For the kind of game Borderland is I think the story is pretty good, I mean you can't expect Shakespeare's on an FPS can you?. I spent countless hours with the first one and all of them were pure fun. I'm in for seconds.

The story in Borderlands was

The story in Borderlands was great, but you weren't really immersed in it unless you were really trying to.

By the looks of it, Borderlands 2 has more cinematics and dialogues to help the player get more involved and engaged with the story. :)


The story was non existent, go here, kill these guys, get slightly better gun, grind some moar, do short vehicle mission with appalling physics and handling, kill some moar, repeat, find treasure, the game.
I was really hyped for this when it first came out, I felt so violated when I realized the good job the trailer did to sell it to me... This one just looks more of the same imo... and sure a bazillion guns... more like 30 with slightly different ways of making damage. Not to mention the horrible rigid arcade rail shooter feel it had.
This game blows...

Borderlands was awesome.

Got a little repetitive at the end but when I played Rage recently I was amazed how poor it was. It`s fine as a tech demo for the future but the world and missions were so narrow and linear.
Borderlands felt much bigger, the shooting mechanics were/are better which is odd since ID created this genre.
Just hope it isn`t a neutered console port.
Colour me excited.
