Borderlands - Review @ The Escapist

by Skavenhorde, 2009-10-30 14:15:48

The Escapist has a review out on the Xbox 360 version of Borderlands. There's no score, but it is a slightly positive. They did not like the single-player portion of the game and felt to truly enjoy it you have to play it with a friend. Here is their summary:

Bottom Line: It's the core concept of Diablo and the setting of Fallout 3 mixed with the visual style of Team Fortress 2. Borderlands has great style and aesthetic, fun characters, and lots and lots of guns just waiting for someone to come along and loot them. It's great fun when with a companion or three (though system link or online play is preferred to the view-squashing split-screen), but solo players will probably find it hard to get into the bleak and unwelcoming world of Pandora.

Recommendation: If you like guns and the prospect of hidden treasure gets your blood a-pumping, give Borderlands a shot. But make sure to bring a friend when you do.
