This is a game that I can already see myself playing for a long time. Some love it, some hate it, but I certainly would call this a great game. Many people say it gets repetitive and boring fast, but I don't agree. After a long day of work it feels good to be able to pop some heads and get rid of your stress. In this game, unlike most other RPG games, I actually find myself ENJOYING grinding for levels. It's like many Valve games. The story isn't meant to be the strong point of the game, the gameplay is.
My god, when I first saw this game I didn't know what to think. Some people seemed to worship it, others seemed to hate because the graphics. Don't let this detour you. this game looks and plays great. the co-op is just wonderful, (reminiscent of left 4 dead.) Borderlands has no moral descisions, no touching family moments, your compulsion is solely toward loot. glorious loot. everytime you open a chest your heart starts to beat and you wonder whats inside... but that aside, Borderlands is simply marvelous. Definitely worth trying (and maybe keeping) this game deserves a 9.5
This game is far from perfect, but when you play it you will find it strangely addicting and fun. Its kind of like fallout 3 except it is more of an FPS. Its RPG elements consist of character stats and leveling and weapon, mods, and shield drops.
