Re: Borderlands 2 announced
I'm playing through Borderlands for the first time right now. Bought it during the Steam summer sale. Some of my impressions:
+ Awesome art-style and visuals. The entire presentation is just great.
+ It makes XP grinding fun.
+ Good shooting/power mechanics.
- Awful awful friggin awful enemy AI. This needs to be fixed. I have some enemies shooting "at me" when I'm in a building and they are behind another wall.
- The quests are totally repetitive but I can sorta see why. This game is far more focused on action than storytelling. The quests themselves aren't important, the XP is.
It definitely gets me interested in the sequel.
