It's fun at first but: 1) Hours in and every part of the game is very samey. There's the odd cave or hallway to mix things up but still yawn. 2) RPG shooters mean aiming perfectly and still missing, a lot. RPG shooters have never made sense to me, for a lot of reasons.

Still delivers what makes Borderlands great: decent enough depth, co-op craziness, a silly and humorous story. BL2 is better but I still love this one.

This seemed a lot more interesting when it first came out, back when it was unique.

This game hit me like a ton of bricks when it first came out. I'm bad at shooters and games with shooter elements; this is the game that met this RPG kid halfway by having accessible shooting mechanics along with good-enough RPG elements to keep me interested. Fun story, characters that were fine enough, couch co-op that's actually fun to play, fulfillment of my loot goblin tendencies, and an art style that I rather enjoy even if it isn't for everyone. Inarguably repetitive, but a good time.

Borderlands was some kind of sleeper hit. I don’t even know how I first learned of it, or why it even seemed worth my time. In fact, I remember being on the fence until a couple days before it was released when Walmart announced it’d cost only $40 for the first week of release. Then I was sold. I poured so much time into this game it’s not even funny.

Highly entertaining. It combines FPS with RPG elements, has great comedic story-telling, a kickass opening credits, and a solid multi-player. A bit aged, now, as the 2nd installment pretty much improves on all elements, but still a very solid gaming experience.

Let me come right out and say it, I don't like the art style, it doesn't look like a comic book, it looks ugly and lazy. Also the gameplay isn't very good

Fun enjoyable gameplay with a nice style. At some point it does get a bit repetitive for me.

The world design is fun to watch, but the gameplay is so flat, the costumization of the weapons it's not enough to keep the interest on the long term. Probably a game for people that just want to relax half an hour after work.

Fun shooter that doesn't take itself too seriously. Visuals are unlike anything else out there. Loadout progression and ability to choose from vastly different characters with very different fighting styles makes for high replay value.

A mechanically interesting game that is let down by everything around the edges being very, very rough. There basically are no characters and the "story" is just a lame excuse to get boring enemies in front of your cross-hairs. Fortunately, the loot-based progression helps make this game worth playing: the weapon variety is fantastic.

Entertaining in small doses, but it gets old fast.

Borderlands is a blast. It's fast, it's funny, it's irreverent and it's gorgeous to look at. The combination of FPS and RPG is not something that always works out well, thankfully this game nailed it.

No invert-x. The sequels have it.
