GAME Borderlands                

 

Overall Appeal

     1   2   3   4   5   6   7   8   9   10

     -Free roam shooter with lots of side quests and fun challenges to unlock

     -Huge replay value online, and great humour that will make you ROFL!    

 

 

Fun Factor

     1   2   3   4   5   6   7   8   9   10

     -I fell WAYYYYY behind in my reviews playing this one. I was supposed to be done this game weeks before now, but I couldn’t put this game away (and I made Ronin pick up the slack, for once!). Online co-op is awesome, and with the more people who join the harder the enemies get, which = better loot!     

 

 

Replay Value

     1   2   3   4   5   6   7   8   9   10

     -Huge replay value, in your 2nd play through you can load your character and keep your level and full inventory, mobs start at level 35ish 

     -I could play the Online forever, and I tried!

 

 

Presentation/Graphics

     1   2   3   4   5   6   7   8   9   10

     -Screen layout is great and doesn’t take up too much room. Graphics are awesome looks really cool, not realistic but more like a really well drawn comic book. 

 

 

Online

     1   2   3   4   5   6   7   8   9   10

     -Great online co-op play, mobs increase in strength with more people and drop better loot             

 

Storyline

     1   2   3   4   5   6   7   8   9   10

     -Storyline is ok, you’re looking for the fabled “Vault” which has untold wealth, etc. Most of your gameplay will likely come from completing side quests and challenges  

                       

 

Character

     1   2   3   4   5   6   7   8   9   10

     -Apart from different class skills and talents

     -Your character doesn’t matter at all to the story                               

 

Customizable

     1   2   3   4   5   6   7   8   9   10

     -Great character customization, talents, class mods

     -There is a huge randomization of items that ends up with a ridiculous number of various guns

Minor Details
