Today I’ve bought Borderlands. I don’t know why, exactly. I switched on the Xbox, fully expecting to be playing some The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. Then I saw the ad for some Borderlands 2 stuff, and I thought that I hadn’t played a good shooter in a long time. The old game was available for download and cheap ($19), and I had been thinking of Jet Set Radio for a while. The cell shading mesmerized me. Now that I’ve played it for a bit, I’m sensing boredom around the corner because of the repeated “get quest, move there, fight, move back…” (I must admit that I have the flu, so that might explain it all.)
I really enjoyed playing Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter 1 & 2. What would you recommend? The review I read about Future Soldier basically said that the best part was mutliplayer online gameplay – something I’m not planning to engage in.
Back in the days I also liked Medal of Honor: Frontline. There was a mission on a train, however, that proved to be too much for me. I was frustrated and never finished it.
I guess I’m spoiled!
I’m just happy that Borderlands doesn’t keep spewing forth enemies like the Call of Duty games. I hate it when the game forces me to advance instead of letting me pick off enemies from a distance before moving in.
One thing I really like right now is the soundtrack.
