guns, MORE customization.
That is all for now. I shall be playing I Shall Remain with Kyle now.
