Borderlands is a sci-fi, fantasy-like game, with add-ons extending it to a somewhat Horror/Thriller extent. Placed in the background of Pandora, you are a Vault-Hunter. Looking for the treasure's in a rumored vault that's nothing more than mere legend, which you have no idea as to the whereabouts of it. When you arrive at your starting point, you meet a small robot named ClapTrap, who guides you to the town of Fyrestone, from there you embark on many quests leading you closer to the vault.

There are four classes, Soldier, Hunter, Berserker, and Siren. Each one possesses a unique ability that compliments their fighting styles, E.G. high strength low defence, deploying a unit to fight while you take cover, going into a mode where you are void of damage. These benefit to the games gameplay.

With an extensive weapon armory at your disposal, this game makes you have many choices about deciding what you use, and how you use it. Another great thing about this game is its exploring capabilities, as in one area extends to a certain point with a certain level max on the area, limiting certain quests, and lowering the load rate, thus reducing the risk of freezing the game. With many quests and a high level cap, it makes for hours of entertainment.

This game deserves an overall 4.7 out of 5.
