Cool cover art – sadly that’s how I sometimes feel when I’m playing Borderlands. BL was pulling big punches as an FPS / RPG hybride, a sweet 4 player co-op title, and just a massive title in general. Then came the drastic art style change in the middle of development. This wasn’t a small change by no means, this completely altered the look of the game. A look that, honestly, I was not a fan of when first seeing but has slowly grown on me as a standout style. Overall I’m not disappointed with Borderlands I’m still logging in hours but after getting over the bazillion guns, art style, co-op and FPS/RPG mix, I’m left with a feeling of something is missing to making this post-apocalyptic/Mad Max title perfect….
