Mac|Life has posted a new review of Borderlands from Feral Interactive. The unique title combines elements of role playing games and first person shooters to provide a unique gaming experience. Mac|Life gave the game a score of 3.5 out of 5.

From the review:

The role-playing elements keep things interesting—at the start of the game, you’ll choose from one of four vault hunters, each with unique abilities and specializations, like erecting an automated turret that can additionally provide cover, deploying a bird known as “Bloodwing” to hunt nearby enemies, or phase-walking between enemies to outflank them, then rushing in and pummeling away. As the game progresses, you’ll earn talent points to spend on expanding those skills.

Borderlands’ chief strength lies in its presentation. While it involves a certain amount of grinding as you take on quests to unravel the mystery of the vault, this is laid out in a beautifully cel-shaded, cartoonish style that never fails to appeal. This, combined with great audio and vocal work, a zillion different weapons to pick up, and the game’s sense of humor, keeps you coming back, even when it’s way past your bedtime.
