Borderlands - Review @ Eurogamer
Another review for Borderlands. This time it's at Eurogamer who gave it 8/10. Jim Rossingol liked it, but thought the story, role-playing elements and ending could have been better:
Borderlands is unusual, playable, and an artfully violent step in an interesting direction for Gearbox. The story aspect of the game could have been better - I'd love to have seen the role-playing influence extend beyond stats, levels and loot - and the ending is a disappointment. Even so, this should be a favourite game of the year for a huge number of people, since it plugs into gamer impulses at such a fundamental level. We blow things up and collect the goodies. That part, at least, Gearbox has nailed.
