    Was just wondering if this game is ok to play on your own ?
    i sort of get the impression its more of a co-op game ?

    is it an RPG ?

    the only RPG game i liked was fallout3, am i likely to get on with this game ?

    its only going on my rental list so no big loss if i dislike it really.

    cheers.

    just watched a video of it.
    looked quite good really.

    looks more like a first person shooter than an rpg though.

    Yeah definitely more of a FPS. Has RPG elements, like loot collection and a small skill tree for each class of character.

    Definitely worth playing though, think it's a cracking game. Online co-op is a lot more fun and you get better loot rewards too.

    The map is big, but it is mainly full of nothing (driving time basically).

    Game time wise, fallout 3 is bigger. Borderlands has lots of quests, but say you have 10 then by the time you do 4 the other 6 are greyed out as you have leveled too high for them.

    It's pretty fun, starts quite slowly and can get a bit repetitive though.

    Its like a simple wow meets fps do quests, get loot, skill up. repeat.

    I just started playing this yesterday and its not bad seems like it might get a bit repetitive.
