Ah finally figured out why I did not get the Mecromancer
The Best Character in Borderlands
With awesome loot
Completely destroy your enemies in 50 different ways
Funny and colorful characters
The only game you would want to buy DLCs for
BLands 2 is way better than the original
But I suggest playing through the first one so you can fully enjoy the second
It's similar to Deus Ex in the way you have a variety of choices in the way you handle different situations. You can choose to be a kill a guy or to be sneaky and such. Story seems to be lackluster, although I heard that it had some plot points strangely similar to The Last Story on Wii.
You also get the main characters hat for TF2 if you buy the game on Steam.
So the gameplay would also be comparable to Assassin's Creed wherein certain missions or objectives allow for sneakin' and stabbin' or outright open combat (though hopefully deeper)?
