Graphically "Borderlands 2" suffers from some texture loading issues, but it was only a minor distraction that didn't hamper the overall experience. The voice work is superb and really brings the zany characters of Pandora to life.
Gearbox Software hasn't merely created a perfect sequel in "Borderlands 2," it has created a gaming experience that's as close to perfect as you're likely to find. Play it alone or play it with some friends, but make sure to play "Borderlands 2." Games don't get much better than this.
