This is a GEM! And I mean it! I've enjoyed the gameplay so far. Funny, action packed, violent, and very well developed. The people at 2K Studios are one of the only developers and producers that know how to make a game right, and this is one of the fruits of their great labor to produce it. And I'm not even finished with the main story! My friends keep wanting to make new characters...
Anyways, I love the dialogue between characters. Although your character never speaks, the conversations that take place are always dynamic. In some parts it will make you laugh, others will make you cry.
The action is very much in this game, as explosions and different guns and large battles will make you cry for a New-U station. The enemies are varied in strength, size, and speed. There's big guys, known as Bad***es, who will make you cry for your mama, unless you know how to protect yourself.
Which leads me to my next point: Guns. The guns are many in this game, and really do depend on how you like your gameplay. Do you enjoy long range combat, picking off Psychos on top of a building? Grab a sniper rifle? Enjoy getting up close into the bloodshed and havoc? Grab a shotgun or rocket launcher! Mid range? Assault rifles and pistols! And not only are there the 7+ gun types, there's also rarity and very diverse gun power, accuracy, stability, etc. There's different elemental abilities on guns, such as fire, shock, and corrosive powers, and the names are rather funny. (Ex. Reddy Smgg: Actual Spelling.)
The world is big, sidequests are many, and characters plentiful. With the world as big as Pandora, the game could probably never get boring. Frustrating maybe, but never boring. The sidequests keep on coming as you progress throughout the story, and I highly recommend grabbing a few before a big boss battle, for which a few extra levels will help dramatically. The characters are fun people, even the bad guy, Handsome Jack, who names a horse Butt Stallion and says that his pretzels suck while talking casually to the player that will eventually be his downfall.
This game is a fantastic game filled with gears, tears, and weapons. I hope you enjoyed my review. See ya guys in Pandora.
