    Perhaps the best way to describe Borderlands 3 is to say it is exactly the game you would expect it to be. There are plenty of familiar faces, and it has the same sort of ambiance and atmosphere. People will still keep going into quest after quest for the same reasons (loot). While it might be difficult to accept the new villains after a great one like Handsome Jack, the twins are fine. Most importantly, the new Vault Hunters work well and the game is as fun to play alone as it is with friends. It looks, works, and plays well, and fans of the series will be more than happy to join the Crimson Raiders.

    Borderlands 3 is more of the same in the best possible way, while some small tweaks to gunplay and exploration - being able to fight your way through multiple planets is invigorating - are welcome additions to the franchise.

    Borderlands 3 comes with great growth in gameplay, but a safe story that had the opportunity for so much more.

    Borderlands 3 may be a brain-dead story of already dead on arrival memes and a cast that is largely forgettable (Save for Tannis, I still love you for being my socially inept spirit animal), but it’s easily the most satisfying power fantasy of the year thanks to its amazingly tuned gunplay and a sophisticated flow of action that picks up the juvenile slack.

    Borderlands 3 is, quite simply, more Borderlands. That means excessive charming humor, great variety in environments and sidequests and a lot of fun coop action spread throughout. The things that hold the game back are mostly minor annoyances – like the overabundance of everlasting boss fights and the gruesomely tiresome inventory management – but all in all this is a package that simply works.

    Borderlands 3 is a by-the-book sequel that takes no risks. Veteran Borderlands players will embrace it, but others will find that it has not evolved enough.

    The game is boorish, infantile, and violent, and, in refusing to take any sort of consistent stand, is wildly off the mark.

As for framerate drops, just change the performance on visuals to prefer FPS, then it's smooth as butter! Expand

Missions are mostly fun (some tedious) maps are decently sized and of course the guns can be insane as well as your vault hunters abilities. My frames have been fine and I havent ran into any bugs. (Digital download on PS4 Pro). And I've seen people complain about microtransactions and I find that funny because I literally didnt even notice them. Expand

The only downsides it’s the translation for Portuguese that wasn’t great. Besides that’s the game it’s exactly what I expected and iam having a blast playing it. Totally recommend it. Good Job gearbox. Expand

The developers used a comic book art style for the visuals. This comic book graphics style is used as an excuse for developers to be cheap and lazy to develop environments and character models with detail. The story is trash and cringeworthy. The voice acting is awful. The gameplay is so boring and repetitive.

    The multiplayer has garbage matchmaking. The loading times are so ridiculous. The controls are so clunky. Usually first person shooters have smooth controls, and the fact that these developers couldn't make it smooth like other FPS games is embarrassing. The game tries too hard to be funny, it's cringeworthy. I don't recommend this terrible game at all.
