A great improvement from the last game!GeoffAussieSpy | Aug. 25, 2015 | See all GeoffAussieSpy's reviews »
Borderlands 1 was very vanilla and simple. Then with 2, they brought it up a notch and added more to the franchise. Now with The Pre-Sequel, they've added more to it! I love the Borderlands series and I really love and enjoy this game! It's the good old fun from the first games, amazing shooting and looting. The characters are always so interesting and have great depth. And I absolutely love the missions. The story is superb! The side missions are very good and will keep you interested in them and sometimes even see them as main story missions! The first 2 gave me a big mad max feeling, with the wasteland and surviving the crazy, weird, terrifying enemies. From bandits to monsters, they'll keep you on your toes, ready for whatever will pop out next. This game is an amazing one and is filled with much to do and very, very interesting places and characters. It has the wonderful base game of the first two in the franchise and greatly improves with more for you do use and do. To fight differently with many different options and it's all up to you. It's your choice. The guns, oh the guns. Many, many weapons to choose from and experiment with and find your personal favorite. Only downside is that they removed the ability to trash items. You could mark any item in your inventory as trash and then sell it more quickly at a vending machine/store. But you can still favorite items to mark them as your best or just most loved weapon/item. Still an amazing game with more to offer. I highly recommend it.

You liked Borderlands right? This is more of that! You know the score by now - pacey, playful shooting with a distinctive cast and a deceptively crude wit. As is the hallmark of the series, it's always better with a friend. But this is probably the best of the series to tackle solo. The combat has been beefed up a bit, most notably with the introduction of oxygen as a resource. It's not revolutionary but it's enough to Fabreeze the comfy sofa of Borderlands. Play one of the others first. Then, if you need more, here it is!

Yeah, if you have played BL or BL2, you know what you are betting your money on; guns, loot, disturbingly awesome characters and hours and hours of total BADASSnes! Compared to Borderlands 2, this game takes less time to finish, but it's till alot of fun. Graphics are great, voice acting is very good and the gameplay itself is good (low gravity jumping on moon surface is nice add-on). Final boss is more enjoyable than in BL2 imo. Try it, you won't regret it
Same Borderlands, Different Everything Elseemptyhaven | July 19, 2015 | See all emptyhaven's reviews »
Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel edges around the demand for more Borderlands without actually giving us another game. On one side, it does give us that new adventure we were looking for, but on the other hand, everything else seems too familiar. There are some interesting game mechanics added here and there (such as the whole thing with Oxygen being important now), but in all, it's still pretty much the same game. That said, it's not a bad game at all. While it does only feel like an extension of the Borderlands franchise, you cannot deny the fact that 1) it is still pretty fun to play, and 2) it is only just an extension of the Borderlands franchise. Cameos appear here and there, and you get the odd reference to something in the previous games. It's like a bit of self-inflicted fanfiction. Gravity is also somewhat of a new mechanic, allowing you to experience gunfights with a new twist: jumping around and floating there for a few pseudo-weightless seconds, dodging enemy fire, firing your own gun yourself. I thought that was cool. In itself, this "Pre-Sequel" is merely okay. But it's still worth it to get this title. If anything, it's worth it to complete your library of Borderlands games.
It's a Pre Sequel.rcotta1994 | June 13, 2015 | See all rcotta1994's reviews »
Borderlands The Pre Sequel takes place between Borderlands and Borderlands 2. Yes, it is a word. While you may think you are getting a re-skinned Borderlands 2, and while you are, the game takes place in a new setting, the moon. Elphis is Pandora's moon, and is a cool new setting to give the series more backstory. If you liked Borderlands 2, then you will like this. If it isn't broke, don't fix it. The game engine works and if you don't like it don't play it.
