Review by asher1513

A must buy for any Mac/PC gamer - I bought this game a couple of weeks ago and i am extremely pleased with my purchased. I am running this application on a 2013 macbook pro with a 2.5 GHz Inetl Core i5 processer and 4GB of RAM and it runs FLAWLESSLY. Even after consecutive hours of gameplay, there is no lag and the graphics are incredible. The application downloaded in about an hour and a half over a standard comcast internet connection. The story is extremely addictive and multiplayer is also a very fun addition. I am an experienced mac gamer and i have many other titles on my mac such as Dead Rising 2, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, Black Ops 2 and many others and this game is one of my favorites. I use a PS3 Dualshock controller as well as an Xbox 360 controller and they work beautifully with this game, you don’t even need an external app to use the controllers with the game. Pros: Easy to play PS3 and Xbox 360 controllres both work with game No lag, even with 4GB RAM, even after 3+ hours of gameplay addictive story line Cons: A little pricy Because this game is so addicting, I lost a significant amount of sleep becuase i stayed up all night playing for several days straight

Review by landstuhl

Dozens of bug fixes? How about a launch crashing bug - Won’t even start - 11/13: Found a workaround. 1. Open the GameCenter app. 2. Sign out completely. 3. Launch Borderlands 2 4. Ignore the GameCenter opt-ins and play single player. Thats the only mode that works right now. UGH! New update, now it crashes right after it loads. Takes 75 seconds to start and then crash. Very disappointing.

Review by Mika20162001

Does not install - I have a lot of good memories playing this game when it first came, so as you can imagine, I was very excited to see that I can purchase on mac. However, after purchasing and letting it download, it won't fully install. Its says 34/34 gigs installed, but the bar won't completely fill and it won't actually finish the process. I am very dissapointed as I spent 20 dollars on this came, just for it to be a let down. Do not download this game!

Review by Corona'd Out

Infinite Saving Bug *GameBreaking* - I can get past first fight with Knuckedragger or whatever within first 10 minutes of the game but when moving to the next area the game get stuck in a save loop and won't allow me to travel to the next area. I emailed Aspyre Media about 2 weeks ago and haven't heard anything.
