    Borderlands Legends is a good idea dragged down by its inconsistent execution and lack of content.

    Borderlands Legends is a complete waste of a stellar IP, offering clunky action-strategy fare and paying mere lip service to the series's core strengths.

    BL's ace style is weighed down by unwieldy gameplay. [Jan 2013, p.88]

    Unworthy of its own name, this game will tear your patience apart with a lot of glitches and a disturbing lack of polish in touch recognition and AI development. It's not worthy of your money or your time.

    It's still a monotonous and unexciting slog through a game that plays out like a stuck record, and even the most hardcore of Borderlands fans will find little of interest, lacking as it does the series' trademark personality.

    A mediocre game trying to sneak by on the coattails of greatness.

    Borderlands Legends is a sub-par strategy RPG that most fans of the series will tolerate, but non-fans shouldn't bother with.

    Borderlands Legends is a nice little extra for the Borderlands-universe, but that's it. Its strategic take on the shooter action we've come to know and love should warrant its existence. Unfortunately Borderlands Legends is plagued by bugs and bad programming choices that really prevents players from enjoying it.

    Borderlands Legends may walk and talk like a tactical shooter, but it drowns out the tactical aspect with clunky controls, divorcing it from the action-packed FPS that gave it life.

    Borderlands Legends is a prime example of the dangers of taking a popular game series and handing it to developers who are unfamiliar with where the original game comes from, where it's going, and what has made the it successful.
