SHOOT JASON VOORHEES,HE IS EVERYWHERE.
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!
Its is a very good game and very fun spiltscreen and live.But the missions are the same every time through its the same thing not much other thing to do except side quest buy guns mess around (blow stuff up) sooo not much of a lasting appeal.But if you love playing co op this game is amazing 2 player splitcreen 4 players xbox live 4 classes skill trees vehicles many exlorable areas this game is amazing but i do criticize for being old after play through a few times so if u disagree i understand i wudnt know what u think so if u think i should think about some thing tell me. thx
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
Be prepared for the boss battles.
I'll admit, at first, I didn't like this game all that much, but once you've played for a while, it is a very fun and addictive game. The humor around every corner, is one thing that makes this game great, and almost makes you forget how much danger you are in throughout the entire game. In my opinion, I think it is most helpful(after unlocking all four weapon slots)to have an SMG, a revolver, a sniper rifle, and a combat rifle equipped at all times. One of the most frustrating parts of this game is that if you die while fighting a boss, the bosses health resets, but you respawn with the same amount of ammo and health kits you died with, but you can get over this issue, for the game is not unbeatable, in fact, the final boss at the vault is probably the easiest(depending on your weapons). You do, however, have to go through about 50 of the game's toughest minor enemies to get to it(I personally just ran past most of them). In conclusion, this is a wonderful game, and if you play it, stay stocked up on ammo and health kits, any way to gain health in that game is quite necessary.
When Borderlands came out it was the only game I wanted to play. I forgot about Modern Warfare 2 and got this game. Simply stunning! Actually this was, in my opinion, the best game of 2009, even though it came out later in the year. The storyline is a bit weird, but I like it. Getting to level 50 is a major challenge. It took me months to get to level 50, which is why this game is a major time killer too. It will get you hooked as soon as you have to kill bad guys. There are a lot of side missions in this game too. Again a major time killer. Playing with 4 players online is a blast too because then you will be fighting for the death with string and smarter AI. Oh yeah and you have a challenge section that shows you what challenges you need to do, but those are only a few side missions you can do in this game. Also, there are attributes like freezing people and putting people on fire and so on. This is totally a weird game that you may find stupid or ridiculous, but I like it for all that it is. Oh yeah aim for head!
Ambitious and Epic new IP
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!
Good Game but did not blow me away ether
I think this is a very good quality game do not get me wrong. However when it comes to rpg's I always compare the vast amount of time I invest in games like mass effect and dragonage. I loved the game it was clever and humorous and had a fable like feel a bit more mature but the graphics and humor seemed Fable like to me (which is good I have been a huge Fable fan for a long time). Sometimes a bit corny is wonderful as not everything needs to be so realistic like ME and DA in graphics and tone. The gameplay keeps you busy as well and the story was interesting and entertaining, however I would not say it was by any means one of epic proportion that would keep me coming back to play over and over again. It is a game that will be in my collection for a long time, however as far as lasting appeal I would put it behind any bioware title, assassins creed or Fable. Great game and fun overall a good buy.
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.
DONT GET TO ATTACHED TO IT
the game is great you start off in a wasteland and then you find out this place is much more its a full sandbox for your uses its a game where you get to loot walk around do quest kill creatures but its different the borderlands terrain eviroment and graphics are the most odd yet terrific experience you would ever had in any game but the down side is at some points in the game you feel lost and you start to wonder around but its ok you can find enemys and kill them at your joy and laughter also this game is a co-op joy if you got friends playing it then invite them because for a new player at lvl 1 there friends might have a higher level and then they can help you level up fast but this game has so many guns so much dlc you should get this game the best game of all time and i only got this for two days yeah and one more thing pre-order borderlands 2 -2012- coming soon
Do Yourself A Favor...
Get the Game Of The Year edition. It gives you all 4 DLC for the game. This is simply put one of the best games I've ever played. Controls are tight, the graphics are weird, but in a good way and the story is written well enough. The guns are the star of this show as they are randomly generated and can do all sorts of crazy stuff. Co-op takes the fun level over the top as you can team up with 3 other people and put holes in anything that dares to cross your path. This also makes everything you fight stronger, but the loot you come across will be all the better. One thing I would say is watch out for "Modders". They make absurdly powerful guns and shields that take the fun out of the game. Some also try to steal your weapons. They can enter your game and "Down" you before you even know what happened. So use caution when dealing with random peeps online. All in all, this is an amazing game that should be played by everyone! Happy Hunting.
