Borderlands 2 Review (Apple Appstore Version)

This game is one of my favorite games of all time. I can’t think of another game that made me feel like an action hero more than this game. The graphics are really good. Even from 2012, this game still looks great. The gameplay is complex and fun and the story had me hooked from beginning to end. The guns, the grenades, and the items, oh my God (Hehehe)! I never played a shooter with so many guns, grenades, and items. This game is filled to the brim with content. However, there is a huge issue with the Apple Appstore version of the game. Unfortunatly, for anyone who got the Appstore version instead of the Steam version, there is no public matchmaking. If they could add an update that adds public matching to play with other people, even with people playing the game on Steam, that would be awesome. As it is, this is a awesome game that I would recommend to anyone. Just get the Steam version if you want to do public matches.

Love it!

The game is amazing! It runs great and hasn’t crashed once in the 7+ hour I’ve played. I don't use el capitan, though, so you may want to wait for an update judging by some of the reviews.
