    Borderlands 2 is a first-person shooter RPG (role-playing game) that takes place in the sci-fi world of Pandora where you’re hired to find a mysterious “Vault” left behind by an advanced alien species known as Eridians. This Vault is said to contain immense treasures and your adventures along the way will have you meeting a large variety of funny characters, difficult enemies, crazy creatures, and amazing boss fights. This game has a very detailed and deep leveling system that allows for your characters to harness super fun and helpful abilities to help you blast away at any enemies that happens to get in your way. This leveling system is different and unique for all of the six playable characters.The environments and areas to explore in this game are very different and unique ranging from rolling sand dunes of the desert, to snowy glaciers, to futuristic cities. This game also has a loot system that features randomly generated weapons and gear which means that all loot will be different from the last, this loot generating can generate tons of different items, so many in fact that the developers aren't sure how much. The previous Borderlands game had around 1,750,000 different weapon combinations and the developers say that Borderlands 2 has way more! This game runs very smoothly and I never experienced any lag or framerate drops while playing. The game also features online co-op with up to four players and up to four player split screen which made for some of the best couch co-op gaming I’ve ever had. Borderlands 2 has a very goofy sense of humor throughout the game which always keeps things entertaining. This game will keep its players playing because of its well developed plot, goofy sense of humor, excellent combat mechanics, and its extremely addictive loot system. Even though all of these things make the game very fun to play, no game is without its problems. This game will constantly have you go through areas that are fun, but then have you make the boring trek back through them, this means that a lot of time will be spent on just traveling back from places. Also, a lot of side missions will have you do the same kind of tasks which can be a little repetitive, but if you are paying attention to the dialogue, the story behind these missions really helps in making them seem less tedious. This game also makes it so that in order to level your character to the highest levels you need to replay the game in a different, tougher mode where you get to keep everything you had previously earned. This mode is entertaining due to it introducing many new enemies and loot, but can definitely be repetitive replaying all of the missions again. The final mode is extremely difficult which causes players to think things through much more and utilize the necessary abilities to succeed. Overall, Borderlands 2 is a fantastic game that offers hundreds of hours of fun to anyone who enjoys first person shooters and RPGs

    Great buy but needs Borderlands 1

    I am a HUGE Borderlands fan. I had both GOTYE for Borderlands 1 & 2 on PS3 and played the heck out of them. If you never played a Borderlands game before and your wondering what it's all about then let me give ya an idea. Borderlands is a cell shaded colorful over the top fast and frantic rpg fps. Yup you herd me. An rpg fps and first of it's kind. This game has so much guns so much loot it's like Diablo if Diablo fused with Doom and a Duke Nukem. You get to pick from a cast of crazy characters each with unique and interesting abilities for you to unlock and level up. This game is the perfect couch coop or online multiplayer game with friends. You can spend tons of hours exploring, looting, killing bosses, doing side quests, or just playing through the story. There truly amazing games and this set has 2 of them in it with all the dlc released for both baked into the disc. But that is where we come to a problem. This set is incomplete! There are only 2 out of 3 of the games here. Borderlands 1 is missing!!! Idk why they decided to skip on the first game of the series and just port over the 2nd and the pre-sequel but they did. The first game has not aged the best and probly the most hardest out of the 3 but it is important to the overall story. By not having it is a missed oppurtunity for new players jumping in the series. They won't get to appreciate the orignal characters or the cameos, jokes, and throwbacks to the first game. I deducted 1 star for that. But that aside don't let it stop you from picking this game set up because you get so much bang for your buck that even without the first game you still getting one of the best coop multiplayer games on the market.

    When I was on the fence about whether or not to buy a PS4 and join the nextgen community, I looked at the currently library of games available (versus my robust Xbox 360 collection) and looked for a beacon of hope. Then, there was Destiny - the immersive, space-based, first person shooter with multiplayer support, rich storyline, drivable vehicles, collectible items and highly diverse and unique weapons. Your character could be dressed to impress, modified to look different ways, and most of all, you could pick your class in order to use special unique abilities to defeat foes. The promise of this was enough to make me buy a Destiny-themed PS4 Bundle and join the future. Then... I was severely disappointed. The gameplay wasn't anything new. The weapons weren't special or unique unless they were gamebreaking. The classes were muted and uneven. The equipment was even more broken and you were effectively forced into buying DLC. It was a terrible tragedy and I've tried to move on. Then I saw a friend playing Borderlands 2 and thought to myself, what is this? It's EVERYTHING I WAS PROMISED WITH DESTINY, and whats more? Its funny as hell! I looked into the game and saw unique missions, storylines, and rich, bold character development. Even the opening sequence to the game was more than enough to draw me in. I purchased it from Best Buy and have been enjoying it to a 6-star level ever since. This isn't a Destiny review, but it should have been. Borderlands has been out for YEARS and if Bungie/Activision had just straight-up copied Borderlands, it would have at least been the game they promised.

    Fantastic Collection for Borderlands

    Normally I would recommend the second game in a franchise as a good entry point for people wanting to see how good a franchise is, but Borderlands 1 barely contained any story, but if you have played it then you will really appreciate some of the touches that are within the Handsome Jack Collection. The game looks fantastic remastered on the Playstation 4 and if you want to see just how good the game can look then you really must own this set. I do wish that it came with the original Borderlands as well, but I still consider it a great value. What's great is that it is the definitive version of Borderlands 2 and Pre-Sequel (1.5) and they play wonderfully in this remaster, and they do come with all the DLC included so you will have lots of content that make it a true value for RPG and Shooter fans alike. I highly recommend it.

    Good remaster of two great Borderland games

    This collection includes Borderland 2 and Borderlands the Pre-Sequel. If you loved Borderlands, this is definitely a game you should be picked up if you skipped these games last generation. They are the same games, but with all the DLC included. You'll get a ton of hours of content, and it's especially great if you can play it with friends. Performance wise, the game runs natively at 1080p (except for cutscenes) with a mostly 60 fps. It's highly recommended that you download the latest patch since in the initial release the framerate doesn't stay at a consistent 60 fps. Graphics wise, the game is similar to how it runs on the PC at high settings. Unfortunately, PhysX isn't enabled on the PS4 version. If you want a more indepth look at the performance: http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/digitalfoundry-2015-borderlands-the-handsome-collection-face-off

    My wife and I loved these games on the old systems and we love them even more now as they are remastered for the current generation of consoles. We love to play couch coop via split screen (something a lot of games have seemed to have forgotten of late) and there's no better game to have fun with. Crazy characters, story, loot and like, a Bazillion guns, who wouldn't love that?! If you didn't play these on the old systems, you would be doing yourself a disservice by not buying this version and having a blast with it!! You will laugh at this very creative and original series as there is some really funny stuff in it. Oh and by the way, all of the DLC (downloadable content) they made for these two (yes I said two) complete games is included in the price. You can't go wrong with this one. Stop reading reviews and just go get this game!

    There was a limited amount of games in the early days of the ps4. Now that there are finally games coming out I found this game to be a must have for my ps4 library. The ps4 allows this game to shine like it did on my days of pc gaming. The new couch multi-player is a new added plus which allows me to play a game with others in my house. (something other game makers should think about for the future) Plus with my friends that I have been making on psn, the games really takes on a whole level of fun when you team up with people you know and can have chat enabled seamlessly. The only reason for the 1 star removal is because it is not a new game, and personally because they did not add the original borderlands content. If you played it before, it is as good as it was. It is hard not to call Borderlands with all the add-on content anything but a great game.

    Borderlands the Handsome Collection is a great compilation of 2 of the best Borderlands games in one package. The move to next generations systems definitely helped the games look better with their think stenciled art style. The game is extremely fun, doesn't require a huge learning curve, and is just challenging enough to keep you entertained for long periods of time. Exploration is fun, add a few friends into the mix and the game automatically adjusts the difficulty to ensure the party has enough going on to keep you challenged. This package also includes nearly every DLC that was released up to the launch, which is a pretty amazing collection of items given that individually it would have cost $100 or more. Go get it, enjoy it, for the price of 12.99 you CAN'T go wrong!

    This is a great game if you are into cartoony FPS. The new addition to port old characters from old versions of the game is great so you don't have to start over. You can even give your weapons from your old characters to the new ones you start for Borderlands 2. Lots of DLC in this game. for the Pre-sequel not as good as Borderlands 2 but it is a decent game to fill in the blanks between Part 1 and Part 2. Lots of various different guns. Some add power and others add elemental damage. Various different shields have different effects and same with grenade mods do various things to your grenades.

    The game is old, but it appeared in a great moment for the PS4. There aren't many local multiplayer games that can support 3 or more players in the same console, Borderlands did it very well by adding 4 local coop which makes the game better and enjoyable. Also, it comes with ALL the DLC's which are stunning and BIG, specially the Tiny Tina ... best DLC i've ever seen (very complete). That's not all, for the last gen they made the Pre-sequel game, now it's added in the handsome collection. The game is very fun, looting in here is much better than Destiny, there are many creative main missions and side quests, re playability is very good, every time you level up you encounter to new enemies, weapons, armor and lots of things. It's really hard to get bored in this game, seriously!

    a fantastic series. This is easily the most content per dollar that you can buy for the next gen systems. It's hilarious and addicting story makes it even more enjoyable. The game also has the most fulfilling loot system of any that I have played. To play through both stories and all dlc once would easily be over 100 hours. Add to that with a great new game plus mode and raid bosses to attempt with your friends and that can double the play time. The coop is fantastic for these as well. The only drawback to borderlands is the absence of a shared loot system. It encourages cooperation but that doesn't sink in for many folks so everyone ends up sprinting for loot instead of completing the objectives. This collection will scratch your shooter itch for at least six months!

    The original Borderlands was a classic, combining the elements of an RPG and a FPS with humor and a ridiculous amount of randomly-generated guns. This collection pairs the 2nd and 3rd entries in the series: Borderlands 2 and Borderlands: The PreSequel. Along with all of the corresponding downloadable content. Suffice to say, for the price point, and especially a Gamer's Club price point, this game comes with hours of fun violent wackiness. However, hop online with a few of your friends and the fun level goes from "Wow thats awesome" to "That was ridiculous, I can't believe that just happened, did you see that thing? Wait, don't leave me by myself... AAAAGGHGHHH" which is substantially more fun. If you like over-the-top action, humor, violence and fun, this game is for you.

    This is an open-world first person shooter set in a cel-shaded, futuristic, Mad Max-like world with dark comedy tones and tons of weapons to find. The game generates random weapons with their own stats (ice, fire, corrosive, explosive, etc.) and your character unlocks abilities as you play through experience points. You get The Pre-sequel and Borderlands 2 and every piece of add-on content, which is a very large amount of content. The add-on content alone could add 50+ hours of gameplay. With several different characters in both games to play as, each having unique skill trees and abilities, this game is made for replaying even after finishing the main story. Add in four player co-op via couch or online players, and you have yourself a bargain.

    I absolutely love the Borderlands games, they're so much fun! With a couple of different characters to choose from, you'll find something to fit your preferred fighting style. My personal favorite is the soldier with his turrets. My husband and I play this together all the time when we're bored. We've both beaten them multiple times, oddly enough it's one of the few games I never tire off. FYI, this is not a game for kids. Loads of cursing and violence, it's a great way to let off some steam! The graphics are in this great comic book style which I didn’t think would appeal to me, but it’s actually pretty great. The first Borderlands is still my favorite, but these other two are worth checking out!

    If you've played the first two Borderlands games and loved them, then you're probably still waiting for the third installment. Well, nobody knows when that will be released, but until then, consider buying The Handsome Collection. You get Borderlands 2 and The Pre-Sequel along with all the DLC. The icing on the cake for me was the much-smoother animation. I felt I became a much better player as a result. You can also transfer your old game save to this new edition, if you want. It's a great game for a great price.

    Let me get this off first, I absolutely love what gearbox has done with this franchise between stunning storytelling and character customization to a very arcadey game, I played Borderlands 2 way back when it first came out and beat it within a week. I never had the chance to play the DLC or The Pre-Sequel and now being able to play through both all on one disc including Borderlands 2 all in the upgraded PS4 tech? Count me in! Within the first hour of playing there is already more story than the entire game of Destiny. Loot system is excellent, driving cars can be clunky, and graphics are outstanding! Definitely worth your time and money if you're looking for a good game with great replay value!

    For those of you who aren't familiar with the series: If you like story I'd suggest buying and starting the first one (borderlands) instead but if you don't really care about story and just want and mindless shooter you can kinda zone out on then this is for you. Be warned the banter is kind of bawdy If you're familiar with the series: I've played the first two on pc, and enjoyed replaying the second and playing the third (pre-sequel) on the ps4. The story is pretty well done and the banter in the background is funny (as always) and it's borderlands... I don't think I need to say more (if you're familiar with the series)

    I've played well over 1000 hours of the Borderlands games on various platforms, and this version has been my favorite experience yet. You get everything in one neat package (well, except BL1 of course, which I believe deserves the remaster treatment but time will tell). The PC versions of these games may have a slight graphical edge if your hardware is up to snuff, but I've always been a console gamer at heart, and this collection rekindled my interest in the franchise after I'd become a bit burnt out from playing too much. Between this and the final episode of Tales... coming next week I think I'm good for a little while, but can't wait for the next installment!

    Borderlands two is the best in the series, so it is fitting, and nice, that it received this wonderful update. Nice visuals and runs at 60fps. The inclusion of every piece of DLC is wonderful and will keep you playing for hours. The port of Pre-Sequel leaves a lot to be desired. There are framerate dips and it just doesn't run as smooth as the second game. Additionally, it just isn't as good as the second game. It is shorter overall, and the missions don't have much variety. The inclusion of some annoying features (oxygen) also hurts the game, Great package overall, especially if you haven't played either game, and very much a value package. Highly recommended.
