Borderlands 2 is a game that have gone unnoticed by me for years (and that goes for the original ‘Borderlands’ from 2009 too) and I never did take the time to read up on the game and what it was all about. I blame this on ‘Lord of the Rings Online’, that i had a serious relationship With around 2012 when the game came out, and I never crossed path with Borderlands again until quite recently.
As usual, there was a sale on Steam and this game was featured as a ‘Nice buy’ for less than 8$ (7 Euro). Me and a few of the lads in the Clan was on the lookout for a little game to play, and since it was ‘Game of the Year’ in 2012, we took the chance on it.
I dare to say that this game is one of my best buys this year!
I Fired it up and played for three hours straight… and it was only the knowledge about going to work the NeXT day and that sleep might be a good idea for that, that kept me from playing it longer. This game is insane 🙂
Not sure how to describe this game as a genre, but its kind of a MMO thats gone wild With whatever weapon you can dig up through the universe, where the universe is a post-apocalyptic-neo-punk-steam type of Place…and where the population has gone bonkers 🙂 Its set in a cartoonish style of setting, something that suits the game very well if you ask me (and since i’m the one writing this, you got no say in the matter 🙂 ), and take a look at the videos at the end of this page for a peek inside the game yourself.
Seen the Movies ‘Mad Max’, ‘Sin City’, ‘Cannibal the Musical’, ‘every single Kubric movie’ and most of the early Stallone movies? Then mix it together With a few tons of ammunition, very bad humor and a wide variety of npc characters… and you dont get half of the fun that Borderlands 2 is 🙂
I recommend playing this game with at least one friend and if you got enough of ’em, with three others to have someone to share the laughter and insanity moments that happens frequently in this game. Its also very nice to work together when you can help each other out with a helping hand. Its a four-people CO-OP, and does not have a PvP modus (and you dont need that either, its that good 🙂 ).
And then there is ClapTrap…. enough said 🙂
