Tales from the Borderlands is killing it in just about every capacity. The writers, the aesthetic, the voice actors, the gameplay, everything is living up to what I would want out of a non-FPS Borderlands game.
Atlas Mugged retains Telltale's baseline of excellence in writing, but a fairly short duration as well as a more conventional course of action than the riot of Zer0 Sum make for a comparatively tame episode. Fans of the series will be greatly pleased but Telltale seems at times to battle the very expectations its high standards have created.
Just as amazing as the first episode. I think it's easily the best Telltale series so far. It's hard to compare to the emotional appeal that GoT and Walking Dead have, but the humor makes up for the lack of seriousness in an awesome way. Plus, you do still feel attached to the characters. Also, the opening credit sequences are absolutely amazing compared to any other game.
You can feel the creators of some games in certain details or plot twists, but Tales from the Borderlands Episode 2 goes further. It's as if everyone is dancing as hard as they can behind the scenes to put on a show, and you're experiencing the sweat as it drips from their brow. It's the sort of game that feels like a puppy dog desperate to be liked, and you can't help but pet it.
An excellent follow up to the first episode. The story is engaging, the humour is just as sharp as before and it's becoming clear that actions are actually having an impact on the story. I eagerly await the third episode.
As a huge Telltale Games fan, liking all of their major games I have to say this by no means is this the weak link in the chain. Tales from the Borderlands offers unique character changing showing different perspectives and ultimately leave you with little to no time to respond in the dialogue. Episode 2 did not disappoint hitting every key theme especially comedy which sets this Telltale game aside.
I might be getting tired of the Telltale formula for sure, but this is definitely not as good as the original 3, with The Wolf Among Us as my favorite of the three). There doesn't seem to be a whole lot of interaction and it just feels lifeless. There are a few good scenes and some nice dialogue, but the gameplay seems even more sparse than before. I understand it's a point-and-click adventure game, but the interaction is at a minimum. It feels like a graphic novel with a few small "choose your own way" points.
It is probably worth ten bucks for the five episodes, but that is the most I'll pay for Telltale games as that is their value to me personally.
I liked episode one a lot and even though i would say the jokes in episode two are better i have to say the whole episode (especially after waiting 4 months for it) felt extremely underwhelming. My choices for the majority of the episode felt like they had little impact and really meant anything, and the scripted sequences overall felt pretty boring! Plus no nice little cameo of any vault hunters in this episode. The whole episode felt pretty tedious to be honest however, the Handsome Jack moments were great and luckily he was able to help carry the episode. Overall i was relatively uninterested in this episode and i am not really that excited for the next. Wasn't even anything that shocked me or found a surprising twist in the story. TTG please try harder for episode 3.
