Borderlands is a genre in itself, part RPG, part FPS, with a side of driving. You play as one of four characters, all with their own special techniques and stats as you try to find the "Vault", a legendary artifact said to contain countless riches. The game is set on the planet Pandora, an arid, desert world populated by vicious gangs reminiscent of Mad Max and deadly monsters.
-Pros: Seemingly infinite weapon combinations with added elemental effects allow for intuitive gameplay and prevents boredom, the vehicle physics are fun, and the game can be very long if played on harder difficulties. The graphics are very stylish, and the game has a great atmosphere. As of now there are 3 expansions, all of them adding new maps and features, extending the replay value of the game.
-Cons: Online play lacks teamwork, with each team member racing off to get the best weapon drops, and the gameplay can end up being repetetive on later levels.
