Borderlands 2 on the PlayStation 3 is a non-stop, action-packed orgy of shooting and looting, fusing the rapid pace and extreme firepower of a first-person shooter with the treasure-collecting and skill-building aspects of a role-playing adventure. Your experience of the game will depend heavily upon which character you control at each point in the action, as well as upon the weapons your character has equipped. Each of the four Vault Hunters has his or her own special skills and style of combat, while each of the crazy guns and weapons you loot along the way will have a direct effect on how the action unfolds. Taking up the tale five years after the events of the original game, Borderlands 2 sees you return to the alien planet of Pandora, now ruled by the ruthless dictator Handsome Jack and his Hyperion Corporation.

Borderlands 2 is the sequel to the acclaimed Borderlands by 2k and Gearbox. In this latest offering you start as a new vault hunter, stranded in snow barren wasteland after Handsome Jack (The leader of Hyperion) tried to murder you on the way to pandora. You are then escorted to safety by Claptrap, your favorite robot back from the first Borderlands.

If you played Borderlands 1, the scenery in 2 will make you feel right at home, the barren wastelands only inhabited by the insane nomads of Pandora, and the cold steel of hyperion robots. The environment is beautiful in its own way though, and very polished. From Epic desert environments to Deep ice cavers, Borderlands 2 is definitely not an eye-sore.

The actual gameplay is very smooth, just like the first Borderlands, moving is smooth, aiming and shooting very consistent and easy. Picking up items though, is still a bit clunky and difficult.

The skill trees are back, basically a replica of the original Borderlands. They have some all new original classes, that are influenced by the original classes. The new classes are, Salvador the Gunzerker, Zer0 the Assassin, Maya the Siren, Axton the Commando, Gaige the Mechromancer.

Salvador the Gunzerker is a dual wielding raging bull. He is inspired by Brick of the original game. He has the ability to wield any 2 weapons at the same time, with increased damage, bullet, and health regeneration. He has the ability to dish out some incredibly insane damage with 2 launchers.

Zer0 The assassin is the sniper/melee class of Borderlands 2. He has a very cool stealth ability, which increases the first damage you do when you exit it. He can pull of some crazy crits out of stealth. He is inspired by Mordecai of Borderlands 1. Zero is the best hunter for the killing of any single enemy quickly.

Maya the Siren, is indeed a siren, like Lilith from Borderlands 1. Maya has a new ability in Borderlands 2, Phaselock. Phaselock suspends enemies midair, temporarily preventing them from moving or attacking. She is a great team player as she has crowd control and healing in her skill trees.

Axton the Commando is inspired by Roland, the original soldier from Borderlands 1. Just like Roland, this Commando can drop a Sabre Turret during a fight. You can build your Commando to have 2 crazy turrets at once, To be an insanely hard hunter to kill, or to increase your skills and damage when your turret is deployed. The commando is a very versatile and defensive hunter.

Gaige the Mechromancer is a brand new and completely original vault hunter. She is a gadget-savvy mix between human and machine. Her playstyle is formed around movement, elemental damage, and pet support. Gaige's action skill is Death Trap, a Huge machine of bad ass death. It can act as a tank or a huge damage dealer.

Borderlands also comes with a whole bunch of very well made DLC, so many that this review cannor do justice to them all.
