Borderlands mini review, 10 Nov. 2009
Personally I love the game. I think its fresh and original. I will say that the character balance is off, Lilith the Siren seemingly the most popular choice because of her ability to run faster, albeit temporarily. I also think that the menu system doesn't have many options to tweak the game - things like mic volume or mic boost would have been very much appreciated.
I do like the fact that it doesn't focus heavily on the RPG elements because the guts of the game are a solid FPS. I would say the game is definitely watered down when played solo. It really has to be played with at least one other player for long lasting fun.
The story is great. The graphics are beautiful. The music fits well and the voice acting is good. I would recommend this game to anyone except the hardcore RPG fan who may be disappointed with the overall lack of RPG elements.
