Not so much looking for is the game good, I already understand that the game is good and I'm sure there are countless threads where this is discussed. Are there any folks who had issues with the first game or didn't even finish the first game and found them fixed in 2?
I've made two serious attempts at Borderlands. Both times I petered out about 3/4 of the way through but what I did play I enjoyed quite a bit. Just lost interest and got bored to hell of it at about the same point. Loved the combat and the loot but there was so much to do and after awhile it got overwhelming and most of it was meaningless. The game felt like it was just padded out with too much fluff. And often times that fluff seemed necessary as I was constantly on the hunt for better gear after the second hub town. It was never a issue of not having fun it was an issue of just being done with the game before the game was done. Pacing both in the game and the way it rolled out the loot just fell apart for me.
Is the second game for lack of a better term more compelling? The first game dragged on longer then my attention span could give it and tested my patience with a mountain of quests. But I'm not sure if BL2 actually fixes the issue of pacing and giving me a good reason to finish. Don't know if I should bite now while the game is still hot and new or wait till it drops in price when everyones already moved on.
Also hows the PS3 version? Probably going to have to get that to play with friends even though I can't stand shooters on there. I remember hearing the online being absolutely broken in the first game on PS3.
