Help please

I really liked this game it had a nice story and cool enemies well the thing is when i saw all docs to 1.99 i bought son of crawmerax to check it out (it was my first dlc) then i noticed i needed to update borderlands 2 to play it and so i did. I played the whole dlc and then continued my mission, i quoted the game and on the next day when i when to play it the game said “the application is damage delete it and re download it from purchases and so i did but i got and “error could not download borderlands 2” well it wasnt uncommon what happened to me was that when i downloaded the game the first time or i updated it it took the usual 10 hours and if my computer sleeped during that time it would say “error could not download blah blah blah” so i had to be active in the computer while it downloaded but now i put it to download and it instantly looks like it downloaded everything but then it says borderlands 2 was unable to download etc. so now i cant play the game for that update so instead i bought the first game which was on discount and so i keep trying to download but it won’t please help


P.S. except for the download thingy it was extremely good game :D

Buy from Steam NOT App Store!

This game is a serious load of pure guilty fun! Problem is, the App Store version does not let you use SHIFT codes, nor play multiplayer with anyone but other App Store players… I have checked… There are not many! This game is WAY better in multiplayer and Steam has WAY more players of this game. The worst part is… They should plaster these facts all over the App Store page, it should be the first thing you see! I had to go and spend $50 and get the Steam version just to play with other players… Then I found out what SHIFT codes are!!! I am actually MAD at Apple & Aspyr for giving us such a gimped version of a great game!
On the game itself? It is one hell of a fun FPS/RPG and one of the select few games I keep in my rotation of play! Get it from Steam and maybe we can duel online ;)

The usual

This is one of those hybrid FPS/RPG games. It’s not a true turn-based game, but there are sufficient pauses to change weapons. The AI is OK, if a bit predictable. The bosses are, of course, ridiculous. Graphics are decent, the cartoon-ish style is fine for the game. The music is iffy. There’s a ton of loot and plenty of opportunity to make money. You are also heavily penalized for dying. Overall, I would buy it again. By comparison, when playing a COD game there are a lot of times when you reach a point in the game where you really are impressed with a scene or view or sequence, that doesn’t happen with this game.

I haven’t had any technical issues, but I haven’t purchased any DLC or used the online play features.
