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

Like it feels like a re-skin like Civ: BE, it actually shows of it's good parts as you play it: Pros: -With the new gravity, you jump like you have a jetpack, -Obviously the sense of humor it's precedessors have, -More and more different guns in any aspect -New playable characters Cons: -Of course, it feels like BL2 as it has so big similarity to the design layout -Repetitive missions(but not so much) Overall a great game, don't get your hopes skyhigh for totally different game than BL2, and it's not that pricey, so i guess it's good.

If you like looting everything in your sight and want to have fun while doing it Borderlands the pre-sequel is for you.The core of Borderlands the pre-sequel is the same with a few new tweaks such as low gravity environment,ton of new loot and new characters.The only problem i had with the game was at times it can get repetitive apart from that it is fun to play.This game flushes out the character of handsome jack and expands on borderland universe but if you were on the fences with borderland 2 this game won't change your mind.
