by EvilMonkeyMan THE BEST GAME EVER ALONG WITH SKYRIM!!!!
This is definitely my favorite game which is tied with Skyrim because it is so fun and funny and overall a really great game. I would get the game of the year edition instead of the regular one because you get the add on packs which give you a whole lot of more game story and they just add more awesomeness.

This game is so amazing and it is a perfect game for those hardcore gamers out there! This game was worth the 17.99, no doubt. I bought this used and I still go all the DLC, plus the Duke Nukem Forever first access pass. Get off your butt and get this game now so you can sit on your butt and play it!
Rated 10 out of 10 by ChuckL This game is awesome!
This game is an RPG and FPS. So it is a first person shooter but has elements of your character that you can upgrade and make better over time. The game has very unique graphics. It takes awhile to get used to the comic style graphics but they look great and the game can consume many hours of your time. Their are 4 basic classes that each have different abilities and perks. If you play with your friends you should each choose a different class because they work well together and give unique aid to a group. In the game you do missions and turn them in for xp or money. But the fun of the game is the characters and killing different creatures. The addons are amazing and everything is so funny and enjoyable while playing. I have played a lot of games in my life and this one is very unique and definitely one of my favorites! My friend and I still play together on occasion over a year after we beat it. Recommended for hardcore and casual gamers. Just don't get too overwhelmed looking at all the hundreds of guns in the game. Have fun killing things and listening the awesome characters and claptraps.
Rated 10 out of 10 by OldSkoolGGamer Still my favorite game
This game is an awesome co-op game...It is still alot of fun solo, but when you play co-op with your friend(s) through the whole game it is a ton of fun. The graphics work great for this game, yes they look like a comic book sort of, but like I said they are stunning. There is alot of bright colors and everything is so smooth looking. This game is a FPS RPG you can choose your class with different abilities and everyone specializes in different weapons. There are four classes in all and you can rank up and improve their skills. The weapon variations are endless you will never acquire every gun in this game, and every play-through you will find new ones. This game works very well there isn't any bugs and the controls are on point. I beat this game on PS3, twice on 360 and picked the game of the year one up today to beat the game again with all the ad-ons. This game is worth every penny and you will get alot of play out of it. It never gets old pulling off head shots with the sniper, getting alot of loot and unique weapons and class mods. I highly recommend this game to everyone. Remember "If it took more than one shot you weren't using a Jacobs."

A sci-fi action RPG from acclaimed developer Gearbox, Borderlands combines the best in first-person action with player customization and vehicular combat for incredible layers of gameplay depth. The game features a groundbreaking content generation system allowing for near-endless variety in missions, environments, enemies, weapons, item drops and character customization. Borderlands allows for multiple players to share the same game experience simultaneously online in co-op gameplay. Players can freely join or leave each other's games at anytime, or choose to play in the full single-player mode. The game also boasts lifelike character animations, impressive real-time physics, and customizable vehicles.
This game is simply amazing! With all of the downloadable content there has never been a better time to buy this game!
Rated 10 out of 10 by nomorefanboys An original FPS and almost perfect
I want to give this game a 10 in every category . It may just be nit picking but the enemies at times are hard to see and the voice acting a little corny when the enemies are saying help me etc... Other than that this game is awesome better than any other FPS shooter hands down. It rolls comic book style graphics, RPG, FPS, sandbox, and driving all in to one. I did give it a 10 overall cause this is the best co op FPS and one of the all time best co op games out there. A game without Campaign co op is just half a game. This game and Halo are the best FPS shooters ever.After all this time 2K games set the standard for what sports games should be now they hare set the standard of what a FPS should be. I waited to long too play this game. Bottom line one of the best games ever created.
Rated 2 out of 10 by djdbo10000 Why does this game have high reviews?
Ok, i picked up boderlands game of the year edition yesterday and couldn't wait to play it. For the first few hours i was captivated by the gameplay, and then i noticed a crippling problem in the game. Every single character respawns if you barely leave their location. You end up having to kill entire areas of characters about 5 times each, and to me this is just a waste of time. Once i have conquered an area of the map the last thing i want to do is to have to go through and kill all the enemies that i just killed AGAIN! I do not know why this game was made this way and if it was not for this flaw it would be a great game. I just can't waste my precious gaming time clearing out areas of enemies over and over again. I would not recommend this game to anyone. Just get Fallout 3
Rated 9 out of 10 by Jureidini Old and Still More Fun than Most
This game has aged very well, and it shows now that part 2 is a month old that it had a great base to start from. Borderlands is everything described and more. This game brought a whole new spin on what a FPS could be and did it almost all perfectly. The only things not perfect: 1. The graphics style is very cool, but did have its flaws, not a problem though. 2. Sure gold ended up having no use, but who cares as we had everything else we needed. 3. If you played online, with latter DLC the mod capabilities meant most people just overpowered everything and it got too easy. Play with groups you know to avoid. Near perfect game while being truly original, pick this up and play through if you are getting part 2. If you are not getting part 2, whats wrong with you?!?!
Rated 10 out of 10 by ANONYMOUSasddsa Still blows me away.
When Borderlands was announced I already knew it would be a MUST have game. I loved the art style, the gameplay was solid and story was well-developed. The characters were witty, and not just the protagonist, but all the NPCs and enemies made the world have a sense of life about it. The music/sound in the game really engulfed you into the world of Pandora. I love the drop in, drop out co-op and the split-screen capabilities is something that needs to be on more modern games. There's nothing better than killing, looting and completing quest with your buddy along for the ride. Like I said before, Borderlands is a solid game with lovable characters, great gameplay, vast and colorful world and intense storyline. It's a must have for any fan of RPGs.
Rated 8 out of 10 by Kriya6 Beautiful, Fun, Not too Heavy...
I wouldn't compare Borderlands to Fallout 3- I guess, they have a similar look, but they are totally different kinds of games. Fallout is very involved, with a lot of choice whereas Borderlands is pretty straight-forward. I like that the enemies respawn when I leave the area- it's getting my level up, adding skill points, and they get easier to kill and keep dropping loot. I'm still only at level 11 (in my single player game) so maybe I'll get bored with it, but I don't think so. I really like the mix of shooter and RPG elements. And, it's cell shading which I just love as an artistic style. Now, if I could just find it in-store, so I could let the one that's being rented for $.99/day go back, I'd be all set :)
