"Borderlands is just one hell of a sweet surprise. It's got just the right mix of technical cool, addictive RPG elements, tongue in cheek charm, and visceral shooter action to appeal to a wider range of players than either the FPS or RPG on it's own ever could. From the looks of things it's something of a sleeper hit, and it deserves to be. It's easily one of the best offerings of 2009."
