This review is from: Borderlands: Game of the Year Edition - Playstation 3 (Video Game)
Right now I'm on an FPS kick, and so far I'm very much enjoying Borderlands GOTY edition.

This game is a shooter but also a "looter" - you go on missions and scavenge items (different weapons, ammo, cash, etc.) along the way. You drive some vehicles, too. I like the mix.

As you gain experience, your character (you can choose from four different types at the beginning of the game) becomes more powerful (similar idea to buffing up your character in the "Dead Space" games).

The AI for the bad guys also increases as the game progresses, so don't let the first few bandit encounters fool you.

One thing striking about this game is that it has a very different, stylized look - sort of like a comic book (restrained color palette and at times "2D")- check out the screenshots - it may or may not appeal to you.

Note that with Borderlands you do need to interact with your character's inventory and objective maps frequently - if you don't like fussing with those kinds of things, the game may not be for you.

This is one of the few shooting games where I had to stop and read the manual - once I did that it became a lot more enjoyable.

Glad I paid the extra bucks and got the "Game Of The Year" edition, which includes a number of add-on packs on the disc.
