Which was more in line with the way other sci-fi shooters looked at the time. The game had its official launch in 2009, it might have as well been a completely different game. Gone are the complex 3D rendered graphics and replaced by something else. Something that the developers refer to as "concept art style". A style that's akin to cel-shading and is a visual style not seen much on first-person games. Gearbox's - makers of the game - gamble paid off. Apart from the drastic art style, the game is also responsible for the birth of a new genre in shooters.
