Dear Mr. Najberg; an open letter regarding WSJ's Borderlands 2 review

Harrison Engstrom writes; "Dear Mr. Najberg,

I’m writing to inform you that First Person Shooters have come along way since back in the day, often a Saturday, often a night rather than a day. Halo, created by Bungie, became a great staple in the diet of many console and PC playing fratboys at the turn of the century.

The review in question really is bizarre. Comparing Borderlands 2 to COD, and heavily criticizing it for lacking the same kind of competitive online multiplayer, is pretty bad form.

Borderlands 2 may feature FPS action, but it's a completely different genre at the end of the day. And I'd take Gearbox's shooting, looting, side-questing and exploration-based co-op over COD's team-based deathmatch any day of the week - especially given how entertaining and colourful the gameworld is.

There is a difference between grammatical mistakes and poorly written, this would be the latter. Furthermore, why on earth is this author defending a game they have yet to play? I love me some Borderlands, but don't be silly.

He wasnt defending the game, but rather pointing out the ignorance and stupidity of the poor review Najberg wrote.
