Borderlands 2 is one of the best co-op experiences of this generation and vastly superior to its predecessor, which is saying a lot. Get lost under a pile of loot as you join friends on the battlefield in your new quest on Pandora.

We like

  • Addictive looting system
  • Terrific co-op experience with solid gameplay
  • Hilarious characters in a vastly improved narrative

We dislike

  • Graphic, mostly texture, issues
  • Occasional bugs
  • Only fair vehicle mechanics and usage

The gameplay was tight, especially in co-op; the artis...
