Borderlands is a fun shoot&loot game where there is no weapon alike. You start off with 4 characters Lilith a siren(they have the ability to make their tatoos glow and have special individual powers),Roland the soldier (he can drop an auto turret that rips up enemies), Mordecai the hunter(he can throw out an alien bird that hunts down enemies), and last but not least there's brick as the beserker( HE PUNCHES EVERYTHING).Once you pick your character you'll find your self on a strange planet this is pandora (it's full of aliens that love to shred you to bits).HAVE FUN!

by NeX1223 Great graphics/guns
The soundtrack was the best. When i first played this game i was a bit off bc it looked a bit cartoony. but as i kept playing i ignored it and really started enjoying myself. I never played a game like this b4 and it has its own feel to it, i am suprised how many weapons are there. There are thousands of these bad boys. The gameplay is so fun and i love the fact that its also an rpg. I definately recommend this for anyone who liked fallout 3

As a huge fan of cooperative games I can not wait for this title. Imagine, if you will, a cross between Halo and Fallout with Mad Max as the inspiration and three friends to experience it all along side you. What you have is an incredible gaming experience. The recent change to the art style has upset a lot of gamers but it seems to me that the reasoning behind the change could have been so that the development team did not have to compromise on their vision. The game is ambitious in it's scope and probably was not feasible with the original art style the further they got into development. It is more than likely that the online game play experience the development team wanted was not working as they had intended. So the developers decided, thankfully, that rather than sacrifice their original idea of an open world 4 player online cooperative game they would instead change the art style to provide for an optimal game play experience. Here's hoping anyway for this potential Game of the year!
Rated 0 out of 10 by xbox 360 gamer "z stingray z" This Game Rocks
Got it early yesterday, and played it for 8 hours, up to level 12 character level up. The graphics are cool. I didn't think I'd like them, but I do. The variety of weapons, upgrades and skills is very sweet. I chose the Sniper class and have now found a "Desert Sniper" which has a silencer, it rocks. There are different grenade packs, for instance sticky, anti personnel, rubber which bounces of objects until it hits an enemy to explode, multi pack which the grenade blows up, opening the package to explode more grenades ! After a few missions there is a ''bounty board'' to get more, and they vary in difficulty, even the tough ones, I've finished by myself since no one has it yet, can't wait to play other people. I give this game a 90 easily, only because I wish it had classic death match, team death match, CTF MP modes. Obviously I can't judge the MP yet, but previews just didn't seem appealing to me, but might, we'll see. I'd say this game is a cross between Half Life and your fav rpg style game.
Rated 10 out of 10 by DSWBeef By far the best rpg.
This game is fantastic. I have been following it since the beginning, and the art style and the story is awesome. I guess the official reviewers dotn have a brain cell. Cause thats all it takes to follow the story. ITs like Diablo theres alot of side quests and one giant quest chain. If you even listen to the plot you will be able to understand it. The ad on tv about the 87 bazillion guns is right well, maybe not a bazillion but the last count on the console command was 17.5 million. I have yet to find a duplicate and i rarely find a duplicate model. The 4 class are fantastic and the coop is the funnest coop i have ever played. Siting down with 1 friend or 3 online is amazing. The more people who stronger the enemies the better the loot! And the skill tree do mean something unliek how GT said. Choosing one is a very difficult choice depending on if its a single player or coop character. The siren and hunter are my faves. BUY IT. You will be able to replay it endlessly.
Rated 10 out of 10 by XBOX friendly Just Amazing
Borderlands is an amazing RPG and first person shooter! I would strongly recommend to get it. If you like Bioshock and Halo you will love this. This game is a combination of both and it is one of the best XBOX games I ever played. It revolutionizes the gaming industry.If you want this game but dont have a system for it GET ONE!!!!!!! It has an amazing variety of guns and monsters and the soldier is GREAT. This is better than any other game made. You will love the game bacause it is very fun and it is a good shooter. The shooting part of the game is very detailed and the guns have good sites and the sniper aren't as realistic as other games because it stays still and doesn't move around like call of duty and rainbow six vegas but it is still very good. The animation is great but still has some ifs like other games. The guns that have fire are amazing. When you shoot a bullet of a fire weapon the creatures start to burn and loose health and sometimes die with one shot. Overal the game is GREAT!!!!!!!!!!
Rated 10 out of 10 by thedudewiththecomputer Amazing. Just Amazing
Ok. I pre-ordered Borderlands a month in advance. I was super excited about a game that is this in-depth. If Final Fantasy and Fallout had a super-child, they would have to name it Borderlands. The level of customization, the millions and millions of weapon possibilities, the four-player online co-op... It all makes for one amazing game. I'm not real big on RPG titles (except Final Fantasy, of course), but I decided to give this game a shot. I thought maybe there is a game out there that can redeem the genre's reputation, and Borderlands did it. When I picked up the controller to play the game, it didn't get set back down for nine hours (I had to change batteries once). Yes, it is that addictive. The gameplay is a whole load of fun, with wave after wave of enemies waiting to claim you as a trophy. The character advancement is unparalleled. Amazingly responsive and nearly perfect controller layout. I recommend this game to anyone who is a fan of FPS and/or RPG games. It's more satisfying than any other.
Rated 8 out of 10 by TheRZA Just what you need to get you to November.
Borderlands is an all around great game. Graphics/sound/controls are all solid. It is a very vibrant game. I wouldn't go as far as saying that it is a RPG with a FPS finish, it plays more like a FPS with a RPG twist. The RPG aspect of it is pretty linier, get mission, go here, kill this, collect that and repeat. But the action, atmosphere and overall attitude of the game make up for it. Yeah there are a million weapons and items, but I find myself spending most of my time looking at every item I find and switching between my menus. The characters are great; you get to choose between 3 professions for each character with different skills depending on what you want to be. You also have the option of resetting you skill tree at any time..for a small price. All in all, this is a great game for FPS or RPG fans. It is perfect for getting you by untill November when COD:MW2, Dragon Age, Left 4 Dead and Assassins Creed 2 come out. I do see my self still playing this even when I get those titles. Props to Gearbox!
Rated 10 out of 10 by DragonMachine awesome to the max!
Borderlands is freakin sweet! simply put. you have to play it. it takes a bit of time to get into, but once your in, you'll never get out. its very addicting. the design is incredibility well made with an open environment for you and and up to 3 other friends to explore. the best part of borderlands is the weapons. there are a lot! so many that you'll be upset to get ride of one that you may have just gotten used to. the feeling of when you open a weapon container to reveal a shiny new gun, is just unbeatable. and with the help of so vehicles and an apocalyptic environmental feel, you will be playing borderlands for years to come. the story (so fare), isn't all impressive. its a mystery that i have not yet solved and it is a little confusing. its also not one that you will really care for. (in the beginning anyway). but with game play this good, its something that you'll have in the back of your mind while playing. pick up borderlands and you wont be disappointed.
