Borderlands is a 1-4 multiplayer first person shooter where loot is collected in order to progress in the game, much like a dungeon crawler.
Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Addictive loot based gameplay
The loot in Borderlands is color coded to signal which loot is the most rare. This system of loot based collecting allows the user to always be on the hunt for more rare items, which can be addicting in the way it has been designed.
Pro Fun dungeon boss fights
Players can team up against dungeon bosses that are often large in scale and power making for fun tasks to complete that are separate from the main story tree.
Con Grind heavy
Late game and some DLC content require player to be higher level than you can get by simply completing every single side quest along the way.
Con Bullet-spongy enemies
Even with only one player present most middle-to-late game enemies can take multiple headshots with sniper rifle without as much as flinching.
Con No mini-map on screen
User will have to open the menu often in order to get their bearings as to where things are as there is no on-screen map, it is only in the menu. Having to pull up the menu so often for the map can be frustrating an immersion breaking.
