PNG Audio Review – Borderlands 


Welcome to our very first audio review.  In this episode we sit down and chat about Gearbox Software’s newest game, Borderlands.  If you can’t listen to the audio file for reasons such as being at work, your parents are in the room, or you’re deaf, we’ve included a sentence or two of our impressions after the break along with our individual grades.  This is also being put up on our podcast feed so feel free to subscribe via the link to your right.  If you just want the file, right-click on the link and then “Save target as”.  Enjoy our mini Bro-down with BRO-derlands. 


Intro is Cage the Elephant – Ain’t No Rest for the Wicked
Outro is No Heaven – Champion

Both tracks are music found in the game.

Grade: A

From the moment the intro starts with its dirty slide guitar music (intro to this review) and beautiful cel-shaded graphics, you’ll find yourself hooked.  While I have never done crack before, I can imagine this game being the digital equivalent.  I enjoyed all of the random loot, the frantic multiplayer, and crazy fire fights.  While the customization isn’t incredibly deep, it provides enough variety to keep you playing for hours on end.  The world is fleshed out extremely well along with the characters in the world (especially the little robots called Claptraps).  If you’ll excuse me, I need to light up that Xbox and smoke another rock of Borderlands.

This game kept me from playing with myself for 4 days… that’s how good it is.

Borderlands has been the single best experience since birth for me.

  1. I’m pretty sure Borderlands is not a good video game. I’m trying really hard to like it, but I think you guys might just be wrong.

  2. Us along with at least 40 other sites on the internet and in print that gave it at least an 80 over at Metacritic are wrong? I can understand it not being your cup of tea, but that’s a little harsh sir!
