Borderlands 2 is the highly anticipated sequel to the sleeper hit of
2009, Borderlands, developed by GearBox Software.
The original Borderlands initially flew under many people’s radar as
2009 was a year that saw the pending release of heavy hitters such as
Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, Left 4 Dead 2, Assassins Creed 2 and, Call
of Duty 2 (A-lot of “twos” that year).
There was also a game that was similar in setting, and to some degree
game play, that many wanted to get their hands on announced a year
prior. That game was called Rage. It didn’t help GearBox Software’s
cause that the developer of Rage was the same developer many accredit
for the birth of the modern first person shooter genre, ID Software
headed by John Carmack.
The fact that Rage showcased stunning visuals, and AI that was
intelligent enough not to just stand around, and just be bullet
sponges was enough to make many want the game in their hands as soon
as possible. But to be honest we at TechReaction.net, even though
joining the Rage bandwagon, did keep our eyes out for Borderlands as
the earlier trailers for Borderlands, and game demos caught our
attention. Take a look below to see why.
