Granted, that was just the airport, but I somehow feel like whoever designed planet Pandora, the world on which Borderlands takes place, simply imagined Texas and changed the name to avoid offending anybody. Borderlands is another newfangled shooter/RPG hybrid in the vein of Fallout 3, casting the player as a mercenary searching for Pandora's legendary Vault. Slightly unfortunate word choice aside, the Fallout 3 similarities end there, as Borderlands unfolds into a fast-paced, frenetic, and goofy adventure."
