Play Vault's Phil:
"The border between first person shooters and role playing games has been somewhat a matter of opinion in recent years. Nothing else has been quite as confusing as Borderlands. The developers in the run up to the release of the game asked for the game to be called a First person role player, a mixture of the two genres as it aimed to be both these things and hopefully become greater by doing so. Borderlands, however, is more much more interesting than its FPRPG tag line and is perhaps one of the most creatively rich games in recent times. At the moment, you can easily find the game lying around for £5 and that’s for the GOTY edition which comes with all the DLC that was released for the game."
