    Tales from the Borderlands is just as good as you remember it. The characters feel real and human, while the plot is compelling and worth seeing through to the end. This port could have used a few upgrades or even just kept the choice summaries, but at the end of the day it’s a game I’ll replay for years to come.

    Tales from the Borderlands is arguably Telltale Games' finest hour and easily one of the very best choice-driven narrative adventures available on any system. This is ten glorious hours' worth of top-notch entertainment with a world-class cast, consistently excellent writing that manages to perfectly balance comedy and drama, non-stop twisted action and a cast of kooky characters that are a joy to spend time with. This really is the best the Borderlands universe has ever been, and a game that everyone should experience at least once.

    One of the most surprising and appreciated of the "old" works of TellTale also arrives on Nintendo Switch. Tales from the borderlands is surprising and exhilarating at the same time.

    Tales from the Borderlands is a game that shows all the years that have passed since its first release, yet the particular hybrid between a point and click and a looter shooter still retains an undeniable charm. Thanks to the high-level writing or the ability to unite in a simple and immediate way so different game worlds, Tales from the Borderlands is a graphic adventure that, despite everything, is recommended both for lovers of the genre and for Borderlands fans, in the hope to be able to welcome, sooner or later, even a second season.

    Tales from the Borderlands is a port that can be improved on Switch, with one especially notable loss: the fact that you can no longer see the decisions of other players at the end of the chapters. But, if we ignore issues like that, we will enjoy an interesting adventure.

    Luckily for Tales from the Borderlands, its minor annoyances aren't nearly enough to mar the incredibly rewarding narrative experience. While still humorous, the writing is much more nuanced than that of the mainline Borderlands games, offering an impressive amount of character development. The whole cast interacts in ways unmatched by the rest of the series, and achieves some of the most impactful narrative beats in the whole franchise, all while having player choices impact future events.

    Great soundtrack, great story, great gameplay. Wonder why i miss it when it released on many platforms years ago. But better late than never.

    The game is an important part of borderlands lore and, if you are a fan, it's a mustplay.
