Did it look good? Sure; the concept of a free-roaming shooter was appealing - but the new direction the game has taken will really make Borderlands stand out. The visual style is something Quentin Tarantino would come up with after watching too much anime. The opening music is Cage The Elephant, and the characters are introduced in a wacky revenge-film manner. The east-meets-west grindhouse movie aesthetic blew me away as I watched the opening cutscene".
