Borderlands - Review Flood

by Myrthos, 2009-10-20 16:23:49

The following reviews of Borderlands made their appearance:

GameInformer: 9.25/10
Borderlands attempts many things, which in this medium can often end with a laundry list of features but no fully-developed ones. This is one of the rare occasions where all of the new experiences a game brings to the table work out splendidly, especially when viewed as an entire package.

TeamXbox: 9/10
No, Borderlands isn't perfect, but it's one of those games that transcends most of its faults.

GamePro: 4.5/5
Borderlands is an absolute blast that I'll go back to again and again, even if my friends aren't around to help out. Considering how great of a time I had in Pandora, though, I expect they'll be around for a while too.

IGN: 8.8/10
Gearbox's Borderlands is without a doubt a slick, satisfying hybrid title for those who know what to expect. Includes a review video.

3DJuegos: 8.7/10
Don't have a clue what they are saying in the article it's Spanish :)

Planet Xbox: 8.6/10
Borderlands is now in stores around the world with additional downloadable content already announced. Whether you're a FPS, RPG or racing fan, this is a must-play game and with multiple different gameplay types, it's guaranteed to keep you busy for an endless number of hours.

Games Radar: 8/10
Borderlands is a very entertaining shooter and a rather bland RPG. It rewards dedication with new guns and new things to shoot at, which is all kinds of fun for players who enjoy MMO-style progression. But if its charm and depth hadn’t been abandoned so quickly, it may have been absolutely brilliant.

Rock, Paper, Shotgun: All thumbs up
Their review is in the form of a discussion between 4 reviewers.
