Pandora is a dangerous planet, so it makes sense that the strongest people will dominate it. 4 Vault Hunters arrive to find the legendary Vault found themselves at the Fyrestone, where mysterious girl only known as Angel guides them, helping to build the reputation of problem solvers. Eventually, players will be tasked to find the first piece, of the Vault Key.
By being a story-driven first-person shooter with RPG elements, Borderlands allows adjusting the playstyle by finding different weapons, leveling up the character and improving some skills or attributes. Cooperative in nature, Borderlands can be played with up to 3 other players in total, where players can take the roles of 4 different characters: Brick the Berserker, Mordecai the Hunter, Lilith the Siren and Roland the Soldier. Some characters are naturally proficient in specific weapons, but players are not constricted to the skill requirements. When a specific weapon type is used often – the more proficient players are. Borderlands have several story DLCs that either shift the tone of the main game or expand on the existing storyline and characters.

A pretty successful Game, which I enjoyed for a long time. Borderlands is a Mix of Shooter and Role-playing. The Story is about the Hunt for the so-called Chamber, a Kind of alien treasure trove on the Planet Pandora. During this Hunt one is accompanied by some Main Characters, for Example the funny (but also slightly annoying) robot CL4P-TP, also called Claptrap. The Story is really well incorporated into the Game area at the Beginning, later you often only run to an Area for a single Mission. I feel like that there also the Number of individual Missions is decreasing. Often just a story mission and few Side Missions. More on these: In addition to the Main Story, there are quite a few smaller Missions, some of them are related, some are just simple Tasks like "Kill this Person." Often they are funny, but sometimes in the Long run they become somewhat monotonous. In itself, the Game has a (from my Point of view) pretty funny humor. Partly totally pointless, stupid or macabre, there is often something to laugh about, at least for those who like this Kind of Humor. The Game world basically consists of post-apocalyptic Elements. Rough Desert Landscapes where Scrap mountains tower up, Bandit villages, mountain and Ice Landscapes shape the Face of Pandora. Everything is in a comic it graphic Style. Personally, I had to get used to it first. One can play as four different "Classes," as a Soldier who can put up a Gun, as well as a Hunter who can send his "Bird of prey" to attack Enemies. Plus, there's the Siren, which can (simply put) make itself invisible, and the Berserker attacking Enemies with bare Fists (and pretty clean in the process). You can level and improve the Characters as the Game progresses. Borderlands is most Fun in Multiplayer, where up to 4 Players are possible. In Principle, the Game is also a lot about Looting. Almost everywhere there are containers around that can be opened. In Multiplayer, therefore, it can sometimes happen that all Players want to run to Loot Chests as quickly as possible and grab the Weapons. It's best, you play with Friends and talk to who gets what Guns. From that point of View, you find enough anyway. The Music of the Game contributes to its Atmosphere, often keeps discreetly in the Background (if any). First of all, the Game. Borderlands can't really be compared to another Game (I know), so just take a look. As a Numb, this results in: Graphic: 7/10 Story: 7/10 Characters: 9/10 Environment and Environment: 8/10 Atmosphere: 9/10 Total: 8/10 Now to the Extensions, of which there are 4. "Dr. Nds Zombie Island" adds an Island where creepy Things happen. Who hasn't guessed it now: It's robo ninjas. Of course not, it's Zombies! Where they come from, together with the slightly suspect Dr. Ned, you have to find out. Grim atmosphere, and I don't think the Story is bad either. "The Secret Armory of General Knoxx" is about the aspiring General Knoxx of the Crimson Lance. The Expansion promises plenty of Loot, as does a "secret" Boss who is the highest Level (61) and who is best defeated with 4 Players. But everyone should find out for themselves. What I like are the well-known Characters we meet again (E.g. Mad Moxxi, Scooter, Marcus). Personally, I think this Enlargement is the best, as it is quite large. "Mad Moxxi's Underdome" adds an arena mode. You can face the Hordes of Enemies in different Arenas. This is not even so easy and is highly recommended for the Multiplayer. After some Time, however, this can become a bit monotonous. In "Claptraps Robot Revolution," Claptrap seeks Domination. The Story is made with Humor and I liked it. In this Extension, there's a Room full Of Looding Chests that you can keep getting into. If you want to know how to do this, you should just play the Expansion. Another Point I think is very good is that Characters from the other Extensions are included here. Borderlands is a Game that plays well with Friends. If you like the Game, you have a lot of it. I can definitely recommend it.
I've completed this game around 10 times on the different platforms and I extremely like almost everything about this game: great visual style, really fun co-op mode and Diablo-like loot and level systems but in the action form.

Играл с большим запозданием, поэтому многие механики, поданные как новаторство, уже устарели. Однотипные враги, управление машиной а-ля "утюг на гладильной доске", отсутствие вменяемого сюжета могут вогнать в тоску. Но если рассматривать его как FPS-RPG, Borderlans - крепний середнячок, со своим стилем и шармом. 
«Game over at last!»
Моими любимыми комплуктерными забавами в школе были шутеры (типа Unreal и Quake, не типа Call of Duty или "Медалей за отвагу") и Дьябла 2. И, как любой подросток, я мечтал о том, чтобы кто-нибудь сделал что-то такое, где все мои любимые штуки были бы вместе. И в 2007 вышла Hellgate: London, настоящий дьябла-шутер (да ещё и от студии, основанной человеком, работавшим над самой дьяблой), с бОльшим уклоном в дьяблу, чем в шутер... про который почему-то все быстро забыли, и теперь в него в формате ММО играют только китайцы. А вот вышедшая спустя ещё два года Borderlands, которая каким-то чудом стала дико успешна и породила целую серию игр, хотя дьябла-составляющая в ней ещё меньше и сводится к системе процедурной генерации контента (пушек, которых там может нагенерироваться разных под три с половиной миллиона, прочих предметов и вариаций врагов), а шутерной едва ли больше. Визуальный стиль частично позаимствован у короткометражки Codehunters, а геймплейные идеи, по словам разработчиков, вдохновлены рогаликами типа Нетхака, Ультимой, Дьяблой, естественно, и старенькими шутерами. В общем, никаких откровений и озарений. Так в чём же секрет её успеха? А вот хрен бы знал. Но благодаря прекрасному дизайну локаций в почти открытом мире и этой самой системе процедурной генерации контента играется оно весело и способно создавать запоминающиеся, захватывающие, напряжённые или до одури нелепые и забавные ситуации, особенно в кооперативе. Для любителей такого рода веселья, само собой.
«Better With Friends»
Тысячи разнообразных пушек, тысячи врагов и трое друзей, что ещё нужно для того чтобы хорошо провести время? Не хватает разве что нормального сюжета. Да и юмор куда-то улетучивается к середине игры.
