Review Roundup: Borderlands 2

The scores are coming in for Borderlands 2, Gearbox's eagerly awaited co-op RPG shooter hybrid sequel, and it's looking like universal acclaim.

"An excellent shooter no one even remotely curious should overlook," is IGN's verdict, sitting atop a 9/10 score. "Prepare to level. Prepare to loot. Prepare to get lost in the hilarious, bizarre and wonderful world of Pandora."

Eurogamer agrees, adding another 9/10 to the stack. "Borderlands 2 is still a hillbilly moonshiner sort of game," says their review, "But it's the hillbilly at his canny, tinkering, big-dreaming best. It's the hillbilly at the peak of his powers. It's the hillbilly made majestic."

There are also 9/10 scores from both the Official Xbox and Official PlayStation magazines, while Play magazine dished out - yes - a 9/10 while declaring Gearbox's labour of love to be "an excellent lesson in sequel-making and is easily one of 2012's best games."

Even the posh papers have joined the chorus of praise. "Whether players are ploughing through icy tundra, driving across a desert, picking their way through a goop-filled cavern or blasting through a gang's blood-daubed hideout, Borderlands 2 feels consistently fresh", reckons The Guardian's five-star review. "This is a world to lose yourself in - and thanks to the addictive quality of the game's loot-drops, it's likely many players will do just that."

Drooling much? Don't worry - Borderlands 2 is out this Friday for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC.
