I enjoyed gameplay for the most part, but the ending was horrible and i expected more brilliant guns. The sequel should be something to get as the idea they have here is spectacular.

Fun..but only for so long

The game is a fun unique experience although I am glad I didnt buy the game. Your sent from job to job which is fun at first. Jobs are unique to other games but eventually you realize your jobs become repetitive.

The graphics are cool and customizing your character is nice. Also the choices of guns, shields, and powers is pretty awesome but again...the repetition gets boring. I would still recommend playing this game especially if you have friends to play with!

Very Good

Awesome Gameplay: Storyline Could Be Better

Borderlands features the smooth gunplay and the HUGE variety of guns and gun types which has come to be expected of any game daring to enter the overcrowded world of FPSs. The constant feeling that the next chest could be the one that has that perfect gun in it is adds excitement to the game throughout. However, the storyline is anything but exciting and what could have been saved by a pitch perfect ending; falls amazingly flat with little to no resolution to the hours of gameplay that have been invested. The drop in/drop out coop gameplay is a thing of beauty and showing off your loot to friends keeps the game fresh. For a game that has so many ups, the atmosphere upon finishing the game leaves the player wanting more from the story. For a game that is less the the sum of its parts, Borderlands is worth attention because of what it does right. Coop. Gunplay. Loot.
