Hello Nevada! ... Uhm Sahara? Death Valley? Uhm my neighbors bucket of sand with maggots crawling in it? Eh ♥♥♥♥ it lets just call it Pandora (Not the box or the lush green/blue planet chock full of blue space monkeys).
Borderlands is supposedly set on a planet called Pandora (not sure why you would name a planet after a box that has death in it... OH WAIT, NEVERMIND THEN) and the story revolves around 4 idiots who came here to look for fairy tales and a pot of gold at the end of a rainbow made of meat bicycles... On second thought i might not have gotten what the game was about in the first place.
Don't get me wrong this is my favorite franchise right after the Bioshock one, its just that Borderlands 1 (the one this review is about) doesn't feel like a full game to me. Not without the ♥♥♥♥ ton of DLC that is.
All in all the gameplay is fun, you'll never find a gun that you'll stick with for more than a couple of hours and god forbid you actually find a legendary weapon, the controls are tight and responsive (not counting the vehicle controls... yuck.) and throwing your pet bird/falcon mutant at a midget yelling about stripping flesh always ends with a barrel full of fun :D
And shotgun shells...
