    Tales from the Borderlands is everything fans could possibly want out from a Telltale game set in the Borderlands universe.

    Tales from the Borderlands is simply an exquisite experience to partake in that is a must have. It’s non-stop entertainment that comes in multiple forms, and the only real drawback is that we have to wait for episodes 2-5, and may have a different opinion when the full game is released.

    The Borderlands series definitely has a unique feel to it from its setting, dialogue, and characters that can be easily screwed up by a developer not quite in tune with the way the series operates. The good news is that Telltale Games are experts at story, so the idea that they could approach and do justice to this universe while also expanding on it in a way that isn't just a loot-filled first-person shooter is an interesting proposition.

    Even if it does rely a little on what’s proven to be popular amongst fans (name a franchise that isn’t guilty of that), there is still so much that is fresh and unconventional for both Telltale and the Borderlands universe, it helps Tales From The Borderlands stand on its own two feet as a thrilling and chuckle inducing experience.

    An engaging first episode that snaps along at a decent pace. Tales from the Borderlands might not have the emotional heft of Telltale's other games, but it's got enough charm and cheek to see it through.
