Borderlands was quite an ambitious title, fusing the two genres of Role Playing with the First Person Shooter Genre – And it worked!
First things First – if your a diehard Role playing type gamer, Borderlands will seem very simple, as there isn't as many skills etc that you can upgrade as you could in your typical RPG type game. However, what is there suits this game well and is great for a casual RPG player, or even someone who has never played a Role Playing Game before and just wanted to shoot some bad guys.
The shooting mechanics on the game are fairly good, maybe not quite as good as your Armed Assault or Call Of Duty series, but it still works well. The game has a inbuilt content creator, basically resulting in thousands – maybe even millions of possible guns to find. You will never find the same gun twice.
The Story probably lacks a little bit of depth/background, but tbh you don't need it in this title. Its a fairly open world, with you getting the objective and setting off to complete it in any way you feel necessary.
Great game, well worth the buy/.
