Die ersten Testberichte zu Borderlands 2 sind online – und damit auch die ersten Wertungen, die definitiv überzeugen können.
„Light on story and heavy on guns. Borderlands 2 is saved from XP strip-mining by a sharp sense of humour and a slick, destructive multiplayer.“
OXM UK: 9
„The words „awesome“ and „badass“ are used a lot in this game, but Gearbox has earned the right.“
OPM UK: 9:
„If you’re tired of brown military shooters and crying out for something different, then get involved – this is one of the most imaginative and rewarding blasters of the year.“
„Gearbox knows more about the fundamentals of the shooter than almost any other developer.“
„If you like to shoot, and you dig collecting loot, Borderlands 2 has enough to scratch your itch for some time to come.“
OXM US: 9:
„Developer Gearbox hasn’t messed with success, wisely opting to refine and improve what made the original so great.“
„Stellar writing and a host of small improvements help Borderlands 2 stand tall on the shoulders of its predecessor.“
„Love to collect loot, level up a hero and shoot guys in the face? Then get Borderlands 2 right now.“
„On paper, this sequel reads much the same as the original. But it’s not – it’s a vastly superior game.“
„Borderlands 2 is still a hillbilly moonshiner sort of game, then, but it’s the hillbilly at his canny, tinkering, big-dreaming best.“
„Ocean-deep and country-wide, this huge RPG will keep you going for months before you even need to think about DLC. Oh, and it’s probably one of the best co-op games you’ll ever play.“
