Gearbox have been touting this game as something of a new thing, a new genre and to some degree - I guess it is. I would however describe it more as a mesh of a lot of different genres rolled into one. There are of course a lot of ways to really mess this 'meshing' process up but I'm happy to report that - for the most part - Borderlands is a well polished and fun experience.

I'll quickly get the negatives out of the way -

- You more than likely will not care about the storyline as the main questline is fairly poor and lacking depth and side missions quickly become a way to get cool new weaponry and experience points rather than a deep, involving experience.

- Mission/Quest variety isn't fantastic but certainly not dire by any stretch. If you have played an MMO, you will know how things work immediately (go there, kill 10 of those, come back and get reward etc. etc.)

- The split-screen interface isn't scaled properly and you will have to aim around your screen to see the entire thing. An annoyance but certainly not a game-breaker.

- Some in-game achievements are bugged currently but nothing a quick patch won't fix.

and now with the positives -

+ Graphically this game is great. Some people won't 'get it' but it's very stylised. In the early gameplay videos it used to be another boring, brown, realistic-esque game but thankfully this new art direction is a real breath of fresh air.

+ Weapons: there have been all sorts of numbers posted around the internet... anywhere from 200,000 to 16,000,000. They aren't all drastically different. There are maybe 20 different weapon models but the point is, they all have different procedurally generated statistics (e.g.

Borderlands is a game I eagerly awaited for quite some time and it was the first game I ever pre-ordered. That said I had high expectations for it but despite that I did not try to fool myself. I knew the millions of guns would never be millions of entirely unique weapons but many would only be different due to statistics and I realized that the storyline would not be an epic tale of hopes, dreams and betrayals. What I was hoping for was something incredibly fun in the same way old-school dungeon crawlers are but in first person shooter style with four player co-op and loot driven gameplay.

What I got was exactly that. From the start you never have much downtime between confrontations with enemies but the quests get gradually more interesting as the game moves on as it is, to start, very similar to mmo's (go there, kill 5 of those). The gameplay is, as I said, very loot driven, that is, through the game you'll spend a lot of time finding new weapons, class mods, artifacts and shields. Some will only be good for a quick buck while others will stay your main weapons for several levels. In single player the game can hold its own but with one to three friends this game really shines. From planning the next combat based on the classes involved to fighting over loot it makes the game come alive.

To mention the storyline a little, it has been one of the main critiques of the game for being practically non existing but saying that is kind of like saying the story in Half life didn't exist. Although Half Life (especially number 2) made the story clearer you can find a good story in Borderlands if you can be bothered with paying attention to your surroundings, quest logs and especially audio-logs.

I should start by saying that I have long been a big fan of post-apocalyptic movies, like the Mad Max Trilogy (obviously), A Boy and His Dog, Hardware, Damnation Alley, Battletruck, Cherry 2000 etc, so when a post-apocalyptic set game comes along, I can't wait to play it.

When Fallout 3 was released, I rushed out to play it. I was very disappointed. I found it very dull and unengaging. It took far too long to do anything worthwhile, the inability to carry much loot necessitated far too many wasted journeys and the combat system, while acceptable on the PC, was completely useless and aggravating on the xbox 360. It was also far too easy to run out of ammo. One thing it did do well was the radio station playing 30s and 40s dance hall tunes.

So when Borderlands was announced I was again eager to get a copy and play it since it sounded like the perfect combination of the levelling up and skill / ability choices that made Dragon Age entertaining and the combat of COD, Halo etc in a post-apocalyptic, comic book setting.

Borderlands could have been a brilliant game with an excellent mix of RPG and FPS elements, but it is critically flawed on a number of levels. It is painfully repetitive and pointless to the extent it generated existential angst whilst playing and it lacks atmosphere and what atmosphere it has is totally undermined by the awful soundtrack. However, it does look fantastic and hopefully a follow-up could be developed which uses the graphics and game engine but adds a story (any story would do) and more atmosphere.

The Good:

Graphics - Graphically the game is stunning, it's like playing within a 2000AD comic environment.
