Borderlands is an open world "space/western" shooter with multiplayer as a high priority. It takes place on the wild planet of Pandora and you, and friends, work together to take down the ever-sarcastic Handsome Jack. Borderlands is popular for its unique cell-shaded style that sets it apart from other releases.
Concerning visuals its filled with vast panoramic views (which any open world game should have) and takes place in all kinds of environments--from icy tundras to futuristic cities. From what I've seen it really looks like the developers went the extra mile to refine the tone and atmosphere of the game through the subtle details in the environment.
Next up is gameplay. Similarly to BL1, it’s a futuristic shooter with strange guns and abilities. It doesn't have anything that particularly sets it apart when it comes to the combat other than the hectic teamwork that is required when playing with
The aspect that catches me most in this game is its unique and entertaining personality. The characters display characteristics that make the game really enjoyable. The main villain, Handsome Jack, is the most self-centered, cocky, and mocking person you'll have ever met. Throughout the game, Jack is constantly communicating with you only to tell you the latest sarcastic insult he's thought of. Through details like this, the developers have really refined the tone of this lost and unforgiving planet where bandits rule and every man fights for himself.
