Not as good as Borderlands 2, but still fun.RedkaKredka | May 8, 2015 | See all RedkaKredka's reviews »
SUMMARY (For lazy people) --------------------------------------- + Funny and nice characters + Funny texts and voice acting + Nice experience + Challenging maps, but some of them too small in my opinion + Many enemies + Enemies are tough + Low gravity and jetpack + Long jumps + GOOD VEHICLES! Better than previous games! + Moonstone drops more often than health - Price (too high for content) - No rewards for exploring maps - No hidden chests (except few) - When the chests are there it is so difficult to get to them, that You can't be bothered - $ Not enough cash $ - Horrible music, very annoying, repeatable - Not many healths - Not very rewardable - Physics doesn't work at times, or bugs in maps - Some missions are very annoying, not really having any sense - The end had a feeling of "Horde from Left4Dead" - Athina's skill tree is really chaotic - There is nothing to look forward to when replaying the game ADDITIONAL (For those who like to read) ---------------------------------------- The game is tense, on one side I like it, on the other - especially when mobs are respawning I hate it. Maybe because I do have weapons that are not powerful enough for my level (even tho I tried golden keys) Sometimes my shield goes down so quick and I really have no place to hide, because most of the maps are empty. I am also not sure why my shield is going down sometimes. My health goes down quick too. Well I never been so many times on my knees in any of Borderlands games. That makes game exciting but when You play longer it makes You tired. Distance between waypoints is too big (I mean the teleport). You might waste a lot of time, especially if You don't play long enough to go through mission, or from one waypoint to another. There are no rewards if You go to places that You shouldn't have to go (most of the times). There are not many weapon cases or toilets ;), a lot of ammo boxes. There are some bugs, gravity sometimes works strange. There are places where You can fall from the map (hole in the texture). I don't really understand why people say that it's like Borderlands 2. To be honest, its totally different. I also don't know why people say that conversations and story is lame and not well played. Either those people don't understand English or have no sense of humor at all. They are different guns (Laser, Freezing). There are different quests (So far Basketball quest was fun!). Interesting story (It is really interesting - Just saying). Obviously game is a lot smaller - B2 is 10 GB, Pre-Sequel - 5GB. I feel maps are a bit too small, compering to Borderlands 2. Do You remember electric fields that we had to shoot down to get into cases? I opened only one so far. I couldn't waste so much time to figure out the rest, when I can't get it within 5 min i just simply abandon them. Maybe I'm too much used to Borderlands 2, over there everything was a bit more simple. Challenging but doable. I have feeling like the sound for those JUMP PADS have sound from Portal 2 - seriously (those accelerators). Moonstones are dropping quite often, pretty much from anything. Not as Eridium. Eridium was really hard to find. All in all, I'm not disappointed. And despite all those things I said I really enjoy the game. It is a lot more challenging than Borderlands 2. You can't be bored in game, it's pushing You to go further. The action is really tense and You don't feel the time going. I recommend the game to people who can spend looooong evenings playing this game. SO FAR SO GOOD. I might add something after finishing game. UPDATE (After playing game experience) ---------------------------------------- 25 hours, thats how much took me from the beginning to the end. The end of the game fills like developers tried to rush to the end. Not many mission, very chaotic. The end was really hard. Tho I managed to go through it without dying, I've been on knees most of the times. I tried to get some good stuff from golden chest with golden keys. No luck - mostly crap. YET STILL I RECOMMEND THO FOR LOWER PRICE.

Huge HUGE fan of the first and second game. Those ones were works of art. Here's the gripe I have with the Pre-Sequel, it's basically BL2 in a different setting which isn't necessarily a bad thing but they could have done more. What's cool about this one is that your character actually talks and you feel like you are actually playing someone instead of a faceless person like the rest of the games. The oxygen mechanic is meh, O2 is easy to find and if you run out you die really slow so that isn't bad. If you like Borderlands you'll like this one!

Bigger does not necessarily mean better. The same is the case with this instalment into the Borderlands series. What most people might call, "A copy and paste of Borderlands 2" are not entirely wrong. If you have played Borderlands 2, you have played the Pre-Sequel. Graphically both are the same, and even so in gameplay. The only difference between the two titles is that this one takes place on the moon. Giving you the ability to double jump and glide around with your oxygen kits. A nice feature indeed. But with only a new story and new classes to back the rest of the game up, it does not feel that big of a jump to be worthy of its own title. Especially if the story does VERY little to add anything to the existing lore of the universe. Overall, this game is not a bad game...it was just disappointing. Just because Borderlands 2 was a huge success does not mean this game had to capitalize off of it without offering too many new features to the franchise.
Good game, but similarnightassassin1 | March 31, 2015 | See all nightassassin1's reviews »
I have loved the borderlands series since I first played it, but it has become repetitive in nature. This is your typical borderlands, but they tried to change the feel of it by adding the low gravity and an oxygen system to worry about. I don't care much for these changes as the oxygen is just a new thing you have to constantly check on and the low gravity is an interesting change, but not something I like. It seems like they simply ran out of ideas on how to refresh the game and just threw in the first thing someone in the room said. Simply put, the games are generally the same, just in a different setting, with different classes, and with something new that isn't always better. I liked 1 a lot, 2 was pretty darn good with the DLC, but this one feels like the same old thing with some attempted changes that just don't work very well. I don't enjoy solo play on this game like I did the others. This is one of those games that you won't have a lot of fun with unless you have a few friends join in or you just absolutely love the series as a fanboy or something. I love the series, but I just don't feel this game like I did the others. If you have not played a Borderlands game previously, I suggest getting one of the others. This is still a good game, but just not as good as the others.
Pretty good but I think the series is running out of steamgreenmandan2013 | Feb. 24, 2015 | See all greenmandan2013's reviews »
I purchased the pre sequel because I really enjoyed the last 2 but from the start didn't feel like it had the same feel. The low gravity was a change that I didn't much care for and the oxygen just added one more thing that I had to worry about. I really like the humor in the game and enjoyed the familiarity of the game but I felt they took the angle of 1,000,000 guns away. It seemed I would only get one gun every 15-20 enemies and most were worthless. Plus the enemies never changed it seemed they were all the same throughout the game. Really the game is pretty good but will be my last purchase of this series.
