Fun but Borderlands 2 was way better.


Despite the fact that I had a good time with Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, I felt a kind of disappointment. If you are a demanding player who expects the same breakthrough as the developers did in the past, you will be disappointed. This game is just Borderlands 2.5. After all, I do not regret my time so I recommend as it's still solid title but not as good as previous parts.

Best game, runs even on macbook air


I thought for a while that borderlands 2 had to be one of the best games ever and this totally holds up to it! New game mechanics make it a really great game! The new guns are the best thing ever, if you liked any borderlands game you will like this one and if you haven't played them you really should. I can play this game on a macbook air with intel hd 3000, yes intel hd 3000! it is a really great game, an improvement to the series (maybe not in story, but it's still really great)

Thorough letdown


This game was less fun than 2, to be honest. Low gravity is actually a detracting factor in this game. Sniping is now impossible, as opposed to impractical, because enemies have jetpacks and can simply jump straight to you no matter how far or high you are. The classes themselves don't have the same attraction that they had in 1 and 2, I tried them all and wasn't impressed with any. On top of that, the story itself is weak, it just felt like a badly pieced together piece of fanfiction full of retcons that turned Jack from a good guy to a bad one, the ending just felt unsatisfying and thrown in at the eleventh hour

The next level of Borderlands


Definitely worth getting if you liked the previous games, the improvements to mobility lead to a much more interesting combat environment, and one where you are much less glued to the ground. The introduction of the new lazer weapons and the cryo element fit in seamlessly and generally improve the variation in strategy when facing enemies. Though many of the assets are re-used this doesn't hinder the gameplay in any way, and is to be expected in a game of this nature. As with the Borderlands 2 the game itself is rather short, but with the release of DLC on the horizon, that seems set to change for the better. The Season Pass for this game is worth grabbing if you enjoy playing, as this time, it actually includes ALL the DLC ;)

Best Borderlands yet


Superbly made game, lots of humour to delight and great dynamics with the matchmaking system for Multiplayer gaming. Graphics are up to scratch and storyline does not fail to disappoint even the ravest critics of Borderlands! Lots of guns and loot, and a variety of ways to upgrade your guns *as you'll see later in side missions*
