Borderlands 2 Beginning is Amazing
Borderlands 2 has delivered all of what Gearbox Software was promising with its graphics, gameplay, and storyline. I picked up the game last night at midnight and I have not been able to put it down since I picked it up. The introduction is full of action instead of just panning from character to character and the new members of this vault hunting story are introduced through some intense combat followed by a huge explosion in a failed attempt to kill them.
I chose to play as Xero, who is a skilled assassin that uses sniper rifles and revolvers so he is extremely deadly from far away and a blade that makes him the most lethal character while in melee range. The introduction did throw me off just a little bit since it was in the snow and absolutely no time was spent in a blizzard in the original game. Fighting your way through “Bullymongs” and escorting Claptrap through a valley of frosty death, the game has many impressive features. The movement is much more fluid and the guns actually make it feel like you’re shooting a gun when you start getting in to the thick of the action. However, the most important part that Gearbox improved on is the MUSIC, in and out of the battlefield, I found myself listening to the bad-ass soundtrack that goes perfectly with the game.
The beginning of Borderlands 2 has been nothing but flawless so far and I can’t wait to get my hands on the rest of the game. Yes the only thing that was annoying was the sound of Claptrap’s voice while he panicked and rolled around full of fear but the game would not be a sequel to Borderlands if it didn’t have a small, annoying, breakdancing robot.
