I had played through Borderlands 2 on two different platforms before this, but the off-the-wall dialogue and comedic flourishes still provoked plenty of hearty chuckles. That said, if you’ve played it before you’re not going to find anything substantially new here. The story arc, missions, and piles upon piles of loot have been ported as-is to PSVR. It’s unfortunate that none of the numerous DLC packs are included here, considering some of Borderlands 2’s best missions hail from its expansions and it would’ve given people who played the base game but not the expansions some “new” adventures to experience first in VR.
