Inspired by the Mad Max films, this is a great game ,the graphics are in the style of 2000AD , there are four characters to play a hunter ,a soldier ,a siren and 'Brick ' (as in,out house) I am playing the siren Lilth,in keeping with the theme, I have called her Maxine, when she shoots someone she quips "I'm good at this" or "does it hurt"? the weapons (which are almost endless) can have various elemental effects ,I just recently picked this up ,for something different to play ,it's a propper old school game ,right up my alley

Gotta say this is one of thoughs games i'll always go back and play,I can't think of a bad point. Got this game on christmas day back in 2009, and the graphics still seem good now, the story line is good, the creatures are cool, the guns are cool and the coolest little catch phrases you could ever exspect to hear of a little tin can like robot. You couldn't ask for more! pluse all the DLC that was brought out for this games was as equally as good; thus overall I think this is a game for all fps rpg kinda ppl, and in fact rpg fans in general.

  One of the best FPS on the 360

I brought this game after seeing the advert of shooting and killing to earn xp. Which appeals to me as I love shooters and RPGs. Being a FPS it does have some elements of an RPG to it as you can choose from 4 classes and distribute your skill points to certain powers to help you, such as super strength, speed or having a bird of prey kill for you. I personally chose the hunter, who specialises in snipers and found this game to be very addictive. The level up system is very good and the DLC is very fun. The best part of this game is being able to play 4 player co-op with your friends. I have played this game for many hours and even though the graphics are pixel shaded or cartooney, the freedom and customization of the weapons you get ( thousands ) makes the game amazing.

  Very good

Borderlands is a really fun game, it does take time getting used too, but there is so much you can do, and it is sooo addictive! Definately recommended, and once completed, the expansion packs (especially the secret armory of general knoxx) will add much more time than you think and stops you from getting bored

  Very good FPS game.

This game is very deep. There are loads of interesting characters and many many missions to do for each character. There are different things to do in abundance and this game rarely gets boring. The only negative I have to say about this game is that it can sometimes get a little repetetive, and some of the quest just involve walking somwhere, flicking a switch, then walking back. Sometimes missions are boring but on the whole this is a great game

  Just Don't do it

This game is such a let down, repetitive, very bad fps theirs a billion guns that only start getting good at about level 25, shooting is shaky and every enemy you face either runs at you or stands their shooting like a maniac. The maps are recycled through out, every town is the same with a few different points, their are no people walking around at all, not one and the ones you do see ignore you to their available or just give you a mission.
The ending is appalling, thats all that can be said, all through out the game it is talking about this legendary vault full of riches and treasure and it is just nothing like this at all.
Overall a badly written game with as far as i can see a story line written by a kid who loves to shoot everything, really the game isn't worth the ending in the slightest

  Overall a good game

Overall I felt that borderlands was an exciting and enjoyable game. At first, I felt I was just wandering through the missions, but then after a hour or two of gameplay I was thinking up strategy's and tactics for the missions. Although unless you want the game ruined through modded guns and unlimited sheilds I would not go online until you have finished with the main storyline.

  Largely Enjoyable, Slightly Repetitive Co-Op Shooter/RPG

Playing as a hybrid between an RPG and a First Person Shooter Borderlands, much like the Left 4 Dead games, only really comes to life when played on XBox Live with Friends.

If you've ever play an MMORPG such as World of Warcraft you will be familiar with the games structure. Missions are given out by computer controlled characters, once completed you return to that character to receive experience with which to level up your character as you see fit (improve the power of your weapons, increase the amount of life you have etc) and sometimes receive an extra reward. Unlike any MMORPG however the first person shooter element means that there is actually some level of skill to the combat, although you will not be able to defeat certain enemies until you reach the required level. In this respect the game is very helpful as it will always suggest a recommended level for each mission.

The game allows you to choose from four different classes, each with their own special abilities, as well as featuring a huge range of weapons with which to survive the wastelands. Your ability with each weapon type increases as you use them allowing each you to customise your character as you wish. The only criticism that can be levelled at the game is the lack of variety as the game progresses. Running in excess of twenty hours my interest did begin to wane before the final few missions.

If you are looking for a single-player FPS there are far better alternatives available, if on the other hand you are looking for a multiplayer experience with a far amount of depth then for under twenty quid Borderlands could be the game for you.
