This game was sort of a disappointment for me because I didn't much care for the story. That said, I loved the gameplay and the trademark Borderlands humor. The whole game is a little shorter than Borderlands 2 and feels like it could be a major DLC. I liked the new setting, characters, abilities, and cryo elemental quite a bit and had a lot of fun with my 25 hours playing it. This game is a must-have for Borderlands fans, but is the weakest in the series.
As someone who has put 120 hours into Borderlands and Borderlands 2 each, The Pre-Sequel is only worth playing for the story. If you're new to the series then it's a perfectly fine game, but I have outgrown the formula of loot, guns, and more loot. The writing and humour is still top notch, so if you haven't played this series before I would recommend this one.
Played Borderlands 2 and discovered one of the best villains there is in a video-game? Want to find out what turned him in what he is today? Well now you can find out! For the very low low price of [insert current price here] you can follow Handsome Jack on his adventures on a moon! Jump around and gasp for air while you uncover a vast new moon, full of native species, that will most likely try to kill you. Certainly worth buying during a sale!
Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel is the third installment in the series and after such a masterpiece that Borderlands 2 was it was either hit or miss when it comes to this game. While everyone was expecting The Pre-Sequel to be as good but sadly it turned to be a solid but not a brilliant game. It's still Borderlands, diablo and first person perspective mix, this time in space but really, don't expect the quality level of B2!
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.
