Rough and ready shoot and loot hilarity that works beautifully in VR, despite the absence of co-op and the original's generous DLC line-up.

The complete Borderlands 2 experience arrives to PSVR, which means it is a huge FPS with lots of RPG elements and an impressive weapon collection. Sadly, the adaptation is rough and sometimes it feels uncomfortable.

A great game awfully translated to VR due its bad control schemes.

Borderlands 2 was always a phenomenal game, but having the option to play through the entire VR game with plenty of customisation to help with motion sickness helps out a lot.

Borderlands 2 VR continues the trend of enjoyable but flawed ports of larger, traditionally designed games. Few additions make the cut to enhance the experience, but the simple fact of existing in virtual reality adds significantly to the overall gameplay.

There's clearly a lot of effort been invested into bringing Borderlands 2 to PSVR, and that's appreciated. The gameplay does feel dated these days – and the lack of DLC and co-op is a real shame – but there's still fun to be had with the loot-shootin' loop, and Pandora scales well to virtual reality. The PS Move control scheme is cumbersome but the game plays fine with a DualShock 4 in hand, and an array of comfort options mean that you can tailor the experience to your exact needs.

Borderlands 2 VR takes a beloved classic game and gives it new life in VR and does so in a way that doesn't feel gratuitous. With a level of user controls that should be standard for all VR games, Gearbox has taken great care to provide a unique experience for those prone to motion sickness as well as seasoned VR users. Despite lacking Aim controller support, DLC content, and co-op, Borderlands 2 VR is one of the most enjoyable shooters on the PSVR.

This porting fails to address many aspects that required VR-focused re-work. In additions, content cuts like the absence of co-op mode essentially make this version of Borderlands 2 sub-par to the original game.

In the end, the parts that work well, even the driving mechanic allows for a first-person view, all add to a very engaging VR experience.

Despite my desire to scream Borderlands 2 VR's praises from the mountaintop, objectively speaking, the overall package is a bit of a mixed bag. We already knew that the game was fun as hell, and that still remains true while the visor is on. However, odd control schemes, lack of core gameplay features from previous installments, and unfortunate legacy design decisions make this holistically feel like an inferior experience. If this is your first chance to explore Pandora, it's worth the journey, but if you're planning a return visit, you'd probably be better off firing up a previous version.
