Overall, the art, narration and characters are really memorable. Considering I'm not much of an FPS fan (I haven't played BL1, note that), the number of hours I've put into this game is actually something I didn't plan out or expect.
First to run through was pretty fun, and somewhere halfway around the second one (if not for the DLCs), the game start to drag a little bit on solo. I particularly liked how skills can be conveniently reset anytime along side with the large variety of weapons (gun porn~!). Trying out different builds made the game really interesting to play. I also like how some quests have quirky and funny storylines.
If you're playing with friends, it's a great game to play! At this point in time, I don't think I'll be picking up BL2 again if I weren't playing with someone else. At higher levels, raid bosses get to be more frustrating than challenging, and the cycle of running through the same thing - griding and trying to score good loot just wears me out.
I picked this game up on sale and bought it with friends, so the experience of laughing at Claptrap cursing stairs was really awesome. I would definitely say it's at least worth the money and worth playing.
