When Borderlands first released, it was a rather novel and well received idea. The first person shooter RPG gameplay worked well and with the co-op it became an instant success amongst gaming communities. If this were a review for that original release I would be giving it 5 stars, however it is not and I am not. The post-release support for Borderlands was dogged with the release of poor DLC expansions, being a popular title they sold well however and at premium prices. And that was all wrong. They dragged out the gameplay of Borderlands in directions that it really should not have been stretched and like too little butter over too much bread the result was not a tasty morsel. I would recommend to anybody looking to buy the game to get the GOTY edition regardless, a few pounds is nothing for the content and assurance that one can play with any friend with whatever content they have, I cannot say I am happy about it existing though.

Great FPS

5

Brilliant FPS well worth having ,all DLCs with it, you will get addicted to Borderlands, ask for the price you can't go wrong because alone the DLCs included would cost over £25 not including the game, even though the graphics are different to most games of this type you will soon get used to them after a while of playing. My personal favourite part of the game is the random weapons generator which gives you thousands of different weapons throughout your game world. I wouldn't personally compare it that much to Fallout as it has a different style to the game, but having spent over a 100 hours playing Fallout 3 and over 50 hours playing Borderlands they are similar but not close enough to say if you like one you will like the other.

Perfect FPS/RPG mix

5

Borderlands retains the best elements of Fallout 3, leveling, skills, open RPG environment, and the first person shooter behavior and ridiculous weapons variety of Modern Warfare, all wrapped up in an orignal and creative style. The opportunities for developing a unique character based on the choices you make in the game are nearly infinite. I love this game, a must buy!

This is a very good game, and i recomend it to all, though i recomend you buy it elsewhere if you want it inside of the month. Its a good grinder, lots of fun with comedic and tons of replay value.

Brilliant shooter

5

Probably one of the best FPS around though maybe not the absolute best but who cares. Its definately worth it as the Game of the Year range shows with loads of add on's and with its multiple playthrough option its a keeper. I haven't tried the co-op but that looks mad as well so for those that are into online multiplayer you should check this out as you may miss out on something spectacular.
