  Genuinely Brilliant

| | See all ajt123's reviews (4)

This is such an addictive game. It never appealed to me at first, but honestly, it's the most fun you'll ever have on a console game.
Unlike many other FPS or RPG's, it never takes itself too seriously or tries too hard- which I find ruins many games. This shows in the cartoony graphics, downright absurd characters and frankly ridiculous weapons (which there are millions of).
The actual gameplay is very simple; you get to pick one of four characters, each with their own abilities and specialties. You follow the story, either in single player, or up to 4 player co-op, and it's surprisingly lengthy (especially with the 4 DLC's installed), leveling up your to 50 (or 61 with 'Secret Armory') along the way, in order to access the 'Vault'.
This leads me onto my only major problem with the story- the 'Vault'. All the way through the game, you are promised amazing loot and weapons from the 'Vault'. However, by the time you kill the last boss, you find that these 'amazing' weapons aren't usually as good as the one you threw away for the weapon you completed the game with.
The only other problems I can think of are very tiny, occasional glitches, which I think says a lot about Borderlands. So, if you haven't already played it, buy it, love it and wait for Borderlands 2.

i bought this after hearing a friend talk about it... and at first i was a little unsure of it as i struggled to get used to it... but after that little bit of persistence.. WOW.. i cant get enough of the game! its fun, challenging, funny at times and... great to play both single player and with friends! each character has a unique set of skills to unlock which come in a lot of use when your surrounded by enemies!

i would recomend getting this game simply caus its great! and so much fun and will keep you hooked for days! weeks! months even as the game is so long and great

This game is absolutely outstanding.Worth every penny.Plenty of game play,lasts for seemingly ever.Brilliant graphics(very bright...nearly went "game blind" due to the bright colours). One of the best games I've ever played.

Really good singleplayer, but with 3 friends, its amazing! Surprisingly long, didn't expect it too be, and the Dr.Ned dlc is AWESOME!

  Topnotch

This game is brilliant. There are plenty of weapons, loads of killing and it's not that easy. So there is plenty of mileage in it. Also fun to play on Xbox Live.

  Very good game...

This game is very different than any other game it has a wide range of weapons and enemies, if you have ever played fallout 3 or runescape this game may be very similar, i would have given this game 4/5 but the game can get a bit boring + repetative the longer you play but, as soon as you come off you will want to go straight back on :) Reccomended game

I bought this game after seeing an advert for it being on sale. This game is extremely fun and exiting, with the story mode keeping you enticed for hours. The cartoon graphics give it a really nice finish and makes it stand out from other games. If you liked fallout 3 or far cry, i think you will love this.

Bought this on a wim after reading some good reviews and i have to say it is superb, so playable its unreal. best to describe it would be Fallout 3 with C.O.D gameplay. The storyline is'nt the best but trust me its all about the gameplay....What r u waitin for?

Its a good game really long i have had it over a month and still havent finished it(partly because ive been playing modern warfare 2) the cartoon graphics is a great touch to the game..The maps are huge but luckily you get a tank which is awsome for drive-buys and running things over.what a great game
