Borderlands - Preview @ GameRevolution

by Magerette, 2009-08-17 18:19:15

GameRevolution is the latest to test drive the PC version of the FPS/RPG hybrid from Gearbox, Borderlands, with references to graphics improvements and the shooter aspects. Here's a sample:

Really, the theme of being the Anti-Fallout 3 seems to run through the whole game. It’s the FPS-RPG for folks who don’t like to waste time on all the in-between B.S. and get straight to the action. You’ve come to the appropriately named planet of Pandora to seek out the legendary Vault, as opposed to trying to escape from one and find your long lost father. The two games meet in the middle when it comes to exploring your story in a vast wasteland...

Conclusion:

...we only had about half an hour in single- and multiplayer co-op, and there was no way I was going to see everything Borderlands had to offer in that short amount of time. But what I did see was good enough to make me feel that this is going to be the FPS-RPG for the person who doesn’t want to schlep their gear around a wasteland for hours on end. A game of casual depth if you will...
