Anyone care to speak up and give their personal account of their experience with borderlands? I'm on the fence (oh so witty) about just up and buying it.

I like it so far. Having a good time. I'd like to see how multiplayer is.. and how much replayability there is (i mean aside from.. "hey i'm only gonna use weapon type x and y this time through!" .. which btw i WILL do heh).. Aside from that though, I mean.. it's fun.. I get to feel rather ridiculously powerful sometimes.. buncha shit charging at me.. I pop off a shotty to one's face, phasewalk and land a melee attack setting them all on fire, then empty my shotgun before switching to the repeater pistol and making them all explode (if they're miraculously still alive)..

Really it comes down to HOW you play. I'm sure you can pick a few of the more powerful weapons and just tear shit up.. but I like a challenge so..

I'd think that the different skill trees and characters would provide the replay value.

I think it's very fun and enjoyable.  The skill trees will make for replayability for sure, and every character plays considerably differently.  I have a Brick file and a Roland file, and I can't play the same way on both of them at all - this adds replayability as well, imo.

There really ARE a ton of guns, many of them crappy.  There are lots of quests to do, and you can spend about 5-6 hours in the first "zone" before moving on.

I'm not sure at this point if it's worth 50 bucks, but it was definitely worth 33.
