Bloodthirsty bandits. Vicious monsters. Tons of loot. Lock, load and face the madness. Gearbox Software's acclaimed sci-fi hit comes to the Mac, complete with all four Add-On packs. Borderlands Game of the Year Edition is a unique hybrid of first person shooter and role-playing game with a super sharp visual style and a compelling four player co-op mode.
Planet Pandora is a sparsely populated wasteland where the rule of law gets rewritten daily in the smoke of the last gun battle. Civilization consists of small outposts on the fringe of human influence, in an area called the Borderlands. Pandora's one claim to fame is a mythical Vault supposedly packed with fantastic riches.
Fortune hunters, corrupt corporate mercenaries and lowlife hoodlums roam the landscape, searching under every grain of sand for the treasure. Since most intelligent life on Pandora has the occupation of Vault Hunter, society has gone to hell – making the outposts and outback areas more than just a little dangerous.
Unique hybrid role playing shooter that combines frantic first-person shooting action with accessible role-playing character progression. Super sharp graphics style gives Borderlands a unique comic book come-to-life look. Co-op Frenzy – drop in and out with up to 4 player co-operative for a maniacal multiplayer experience.
Millions of randomly generated guns! Choose your weapon from rocket-launching shotguns, enemy-torching revolvers, and tons more.

Borderlands has tried to combine a FPS game with an RPG game which actually was hugely successful. Borderlands has standards for an RPG game like level-up, collecting items and doing missions, and at the same time a fast shooter game. Of the 160 missions included in the game, 30 of them are story-telling, and the rest are Side Quest missions, and Side Quests are designed in such a way that you like to finish them all and even get them back for You have EXP. Borderlands is a great game don't even think about miss this one!
This game can be summed up briefly: an exceptionally entertaining shooting with a silly plot. It provides so much fun that I've spent almost 100 hours with this game, and I'll probably come back to it again. And to explain a bit more: Borderlands is a post-apocalyptic shooter. It would seem that the theme is dull and boring, but Borderlands breaks out of the frame with a unique approach to the subject - it does not take on a serious and severe world. Everything here is comic, a bit exaggerated and so much fun!
I would often see amazing reviews of this game and many people stating it as a must play, but i disagree. Sure it was fun to slaughter enemies, and yes there is a lot of gun variety, but that's pretty much all that this game has going for it. The cell-shaded graphics are nice, but thats only if you enjoy that art style. The combat was similar to most other FPS games, but felt very grindy as the quests are just like any generic MMO. They were basically "Go to this area and kill this many enemies, then come back to me" over and over again with a few bosses in between. One plus is that it was much better with friends, but that is to be expected of any co-op game, and is not something that should be relied on.
