I thoroughly enjoyed the first one but I must say, it better be more bug-free. I don't see how half of those could slip past them. They also need to remake the co-op system, if you've ever played not as host I'm sure you know what I'm talking about.

I played the first one for some time (a few days, briefly couple of hours everyday). And it bored me to death because it seemed like there's no end to it. Everything just gets better and better... weapons, your level, enemies' levels.. So it seemed like there's just no end to it. It's just a leveling up game. And little creatures kept bugging me everytime i wander around. I had to kill each one of the million of bloody pests just to walk around peacefully. So i gave up on it.

I think now i understand why Todd Howard invented "level scaling" in Oblivion and Fallout 3.

They certainly didn't hide the fact that this game was about turning your character into a complete badass through leveling, skills, and a little grind to get the best guns. That sounds like it was just a bad purchase decision.

They better have a much more enjoyable ending this time around. The ending in the first one thoroughly disappointed me and consequently I've only played it once.

It's first a foremost a coop game (a thoroughly enjoyable one at that). Playing it single player is akin to playing Battlefield with bots.

Yes! Loved the game, except for the 2 DLC. I hope they improve the multiplayer experience with dedicated servers. I rarely find servers in which I have a decent ping.

You're supposed to play it with your friends. Dedicated servers are out of the question.
