The mean feature that I loved about the Borderlands campaign was the comedy behind it. Ever since Borderlands 2 was announced, I was worried that the humor would either be over-done or non-existent. Thankfully, it's neither.
As shown in the trailer above and below, Borderlands 2 is, to my taste, a hilarious game. Most of the laughs are created by frequent encounters with the lovable Claptrap, a small robot who introduces adventurers to Pandora.
The campaign's story itself is strong too. While Borderlands' storyline left some feeling somewhat disappointed, Borderlands 2 fixes the cracks in the original whilst also paving its own.
As mentioned in the Doomsday trailer, Borderlands 2 has 87 bajizillion guns. It might sound like an exaggeration, but guns from loot chests littered around Pandora are randomly generated meaning that the amount of unique guns could reach 87 bajizillion - if it were a real number.
Optional side missions also play a strong part in the Borderlands 2 experience. While they're not necessary, they have their own mini stories and also provide a lot of the quest-only guns.
After you've completed the game once, you can opt to enter playthrough 2 which sees every enemy scale up to your level. It also sees all of the random loot that's generated souped-up to fulfil your enemy killing needs.
If that's not enough, you can do it once again, entering playthrough 2.5 to acquire even higher levelled gear and guns and trust me, you're going to need it.
Aside from the quest bosses, there are plenty more bosses found towards the end of the playthroughs. Gearbox have designed these bosses with end-game content in mind, so if you aren't near the level cap, you're not going to stand a chance.
Step forward Terramorphous the Invincible, the first post-quest boss you're likely to have the misfortune of encountering. He lives up to his name as you'll struggle to defeat him alone. Even teams of two or three have had problems.
After Terramorphous, there's loads more bosses to sink your teeth into, but you'll have to encounter them for yourself!
