Story & Themes
On a similar nearby planet known as Prometheus, a "Vault" was found prior to the events of the first game, which contained all sorts of valuable alien technology. Because alien ruins similar to the ones found on Prometheus were also found on Pandora, it is assumed that there is another Vault to be found there. And so, seeking their fortune, many "Vault Hunters" come to Pandora. In both games, the player characters are Vault Hunters, and in both games the plot is fairly straightforward. You and your friends follow clues to find the Vaults while shooting your way through any alien beasties or bandits that get in your way. In Borderlands you will wander the land, engaging in gun battles with bandits, fighting off alien monstronsities, and perhaps more importantly, gathering ever more shiny loot. This is funnest when you're playing with at least one other person; the game even has different classes with their own specialties and abilities which interact in useful ways.
The Borderlands 2 story is a wild science fiction ride, with trains, a 13-year-old bomber, cyborgs, and spaceships.
There are four playable characters and two additional downloadable characters. Whichever character you choose, you'll traverse Borderlands' open world and blast baddies to collect an arsenal of fancier and fancier guns. It's not the most sophisticated game ever made, but it works for partially switching you brain off and just playing with a couple of friends for an hour or six.
