Before someone asks if this game is any good I will write a mini-review.
If you expected something like Fallout 3 you will be disappointed. This game has zero story, zero characters, linear game progression and absolutely NO CHOICES. You can't side with the bandits or blow up towns or just shoot everyone.
Expect an FPS version of Phantasy Star Online set in a post-apocalyptic world chock-a-block with injokes and references to other games and movies. The gameplay is mindless with the only driving force in the game being to grind endlessly for a slightly better gun.
Play it intoxicated with friends and it becomes an amazingly fun and addictive game. You'll find yourself melting giant gimp-armed psychos and cutting midgets in two.
+2 for the rendering style
Toe 10 is in the sac.
This game is not like Saints Row 2.
5 for Borderlands. Easily one of the best FPS titles I've ever played.
I don't really consider Deus Ex to be an FPS in the traditional sense. More of a sort of role-playing game with a FPS interface, not really an action game per se unless you played that type of character.
Also Deus Ex was horrible.
5 stars for everything. I was worried my and the other tagfags scared you off. Glad we didn't.

I thought it looked and played like Fallout 3 should have done. But no, it doesn't have much character, humour, story etc. Still, I fucking hated Fallout 3, (loved Fallout 2) so I enjoyed Borderlands, sniping the shit out of everything from 3 miles away.
It is better then FO3 simply because it is about 100x more fun to play.
The main difference between this and FO3 for me was that once I beat them both, I felt like playing borderlands again, make a new character, etc, where as with Fallout I was pretty much done, didn't feel like trudging through the slow parts just to do the fun ones again.
You like Fallout 2 because your wrong and slow.
Holy shit. This might actually be the Saints Row of FPSs.
If you're wondering what that means, it means that I have to play it.
So what's everyone's gamertag?
Mine is "The Culinarian"
Now I don't wanna say, cause yours is better.
It's "Mechavomit", though.
Eggyokehio and I'm willing to take turns on picking up blues/ opening chests.
I can support the shit outa you with my soldier...
Good game, but it was so close to being great. There are only like five of these stylized intros and the plot/characters are bone thin.
I like the way this looks.
I'm prettyy sure I woke the right dog, dogg.
No but seriously, this is a two-star game at best.
Jus' walk away..
To me, Borderlands is a game with a pricetag.
