Review : Borderlands 2 - Pointless FPS Funny Meme One-Liner Game

Do you like playing first person shooter with small of rpg elements and ability trees, Borderland franchise is what right for you who likes grinding and loot items such rare weapons and items that help you finish the quest or fight boss without too much effort after finishing one side quest to other while you shoot same thing over and over. That’s my impression for every rpg games, and its not bad thing.

Borderland is kind of the game that you hate to play due the repetitiveness in every single quest, shoot and loot by fight against one level up stronger enemies, fetching cryptic items to reveal storyline and also inflated money that is useless to use after getting strong item to equip. And still, players can really enjoy the game theme where you can pick four different class characters which the storyline consist of bounty hunter in wasteland planet called Pandora.

The humourous tone of story-telling that makes killing psycho looks fun meanwhile players get spouted of 00’s meme catchphrase along the game by non-playable characters who are borderline of funny and annoying with the screaming and quips. Its very enjoyable storyline to get to know about an ambitious main boss want to control the planet which personally makes think its great writing of character who makes player chuckle in every single line the boss said any thing.

During the game, players can get to know more stories about character and lore if doing quest where the game relies on audio recording instead of cutscenes, but don’t bother too much doing all the task because some are too hard to do and player have to backtrack in any visited map if the players just want to progress the game only playing the main quest and that’s it, some DLC are worth to play for story but being too dull if players are already over-level because killing enemy will become a chore than challenging, there is something about “BS moment” where sometimes if players are too over-confident to fight against horde of enemy, they are likely become more hard to kill and seems the universe in this game want you to die which cost a lot of your earning money.

Borderland 2 is easy to play the game if players know how to build the skillset and know the role, eventhough I finish the game playing solo, this game can be fun as co-op game because the world and athmosphere of open world with its own unique style gives plus value because its not like AAA 3D games that will age after one decade. So its pleasing game to enjoy with friends or just playing alone.

As sidenote : Borderland 1 has slight different theme where its trying to be more serious game where later the tone in the sequel becomes more light-hearted and funny.

Cons :

- Fun and Hilarious touch
- Ridiculous characters with memorable final boss
- Challenging to level up
- Trying to be meme game

Cons :

- Repetitive quest with same element of collecting stuff
- Cryptic fetch quest
- DLC are pointless if player is overpowered.
- Money are too inflated

Final Verdict : 8/10
Finished : 4 Juni 2019
