Just because practically everything has been done before, doesn’t mean you can’t be original. 2K Games showed that in 2009 by combining the character development structure of Diablo with the fast-paced action of an FPS to give us Borderlands, dubbed a Role Playing Shooter by Gearbox. Even though it was a real breath of fresh air, hindsight always brings great ideas to the table.
The sequel to the 2009 Game of The Year will expand on its predecessor’s gameplay, including limb shot effects and much more intelligent AI, with baddies healing each other and exhibiting a great degree of teamwork in Borderlands 2
The game will no doubt be more difficult the first one, so a Bradygames guide should come in handy, especially when it’s a hardcover limited edition with a third of the price slashed off. Check it out here
