Just another game about a time-traveling detective who deflects knives by spitting bubblegum at them as they fly through the air at full speed. Yep, just another game...

I had planned to write something about the Borderlands series, but that will have to wait. I have something I need to get off my chest first. It's very personal, and I hope the two or three of you who follow my sparse blog will spare me this moment. I joked in my review for the bizarre...

When games marvel others by the sheer size of it's content, people usually get giddy over this. Everyone want's a game that can last a long time, but rarely a game can exceed over 400 hours of gameplay.

Yes, you heard me right. 400 hours of gameplay can probably only be found on Elder Scrolls 3, Morrowind GOTY edition for the X-Box. While the world is as big as Russia, including two expansions from the PC version, we have an exciting, although flawed, experience for RPG enthusists and gamers alike.

Graphics- The game is beautiful, with nice effects, maps, weapons, and decent looking enemies and NPCS. True, they are not the best graphics, but considering how big this game is, it's forgivable. The only downside is that the framerate dips ocassionally, and the game is prone to bugging out at randomly. Other than that, it is impressive.

Final Score- B+

Gameplay- The mere fact that you don't even have to follow the main quest is a plus, because there is SO much to do in this game. You can lie, cheat, steal, rob, murder, explore, swim, teleport, walk, hunt, and fight your way though towns, ruins, tombs, caves, lakes, and even mountains! Plus there are hundreds of them scattered all over the place, which means there is an individual challenge for you wherever you go. Not only that, we also have the quests from over 10 different factions, including the main quest. Then the expansions, which add more worlds, quests, monsters, items, spells, everything to the table. You can even turn into a vampire or a werewolf at certain parts, which is another challenging yet rewarding experience in the game. With so much crammed in one disk the game deserves to be called enourmus, and at the price of this there are a few nitpicks. The combat system is kind of weak, resulting in a lot of luck to hit your enemies. Also leveling up can be a pain sometimes, especially if your surrounded by 5 different monsters that can fillet you real quick. Not only that, but it is easy to get sidetrecked and lose focus, just because it is so huge. Also it is prone to glitches, which, thanks to an autosave feature it at least saves the game before the glitch occurs, but it is still annoying. A small price to pay for the game, but none the less an excellent way to make an interactive world.

Final Score- A

Sound- While there are few voices in the game and the music is kind of daft and heroic, the sound effects, from spells to weapons to creature cries, are top notch. Not to bad.

Final Score- B

Satisfaction- I love RPGS, and this is the longest RPG I have ever played. Hell, i'm still playing it at this point. If you want a game that can last a long time, that has immersive gameplay and good graphics and sound, this is your pick .If you don't like RPGs, stay far away, because chances are you won't like this. Hardcore RPGer's and gamers would love the length of this game, and if it wasn't as troublesome and annoying thanks to random deaths, glitches and other things going on, it would of been a higher grade from me.

Final Score- B+

Overall Score- B+
