Average User Score: 8.4Jan 11, 2016Telltale Games finest to date.
I have played many point and click adventure games in my life (Broken Sword, Day of the Tentacle, FullTelltale Games finest to date.
I have played many point and click adventure games in my life (Broken Sword, Day of the Tentacle, Full Throttle, Monkey Island etc.), so the games that Telltale were producing were right up my alley, I remember playing "The Walking Dead" for the first time and realizing straight away that Telltale is the future of point and click adventure games, I played "The Wolf Among Us" and loved that too, it was so satisfying to see this new spin on the genre, these are games with modern graphics and great cinematic quality, of course they are more linear than the old classic games from which Telltale were inspired by but what matters in the end is the characters, story and how well developed it is.
Then "Tales from the Borderlands" was announced, I wasn't hyped for the game since I wasn't a big fan of the Borderlands series but nevertheless was still happy another game was coming, when I finally got down to sitting and playing it, I was blown away.
"Tales from the Borderlands" shines in its humour and great characters, the humour in this game is so brilliantly executed, never have I laughed so much in a game before, this is also the most interactive and beautiful Telltale game to date, there is a great deal of variety in the areas you visit throughout the game, the cinematic quality has been raised and the characters are so well defined, it doesn't matter whatsoever if you liked or played "Borderlands" or not, this game stands on its own but for those who did play it and enjoy it, I'm sure you will enjoy the style of humour and pop culture references that is abundant in its setting.
If you love comedy adventure like Pixar's movies and the old classic Lucas Arts games then you will simply love this game, if you are into something more serious and dramatic then you can check out the Walking Dead series that Telltale has done, I loved both but in the end was drawn more to this game because the comedic charm and wit of Ron Gilbert and Tim Shafer's games in the 90's is what got me into point and click adventure games and the characters kept me there, that same charm and wit is present here in "Tales from the Borderlands"… Expand
Average User Score: 7.9May 10, 2015Fun game unfortunately ridiculed with bugs and performance issues, completed the single player on a high end rig and I can't count the numberFun game unfortunately ridiculed with bugs and performance issues, completed the single player on a high end rig and I can't count the number of times the game crashed.
Online at the moment is chaos, whilst it has plenty of fun activities and heists, there is a good amount of lag, frame rate drops and couple that with the loading times and matchmaking makes this game a real annoyance, that is before we mention the amount of people who leave heists.
I'm giving it a 7 because despite the bugs, I actually enjoyed this game and occasionally enjoy the online, it is however unfair to give it a rating any higher.… Expand
Average User Score: 7.6Dec 26, 2014Great PC Port for a demo, that's right, this is a demo, in fact I have played demo's longer than this, you can finish the entire main campaignGreat PC Port for a demo, that's right, this is a demo, in fact I have played demo's longer than this, you can finish the entire main campaign in an average of 40mins depending on your skill, that's it, one mission, Some people have finished the entire game in less than 5mins, this is the most pathetic cash grab I have ever seen in history of cash grabs, EA have never even went this low. Do not buy this, wait for The Phantom Pain. Its not worth 15 quid, its not worth 10, its not worth 5 or even anything, its a demo, it should be free, I can not believe that some people are defending this because its a good port, so this is what the world comes to, make it a good port and you win the PC fans over, don't even worry about content. Game play itself was fun enough, about 8/10 minus 8 because Konami have charged people money for a demo.… Expand

Average User Score: 8.4Oct 31, 2012Great game, it retains many features of the mod and adds a few more which I think make it better, the addition of an alien commander is niceGreat game, it retains many features of the mod and adds a few more which I think make it better, the addition of an alien commander is nice and the fact that marines can now buy their own weapons from their personal resources instead of begging the commander every time they respawn which gets annoying, the map design and graphics are great though as well as the sound, despite the fact I'm loving this game there are still issues to be aware of, the pre-cache one Is being fixed at the moment I'm sure and I wouldn't worry about that, the main one bothering me is the stuttering and teleporting that seems to appear at the most inappropriate times but the engine is actually great despite those facts and I'm sure they are working on those bugs. bunnyhopping is absent though but I gotta say I prefer the skulks movement in this than in HL Mod, you stick to walls much better and transitioning from wall to floor/ceiling is easier and more fluid, get this game you won't regret it.… Expand

If you want a great game, great humor and puzzles to get that brain going then get Portal 2, you will not be disappointed… Expand
Average User Score: 8.9Oct 30, 2012Like most people, I too have been waiting a long time for this mod and its amazing, enjoyable to both people who have and haven't played HalfLike most people, I too have been waiting a long time for this mod and its amazing, enjoyable to both people who have and haven't played Half Life, the level design is fantastic, all the areas are essentially the same with some minor differences and some areas changed almost completely, its playable so far up to Lambda Core and Xen hasn't been released yet, they are working on it. The soundtrack is amazing and voice acting is brilliant, some nice subtle references to half life and their own mod in the game which I found amusing, the only flaw I found was jumping which felt a little clunky but it didn't affect much, its on Source engine not GoldSrc so your gonna expect a different feel to the motion, it was the same with CS 1.6 and CS:S. The game is still as hardcore as Half Life, the marines are hard which I find good, there is a bug however with the helicopter on Surface Tension but that seems to be the only one I've found. I would recommend this mod to anyone, it feels like a commercial Valve game and plays like one and I enjoyed every single moment of it. So much work has gone into this and you can tell 10/10… Expand
