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.

For someone who had played Borderlands 2 and all its DLCs, the Borderlands Pre-Sequel with it's new weapons (Ice and Laser), added zero gravity mechanics and a whole new story was an exciting prospect. Unfortunately, the game was a severe disappointment. It does not come close to mating the breadth and depth of Borderlands 2 in terms of gameplay, humor, storytelling or environments. If you are a Borderlands fan, then there's probably just enough on the plate to keep you on your toes but for someone looking to get stuck into the Borderlands cannon, this is not the right place to start

2k and Gearbox have done it again with the main effort coming from 2k Australia this time. I don't know why but with every Borderlands release since the first one, I am hesitant. It took me a good while before I caught on to the first game, but in no had 200+ hours sunk into it (curse you Crawmerax!).
With the advent of Borderlands 2 and the development of the story and characters, I found myself once again impressed and enchanted, sinking almost as many hours in as the first. However, at both starts I wasn't sure if they'd live up to the hype.
Now to the game at hand, Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel delivers on all the favorite game aspects and mechanics that made the first two a success while trimming down some of the less desirable features and aspects that were included in Borderlands 2. I feel I have been introduced to a happy medium between it's two former games with shockingly loveable character designs (which I was absolutely not expecting).
And to conclude, yes... Nisha is OP.

If it isn't broke, why fix it? Borderlands the Pre-Sequel is Borderlands 2 with a new storyline and a partial face-lift, much like Jack's. 2K Australia used plenty of code, voice recordings, and animation sequences from BL2. Despite lacking a freshness that most sequels/prequels offer, Borderlands the Pre-Sequel is still a fun and enjoyable experience. The new features: low gravity, jet packs, butt-slams, lazers, characters and little more are all great. It just wasn't enough to make me love this game as much as I loved BL and BL2. This game was a lot shorter than BL2 to boot and so far the DLC has been lacking. This game is fun and I will still continue to play it with anticipation of BL3, hopefully not too far away.

this game is amazing it's refreshing it's bring new precpective on borderlands 2 thanks to jack(not handsome...yet) and the new vault hunters which are way diffrent from the previous vault hunters which were basically the same from borderlands1 it's nice to know how handsome jack became the president of hyperion and just for the record: LASER GUNS ARE AWSOME
