Absolutely absurdly ambitious. Probably the three words that best describe the next project from Brothers in Arms coders Gearbox. Trading the muddy fields of war-torn Holland for the depths of space, Borderlands is a genre hybrid that defies categorisation. With fully implemented vehicular action, open world exploration, super-slick first-person shooting, an online co-op, a smattering of role-playing and even - shock horror! - some decent acting, its kitchen sink approach promises to deliver big-style. Oh, and so do its 500,000 weapons.
