Fun, exciting, adventurous but....a bit overrated

Borderlands has become a popular game among FPS RPG fans but it wasn't what I expected everyone was saying it was. The game definitely holds onto its RPG standards with damage counters and skill trees but I felt really limited due to slow leveling and not enough enemies to grind in one zone before I moved onto a higher level zone. It kind of bored me out and the quests weren't as exciting since most of them were go collect this or go activate this beacon. Boss fights were fun though as it actually put a challenge in the game. But other than that, I wouldn't say this game is for RPG fans. I would recommend this game to anyone who's looking for a good FPS game but not the combination of two. If you don't like grinding exp, then probably not the game for you.

Fine for co-op purpose.

When I first time saw Borderlands it was advertised as "Diablo as FPS game", or something like that. It was few years ago so I don't remember it well, but that was a reason for me to pick up this game. So when I did, at first I had great time. I didn't played it alone, so the fun was doubled. Finding new weapons with random stats and colors, getting new levels, skills, fighting harder and harder enemies - yup, for a time it seemed like FPS Diablo game. Well, the only thing is, this game is only fun when you are playing with friends. Playing alone this game would be so boring. It's one of these games where you just need someone to play with. After finishing this game for the first time I tried to play a bit alone and I was bored. As for the game, it's not like it's amazing, one in a kind etc. It's just a fun co-op title, that you will enjoy. You might want to check the DLCs, because they were more fun then main game.

Loads and loads of weapons.

Borderlands is definitely one of my favorite games of all time. The plot might not be excellent, but it still is entertaining. (Not going into much detail, since it's easy to spoil.) I've read somewhere, that it's basically a "Elder Scrolls/Diablo/Fallout" mashup, and it kind of feels that way. The random drop system works kind of like Diablo's and one of the game's most appealing features is the weapons that can be dropped. There are literally millions of possible weapons. There are also different kinds of weapons, with your character getting better with them as you use them. Gameplay-wise, it feels like an FPS/RPG hybrid, that's why some people compare it to The Elder Scrolls. There are four playable characters, each one has different passive skillsets, and an active skill. There are different skilltrees, which allow players to try different builds out. It's a challenging game, and it's also long (took me 30 hours to beat, 45 hours with DLCs. The soundtrack is kind of good, to be honest.

I picked up Borderlands ages ago not knowing a thing about it except that it had lots of guns. I heard a rumor that there were over 60 guns! They were right but there are waaaaaay more than 60. This game takes you to Pandora, while an unoriginal name, is a planet full of wonder, danger, and treasure. You choose from 4 characters. Roland is the soldier who can deploy a turret to help you out. Mordecai is a master sniper and gunslinger who can throw his bird Bloodwing which ruins enemy's days. Lilith is the siren who can Phasewalk (go invisible). Lastly Brick is the beserker who can drop his gun and punch everything to oblivion. The story is to find the vault, but you aren't the only ones trying to get its treasure. It's a race! There are tons of missions and side missions plus dlc that you can buy to keep the fun going. I love this game.

A nice game, but overrated

bcf623 | June 11, 2014 | See all bcf623's reviews »

Borderlands, in all honesty, is just another RPG. I think what makes it special is the very large amount of weapons that are available in the game and also the bits of humor that can be found in it. Other that that, this game really isnt much different from somebody telling you to do something, you doing it, and then turning it in afterwards. Where this game really does shine is when playing co-op with three other friends. My problem with this is that a game should not rely on having friends with you to be enjoyable because nearly anything can be fun with a group of good friends.
