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.
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.
I mean... it's BorderlandsOmittingCoder | May 5, 2015 | See all OmittingCoder's reviews »
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!
