Playing Borderlands 2 is another round of pleasure.
Another round? Huh!
Yeah, the first one was 'playing Borderlands' 😉
So, I was pretty much done with Forza and Assassin's Creed games, and I was on the hunt for a different genre. Plus, I wanted to try a backward compatible game, so I skimmed through my collection and landed on Borderlands. I think at the time, there wasn't much choice in backward compatible games, and the 'lack of options' was one of the main reasons I started playing Borderlands. Anyway, I've never been a fan of first-person shooting games and was hesitant to start it.
Oh boy! The game blew me away in every aspect. Personally, I think it's one of the coolest games out there. The variety of guns, the challenges, and the puns used are probably the best features of the game.
I'm not sure if Borderlands 2 can top the original, but I've only put in about 18 hours so far. I'm still unsure how it's gonna pan out. As of now, Borderlands 2 is tougher, but it's more rewarding and fulfilling.
I wish Microsoft had included Borderlands 2 in their backward compatibility lineup, but they're doing a fantastic job of bringing Xbox 360 games to the Xbox One. I'd love to play Forza Horizon on the Xbox One, heck yeah!
P.S. If you need to check out the challenge list, the link is Borderlands 2 Challenge List.
I always refer to it. Man, I wanna be the greatest BADASS out there, hahaha!
Alright, gotta go - I have some Pyro Nomads and Bullymongs to take down!
