GameSpy writes: "Borderlands is a "high-concept art style" shooter meets role playing game set in a post-apocalyptic world with a vault in it. If it sounds like you played this game last year when it was called Fallout 3, you'd be partially correct; the staff at developer Gearbox Software isn't hiding the fact that they were big fans of Bethesda's critically acclaimed 2008 title. But where Borderlands parts ways is in its protagonist's hopes to break into a coveted vault, not escape from one."
+Unique visual style
+Combat seems varied enough to stay fresh over long sessions.
-Developers seem a little too excited about their inspirations
-Doesn't exactly scream "original gameplay."
