4.0 out of 5 stars Hours of quirky FPS fun, 30 Sept. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Borderlands: Game of the Year - Classics (Xbox 360) (Video Game)
Furst off if you wish to obtain a 2nd disc with all the dlc instead of a download code you need to purchase the Classics GOTY edition.

I was sceptical about playing this because of the cell shaded 'cartoon' style graphics. However the game is great fun, a solid mixture of first person shooter and role playing. The action is solid and early on I found the game very challenging, don't be fooled by the cartoonish look of Borderlands.

One outstanding feature of this game, other than the quirky style and tight shooting controls, is the ability to reverse character development decisions. In other words if you are unhappy with the way you have spent skill points developing your character, Borderlands allows you to backtrack and undo those decisions by re-attributing points to other more fitting skills. This makes character development and subsequent gameplay very flexible. This mecahnism allows you to try out different styles of play and find out which one works best for you.

Regardless of or maybe due to it's quirky style, Borderlands brings something a bit different to the first person shooter market. In terms of value for money the GOTY edition is excellent in that it provides many hours of entertainment and can be re-played either re-building the same character in different ways or with another of the four character types available.

Borderlands is kind of a more tongue in cheek version of Fallout in some respects and definitely worth a go if you like first person shooters and would like a little variety from the standard military shooters. It's a long way from being a serious shooter and it's all the more fun and unique as a result.
