    Episode 5 is a home run for Telltale and the entire Tales from the Borderlands series. Witty, heart-wrenching and so damn well-written. The perfect final episode to a perfect series. Now we'll wait for season 2.

    Most every major unresolved plot point is given a conclusion in The Vault of the Traveler.

    A Telltale Borderlands game sounds very strange on paper, but this series, and the finale in particular, illustrate exactly why this pairing has worked. The finale sets itself up for a second season, and we very much hope that we get one.

    Despite these gripes, Tales from the Borderlands – Episode 5: The Vault of the Traveler gloriously wraps up one of Telltale’s best stories.

    Technically, this isn't a marvel, though as a closing chapter to this wonderful series, it delivers where it counts.

I have no background knowledge of borderlands series and I am not really a fan of astro cowboy stuffs. Still I have a lot of fun playing this game. All characters including hero and heroine have strong and consistent personalities. The plot are great, and the soundtrack add the atmosphere just in the right moments. The plot is revealed from both hero and heroine's sides of view. The stories they tell are mixed with truth and false, only adding them up tells the whole thing. Tiny spoiler here, I was kind of disappointed that the hero and heroine didn't become a couple~~ Episode 4 is my favorite. The ending is a little weak in my opinion, and that's why I give a 9 instead of a 10. Expand

This is more of an interactive choose your own adventure story than a game. The music in it was really good, and it was decently voice acted. Some of the choices you make can be interesting, but at the end of the day I felt it was trying too hard to be humorous. I didn't really care much for the characters and the humor kind of felt like a big inside joke. A couple parts were genuinely good for a laugh, but much of the time my mind was drifting off to playing actual games during my time with this title. Expand
