    In theory, it should be awesome, but in practice nothing works like it should. Legends is a sloppy, unimaginative game that isn't ready for primetime.

    This simply is not Borderlands.

    Borderlands Legends doesn't live up to the Borderlands family name. The game could've been good, since it fits perfectly in the Borderlands style. However the game never succeeds in finding the right balance between shooting and tactical gameplay. Also the game is never really challenging and has some annoying technical issues.

    If I worked at Gearbox, it would break my heart to see my dearest franchise abused in this way.

    With a more focused campaign and some extra work to iron out control bugs, and Borderlands Legends could have shown promise.

    With its simple approach to mimicking Borderlands on a console, the broken control system and lack of variety, Borderlands Legends feels like a missed opportunity and a bit of a cash-in, relying on the name alone to sell the game.
