    A bland Shooter/RPG hybrid which has been way to hyped up.

    Excellent game, but playing with a friend is essential.

    Borderlands is an excellent game with a few silly design faults that take the shine off a little. Playing with a friend is an absolute blast, although we did think that it dragged on a little too long. The simple thi... Read Full Review

    Haven't had it long, but I figured I'd help those on the fence about it with whether to pick it up or now.
