  • Summary: After a dizzying escape from a near-almost-certain-death scenario (involving statuesque buttocks), Rhys and Fiona are in search of another piece of the puzzle that will lead them to the vast riches of Vault key ownership. Lost in the mysterious jungle of an Atlas terraforming facility, FionaAfter a dizzying escape from a near-almost-certain-death scenario (involving statuesque buttocks), Rhys and Fiona are in search of another piece of the puzzle that will lead them to the vast riches of Vault key ownership. Lost in the mysterious jungle of an Atlas terraforming facility, Fiona finds help from an unexpected mentor, Rhys continues to share brain-space with the disembodied mind of a dead dictator, and love is in the air. Pursued by the ruthless criminal 'Queenpin' Vallory, and with very little help from Vaughn's accountancy skills (or stellar abs), getting anywhere near the Vault is entirely on you. Expand

    You get a decent amount of forward progression on the story side, the introduction of two new characters on opposite ends of the good/evil fence, and some familiar faces for old-school Borderlands fans. So if you’ve been on board with Tales from the Borderlands thus far, episode 3 will give you no reason to stop playing now.

    Each second spent in its world teaches you something about the characters you're shepherding and the Borderlands universe at large. Episode Three is definitely the best we've seen of this series so far.

    Hilarity underscored by humanity - a winning formula.

    It's a very good chapter, and it has two distinct stories based on previous choices. It might be an opening for a great conclusion to this Borderlands spin off.

    It's not quite as strong in every area as the preceding chapters were, but Tales From the Borderlands' third episode does a nice job keeping us invested, continuing to add new wrinkles to the adventure, and keeping us smiling.

    Overall it lacks the punch of the first two episodes and focuses too much on action, while character development is put on the back burner. Nonetheless I am curious how Telltale will continue their journey to Pandora.

    While Gortys is a fun new addition to the cast, most of the episode feels stale. The action continues to shove annoying quicktime events down your throat, with more chase and combat sequences with no consequences – in fact, at this point I don't I feel like I've made a single significant choice in the series.

    Wicked and wonderful, Episode 3 of telltales acclaimed series doesn't disappoint and is well worth the three month waiting period, Once againWicked and wonderful, Episode 3 of telltales acclaimed series doesn't disappoint and is well worth the three month waiting period, Once again we place in the shoes of Fiona and shoe of Rhys as they travel the borderlands with their companions in search of loot and glory within Pandora's hidden vault. What is so great about episode 3 is that it improves so heavily on the humor just when you thought it couldn't get any better with class A performances and trademark wit, the gang finally seems assembled with some new additions adding more choice variety and value in each episode to come. Hopefully the next episode dosen't take too long telltale........... Expand
