Borderlands is an original First Person Role Playing Shooter that combines the intuitive reward systems of action role playing games and the frantic-paced shooting combat of first person shooters. The game features a groundbreaking content generation system allowing for near-endless variety in weapons and item drops. Borderlands allows for four 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. These features, along with a rich and deep fiction that touches upon the mysteries buried beneath the surface of a danger-filled planet, combine to form a breakthrough experience that challenges the conventions of modern shooters.

I have played BL2 to DEATH..I would have moved on the BL1 but the menus & GUI/fonts/HUD seem soo ugly. shame as the rest seems like something I could have gotten into. even the tooltips for the loot look ugly compared to the lovely BL2 ones.

One of the worst games I've ever played. Boring, linear, repetitive and easy and killing alien dogs gets old fast, but I don't think the developers realized that. I also hate that there is pre-made classes for you to choose from.

the "content generation system" maybe broke ground in the 80s with Rogue. Don't pretend it's a new idea and wonderful for that. The real new idea here is rpgfps gameplay that's truly fps instead of overrelying on character statistics. Game is far too simple though.

I'll have to disagree, I've never had so much fun with a FPS game before, SERIOUSLY.

Playing it in Coop is 10x better than playing alone.

Even though that's a quite aggressive opinion, I have to agree.
The game itself is very repetitive and requires almost no strategy whatsoever.
Which makes things really boring overall.

@macacos2

may i ask one question?
what difficulty do you play on.
if you play on easy then yes it can be a little bit boring after the first playthrough

but if you have it on hard then it becomes much to strategy craving and requires you to actually use your mind a little bit.. that way the first playthrough is fun and the second playthrough is just insanely fun

Lowest Rated (2 agree) 3/10

Even though nobody is gonna read this, I've got to say that this is one of those games I'd recommend to all my enemies, mainly because it will bore them to death. The game is all about applying force until something or someone breaks. There is no strategy afterall, making all the quests rather bland and linear. And the game is also about completing quests. The soundtrack of desert loneliness is also incredibly boring. Even though it has a great set of graphics, it won't cover the fact that the game…
