I mentioned in the Borderlands 2 IGN review comments section, but I suppose I'll ask here also: When I see RPG/FPS I think Deus Ex/Bioshock. I loved System Shock co-op, wondering will I get a similar experience?

Absolutely and irrefutably no.

While those games would be considered RPG/FPS games, this is more FPS/RPG. If that makes any sense. Shooter first, RPG a distant second. More akin to Diablo as a first person shooter than any sort of deep involved RPG experience.

Ahh... I see. I hate it when reviewers and members of the game dev community like to throw around words like "RPG elements" and the like for terms which don't even exist. I'd like to call those more like advanced-FPS games. (I don't want to hear "RPG" mentioned plz)

I have always considered 'RPG elements' things like xp and levels, skill/stat boosts, etc... If you're looking for the story 'RPG elements', try some indie titles, as it rarely makes it into the AAA space... regarding FPS' that is...
