First Impressions: Borderlands

I just wasted 12 hours of my time playing Risen. So I thought I'd take a break from it and give Borderlands -a game which I've neglected since its release last Monday- a spin. Borderlands is a shooter/action-rpg that is set in a post-apocalyptic world. The first thing I noticed about the game is definitely its visuals. The art direction and the cell-shaded graphics just rocks, it's like a comic book in motion. The gameplay, however, is pretty much what I've expected it to be: quests, kill, reward. It would've been nice if they added some dialogue options. But, I guess, this is better than playing a standard shooter game. I hope the game gets better in its later levels. For the meantime, I have to finish Risen and then Dragon Age before I let this game entertain me.

I prefer Gamersgate and Impulse, much less intrusive DRM than both.
