IMG Reviews Borderlands: Game Of The Year Edition
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Inside Mac Games has posted a new review of Feral Interactive's Borderlands: Game of the Year Edition. The unique title combines elements of role playing games and first person shooters to provide a unique gaming experience.

Here's an excerpt from the review:

There is a sort of free roaming linearity to Borderlands in that you can only go so far before you have to complete a specific story mission to unlock the next area, but every "level" is vast and asking to be explored for loot and side missions. You are also free to travel to and from any current area you can access, which works well since certain areas are particularly entertaining to play in. You can zoom around in vehicles, or use the fast travel system to instantly teleport to different locations.

Throughout the story different NPCs will give you missions, which range from the serious to the silly. You may have to slay the leader of a bandit camp in one instance, but the next task requires you to shoot bird droppings off a windmill. This sort of light hearted humor pervades Borderlands, and it fits well the mood it aims to set. A few characters really stand out such as the foul-mouthed mechanic Scooter, and the insane scientist Patrica Tannis.
