I don't like it, I love itdiscohemmo | July 20, 2015 | See all discohemmo's reviews »
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.

I still don't like the series all that much. I think it's ugly, unfunny, and the gameplay is dull. That being said, this is definitely the best game they've made. The moon design is actually kind of interesting and i always like things that take palce in space. It's basically a more polished Borderlands and I kind of had some fun sometimes. So I think it's the best game in the series so far.
Imporved guns, better money system, lots of fun!Postgaming | June 4, 2015 | See all Postgaming's reviews »
This is basically the same game as B2 but with a refined feel. The money matters in this game and the guns are a bit more fun to play with this time around. I played online with a friend and had a good time. I didn't enjoy jumping around to traverse all that much. Lots of filler mission but its what you'd expect. I would wait for to to go way on sale.
