Borderlands is a fairly new game that is available on Xbox 360, Playstation 3 and PC. I am reviewing the game that is for the 360. Borderlands is a mix of FPS (first person shooter) and RPG (role playing game), and combined they make RPS (role playing shooter), one of the first to be created for...

Hybrid games are often released on the Xbox 360. Combining several different game genres into one creates a refreshing experience for the gamer, and thus revamps what could simply become another victim of an overly tried and tested genre. Borderlands, released by games company Gearbox Software in...

It's difficult to imagine someone picking up Borderlands looking for anything more than a little loose and fun gameplaying, much like you don't pick up Mario Bros and expect high violence and offensive language. It's a game which offers mindless fun in a 03.00am brain dead way, there is no real...

ConsWeak storytelling

I don't know why, but this game is ridiculously cheap on Amazon going for a little over £20. Becuase of this, when i recieved it free with my Elite, i really wasn't expecting much. WHAT I HATE MOST If you're someone who wants an indepth, captivating storyline in your games, then this one isnt for...

Welcome to Pandora. A wonderous place filled with many variations of, well, FUN! Millions and milions of weapons lie in wait with different abilities, stats and status effects. Seriously there is actually over 6 million weapons in the world. The story of this game is almost like a fairy tale...

The first thing you notice about Borderlands is definitely the unique graphical style, it's a strange hybrid of cell shading and almost comic book textures that does take some getting used to, but definitely worth it. Lines are crisp and detail is decent. In terms of game play it can start off a...

I couldn't wait for Borderlands. For months I was hyped, ready, for this so called vast game with the promise of a 'gazillion' guns. Pistols that shoot acid, or even rockets?! The variety of guns and the exploration that accompanies their discovery appealed to me. I couldn't wait to go out...

ConsFrame rate lag in large battles

Borderlands is not the easiest game to describe to someone. On the surface it looks like your standard first person shooter with an eccentric art style. In reality it actually combines the first person gameplay with the loop drop mechanics of action role-play games like Diablo. Thankfully this...

Borderlands is not the easiest game to describe and explain to someone. On the surface it looks like a standard 1st person shooter with interesting cartoon-like graphics. In reality borderlands combines this shooter element with the level progression and item collection mechanics of a typical...

I'd just like to say that Borderlands is one of my favourite games to come out on the Xbox 360. The unique graphical style is a nice change to the typical graphics realistic style of most shooters around. However let’s get to the main part of the game, the guns. There is a massive amount of guns...

I have to confess that I had been getting bored of first-person shooters lately. Modern Warfare 2 was good but it was nothing really special. My interest in first person shooters has been given a shot in the arm by Borderlands and Bioshock. They have rejuvenated any lost interest. Borderlands is...
