On the Border of excellence - just misses the mark

Disadvantages: Poor storyline; very repetitive after a while; texture pop-in.

...Despite developer Gearbox Software recently releasing some of the most disappointing games in history – Duke Nukem Forever and Aliens: Colonial Marines – I was excited to find its 2009 title Borderlands waiting for me as a free game via Sony’s excellent s ...

Advantages: Distinctive cel-shaded visuals; smooth, satisfying shooting; RPG elements nicely implemented

Disadvantages: It ends . : - (
