Lock, Load, & Face the Madness Get ready for the mind blowing insanity! Play as one of four trigger-happy mercenaries and take out everything that stands in your way! With its addictive action, frantic first-person shooter combat, massive arsenal of weaponry, RPG elements and four-player...
is original FPS/RPG game for co-op expierience. This game is unique idea of mixing FPS with RPG elements, adding some replayability after finishing the game. It's great fun to play with friends and smash some midgets or skags. The game offers us 4 characters with 3 skill trees, which u are free to add as u like. Because of high level cap(50 without dlc) u can easy master even 2 of 3 skill trees. Game have specific for this series dark humour, which is funny and entertaining. I need to say I've played borderlands after playing Borderlands 2 so I can now clearly compare them and see the pros and cons between them, and choose which one i would like to recommend u more, but for sure both are worth of playing if u want to get into the Borderlands story/universum.
Pros: +Funny story +Great gameplay +Best fun with friends +Many items/upgrades for character +Graphics still looks cool because of it's unique style +Many hours of fun
Cons: (u will notice them after playing Borderlands 2) -Lack of music/soundtracks -Walkthrough 2 is too easy. -Not many party bosses to farm -Low replayability (it was boring for me after 1-st walktrough) -Maps are way too similar to each other
Overall: 7,5/10. I think it's fair comparing to series. Ofc it was first game so we can't blame that it has lack of some aspects, but still it's really decent and i would recommend it for you. Play with friends for best expierience and fun <3.
Zombie Island of dr's Ned is typical smash'em zombie. It adds some hours to play and kill tons of zombies with decent plot about undeads. Anyway it's not giving much improvent to your character after walkthrough, so i would recommend only for people who likes zombies. Overall:7/10
MadMoxxi's Underdome Is DLC's with 3 different arenas on which u take challenge to survive waves. To be honest it's the worst dlc and I won't recommend it to anyone. I was trying to like it, i did beat 1 of 3 arena's and i must say: After 1-2 hours of playing it's so boring. Drops are craps, and u can't save beetween rounds u need to finish whole arena at once.If u get it with GOTY edition, enjoy ur bank store,otherwise don't buy it. Overall:4/10
Secret armory of general Knoxx Is probably the best of all DLC's for Borderlands. Its decent lenght story for several hours, with good expierience gain, many quests, and new different enemies. What is more when u finish it u gain acces to place with tons of loot chests, so this DLC is for sure the best improvement for ur character after ending main story walkthrough. Moreover DLC is increasing ur level cap by 11 levels so it's a lot. At last i must say, in this DLC u have the hardest boss in the game which is Crawmerax The invicible, so it's great opportunity to try urself out with friends or alone, and get some additional loot. Only con is there is no fast travel in this DLC, so it may be kinda annoying. Overall:9/10
I would recommend this game to u for story and fun with friends, but if i would choose between Borderlands and Borderlands 2, pick the 2nd one. It got a lot of improvements comparing to 1st game, and have more replayability which gives u an opportunity to play hundred of hours. Anyway BOTH games are really good, so play both if possible ;)

Borderlands is a great fps game to play, especially if you're with friends. Even if it is old, it holds up due to the gameplay and story mixed with humor. Graphics aren't very up to date but its still fun.
I was thinking about buying 'Borderlands' from the Steam store. The only problem that I have with buying this game is the fact that it might not be able to work on Windows 8.1. I have seen a lot of mixed responces to this topic on the internet and I am no...
