Is it only a refined texture upgrade?

Few games have the style, character, snarky sense of humor and balls-to-the-wall outlandish craziness that Borderlands did.
To have a successful sequel, Gearbox needed to capitalized on every single aspect that made the original title great… which, in retrospect, was quite a lot of things.
I’m pleased to say that Borderlands 2 improves on everything that made the original great, while introducing a hefty amount of new features and gameplay upgrades.
At the core, though, it’s still the same game. Is it a true step up, or just a refined texture upgrade?
