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.

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.

As a sum of its parts, Borderlands 2 VR is a good and fun game even though it shows its age in the level design. Its VR implementation is impressive but not perfect. The lack of DLC content, co-op or AIM support may turn off players, especially given the game's high price point, but it's truly a solid and long VR experience that will keep you entertained for at least 30 hours. If you cannot wait for Borderlands 3 or have never played Borderlands 2, Borderlands 2 VR is perhaps the best excuse in a while to immerse yourself and return to vault-hunting on Pandora.

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.

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.

Borderlands 2 VR is a game that is nearly perfectly translated into virtual reality. It contains everything you want from your Borderlands 2 experience, plus a bit more to make you feel like you're a part of the game. Gearbox and 2K didn't simply offer up a small piece of the pie, they offered up the whole pie. Just remember, too much of a good thing can make you sick.

Like Skyrim's VR port, Borderlands 2 VR feels like a curio. It's a fun way to revisit a modern classic, but isn't the best way to actually play the game. As a VR title, it's excellent, but I'd argue if you're looking to get caught up before Borderlands 3, you'll find it more comfortable to do so in the Handsome Collection.

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.

Borderlands 2 is the latest classic that has been ported to PSVR, but what sacrifices were made to get there?

Borderlands 2 VR is a solid port to Virtual Reality, but almost completely without VR adjustments and highlights.
