    The more I look back on Borderlands, the more it looks like a very good but somehow underdeveloped (conceptually) game. I enjoyed it, but it missed the mark in lots of small ways for me.

    I missed the first Borderlands, i was put off by how bad it supposedly was in single player.

    Oh definitely, there are loads of little tweaks they could do to improve it.

    Loved BL cant wait to play more as a co-op game there hasn't really been anything better this gen on the consoles.

    I used to be a gamer like you, then I took an arrow in the knee.

    Bad in single player? I've pretty much played the entire game in single player. I guess its like minecraft, its just hard to go back to single player after multi.

    Looking back I slap myself for playing this through in single player. What was I thinking?

    Won't make the same mistake with the sequel.

    Hoping for good things!

    I had a blast with it in single-player. I've only played a tiny bit of multi, but it's still one of my favourite games of the generation. I've no idea where the whole "it's rubbish on your own" thing comes from.

    Yup, i've only ever played SP Borderlands and it's fantastic.

    Exactly. I barely touched it in multiplayer, but it was a hoot on singleplayer as it was. I hope Scooter's back in this. I didnt even mind the claptraps that much.

    I loved raking through all my loot to spot minor variations on them all. I had some great element-enhanced SMG's and sniper rifles.

    I sold it as i just didn't have enough time to play it more after the campaign finished and i'd messed about with other characters as my game stack was growing. I missed it though and really wish I'd kept it to use the time in the summer drought period to give the DLCs a go.

    That's ages away, yet. Get the first one. It's a brilliant single player game.

    About £12 for the Game of the Year edition recently. That's a shitload of content for silly money.
  • Deleted user 2 August 2011 16:02:03
    Hmm i'll have a gander. Is it just grinding because that could be repetive.

    Borderlands was great on SP, and even better on 4-player co-op (only with friends, mind). One of my favourite games ever and super pumped at the prospect of a sequel. I just hope Gearbox stick to what made BL so awesome and focus on tweaking the annoyances and irritants.

    I think Knoxx added about 30 hours onto my gaming time. Its pretty huge, hope they support BL2 post launch with DLC that's just as good. May be slightly getting ahead of myself here though. Ha.

    It worked for me as a SP and MP. Best game of 2010 for me.

    Wonder who will return in BL2?

    Pretty much all the characters are dead right?

    I played mainly SP, you really needed to get a good team online, and mostly thats just luck. I did however get really lucky and got partnered up with some very cool people that helped me out a lot with the bosses. Some of the coolest and most helpful players i have played with online i met playing Borderlands. Oh and Demons Souls to.

    To be honest, I probably enjoyed Borderlands more in SP. It was fun in co-op but there was very little in the way of actual co-operative play needed, beyond the enemies turning into ridiculous tanks. Not to mention a horrible framerate hit on the Xbox version and the hassle with mismatched quests between players. There is plenty of room for improvement in the sequel.

    It's not that it's rubbish on your own, but that is really is light years better in multiplayer. I've played a significant amount of both, and most of the multiplayer I did was in split screen. Went through the whole lot in split screen with a mate, it ranks among my favourite EVER gaming experiences.

    I'm playing it in multiplayer at the moment and it's a lot of fun, but extremely samey. It basically involves going to a waypoint and shooting a load of monsters, then doing the same in another area. Too often the monsters are identical too. The story is also pap, and I've largely decided to forget about it now and just keep on killing and hoarding guns.

    Sequel is definitely welcome tho :)

    Split screen is bliss.

    If you can read this you really need to fiddle with your forum settings.
