    Bortherlands 2 is a worthy game but one that could have been so much more. I wish they had done more with the formula and made a more radical sequel but at least they addressed 90 percent of issues with the first one which is really nice.

    Borderlands 2 is one of those games where you start playing, then you look at the time and you go “3 HOURS! NO WAY!”, at least for me anyway.

    Yeah, there’s stuff that could be better, but I enjoyed the fuck out of BL1 and there was tons that could have been better in that, and most of it was better in BL2.

    That’s my point. They’ve addressed most of BL1′s problems and made it a fantastic experience but at the same time, haven’t really expanded or experimented with the formula more than the original. The “FPS Diablo” is really something. BL1 found it. BL2 polished it. Hopefully BL3 can and will expand it.

    They need to make the talent trees more exciting and add more fun abilities.
