I really loved playing this game co-op with my boyfriend, we spent a lot of time playing this game together. I don't think I would have played this in single player, I think my review would have been worse if I had played it alone.
There are a lot of things that I disliked more than I liked about this game. FIrst off, I did not like the story, a lot of people say that the missions don't seem to tell you WHY you need to do them, and it's true, for the mayority. I think it's just mainly for leveling up and adding extra content to the game which had really nothing to do with the story. Honestly I got lost with all the side missions, I kept forgetting what was happening. Lots of the side missions were also very repetitive, a lot of times I found myself wanting to stop playing. Honestly I would have liked that there were more story related missions to the point that you absolutely have to reach level 60 to finish the game in its entirety. And that's probably too much to ask.
I don't like that I would find that one awesome gun and use it for almost 10 levels, to the point that other types of weapons became more useful than that one I absolutely loved. It would take another 5 levels to find one of the same type that might be just as awesome, but that may be my personal opinion I guess.
I HIGHLY disliked that the bosses were REALLY easy.. most of them didn't even touch my shield, and I know, it was co-op, but even so I think it was way too easy to the point that random enemies that spawn as you explore the map seemed to be harder than a boss fight? I don't think that's right. I also noticed that the game become very easy after maybe level 20, maybe even before that.. a bit disappointing to be honest.
Honestly, I liked the fact that I could play this with someone else, otherwise I wouldn't have even touched it, even if I had bought it. I like the game mostly for its FPS more than anything, and the RPG style of the game when it comes to the skills. It's really fun to play co-op I can't deny that, I had fun playing it. I also liked the graphics. I don't know if I would recommend it to someone, maybe if they played with other people but for single player, I can't see myself recommending it to anyone.
I'll give it a thumps up for the co-op.
I can't wait to play BL2, since so many people say it's so much better.
