    Another great installment in the Borderlands franchise, the Pre Sequel takes things to the next level with a fantastic story, great characters and new innovative gameplay, which will make you jump for joy...Quite literally.

    The more time you spend with The Pre-Sequel!, the easier it is for you to notice important changes: a completely new combat system, cool new characters, a complex story, even funnier quests and more of everyone's favorite - Claptrap! Fans of Borderlands 2 will find tons of goodies wrapped in a fresh new package and spend dozens of hours simply having fun.

    Even though this is not the “real” continuation of the beloved shoot-and-loot-series and still shows some elements that might have been bugging you before, you’ll get plenty of hours of fun out of it.

    A pre-sequel for those who are predisposed to Borderlands and can't wait for a full sequel.

    If Borderlands: the pre Sequel were a DLC that does not bear its name, it still is a very pleasant game with new features like low gravity, oxygen to look after, jetpacks and freeze guns. Add a crazy and very funny playable Clap-Trap and you've got quite a nice game.

    Like Borderlands 2, The Pre-Sequel often feels like a fairly safe sequel, but the gimmicks Gearbox chose to use this time around actually worked surprisingly well, far better than I had originally anticipated.

    Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel is an unpolished, uninspired adventure where fun can be had with friends, but that time could be better spent elsewhere.

    BL:TPS is to BL2 what DA2 was to DA:O: The game simply pales in comparison to Borderlands 2.

    Everything is worse by either a bit or by a lot. Humor and story: NPCs are fewer and flatter, the humor seems to be aimed at Australians, is preachy and tedious, and the story doesn't arc nearly as well. The gameplay features entirely too many platformer elements, skewed balance (compared to BL1, especially), and quests that are less varied and involve more backtracking (go there, oh, it's broken/blocked/guarded, go elsewhere, etc), and the oxygen system adds little but annoyance. On the technical side, we see no improvements (still no dupe/modding protection, still can't even choose the audio output in the options), and a lot more issues: clipping, game-stopping quest bugs, and glitches.

    The game isn't bad in the sense that you can't get your money's worth from it, but it's not anywhere on Borderland 2's level, even if you remove the DLC from the latter. It's painfully obvious that it was outsourced and that the original team had little to do with it. A shame, really, but in all fairness it should be said that Borderlands 2 was an unusually great game whose excellence is hard to match.

    Mechanics are great, the use of jumping and slamming ads a whole new level to the game, I LOVE the grinder and the characters talking to eachMechanics are great, the use of jumping and slamming ads a whole new level to the game, I LOVE the grinder and the characters talking to each other was a nice change. But that's about it. The story lacks any depth , the developers really over hyped the amount of guns you'll find and actually use, there is very little difference in the levels, and it feels EXTREMELY short. In short its a good game, the things that are actually new work well, it just doesn't have the good quality and quantity that Borderlands 2 had. Expand

    I just finished the game and to be honest, I was kinda waiting for it to end for the last few hours. I certainly will not play it ever againI just finished the game and to be honest, I was kinda waiting for it to end for the last few hours. I certainly will not play it ever again and I'm glad I didn't buy the season pass I was going to since BL2 DLC's were so good.

    Sure, you can say that it has all the elements of Borderlands 2, so it also must be as good of a game. This is not true at all. The basic mechanics of BL are there and they still are very enjoyable, but fun and interesting campaign are missing. You only find yourself running from one end to another inside many very annoying, maze-like levels. Thats a fine way to add some content (hours) to the game play.

    Save your money...!!
    Such a huge disappointment after playing the first two games.
    Just a quick slapped together game to cash in on the original popularity
