Summary: Borderlands... wow. Nothing more needs to be said. The first Borderlands was something entirely new to me; I'd never seen a cross betwixt my two favourite genres (RPG+shooter) before. With the artfully balanced skill trees and unending randomised weaponry system (no two guns are ever exactly the same), just the gameplay mechanics alone are enough to give this game five stars. It doesn't end there, though. I am in love with Borderlands' franchise-wide irreverence.
Summary: Just an overall great game, and only a few flaws. I would completely, and totally NEVER suggest Moxi's DLC be done, unless you are completely insane. -If you just have to, I'd exploit the mechanics and use a low level host to start it and then just carry the person through with a max level character... Even then it takes........ just so long to finish that DLC, and in the bad kind of way.
Summary: Just a fun game. Humor through out. graphics are cell-shaded (like a comic book). Normally that would bug me, but in this game it works well. The game of the year edition means it includes all the optional content (called DLCs). It runs well on even mid-level laptops.
Summary: So far, I have 100 hours of play (according to Steam). This game rocks! Great side quests, character options, and co-op mode! A definite must-have. I purchased this after playing Borderlands 2 for almost 200 hours. Both games give you plenty of value for the money.
