Borderlands 2 PS3 Review


Bullymongs roam the wastelands, Rakks patrol the skies and bandits protect their settlements, waiting for an unsuspecting traveller to pass by. All of these combine to make the world not only a beautiful and diverse environment, but also an incredibly...

A better storyline with hilarious writing ; A cleaner looking visual style ; Pandora is more diverse than ever ; Stunning audio with great voice acting ; Handful of genuinely ingenious quests ; Improves on the original in so many ways ; It's more...

Occasional glitches but nothing major ; The vehicles still aren't that good

Borderlands 2 review: Huge scale and loot addiction papers over the cracks


Lots and lots and lots of guns ; Utterly compelling, can't-stop-yourself loot collecting ; Great world, backed by some razor-sharp wit ; Co-op is laser-focused and smart

Story never feels like it's driving the game ; Easy to get ground down by the grind

Borderlands PS3 Review


Fallout 3 may be plagued by game breaking bugs, but concealed behind it all is a wonderful game that mashes the FPS and RPG genres (perhaps because of their acronym titles, these two were always meant to be together) convincingly. Gearbox's Borderlands...

The weak story of Borderlands is its most disappointing feature, but elsewhere it’s largely a successful concoction of two genres, with all the compulsion of an RPG but also the tactile feedback of an FPS. Though the RPG aspect outweighs the more...

General Knoxx is Borderlands' best addition to date, offering more terrain, new enemies, and most importantly, more ways to build your character.

Borderlands PS3 Review


In this day and age it seems that the only way to make a sure fire hit is to create a sequel: Modern Warfare 2, Halo 3, Command & Conquer 4, Guitar Hero 5; all will sell well on the strength of their branding. So when a new IP emerges from developers,...

Attempts something new and makes it work ; Four player co-op is devilishly fun ; The art stlye works

The game ending offered no closure and left you confused ; Even with 30 mega billion zillion guns, you only end up using like a couple of variations of the same rifle ; Going solo isn't that much fun

Borderlands Review


Andrew Bryant punches dogs... (AND IN THE GAME!) Game Title: Borderlands Publisher: 2K Games Developer: Gearbox Studios Format Reviewed: PC

Negative as my words sound, I don’t actually ‘dislike’ Borderlands… It’s a well put together IP, the gunnery is top rate at time and the co-op experience only topped by (yep) Left 4 Dead. It’s just a shame it wasn’t released at a sensible time (i.e....

Borderlands: The Zombie Island of Dr. Ned


Moody new environments, diverse new foes, and even more of Borderlands' signature humor make this new content very entertaining and very worthwhile.

Environments and enemies offer welcome variety ; Great humor throughout ; Good number of quests and areas ; Same great gunplay, loot, and artistic style

Difficulty is based on your story progress rather than character level ; Occasional visual slowdown

Review: Borderlands


This game holds its own against the big guns.

This sniper rifle doesn’t have the same three point eight zoom level that the last had. But “wow” it is packing an additional eighty points of damage and giving plus two-hundred percent to critical damage. A no brainer then, I’ll take it. Hard earned...

Expert review by : D+PAD Staff (



Borderlands is a finicky one: at times it feels like it's neither quite a shooter nor an RPG – it advertises itself on being a mix of both, or a “Role Playing Shooter” as developer Gearbox put it – but on other occasions it feels like a seamless,...

Borderlands, then: decent by yourself, fantastic with friends.
