    Yeah it can be but its still a blast to play. If you do get it make sure you get the Game Of The Year Edition. Its even more fun in a 4 player co-op online.

    It's a great game, but it's made 10x better if you have people to co-op the game with. I don't remember any boring grinds

    Oh and just for future reference, post stuff about specific games in their separate forums (if there is one of course ) PS3 Games

    The only thing about this game I would consider a grind is if you're trying to get the level 50 trophy by just killing enemies. If you play all the way through the game, doing all the quests, then do "Playthrough 2" doing either just the main storyline or all the quests again, you hit level 50 easily. The major grind is the Moxxi DLC, which is just a series of arena wave battles. Definitely get a group together for those. I did one by myself, and man was it tedious.

    level fifty is the only thing that could be considered a grind but you can get into a game with high level guys and let them kill everything for you and youll level up quickly, you could also go on some crawmerax runs with some experienced players for lots of xp and loot

    That is the best reply I have read in a long time, one of my all time game's. Matter of fact I'm about to help Ac3duD3 run thru to get his platinum.
    Couldn't even tell you how many hour's I spent just do crawmerax run's, however moxis underdome is shit and a really really boring survival wave style dlc. My favorite had to be zombie island.

    Like above, its a great game and well worth playing, it'll also get you ready for Borderlands 2 later this year if you enjoy it. Moxxi's is pretty boring if you do it solo though, hours of repetative waves.

    The only "grind" in the the game would be the Moxxi DLC where you kill wave after wave of enemies while she repeats the same dialogue ...and the Claptrap DLC where you have to collect bobbleheads/pizza that are just random drops.The other 2 DLC's and the game was alot of fun.

    Borderlands is a great game, but you will not have a lot of fun if you play by yourself. As others have said, definitely find at least a partner, if not a group.

    The grinding is really only an issue in the DLC packs. The Underdome tournaments take a minimum of 3 hours apiece, with no checkpoints. In the Claptrap DLC you basically have to leave your PS3 on overnight to farm the collectibles.

    I wouldn't consider anything to be a grind going for the . It's a blast, especially with multiple players. The only thing that sticks out in my mind is the Mad Moxxi's Underdome trophies. Those seem to take forever and was the only point in the game I didn't have too much fun playing. All other 3 of the DLC' are top notch though.

    Agree here. I had alot of fun with the game except for Moxxi's Underdome (hence why its not completed yet). In honesty I didn't have to do much grinding. Or maybe its more like it was so much fun I didnt notice the grinding that occured. You will need to play at least 1 1/2 playthroughs but if you loved it the first go through you will still love it the second!
