    Borderlands 3 has surpassed the bar that its predecessor had set. The story is grand in scale, the humor is on-point and updated to 2019, weapons are diverse and the new Vault Hunters are unique in every way. Every BL-fan must pick this game up.

    Gearbox returns with a new entry in the Borderlands saga and it's the best one yet. It has more guns, a better gunplay, a bunch of iconic characters and a great story, more planets to explore and interesting quests. Even though it has some bugs yet to be fixed, fans are going to enjoy Borderlands 3 and it's going to become a good entry in the shooter-looter genre.

    Maybe it’s not the most innovative game out there, but Borderlands 3 is a total must have for loot shooter fans.

    In terms of improvements, there could've just as well been a 5 behind this Borderlands.

    Those new to Borderlands will find some aspects confusing at first – Borderlands 3 is minimal when it comes to tutorials – but if they persist, they will end up luxuriating in the joyous, tongue-in-cheek, comic book-influenced fun it provides. Sure, it fails to turn the franchise into something new and futuristic in gameplay terms. But why would it, when its original conception was already immaculate?

    Nothing says "Welcome home" better than Borderlands 3. It's no different than the other games, it's simply more ambitious: the shooter and lifespan of the game are better, you will explore more planets than ever. But with all of this ambition, it lacks technical polish, where it should have learned from its past mistakes.

    I’ve got very mixed feelings about Borderlands 3. Overall I like it and it’s fun to play, but it could have been so much more and the writing feels like time traveling back to your high school days and being surprised and a little disappointed at how immature everyone is.

    Reviews are pretty pointless nowadays. it's either a 0/10 or a 10/10, people have no idea how criticism works these days....If you're a fan ofReviews are pretty pointless nowadays. it's either a 0/10 or a 10/10, people have no idea how criticism works these days....If you're a fan of the other games like I am, you'll absolutely enjoy the game. No FPS issues, no glitches found ( played 16 hours on Friday, 10 on Saturday ). Humor, it's up there, and is present more often than in Borderlands 2. Game-play itself is phenomenal, and the villains are *IN MY OPINION* on par with Jack. If you're a tinfoil hat dude that insists Epic is Chinese spyware or whatever you may as well skip it, I'm glad I won't share a game with a person like you. Expand

    i want to start by saying that i am a huge borderlands fan. this is a copy paste of what i told my friends on discord so its not written in ai want to start by saying that i am a huge borderlands fan. this is a copy paste of what i told my friends on discord so its not written in a traditional review format. aight so just finished bl3, my spoilerless review is non of the questions left after the end of the pre sequal and tales were answered but one and this was not worth the wait. story, franchise, and unanswered questions aside, gameplay is great
    some returning characters barley appeared in the game itself that you wanted more from which just pisses me off, the campaign itself has the same amount of missions as the bl2 campaign, its about the same size but longer because there is a lot of travel or waiting for npcs to do something
    its clear there was a major rewrite after the end of tales and pre sequal. the villains and the story dont fit at all with the way bl2 ended and the new bl2 dlc was so that they can have a 7 years too late change of heart
    if u play borderlands for the story dont buy this game
    the over 1 billion guns is also a lie, there are like 20 parts for each gun that can rotate so its 1 billion gun combinations. on the start of the game i looted a sniper from a chest and in that same minute i got the same gun as a mission reward. more dups throughout the game
    tbh the best part about this game is the ice t cameo
    and they spoiled most of him in the demos they sent out
    still havent played the endgame, did proving grounds once and it was meh
    oh yeah jokes, again thats why ice t was the best part about the game, he had the best jokes. all those jokes traveled between boomer to ok, rarely will make you laugh. the only good parts were spoiled in demos. i honestly find it hard to believe this took them 5 years to make because the big change in direction couldnt have happened right after tales ended
    the wrost joke is after u kill someone of something big things go south fast and it says to be continued in bl4 and i didnt believe it but it drew on for half a minute or even a minute and with the greed of 2k and randy dickfork i started believing it near the end and was about to punch the first computer related thing i could find
    it honestly doesnt feel like a borderlands game as much as 1 2 pre and tales and tales wasnt a borderlands game
    story is week because u dont care about anything, they hold hostage everything u hoped for through the entire story and almost all of it wont be shown
    this is the only borderlands game so far that i dont want to replay the story in a higher difficulty

The game crashes a lot, too often, the game was rushed for the launch, the bugs are everywhere and a lot of times they make the game unplayable, if you want to buy this wait until they fix it. Expand
