How Long Is 'Borderlands'?

MTV Multiplayer writes:

"Since it comes at the end of my somewhat lengthy review, and it's the question I've gotten most from readers, I wanted to clarify just how long it took me to play through "Borderlands" with a single character. Keep in mind that this doesn't include New Game Plus, which allows you to replay the game with new enemy types and better loot. This is just the first time through, from the start of the game to the credits." (Borderlands, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

I'm going to have a lot of fun with this game. Gamefly shipped it today and it should arrive on Thursday. I'll be diving right in splitscreen with my wife.

"I'll be diving right in splitscreen with my wife."

I've never heard of this position before.... i will ask my girl friend if she knows and if shes interested in giving it ago. wink wink. And buddy somethings are better done without the company of your female partner, they always tend to find a way to ruin everything.

Ill be picking the game up on the way home tommorrow after work so im really looking forward to giving it a whirl.

Not really long enough imo. It's meant to be an RPG, and RPGs should be atleast 40 hours when you do everything. I was disappointed when I finished Mass Effect in 24 hours, whilst doing every possible mission (and I wasn't rushing). But Fallout 3 was mega-long, loved it, was hoping Borderlands would be the same :(

It's not really a RPG, it's more like the likes of diablo, the playtime relies more on the replayability (thanks to the loot and levelling up of your character) than on the length of the main quest on your first playthrough.

I picked up borderlands today, and played ALL afternoon. These types of games are tailored perfectly for my tastes. No other game this year has grabbed me like borderlands. The game isn`t for everybody, but I just know what I like.

True words from a fellow gamer. Bubbles+. =)
In the end, we can only choose for ourselves. The worst thing to happen to a free man is having someone deciding things for you. (free gamer in this case)

completely agree there. At the end, it only matters how you like it.
I am waiting for PC version but this game looks my type of game, watching from youtube footage.

yeah I've been playing all day
It says im a centurion by my level. I think it means i kick a lot of a$$ haha
Myst  +   2300d ago
Yeah I was playing all afternoon yesterday, and most of the night ( friend got it later and woke me up asking to play ) The game is addictive from the beginning especially when the room is full. Those normal monsters at times feel like bosses if your level is under there's to.

I love this game! Soo many guns you can have. It's just like Fallout, but a little better. The action is fast pace. You can take on harder missions if you please. This is a good game!
UltimaEnder  +   2301d ago
Maybe it's 17 hours for one play-through if YOUR A FREAKING FULL TIME VIDEO GAME PLAYER, for most NORMAL people this would easily take 25-30 hours....nice story though - LOL!
rdgneoz3  +   2301d ago
It could be 17 if you don't do like any side quests. But there's like 130 so it'd take a lot longer if you want to finish everything.

I am f*cking enjoying it..
I wish the game never end :P
I loved it more than many great games!!!

co-op = happiness
chrisulloa  +   2301d ago
Cool, I really wanna get it. Reviewers don't seem to like it all that well though.

Road Warrior style game finally!
Borderlands has blown me away! I think it might just be my favorite game of the year and maybe even on the PS3! I musta played for 6 hrs straight and only got to level 7. It takes some work and ive been trying to explore everywhere. I want all the extra loot. You gotta explore man! Mad Max and the Road Warrior have always been my favorite movies, so this is a frikin dream. I tried to get into Fallout 3, but just did not like it and took it back after a couple weeks. This is much better i think. More my pace and just enough rpg elements. Great job 2K and love the art style of the game. Amazing!

This game is coming along at the right time. Im sure its a good game though.
keysy420  +   2301d ago
i like it so far
to bad uncharted came out last week
Captain Tuttle  +   2300d ago
This game is an absolute riot. I was expecting it to be fun but not THIS fun. I couldn't put it down last night.

Good job Gearbox.
m-s-8-2  +   2300d ago
Bought it yesterday. Too bad I still need to finish Demon's Souls. It'll have to wait.
Myst  +   2300d ago
Same here, yet I kind of put Demon's Souls on hold to play with my friends a bit, since he at least got this game instead of Demon's Souls.

So for the time being I'm alternating and whenever that Demon's Souls bug comes around I'll just switch real fast. both are good games, but it just sucks having to choose.
Kalowest  +   2300d ago
Damn you guys are lucky to have both Demon's souls and Borderlands.
I'll buy Borderland for my 360 when i have the money. Played DS 2 weeks straight.

It's even worse than that for me. Started with DS, put that on hold to play through uncharted, all the while I had Brutal Legend and Batman unopened sitting on my desk. Now Borderlands is with it, followed by Ratchet and Clank next week. I Just don't have that kind of free time.
VanHalen  +   2300d ago
Cant get enough!
Played Borderlands for hours day and night. Havent done that in awhile, even with U2! I havent even gotten to the multiplayer yet. Im having too much fun with the single player. Kinda sux though cuz my chic aint into these kinds of games, so im doin it solo. Only got a couple bros with PS3s and they dont got this game! Im hearing this game is all about the co op too. Still cant get over how addictive the missions are and the setting and characters are frikin awesome! I cant think of anything i dont like about this game. Back to Borderlands in a couple!
Saryk  +   2300d ago
What really, really, really pisses me off about these reviews is that, I AM NOT PLAYING THE GAME YET! (WHINE)………….
