With tons of weapons to find, a great co-op system, fantastic art, and a whole bunch of exploding bodies, Borderlands is worth your money.

The RPG-FPS hybrid gameplay works perfectly and playing the co-op mode online, the title takes off, ensuring many hours of fun. Combine this with its excellent graphics, in its way kind of unique too, and you'll understand the value of a fresh product, suitable for all those who love to spend their time online.

I rented it for Xbox360 yesterday, here is a quick rundown.

Take Fallout 3, use cartoony graphics(looks awesome IMHO in this setting) and make is less RPG and more FPS action.

There is lots of action, lots of weapons, it's a all out trigger fest until you hit lvl 11-13 where you will start being more carefull with the guns and ammo you use so you dont run out while doing missions. Controls are good however it's a little hard to snipe with the Xbox remote, the thumb trigger being a little to sensitive. The PC version should be easier to that regard by using a mouse.

There is rude language, gore, some dark humor and an ok story line so far. This wont win any Story of the year award but it's ok.

I cant wait to give this game a shot in Co-Op. It should be a blast. However since the loot system is free for all, I will play this only with friends, it'll make for a good 4-player Lan party game. Many of those lately.

The only major issue I have with the Xbox version is that i'm not very far in the game yet(lvl 16) and I have experience graphics lag numerous times already. This is something I'm sure will not be an issue with a good gaming PC. Otherwise the graphics are very nice, nice colors, alot of effects with the guns. I ended up using a weaker sniper rifle for a while just because it had a flame effect/damage on the target and I was having tons of fun with it, I stopped using it at some point because it was too weak to waste ammo with it. Explosions are pretty and plentyfull, body parts flying around sometimes, all good stuff.

It's on my "To buy" list for sure for PC when it comes out for PC.

Steam is letting me pre-load it now. If you bought it, spark up Steam and beat the rush.
