I'll modify my statement now that I've played most of the day. It's addictive, but it's also getting frustrating. The missions are getting harder, and I can't seem to get ahead of the curve. If I was playing co-op, it would probably help. I also keep spending too much money replenishing my ammo and health packs, and the really good items cost a ton. Also, I spent a lot of skill points upgrading my turret's firing power, but even maxed out it's not all that effective anymore. I suppose it does still distract some of the enemies when there are a ton of them, but it would be nice if it was dealing greater damage. I can pay to reset and reassign all of my skill points, but that costs a lot, too. Respawning also costs money, so yeah, there are always things keeping me from getting the best items available.

I don't really know where the story is going. So far it's just a bunch of missions with no discernible connection, but there's a Cortana-like female presence who communicates every once in a while, so I know it's going somewhere.

My character is only up to level 16. My nephew is at level 32. He and my brother-in-law have been playing it a lot, I guess, and it sounds like they're getting as frustrated as I am. Here's hoping we find ways to make it easier.


Make sure you accept and complete every mission, especially in the begining of the game. If you don't, you won't level up enough and your character will be underpowered once you get further into the game.

One other thing to note: the mission difficulty levels are "Trivial, Easy, Normal, Tough, Hard, Impossible". Don't make the same mistake I made. I though missions rated "Hard" were easier than missions rated "Tough", and I couldn't figure out for the life of me why I was constantly getting killed on a certain mission.

And yes, playing the game with friends helps. I've been playing with two of my friends and while the game does get difficult at times, it hasn't been frustrating (besides for the one time when I took on the "Hard" mission instead of the "Tough" mission).

I've been doing accepting all of the missions that I can, but I've had difficulty completing some, like the one where I'm supposed to retrieve TK's leg from Scar. I killed Scar, so I completed that part of the mission, but I died immediately afterward. I can't seem to locate the leg now. I'll have to figure that out at some point.

Oh yeah, Bioshock 2 is not that far way 02/09/10 and Modern Warfare 2 is right around the corner


Holy smokes I didn't know there was a Bioshock 2 coming... STOKED for that one!

Indeed! I can't wait to wrap my senses around that one. Modern Warfare should deliver as well. You mentioned Forza 3 in the other thread - Holy cow! That came looks awesome. I will have to check it out. All must plays in my book.

I'm playing Borderlands now thanks to your recommendation \:\) . I'm a Level 11 Hunter and have done that mission. The leg (for me) wasn't at the waypoint marker but was in the general area...so keep looking!

Since I finally got my xbox back from repair last night I had to run out and grab Forza Motorsport 3. Very good game! I am on my second week of career mode and am hooked.

Anyone get Dragon Age: Origins yet? Looks good so I'm thinking of picking it up.

Zarak, If you get it let me know what you think because I have been thinking about playing that one as well.

However, I just bought Forza 3, uncharted 2, and am buying modern warfare2 next week so that is $180 in less than a month... I will likely wait to get dragon age and borderlands, or just rent them.

I hate how you go from having no good games to 5 or 6 to choose from around Christmas time.

I guess I'll be getting the PC version of Dragon Age: Origins if I get it: Dragon Age: Origins - PlayStation 3 Versus PC (Kotaku)
