Developed by Gearbox Software and published by 2K games, Borderlands 2 introduces a new way of storytelling. The minimum specifications that you will require to play the game smoothly on your computer are Windows XP, a 2.4 GHz Celeron E1600 Dual-Core or AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual-Core 4600+ processor, an NVidia GeForce 8500 GT or ATI Radeon HD 2600 XT graphics card, 2 GB RAM, and 20 GB free hard disk space.
The single-player campaign in the game promises plenty of action as it features an array of different enemies. From a suicide bomber who charges at you like a freight train to heavily armored bosses, Borderlands 2 features enemies that are vicious in their approach. The game includes new characters, classes and a weapon management system. You can choose to be anyone such as the Gunzerker who can wield 2 weapons at once.
One of the things that you should be aware on planet Pandora is the environment. Using the things available around, you can turn anything into a weapon. This includes corrosive acid, electricity and many other things. The enemy's AI has been tweaked to such a level that they can now organize teams and take you out with defensive strategies. Your opponents can now take more advantage of the environment, take cover and flank you when you least expect it.
The enemies in the game range from Bullymongs and Stalkers to the Hyperion mechanical army and many others. You can even drive cars around the planet to reach your destination much faster. The quests in the game range from rescue missions to taking out battalions of enemies who charge you like a powerful avalanche. All these elements add depth to the gameplay, making the game innovative in its genre.
Customization of weapons has been reworked in Borderlands 2 as you can now select weapons based on damage type, firing rate, magazine size, round type, reload speed and other factors. This is especially helpful when you are out on a mission to obliterate the mechanical army as you can opt for armor piercing bullets to kill your enemies. The game also includes disposable weapons that you can throw at your enemies once you have exhausted the bullets in them. This can be a fun experience as you can annoy your opponents to the hilt by throwing weapons at them every time the bullets get over.
Multiplayer component in the game comes in the form of 4 player online co-op mode or split screen multiplayer. This is a welcome addition to the game as you can race through the missions by teaming up with friends or family members. Several DLCs are in production and will be released once completed. The DLC’s will add new characters and other content to the game. The updates, DLCs and wallpapers for the game can be downloaded directly from the company’s website.
