Especially one about a Vault key, the Hyperion Corporation, bandits, loot, gangsters, Vault Hunters, secret Atlas tech, explosions, getaways, extortion, betrayal, and mayhem. Set after the events seen in Borderlands 2, Tales from the Borderlands is about Rhys, a Hyperion company man looking to become the next Handsome Jack, and it’s also about Fiona, a Pandoran con artist out to score the biggest of all swindles. Lured into danger by a Vault key and all it promises, the unlikely duo are thrown together with a common goal and a huge amount of mistrust. Who is telling the truth, and why is it important That’s up to you to decide. You are Rhys…and you are also Fiona, because like every tale worth telling, there are two…oh, you read that part already? Well, it’s important to remember that there *are* two sides to every story, and you my friend, you will tell this tale, or…tales, through the choices that you make. Your every decision as both Rhys and Fiona will affect the people and world around you: this is a game where YOU are the final author in a brand new Borderlands story set on the unforgiving world of Pandora.

    Hilarious, heartfelt and high-octane, Tales from the Borderlands is a must-play game that sets a new standard for comedy games to come.

    The thing that sets Tales from the Borderlands apart from any others in the series so far is that I want to go back and play it again. Like, right now.

    This is, without a doubt, the finest series Telltale Games have produced to date. Whether you’re already a Borderlands fan or not, Tales From The Borderlands delivers an emotional, entertaining, and downright fun episodic adventure title.

    Tales from the Borderlands can easily compete against the hottest contenders on TV, not just on account of its writing, but also its cinematic beauty.

    I can’t express how delighted I was with the first episode. Unfortunately later the game lost some of its magic and oscillated between decent and really good. Despite that fact it’s by far the funniest thing I’ve played in years and I can’t wait to get my hands on the second season. [13/2015, p.63]

    If nothing else, the awesome humor, interesting characters and the always welcomed insanity of Borderlands will surely hold your attention.

    If you value humor and atmosphere above all else, go forth and enjoy Tales from the Borderlands. If not, you will have a hard time enjoying a cartoon without gameplay, freedom and bedazzling graphics.

    I've only ever played one other Telltale game (The Walking Dead, Season 1), which I enjoyed a lot, so I figured I'd like this game, since II've only ever played one other Telltale game (The Walking Dead, Season 1), which I enjoyed a lot, so I figured I'd like this game, since I love the other Borderlands games. I figured right, and then some. Not a huge fan of the Telltale-style gameplay mechanics, but I loved the story and characters so much. I wish there was an easier way to know the different outcomes of making different choices, and I wish they gave you a bit more time to decide, but that is a very minor complaint. I should also mention that the music is awesome in this game. I am sad it's over. Excellent, excellent game. Expand

    Excellent, underrated game from start to finish. First-rate voice acting and great Borderlands animation style. The story and characters drawExcellent, underrated game from start to finish. First-rate voice acting and great Borderlands animation style. The story and characters draw you in and keep you entertained throughout, faithfully adhering to the Borderlands universe. Small segment of SJW-heavy side arc regarding a lesbian couple, aggravated by a nails-on-chalkboard Aussie-accented character. (They go on and on about their wedding, and on and on and on, and then on and on some more. Enough, I get it already) Anyway, not too bad that it can't be tolerated. Minimal cringe - one scene in particular where you sit there blubbering away (gag). Females are flawless and brave at all times while the men suffer from d-baggery, yellow belly and awkwardness. Besides a few forgivable flaws, game has a big heart and soul. Opening credits sequences are fantastic. One particular "gun battle" should go down as one the legendary moments in gaming. Camera work is near perfect, soundtrack superb. If you already know what to expect with Telltale game story-driven gameplay and are a Borderlands fan, this is for you. Expand

Great game that plays out truly like a choose your own adventure book. The joy in this game is from making choices but not worried about living with every moral choice. It's a true joy to play. You should check out this gem, no question.

    ON PC don't use an xbox 360 controller though, it will crash the game for some reason.

    I haven't played a Telltale adventure this funny since Tales of Monkey Island and I've only ever finished the first Borderlands too! If youI haven't played a Telltale adventure this funny since Tales of Monkey Island and I've only ever finished the first Borderlands too! If you want a humourous adventure filled with pop culture references, Borderlands cameos, strong voice acting along with a groovy soundtrack to boot, you'll find it all here in Tales from the Borderlands. The game does have moments where the animation is choppy (something that Telltale has become infamous for), some scenes appear to be rushed and the damn thing doesn't work on my Logitech F710 controller for some reason (even though it claims “Full Controller Support") but I'm willing to overlook these flaws and recommend the game anyway.

    Especially recommended if you're a Borderlands fan.

    Ninguém deve ficar dependendo de trabalhos de terceiros para ter um jogo legendado , principalmente porque até mesmo sites pequenos já fazem esse trabalho hoje em dia, então é obrigação da empresa fazer isso.
    Antes que alguém pense "vá aprender inglês" saiba que eu já sou fluente, e se eu estou pagando caro por um jogo é um direito meu de ter o conforto de joga-lo em minha língua nativa.

    Já o game é como todo jogo da telltale, passam apenas falsas sensações de escolhas, pois não importa qual opção você escolha quase tudo acaba da mesma forma. Eu não considero isso um jogo, pois o significado de um game é dar ao jogador a possibilidade de interagir naquele mundo. Se um jogo não possui essa liberdade no gameplay então ele deve compensar isso no enredo, caso contrário será apenas um filme interativo, e é exatamente isso o que esse "jogo" é.
