OXM UK - Borderlands 2 - on the verge of greatness

Matt Lees from OXM writes "Borderlands was a surprise smash hit, but things could have been very different. Dropping the first game's original gritty photorealism for the now-iconic cel-shaded style mere months before release was a move that most studios would have thought suicidal. Three years and six million copies later, it's impossible to imagine Borderlands without it." (Borderlands 2, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

I gave up on the 1st boarderlands game 3 times and sold it 3 times too. Till a great friend showed & explained to me the RPG element of the game( i just could'nt get my head around how one game works better than the other and this gun you are'nt ranked up enough to use yet etc, etc). Yes, yes, laugh if you will at me, it took abit to grasp for me. but, Since then I've found it a very hard game to put dowm. I'm really stoked & excited for the 2'nd game. it comes out just before my B'day too. Surely that's a day off work???? lol.

it felt off to me too, but keep going at it....(lol, i was thinking of getting kills with head shots at 10 level higher enemies) it was frustrating at first (1st time i play an RPG game) i bot this game cuz of its looks FPS and its funny videos. Several months later, to this day, this is my only game with a platinum trophie.... :D
