The Borderlands 2 Comes with 4 different classes that you can choose from and it depends which one you chose as to what is the outcome of the gameplay. Lets see below the different classes and see which one best fits you.
- Salvador / Gunzerker class - Gunzerking – Salvador can dual wield ANY gun in ANY combination. Want a sniper rifle and a rocket launcher? Go for it! Two guns are better than one!

The SKills Tree is huge in Borderlands 2 as you can upgrade it during the playthrough by looting or collecting money from the different ways you destroy your enemy. The game will take you about 30+ hours to complete as it comes with different different ways to play it. You can play it solo or co-op with other 3 or online too. The game’s AI is something to respect as it does the unthinkable and will have you on the tip of your toes to make sure they don’t get you.
I love it when a game is challenging and makes you work, Borderlands 2 make you do that and much more as you play through the different levels and quests in the game game.
Weapons are huge in the sequel just like the original and along with great writing and fantastic dialogue with humor to go around through the entire 30+ hours. The game comes with over 1 million guns that you just don’t have enough time or space for them. Choose which weapon you like to use and also get a second and third and so on.
Borderlands 2 comes with a few negatives, which include the lack of vehicles and customization. Please see the video review above for more details on this.
Looks like Gearbox found new colors and got rid of the brown color that you see in call of duty game and made pandora and all characters more appealing. I found that is more fun playing a game that has all different colors as it keeps the surrounding textures changing, however there are some parts of the game where the texture did not live upto it and you see frame out of place and some blurry spot but that did not mess with my gameplay.
Humor and writing and voice acting were hilarious. I had forgotten how borderlands sense of humor was and its sequel just step it up another notch which keeps the game entertaining. Face it we want games that keep us engaged.
Hilarious sense of humor, with millions of guns to go around and over 30+ hours of gameplay make Borderlands 2 a must play game and have. For the retail price this game is worth it and is something that you don’t want to miss on. Gamerfuzion gives Borderlands 2 a 4.6 out of 5.
