Should I buy or should I go?
Hey fellow bombers, I've got a question for you since I'm kind of on the fence on this one.
Recently, I found Borderlands for around 249 SEK (~34USD / 26€) in a local store, brand new copy. My issue though is that none of my friends play this as far as I know, and I would therefore be playing it on my own (assuming I can't convince a friend to buy it too).
Would I get my moneys worth with it? I've been interested in it for quite a while, but wasn't ready to put down $60 for it when it was new. But now that it's gone down quite a bit, it's looking more attractive to me, so to speak.
I don't know if I would have blew $60 on it either. There are actually very few games that I would really say have been worth $60 to me. But for that $34 bucks. That is a good deal. I have been playing through my Steam version that I got for $10.49 about a month ago and have been really enjoying myself.
Just make sure you are into the whole "looting" thing. That is a huge part of this game, and I can imagine that if you are not a huge fan of that, or just don't care much, this game might not be as fun. But personally, it is funny, full of personality and generally just an interesting and different experience. I am really happy they decide to go for the cartoon-ish look, gives the game some extra distinction and allows it to be more fantasy based and less reality oriented or worried about explaining how things happened because it is almost assumed that this is a cartoon so anything is possible mentality.
I actually thought the game was very overrated. If you want loot hunting / dungeon crawler / exp. grinding, there are far better games out there.
That's not to say I wouldn't buy it.. But at this stage, I'd hold off. Chances are they'll release a GoTY version with all the expansions shortly.
I've played most of the game by myself and have mostly had a great time doing so. The online portion is fun with strangers. Online is super laggy when I join games however, so I always end up hosting.
