A sci-fi/action RPG from acclaimed developer Gearbox, Borderlands combines the best in first-person shooter (FPS) action gaming with elements of a traditional role-playing game (RPG).

    Just wanted to mention that this product does activate on steam, steam seems to like it better when you take the dashes out of the key.

    What a way to ruin a great game.

    The DLC add-on content, which is really the only reason to buy this version of the game, is NOT included on the disc. Please note: You get a 1 time download of the content, then the codes become invalid! If your computer crashes, you have install problems, want to install on a different computer, or for any reason at all you need to re-install the DLC content, you’re out of luck!

    I quote “These codes will become invalid after use…A new code cannot be provided, nor can data be guaranteed or restored in the event of a failed unlock or the loss of data due to a hardware malfunction.”

    EDIT 05/19/2012

    I has been some time since my original review. I never did install the DLC’s (scarcity effect), although I did try to activate unsuccessfully through steam (apparently my code predates Steam/2kgames cooperation). Anyway, someday I may use my 1 use download because this is an awesome game.

    I decided to give the game 2 stars (instead of 1) because some people are able to activate through steam.

    As far as fun goes, 5 stars! This is a kick butt shooter/rpg with lots of replayability. I re-installed the game after finishing it over a year ago and find myself enjoying it nearly as much the 2nd time around. I have a character build for each of the 4 different available classes and find myself re-experimenting with their different playing styles.

    Given its new price point under 15 dollars, I’d say its a great deal. Given that I paid a lot more and get 1 download of the dlc’s, my rating of 2 stars stands.

    First off, the game Borderlands is an amazing game, very worth of purchase.

    This review is rating the PRODUCT, not the game.

    The product says that it includes all 4 DLC (Downloadable Content) packs. This couldn’t be further from the truth.

    Instead of actually including the software on the disc, like the Mad Moxxi’s Underdome Riot & The Zombie Island of Dr. Ned add-on pack, it instead gives you a link and a code to gearbox’s website, where it wants you to individually download all 4 of the DLCs (weighing in at approximately 1.5 to 2 GB per DLC, in .ZIP format).

    Now typically, I wouldn’t be too bothered with this, aside from having to wait about an hour or so for EACH DLC to download. However, I’m a service member deployed in Afghanistan. Given our already shoddy internet, it would take no less than 9 HOURS per DLC, and that’s assuming it will even download properly (I’m on try #3 with The Secret Armory of General Knoxx right now, 10 hours down the drain).

    If you’re going to advertise saying “This product contains the following content”, then it damn well better contain the aforementioned content, instead of a voucher saying “This really doesn’t have the content, but you can go here to get it!”.

    Again, Borderlands is a GREAT game, but this is a TERRIBLE product.
