Arrow Official Borderlands Feedback Thread

Ok so it appears the game is unlocked now for those who bought a retail copy.

I made a new thread since the other is 11 pages long with no impressions

I am on the fence with this one. The console guys at teamxbox.com compared it to Far Cry 2 in terms of game play and content apart from the variety of weapons available.

Yeah, the steam forums are filled with complaints about that.

Usually the only time you see a bunch of forum posting are for complaints

I am annoyed at the wait, but at least I will be able to play tomorrow (today?)

And people who got a retail copy early. It happens all the time, I used to get games early almost every release.

It looks ok... im an fps and an rpg fan, but I think i'll pass on this one. Frankly it looks exactly like fallout 3 (Seriously, the models look the same) except the gameplay is much different, and there is a shader to make it look all cartoony.

I'm awaiting dragons age. I was put off by the earlier footage but the latest stuff and the combat looks to be a+ stuff.

Same here. Don't feel like playing a Fallout3/FarCry2 game with cartoon graphics. Dragon Age looks to be nice and deep.
