Borderlands, the wasteland love child of 2k Games and Gearbox software is probably one of the best co-op games to grace the Sony PlayStation.
Whether you are looking for a first-person shooter or a huge role-playing game, Borderlands will have a lot to offer you. Picture a damned landscape, seething with grotesque mutant creatures and the clinically insane and you are halfway to the game that is offered. Not only can you run, kill, and level up, but you can also hunt down all those weapons you have always craved, my personal favourite being the caustic sniper rifle. Yes, a caustic sniper rifle.
The game even goes to the lengths to offer the player their own decision to how they would like to play it. Whether you are a close combat expert having honed your skills over the years through Tekken and Mortal Kombat or you are a skilled and efficient sniper having trowelled through the online escapades of COD; Borderlands will have a character for you. Just as you would expect from a massive role-playing game, your initial decision will allow your player to branch out to the exact character that you want to be, even allowing you to pick the abilities that you want to focus on.
I must admit that the game leaves a lot lacking for single player mode, especially for the novice gamer who may struggle at first with the speed of levelling up. But, with a partner or a lot of patience you will begin to enjoy the violent and sadistic nature of the game.
Be ready to be addicted because once you find your favoured weapon or class or even shield, you will always be wanting more and as you level up, so do the enemies and the weapons you will find. Soon you will be hunting through even single safe and doing every single mission just to find that elusive weapon you are after in order to complete your malignant arsenal.
I would thoroughly recommend this game to anyone who has a good friend who you spend a lot of time playing the PlayStation as it is a much better and far more addictive way to spend your time than on a similar co-op game such as Resident Evil.
Summary: An excellent co-op game made for the gamer who loves to sit in for the long sessions
