Much nicer looking than Borderlands 1. I think it will benefit greatly from having the art style from the start of development. The original game had a totally different art style until the last 6 months of development, when they modified some shaders and some textures to get it's final look.

Yeah, I remember when the visuals looked incredibly dull and interest for the game was at a real low point. Fair play to them for taking such a risk by drastically altering the visual style mid-development to give it more of a distint look.

You're definitely right though; the fact that they're sure of where they want to take this game right from the off will definitely benefit it.

Love the art style! Even more now that they came up with the idea of adding colors and more varied environments.
