Borderlands sends up to four co-op players to the harsh frontier planet Pandora in search of a mysterious Alien Vault legend. Featuring a unique First Person Roleplaying Shooter gameplay, you’ll customize your character as you explore and battle enemies in frantic FPS combat. And what would a Roleplaying Shooter be without loot? Borderlands has a groundbreaking content generation system that creates a near-endless variety of weapon and items to customize your character! Players can join and leave other players’ games at any time, or choose to face the challenges of Borderlands alone. All these features combine with a deep, rich fiction and a bold art style to create a breathtaking experience that challenges the conventions of modern shooters!

Comment: Fast, fun, and unapologetically crass, this is the best game I’ve played in a long time, and is truly deserving of the moniker β€œrole-playing shooter.”

Comment: Borderland is a combination from RPG and FPS game. The game is set on the planet Pandora and you need to search mysterious Alien Vault legend. You need to kill other different aliens with a lot of unique weapons. This game got a great graphic and sound effects and the gameplay is cool to. I rate this game with a note 8/10!

Comment: Borderlands is FPS game with RPG elements (character progression and loot drop). Borderlands takes place on the planet of Pandora, there are four classes available – Soldier, Berserker, Hunter and Siren. Each character can be tweaked through one of three skills trees. I rate this game 8/10

Comment: Incredibly fun game for coop. It brings together RPG and FPS so well. Comes with great FPS action that’s similar to TF2 with it’s unique classes and cartoony yet gruesome graphics. Lots of weapons to loot from (I think this game actually won a Guinness World Record for the number of different guns in the game). Questing and following the story is also a big part of the game so RPG fans will be happy. Only wish it were longer but it does have 3 playthroughs.

Comment: Extra game with comics graphics. I think we starts in some Post apocaliptic world where we must to fight for our live. We havent got anything besides one gun. We starts in base of abandits and here the game starts πŸ˜€ Great game play, super graphics and multiple choice of guns, shotguns, rifles, machine guns and many others just like rocket luncher πŸ˜€ I rate this game 9/10 πŸ˜€

Comment: The shooter genre needed this. Elements of role-playing games have been creeping in all over FPS games in the past few years, but in Borderlands it’s a wholesale hybridisation. Not, I should point out, in terms of choices, story and consequences – that remains with the likes of S.T.A.L.K.E.R. – but with loot, levels, stats, skills and fiddling about in your inventory to max out your character. Gearbox says it’s created a role-playing shooter, an RPS (which sounds strangely familiar to my ears), and that means you’ll be playing a shooter that feels a lot like, well, like an MMO.

Comment: I Love this game, I have this for ps3 and its really fun. Theres also a lot of guns and power ups too! But there is one down side. The idea of the game is basicaly to kill people and get exp. Then move through the story line. For me that takes a long time and sometimes gets boring just killing people.

Comment: I would agree that Deus Ex is better than Borderlands. Borderlans has the diablo loot vibe but lacks in the shooter department.

Comment: Fine, as an RPG, I’ll give it massive props. Getting loot is ridiculously addictive, and there’s enough content to keep you busy for days. But let’s remember that we’re voting for the best SHOOTER here, and that’s the part the Borderlands doesn’t get quite right.

Colision detection on snipers is dodgy at long range, even with the most accurate guns, and the game honestly feels too much like a Halo clone with iron-sights in terms of its shooting, with jumping around the enemy with a shotgun being the order of the day

While the sheer number of guns is awe-inspiring, the fact of the matter is that, after a while, all the different types feel the same. There’re a handful of fairly generic weapon frames, and every gun (even the uniques) is put into one of these before having a whole load of variables changed, from its stock and optics to its elemental damage. It just feels too formulaic, and as a result you can’t help but feel that, after firing maybe five guns of each type, that you’ve shot them all.

True, anything else that claims to be a true modern RPG-Shooter pales in comparison to Borderlands. I feel that Deus Ex was better, but it’s too outdated (and no, this isn’t nostalgia speaking; I played Deus Ex for the first time two weeks ago). But, frankly, there’re better shooters than Borderlands (Team Fortress 2, Left 4 Dead 2, Modern Warfare 2, Bad Company 2), and there’re better RPGs (Oblivion, Fallout 3, Dragon Age, Mass Effect, etc.), and that’s why I don’t think it deserves the top spot in either of the two categories. It’s damn good at both of the things it tries to do. It’s just nowhere near as good as the big boys in either league.

Comment: Borderlands is a really good game, and a really good shooter. Every other person here already knows that Borderlands is a great Fallout 3/Diablo-style looting RPG. But the shooter element is nicely done and implemented with the RPG element as well. You gradually get better, and more accurate guns as you progress. You start out thinking you’re barely scratching your enemies, and end up taking out an entire group of them in a few shots.

The huge variety of guns certainly helps this. The elemental damage feels very satisfying, and it’s even more satisfying to go through the levels, getting better and better, unlocking more guns and explosives and weapons, and thinking to yourself,”Man, I pwn now!”. Enemies are wide and varied as well, which is what you would expect from such a massive game.

While this game doesn’t have team-based FPS combat, the co-op combined with the massive amount of content makes this a very worthy FPS indeed.

Comment: Borderlands is the Diablo of shooters! BL is always about trying to find the best loot. IMO the game mechanics suffer compare to other games like MW2.

  1. Interesting fps game with RPG elements.Enjoyed playing it with my friends in Coop mode.
    Had most interest in upgrading my weapons.

    Septera did not rate this post.
  2. Fun BUT I wouldn’t recommend it for only 1 reason. You can’t kill enemies higher in level than you no matter what. Your damage would be to low. Once you level up, you magically begin dealing normal amounts of damage to higher level enemies. This forces you to do every mission for according to its level requirement and frankly, screw that… I don’t wanna feel like I am playing an RPG game, with freedom to do anything and go anywhere, when really, I need to do every single quest in a specific order…

  3. 5/5 – Great game, would recommend trying Borderlands 1 before playing Borderlands 2. There was a lot that was improved in Borderlands 2, it’s better getting a glimpse of Borderlands 1 to not miss out on sneak peaks.

  4. Recmmended for any fps fans, tho it has an rpg feel to it due to the leveling up required in order to play other maps might be a turnoff for those that wants to do everything whenever they feel like it. Coop is a great way, with players being able to come and go, might be a pro or con depending on players taste. 4/5

    Rueness did not rate this post.
  5. It’s an old open-world shooter from 2009; I feel like the game is a bit outdated now that it could use a remaster or a remake. For instance, I’m just not a huge fan of the graphics; the 3D with black outlines just looks so bad in my opinion. Not sure if the intent was to make the game look more comic-esque, but it looks terrible. Gameplay, on the otherhand is pretty fun, though I feel like later Borderlands games are far better than the original. But at its time, this game was kind of popular, and you wouldn’t have the Borderlands series, if the original Borderlands didn’t exist, and so for that, I’d rate the game a 4/5.
