Borderlands was discussed on the most recent Major Nelson podcast - it sounds like they're all having a blast with the game, as they give it quite resounding recommendations! They love the style, the co-op play, the guns, and the personality and flavor the game has. "It's one of the best co-op experiences since Halo3" sounds pretty good to me!
The PC version of Borderlands is available today, and we're the top seller on Steam! This is awesome! We're extremely glad that people have gotten wind of the game and are so interested! Don't forget that Steam is offering a Borderlands 4-pack at a discounted price - play with your friends for less!
"The accessible nature of Borderlands -- with its relatively non-punitive deaths, constant checkpoints, and convenient fast-travel systems -- makes it a fantastic game for introducing FPS fans to some basic RPG tropes. And, most importantly, the killing and looting never ceases to be fun."
Gamespot's Borderlands review is up - check it out!
"Combat is satisfying, and upgrading your skills and equipment is engaging. The constant stream of loot and experience is rewarding, and sharing it with some friends makes the experience that much richer and more exciting. Despite its hostile (albeit stylish) environment, Pandora is a great planet to visit if you want to shoot some stuff. Just be sure to bring some friends along for the ride."

The Shacknews review of Borderlands is up! Chris Faylor gives us his impressions of the final game, and can't stop playing it!
"Above all else, Borderlands really nails the feeling of character progression, of ever-increasing power. It feels like every quest, from gunning down an enemy to gathering the scattered pieces of a revolver, actually matters."
Game Informer has given Borderlands a 9.25, and their "second opinion" score is 9.5! Read the entire review here!
Here is the G4TV review of Borderlands!
"Do you love loot? Does the thought of items dropping from the blood-spurting corpses of fallen enemies get your gaming juices flowing? If so, I’ve got a game to tell you about. Gearbox’s Borderlands is a four-player co-op “role-playing shooter” that generates guns randomly, much like an MMORPG or games like Diablo. Players will advance through 50 character levels, all the while grabbing new guns and gear."
TeamXbox has posted their Borderlands review, which you can check out here!
GamePro has posted their Borderlands review, enjoy!
"On my way to fight a hulking maniac called Sledge, one of Borderlands' boss baddies, a bandit's arm is ripped from his shoulder by my pet bird; my explode-on-impact grenade turns a frightening trio of "midget psychos" into spaghetti sauce; and my acid rounds disintegrate a steroid-pumping, shotgun-wielding thug. I am a badass. Borderlands is badass."
