View Full Version : On the fence about this game

The more I look into this game, the more I think I might want to pick it up. Everyone seems to be raving about it, but I'm gonna be buying plenty of games in the next 6 months, I don't want to pick up a game that I'm not going to like alot, so I've got a few questions for those who have played it, or will play it soon.

Games I've played and loved in recent history include:
Fallout 3
Half-Life 2
Mass Effect
I've been enjoying more FPS lately, more than I used to.

Anyone that's played it, care to guess how much I might like Borderlands?

Fallout 3, Half-Life 2, and Mass Effect are good. Will I like Borderlands?

ps, I've heard mention of possible freezing issues. Is this a widespread thing? Or nothing to worry about? Granted it will probably be fixed in a patch soon if its a real issue.

From what I've seen of the game and the games you listed, it does seem like a game you'd like.

You could always go about renting it though.

if you like those games then you'll like borderlands.

Borderlands is a true FPS. it's not like fallout where even your shooting is RPG style.

So shooting wise, it's more like mass effect and half life 2. The RPG aspect is the skill tree and the 17 million guns.

Sounds to me that you'd like it. But if your unsure, then rent it or borrow it from someone.
