Rated 10 out of 10 by RadiantArtist Perfect for the non-average shooter fan.
This game is magnificent. It pleases you with it's unique and very well done art style, it has an interesting soundtrack that fist the game and gameplay that will blow your skull off as many times as you will blow off a bandit's head. Also, it's got a good dosage of humor. The controls are spot on, mainly because it uses Call of Duty's control scheme (much different if you use a computer though). The story works but could be better. The game has some of the best co-op I've ever seen, the console version has splitscreen but PS3's online isn't the best and Xbox live fees suck, PC is the way to go if you got a good enough computer. The game is about GUNS, lots and lots of guns. You will get sniper rifles that will shoot lightning bolts and SMGs that will fire poison covered rounds. Interesting fact; there is 17,750,000+ gun combinations , differing clip sizes, accuracy ratings, damage count, elements, fire rates, and scopes....Wow, that's a lot. If you have even the smallest thought of getting this game do yourself a favor and do so. Also, enemies take for than five shots like in Call of Duty, remember that.
Rated 8 out of 10 by lucid nice blend of gameplay
Ok so first thing you should know is the dlc does not come on disc. You get a voucher with a website(gearbox software store site) on it and from there you have to download all the add on packs 1 at a time. Its a good 5 gigs worth so it may take you awhile. Gameplay is fun, its def. not the most advance fps but its worthy. rpg system is basic. lvl to get more health and strength plus skill point. gameplay is also pretty challenging and more so online, in online all creatures and bandits become a higher lvl the more people in a game. voice chat works fine. although its only co-op, you can duel other players in game. graphics are nice, game runs smooth, no probs with win 7.
Rated 10 out of 10 by CptCrotchKicker Best Game Ever
This game is amazing. An RPS like ive never played. Has very interesting guns lots of game play value because of two play throughs, 4 player co-op, and 4 different characters. No gun is has exactly the same stats without modding or if you do consider yourself lucky. (especialy if its a good one!) The game is great, the gameplay is great, this game is OVERALL Amazing. If you see this in stores and its the game of the year addition, don't hesitate to buy it, you will regret it.
Rated 10 out of 10 by Shadowo1f Don't listen to haters; buy this game!
I think I should get this out of the way first: I bought this game off the OnLive service. However, it's the same game, so I figured I'd rate it here. Now, my area has a severe CoD fanboy infestation: Putting down other games, etc. DON'T LISTEN TO THEM! This game is amazing, great voice acting, writing, intersting art style, 87 bajillion guns, and it has 4 Player Co-op. Plus, with the GOTY Edition, you save about $40 on DLC. Long story short, BUY THIS GAME!
