Borderlands 2 isn't just and FPS meets RPG mash-up in a Call of Duty rip-off. No, it's something complete different and engaging. It takes the Borderlands game to a new level in so many different areas. The story, the characters, the writing, the acting, and don't let me forget, the freakin' guns! They make the game completely entertaining."2" brings expanded skills, deeper NPC's, a bigger Pandora, and more convenient game-play. Even the multiplayer modes are enhanced, making social aspects even better.
As a "space western", it brings back some faint memories of FireFly, but that's not why the game is awesome. Set about 5 years in the future from the original Borderlands game, the Vault Hunters are back and suckered into a Handsome Jack booby-trap. You continue by helping the Guardian Angel, performing quests to help other NPC's as you gain experience and skills. You must work you way through the quests to complete Borderland 2, and you may need the help of others to make things easier.
The game also introduces five new playable characters: Salvador (a "gunzerker"), Maya (a "siren"), Axton (the "commando"), and Zer0 (the "assassin"), and Gaige (a "Mechromancer"). The last of which is part of a DLC pack. The characters from the original Borderlands ( Brick, Mordecai, Lilith, and Roland) aren't playable, but they do participate in some of the quests as NPC's.
