From the reviews and hype, this game is tempting, but I have to pass. Too many games to play, not enough time for them all, and more on the way so a game that wasn't on my must buy list has to wait till at least the first price drop.

Comparing this to Fallout 3 seems odd - while there are superficial aesthetic similarities, the gameplay and overall presentation is nothing like it at all. The graphics do not look "cartoony" at all when you're actually playing the game either. This game really has a unique feel to it. It's definitely a combination of several different types of games but they all come together very well. I only spent a couple hours on the X-Box version but it was enough to know I will not regret purchasing it.

Unfortunately can't even play the game for another 3 hours because of the weird Steam unlock time, but at least it's preloaded.

It's a coop-focused FPS with heavy action-RPG elements. Basically think of a mix of World of Wacraft questing and character development, Diablo-style loot and grouping, and FPS style shooting action and you have a basic idea of how the game plays. The visual style is highly stylized and fairly unique (cel-shading and slightly disproportionate characters give it a sort of comic-book feeling). The sound design, especially the weapon sounds and music, is top-notch and really thickens the game's atmosphere.

There are sure to be flaws with the game but I never saw any while I was playing.

I have this on the 360 because I wasn't sure I'd like it, but my friends are all playing it on the 360.

The game has a similar background to Fallout 3, but it's totally different in gameplay and story.

First off, Fallout 3 is in a post-nuclear war setting in the DC area of the US, along with some other areas in the Eastern US. Fallout 3 has a linear story, with tons of side quests and is very open and sandbox like. You make your character, take the skills you want as you go and level up. It's an RPG with some FPS elements. Where you hit or not is not based on twitch aim.

Borderlands is more of an action FPS with RPG elements like XP, getting loot, levelling and add training new skills that pertain to the character class you picked.

There's a soldier who can deploy turrets, a sniper chick and a melee juggernaut dude.

The game plays sorta like a MMO. You talk to NPC's get quests, kill these guys, grab these items, infilitrate this area and return to the quest giver. The quest giver then gives a quest to talk to more NPC's, who are spread out further.

The game takes place on another planet, not earth after the A-Bomb. It's just a wasteland. It borrows a lot from Madmax, but again, Madmax was on earth. There are "zones" in this game. Areas that you use an item and port into, then complete and port out. It's not one huge map like Fallout 3.

It's similar to Hellgate London in many ways, but better. It has that Diablo II type of feel. Kill tons of mobs, do quests, gain loot, sell loot, train new skills, etc.

The graphics look good in some spots, other times the shadows and NPC's looked kinda bad, but overall it's very stylized and it's a lot of fun.

Just don't expect a deep game like Fallout 3 where you can really customize your character do all that hacking/science/tinkering stuff you could in Fallout 3.

So was it worth the money? Is it as addictive as some are saying?
