"Alright, so Borderlands 2 has some ups and downs, but the bottom line is that the ups far outweigh the downs: an amazing story, diverse skill trees, memorable hilarious characters, and well-written dialogue make this game stand apart from its peers. Add in badass pulse-pounding combat and you've got a recipe for an amazing loot shooter. Yeah, the hit detection could use a little work, and I wouldn't mind some cooler death animations, and maybe a Clapjack courier function, but these are minor details; things to think about for Borderlands 3, because when you come right down to it, this franchise has found its stride, and definitely deserves a sequel, or a prequel, or whatever the guys over at Gearbox wanna do. You've got me hooked, and I wanna know what happens next time on Pandora. Borderlands 2 gets a 9/10 and I look forward to what comes next."
