Level Forty Two writes: "Have you ever experienced the joy of jumping into a dungeon with a friend or two, tackling quests and imposing enemies? Sharing loot and skill point placement strategies? Pushing on into the wilderness for one more hour, just so you can level up and use that awesome piece of equipment you just found? Trade in the jungles and dank dungeons for sprawling deserts and huge fortresses, and you can easily describe Borderlands this way. Drawing inspiration from the Diablo series and other similar games, Borderlands is an amazing combination of RPG-esque leveling and questing and the FPS qualities of guns, grenades, and carnage."
