    As its own name suggests, this is a handsome collection, since it includes two great games for the price of one. There are very few remasters that can look at it face to face without feeling ashamed.

    Providing gamers with two very fun and lengthy games within Borderlands: The Handsome Collection, there is no doubt that this is the ultimate Borderlands experience for everyone.

    Borderlands: The Handsome Collection represents the definitive opportunity to enjoy two of the most beloved games out there, and the most complete anthology of downloadable content in one package. You can play it on the couch with up to 3 friends to enjoy hours upon hours of healthy jokes and gaming references. Truly, a love letter to nerds.

    Borderlands: The Handsome Collection offers copious content, two whole games, co-op options, local multiplayer up to four players and cross-save. There are slight differences from the original beyond the visual enhancements, so only those who haven't played the original games could show true interest for Gearbox compilation.

    While those with no love for the franchise will, unsurprisingly, find nothing for them here, it does – as a result of the visual upgrades – provide a handsome jumping on point for newcomers, as well as a great way for the Borderlands faithful to catch up on anything that they might have missed.

    Borderlands: The Handsome Collection isn’t the greatest remaster ever, nor is it the worst.

    All in all, this isn’t a bad collection of two fun titles from last-gen, but it hardly feels like a must-have upgrade for anyone that’s played through both Borderlands 2 and The Pre-Sequel already.

    For 60 bucks you get 2 games with all of the dlcs. This game has a ton of replayability to boot.

If you also take into account the sheer amount of game play to be had hours-wise, this is a steal. Especially if you haven't already played the originals. Hard to argue with that for 60 bucks. Expand

    A must have if you haven't play the versions for Xbox 360 or PS3 (or Vita for Borderlands 2)

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. So I'm mainly going to place my opinion on the pre sequel and I'll say this about Borderlands 2; it's good, moving on. So if it's unknown to you what happened in Borderlands 2 than the pre-sequel will be confusing for you the basic jest is there's a guy called Jack he's incredibly evil and a huge a**-h*** and on Pandora there's room for only one so you kill him. In the pre sequel however they decide to tell you (in more detail) about his uprising and how he became Handsome Jack. This seems to be a good idea, the problem is several plot holes or unclear 'things', you see (spoilers) Angel back in Borderlands 1 was an ai but in Borderlands 2 it comes out that she's actually a Siren and Jack's daughter, and in a echo recording he's still Handsome Jack (not Jack, there's a difference) and pulling the strings of everything yet it turns out (according to the pre-sequel) Jack turned into Handsome Jack AFTER the events of Borderlands 1 but the recording indicated this was before Borderlands 1 even with someone telling Jack to put his mask back on, confused? I sure am. Theres a bunch of these little flaws that depending on your need for the storytelling aspect of these games will irritate you, for me it's a pretty big let down as I feel like they're forcing us to feel sympathetic to Jack but I just got confused more than anything. So another thing about the story is the characters and how I generally don't care for most of them, we already know what happens to mostly everybody (save the narrator of the story, Athena) we play as NPCs from Borderlands 2 who are villains and you end up killing them so right off the bat I didn't care for any of them since I knew where they'd end up making me immediately detaching me from caring for them.
    So another big part of the game is the 'shoot n' loot' which is still there so if your here for that than go ahead, but they also added another part of the game as your on the moon that means zero gravity! And the constantly depleting oxygen supply you have... The zero G is great and is pretty fun to just jump shoot and stomp enemies but the constant draining oxygen sort of hampers the experience for me, one major thing that got me about this game was how cluttered and tight everything was, compared to Borderlands 2 (sorry for comparing them) there was the all important quiet time, kill a bunch of enemies and enjoy the sweet release of nothing just walk around looting exploring, here though the constant oxygen depletion meant I had to be quick which means I barely had time to myself and there was the constant quests are on my back with also a GIANT SPACE LAZER SHOOTING THE MOON!!! Making me feel like I had something constantly weigh on me to a certain point of where some jacka** asked me to do a mission I did it and the place was at the other end of the map with no detail of how to get there constantly shooting enemies with oxygen running out and then when I turn in the mission i get another telling me to go back and do something, at which point I said "F*** this!" and focused on the main story, but later on near the end stretch I was really hyped going into alien ruins with all my friends saying 'good luck' and I was super excited but the immersion was quickly destroyed when I saw a bunch of quest pop up making me want to rush through the game not giving a crap, I got this again when I went into said alien ruins thinking "HOLY COW THIS IS AMAZING!" But this was swept away as AGAIN! More quests showed up. And the ending, obviously brought no satisfying conclusion and bringing up more questions than answers all along the way. Needless to say this game fails in my eyes as a single player game, Co-op (as usually recommended for these games) is probably 100x better I'll never know because of how un-motivated I am to drag myself through the game that I already know how it ends up. Even with this I still say it's good just not as good as Borderlands 2, even with that the handsome edition is a must buy as your getting the Pre-Sequal AND Borderlands 2 ALL DLC which if I'm doing math correctly Borderlands 2 is like 100$ with all all it has! So grab a friend (tie him/her/it up if you must! The cops will understand) and have a blast!
