Borderlands was discussed on the most recent Major Nelson podcast - it sounds like they're all having a blast with the game, as they give it quite resounding recommendations!  They love the style, the co-op play, the guns, and the personality and flavor the game has.  "It's one of the best co-op experiences since Halo3" sounds pretty good to me!

Gamespy Review

10.21.09 - Allison

Here is Gamespy's review of Borderlands - 4/5!

 

 

 

"The accessible nature of Borderlands -- with its relatively non-punitive deaths, constant checkpoints, and convenient fast-travel systems -- makes it a fantastic game for introducing FPS fans to some basic RPG tropes. And, most importantly, the killing and looting never ceases to be fun."

Gamespot's Borderlands review is up - check it out!

 

 

 

 

"Combat is satisfying, and upgrading your skills and equipment is engaging. The constant stream of loot and experience is rewarding, and sharing it with some friends makes the experience that much richer and more exciting. Despite its hostile (albeit stylish) environment, Pandora is a great planet to visit if you want to shoot some stuff. Just be sure to bring some friends along for the ride."

Shacknews Review

10.20.09 - Allison

The Shacknews review of Borderlands is up!  Chris Faylor gives us his impressions of the final game, and can't stop playing it!

 

 

 

"Above all else, Borderlands really nails the feeling of character progression, of ever-increasing power. It feels like every quest, from gunning down an enemy to gathering the scattered pieces of a revolver, actually matters."

Game Informer: 9.25!

10.20.09 - Allison

Game Informer has given Borderlands a 9.25, and their "second opinion" score is 9.5!  Read the entire review here!

 

 

 
 
"This is one of the rare occasions where all of the new experiences a game brings to the table work out splendidly, especially when viewed as an entire package. Co-op is a blast, the variety of weaponry lends an addictive quality to the game that's rarely seen, and it maintains a distinct sense of humor and personality. It's a long-lasting experience that manages to stay fresh throughout, and the ability to easily jump into a friend's game at any time only lengthens the appeal of an already stellar title."

G4TV Review

10.19.09 - Allison

Here is the G4TV review of Borderlands!

 

 

 

 

"Do you love loot? Does the thought of items dropping from the blood-spurting corpses of fallen enemies get your gaming juices flowing? If so, I’ve got a game to tell you about. Gearbox’s Borderlands is a four-player co-op “role-playing shooter” that generates guns randomly, much like an MMORPG or games like Diablo. Players will advance through 50 character levels, all the while grabbing new guns and gear."

TeamXbox: 9/10!

10.19.09 - Allison

TeamXbox has posted their Borderlands review, which you can check out here!

 

 

 
"I’m also glad it got a face lift well enough ahead of the game’s release, so it didn’t just blend into the background. Borderlands is one of the year’s most enjoyable games, and I highly recommend it—even to those who may not like shooters or RPGs, because there’s a lot to like from this interesting hybrid."

GamePro Review!

10.19.09 - Allison

GamePro has posted their Borderlands review, enjoy!

 

 

 

 

"On my way to fight a hulking maniac called Sledge, one of Borderlands' boss baddies, a bandit's arm is ripped from his shoulder by my pet bird; my explode-on-impact grenade turns a frightening trio of "midget psychos" into spaghetti sauce; and my acid rounds disintegrate a steroid-pumping, shotgun-wielding thug. I am a badass. Borderlands is badass."

Kotaku Borderlands Review

10.19.09 - Allison

They don't give scores, but Kotaku has posted their review of Borderlands.  Check it out for an overview of their likes and dislikes!

 

 

 
 
"Borderlands gets a lot of things right, in particular the balance between being a first-person shooter and being a role-playing game. The shooting mechanics are sound, as are many of the role-playing aspects, save for a few design quirks."

1up Review: B+

10.19.09 - Allison

1up has given Borderlands a B+ in their review - check out what they have to say here!

 

 

 
"Whatever you designate it, Borderlands is a decent single-player FPS/RPG that simply becomes great -- when playing with others. Besides, sheer midget panic is something that has to be shared with friends."

Destructoid Review: Great!

10.19.09 - Allison

Destructoid gives Borderlands an 8.5, which is "Great!" on their review scale.  Check out the full review here!

 

 

 
"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. Even when I feel that the game is starting to get repetitive, there's something about it that keeps me playing. Even my plans to jump into the game for five minutes to grab screenshots would suddenly turn into hour long play sessions without me even realizing it, and even having done most of the quests twice, I still want to head back and try again with a new character class."

"Borderlands' blend of first-person shooting and role-playing works because it puts the shooting first, resulting in a satisfying action game with enough depth and skill development to keep you hooked for 50 hours or more."

IGN Review: 8.8

10.19.09 - Allison

IGN has posted their in-depth review of Borderlands, and have given it an 8.8, a great score!

 

 

 
"With the opportunity for up to four to join together for co-operative play, four character classes, a dizzying array of firearms, around 20 or so hours of content for a single playthrough and the option to restart with stronger enemies and loot, there's plenty of content here. It's a thoroughly enjoyable journey that offers a steady stream of rewards that remains convenient and accessible."
