IGN: Borderlands Game of the Year Edition Review

It's something action role-playing game fans looking for an experience more up-close and brutal than genre entries of the third-person variety should have a blast with, and one of the more memorable products of 2009. (Borderlands: GOTY Edition, PC, PS3, Xbox 360) 8.8/10

Never played Borderlands so this package has a great value :)
BakedGoods  +   1947d ago
8.8? What happened to their .5 scale?
Lovable  +   1947d ago
Did they changed their scoring before?
NecrumSlavery  +   1947d ago
Borderlands is awesome. It's a solid 9. And it won a couple subcatagory GotY awards. Should of just called it Pandora Collectors Edition or something
despair  +   1947d ago
only the first page they added the GOTY contents, its the exact same review as when the game first came out.
AndrewRyan  +   1947d ago
It's a great game,
Only because it is SO NEW. I've never or rarely experienced a game like this, it is rare to come by in gaming a game with such great art style and design as Borderlands. Borderlands is the pure definition of gaming, fun!

@BakedGoods
It is now ascertain that the statement "You can's spell IGNorant without IGN" cannot be more valid at this point.

-End statement

I thought Borderlands was terrible... but i did play too much of it and hit the time when i got tired of seeing the same thing over and over and over again. Also, i could one shot most enemies with my over-powered guns.

I wish there were enemies that could kill me but sadly they were all cannon fodder.

It's fun game with friends... terrible if you play it alone. Also, dont abuse the place in which there are 7 gun cases per reload of the game. You'll acquire powerful weapons and armor dependent on your level and become over powered.

Agree with you there.

I bought it with discount in the Netherlands for only €10.

This game is only fun with co op friends. I tried to play it alone but its so boring. Everything looks the same. Boring planet. This game I give it a 7.

If you wanna buy it then I suggest you to go rent it first. Before hasty buy and regret. GOTY my @sss.

I never did stop playing Borderlands, going through my 3rd playthrough now. (9.5)
tacosRcool  +   1946d ago
Borderlands GoTY edition will be the one to get.

Plus I never like reading the crap reviews from IGN
versusALL  +   1947d ago
I want Borderlands so bad, still haven't gotten it yet(money problems)but now that I got a job I might just get it. I is there anyone who still plays online?
NecrumSlavery  +   1947d ago
plenty. one of the best online systems ever created
Eiffel  +   1947d ago
I don't even remember this game winning any awards. Seriously.

I guess any game can call them self that nowadays.

it's worth the deal
because you get the duke nukem demo!! :D:D haha!
Bass_fisherman  +   1947d ago
That makes anything being worth it
HavenOfFear  +   1946d ago
I already bought the game when it first came out, but none of the dlc due to the fact that I stopped playing. I'm tempted to rebuy this game for the dlc and the duke nukem demo,then again it's a waste of money when you think about it.
gamer8179  +   1947d ago
It was still in the top 20 xbox live according to major nelson. So yes, their is plenty of people playing this online
neogeo  +   1947d ago
everything is GOTY edition
I can't wait for Haze GOTYE. It won so many awards!
Akagi  +   1947d ago
Haha, this guy. He's TOO HUMAN.
palaeomerus  +   1947d ago
Sadly Too Human is better than Haze.
Corepred4  +   1946d ago
sad that anybody thinks any of those two games are better than any other game.
kaixxi  +   1946d ago
wow
i lol. nice trolling u got there.
oh wait. sarcasm? =|
Achemki  +   1947d ago
GOTY edition?! Don't you actually have to win GOTY first? Wow. When are we getting the .detuned and Linger in Shadows GOTY double pack, lol?
Lovable  +   1947d ago
And it did won GOTY. I'm not sure which site it was that gave it though. I think it was an Xbox site or something.
ReaperXL7  +   1947d ago
Ok, so who exactly is the boss of what is game of the year or not? IGN? Gamespot? Gametrailers? GameInformer? The Spike VGAs?

I'm sure it was game of the year for some people, I wouldent call it game of the year in my opinion, but I will absolutely say that it is one of my favorite co-op games this entire gen.

I hated Mario Galaxy 2 but i'm sure it will be someones game of the year.

i didnt purchase any of the dlc cause i knew this would happen,although it would prob be cheaper to buy the dlc,id rather have it all on a disc for the future,game is great
Raider69  +   1947d ago
The DLC is not in the disc lol !!!You have to download it using a code that is given on GOTY edition!BS!
xTrueLegendx  +   1947d ago
XD
imo it's a 9 not 8.8 borderlands was an great game
SoapShoes  +   1947d ago
So .2 points makes it THAT much better? lol I haven't played it yet but I'm probably going to give it a shot.
RankFTW  +   1946d ago
0.2 makes ALL the difference.
Raider69  +   1947d ago
Bad move
i was hoping that the DLC would come on physical disc like the main quest!It seems that now everybody must have the console connected to PSN or XBOX LIVE to enjoy some games at full!Thats BS!

That's why I'm not buying it yet, I'll wait for a price drop.
despair  +   1947d ago
The review has not been updated, lazy as IGN is they just added that little bit on the first page with the exact same review and scores from the original release, they just provided links to the various add-ons reviews. Biggest gaming site and yet they can't take the time to do a new GOTY review...Didn't even see a UC2 GOTY review either...
antz1104  +   1947d ago
Great replay value, I've had it since day 1 and I'm still leveling up my characters. Can't wait for the level cap increase on the 19th!
SockMaster  +   1947d ago
Personal Game Of The Year
Started my 5th playthrough and im not tired of it one bit, still need to do a play through with the solider and beserker!

Awesome game, easily 9/10
coolbeans  +   1946d ago
Agreed
Still stuck between choosing this and Batman:AA as my personal GOTY (maybe Demon's Souls is up there).
Captain Tuttle  +   1947d ago
Fantastic game. Get it and play it if you haven't already
Sarevok  +   1947d ago
oh goody.. I can buy the full game now. :D
Corepred4  +   1946d ago
game sucked. period. i couldn't stand it, i couldn't have returned it any quicker. imo a really crappy game.
maawdawg  +   1946d ago
I love general "it sucked" comments. Care to actually say what was wrong with it or why it was so crappy?

My 2c on Borderlands...
Good FPS gameplay, solid graphics and sound, GREAT writing and comedy element, nonexistent to mediocre story, lots of loot and nice RPG leveling, great co-op, lots of replay value with different classes, 2nd playthrough and also the upcoming rescaling patch, plus just loot hunting in endgame.

With $40 of DLC packaged in on top of a quality $60 release product I don't see a downside for buying in now if you haven't played the game already.

Borderlands? Game of the year? Don't make me laugh
darren_poolies  +   1946d ago
This is the same score as the normal game, with the DLC this edition deserves at least 9.2, come on IGn give credit where it is deserved.
