While it is very similar, it's totally refined. Pretty much everything is an improvement over the original in some way or other - except for the bloody texture pop-in, which is pretty severe on the weirdest stuff, like ammo boxes and such.

The AI is about four hundred times better than the original, for a start.

Yeah the shooting I'm finding very enjoyable, some enemies actually have attack patterns in this and along with better weapons/better feeling weapons it's just overall better. It's not going to convert anyone who doesn't like the original but it's a few updates to the formula which make a difference. I'm also enjoying the fact that you are actually getting more good loot consistently. In the original I found that you could get a few weapons around level 12 - 13 and you could use them for the rest of the game and not find anything significantly better. Sure there's always improvements you can make and I'm sure they will for Borderlands 3 (if they make it which I'm pretty certain they will) but some good updates to the formula in this and there's been some nice variety so far.

I also have to mention how mental the Physx is. It's just eye candy but it's hilarious the amount of debris and things that go flying when killing people :lol:

Have you picked up a rocket launcher yet? I always keep one in my inventory just to fire some at boss characters. They do insane damage. With Flynt, I just kept my distance and shot him to death with AR/Pistols and Sniper. Headshots do substantially more damage too.

I'm fucking loving the shit out of this game. The shooting, looting, voice acting, driving, script, backgrounds, details, inventory management, references, everything.

I've already had a few "Halo/Battlefield moments" too, like having the smoking wreckage of an exploded Buzzard almost land on top of us, or managing to reach and rescue two floored teammates at the last second while outnumbered.

It really is just a wonderful game. Hit level 15 today, been soloing. The missions have opened up massively, from the epic, tough battles, to the humourous little side quests. My level 8 AR is still destroying guys left and right, got a beautiful quick shooting fire SMG, and a brutal six round rocket launcher, with a nice explosion pistol and basic shotgun as back up.

Been entering guys games on my friends list, dropping spare, awesome weapons off, then exiting. Its good to be nice :D

Man this is just such a mental fast paced crazy game. My half drunk brain is struggling to cope.

It's crushingly hectic at times. There was a moment where me and my co-op buddy (who is sat opposite me his on the dining room table, haha) both starting wailing incoherently as more and more enemies piled into a desperate situation. According to his missus we sounded like a maternity ward.

Absolutely loving this, had three laughter fits due to certain things and currently rocking a decentish pistol, but it has a scope, fires almost as fasdt as a slow assault rifle, has a magazine size of 1, but is an Infinte Repeater so infinitely repeats the one bullet in the magazine with no reloading needed. :)

My latest find is a torgue shotgun which deals almost 100 damage per pellet. It's bloody huge and feels so damn satisfying when you pull the trigger and level one of those big nomad guys in one shot.

Did I also mention that the shells dole out explosive damage, too?

Only drawback to it is that its magazine falls under the minimum size for my gunzerker's money shot skill to work with it, where the extra damage would tie in really nicely with the no kill like overkill skill further on down the down the line, synergised with the damage bonus for gunzerking with dual shotguns, and oh god, just think of all the numbers flying out of everything whenever I shoot this game is wonderful and I am falling in love with it more and more :wub:

Loving the refined shootin and the lootin! Favourite gun manufacturer of choice so far is Malawan and my neon exploding pistol of death coupled with my electro shield for when things get up close and personal. Really enjoying this and finding it much more polished experience than the first one which just felt more of a slog.
