I am not joking…..borderlands does have midgets.
Borderlands is a very unique game, It combines aspects of MMO’S (Massively Multiplayer Online) with the gameplay of an FPS ( First Person Shooter)
There are 4 classes to choose from
They each have different attributes and when played together can help each other through the game. The level cap is 50 and there is split screen and online co-op multiplayer
So far I haven’t spotted any real flaws to the game, I have come across maybe one or two minor bugs and the art style is different and rather amazing in its own way. For now I have only played multiplayer co-op and the game play is fantastic, but I can imagine if you were playing single player you would get rather bored.
A major selling point of the game is the arsenal of guns, and there are thousands! I’m not even joking there are over 1000 guns which makes working out your inventory of weapons a kind of mini-game. As you can imagine with so many guns you begin to find guns that are practically exactly the same except for maybe a minor tweak of speed or damage.
There are plenty of enemies to fight yourself through and as soon as you start getting sick of the same old enemy a new set of alien inhabitants cross your road.
The game plays marvelously and I cannot get enough of the way they have been able to make an FPS feel like an MMO, and we can only hope other games companies follow 2k’s lead and develop more games as good as Borderlands.
