  • Summary: Captured by Vallory and her thugs, Rhys and Fiona are forced to keep searching for the Vault beacon - at gunpoint. The beacon is on the Hyperion moon base - Helios - while our heroes are on Pandora... so there's the annoying cold void of death known as 'space' to overcome. Even with the helpCaptured by Vallory and her thugs, Rhys and Fiona are forced to keep searching for the Vault beacon - at gunpoint. The beacon is on the Hyperion moon base - Helios - while our heroes are on Pandora... so there's the annoying cold void of death known as 'space' to overcome. Even with the help of a familiar face, and with a worryingly helpful Handsome Jack hitching a ride in Rhys’ head, getting on board the ominous ‘H’ is going to take every drop of guile, and quite possibly all the spunk you’ve got. Sacrifices will be made – can you make the tough choices needed to succeed? Expand

    The best episode of Tales from the Borderlands yet. I laughed. I cried. I haven't been able to say that about a Borderlands game since Tiny Tina's Assault on Dragon Keep, or about a Telltale game since the first season of The Walking Dead.

    I loved this latest episode, and I’m adoring Tales From The Borderlands, easily the best thing Telltale’s done since season one of The Walking Dead. It continues to demonstrate how the light-adventure formula can be played for humor as much as tragedy, how good writing can shine in a videogame with the right presentation, and just how accomplished the studio behind it is.

    Escape Plan Bravo is by far the best episode in the Tales From the Borderlands series, and probably in all the Telltale production. A true emotional rollercoaster, filled with intense and bizarre moments. How the writers will untangle the plot, well, it remains to be seen.

    This episode has pretty much everything you could ask for. Telltale is still pulling out great stories and some memorable moments, and all signs point to a great season finale.

    In Episode 4, Escape Plan Bravo, Telltale manages to wrangle hold of the material and build something more cohesive even if some cracks still show.

    The fourth episode of Tales from the Borderlands is a let-down, especially compared to the astounding third episode. Although the new setting is great, there just is not much speed in this episode. Plus, it is very hard to remember details that are important in moments of choice.

    There are no big action sequences, which takes away some of the energy, but the emphasis on character relationships is what makes this episode a good one.

    Coolest episode yet. Telltale's trademark comedy and drama twisted together in a story that is a pleasure to watch and participate, but, moreCoolest episode yet. Telltale's trademark comedy and drama twisted together in a story that is a pleasure to watch and participate, but, more importantly, this episode has a very huge impact on entire Borderlands lore. Which was absolutely unexpected and as mind blowing as finale of Tiny Tina's DLC. Borderlands' fans will remember that episode, no doubts. Expand

I had episode three'sThe most humorous episode yet with some sad moments sprinkled in between but my favorite episode is still the third one. I had episode three's great impression while playing this episode which involuntarily caused somewhat lower impression compared with the third one. But I think they kind of made it on purpose considering the cliffhanger at the end of the episode, paving way for the best peak action moments in the final episode, hopefully. Expand
