Building on the original Borderlands, this post-apocalyptic shooty action-RPG sequel features four new Vault Hunters, a huge new section of the planet Pandora to explore, and probably a gazillion more guns to shoot at bad guys' hollering faces, while retaining everything we loved about the first game. The demented robot Claptrap is just as annoying, Gearbox's in-jokey sense of humour is intact (and more pervasive than ever), and co-op is still an absolute blast.

As with its predecessor, Borderlands 2's been supported by a handful of compelling expansions, ranging from an extra character class - Gaige the Mechromancer, who fights beside her loyal pal robot - to additional chunks of land and missions, featuring yet more memorably... enthusiastic characters.

An even more satisfying and tactically interesting shooter, with great missions and excitingly random guns.
