    What’s brilliant is how this can feed varying playstyles. Sure, I’m a sniper guy, but I’m currently in love with an assault rifle with a scope that FEELS like a sniper rifle. You might dig pistols, but that pistol-like assault rifle? It’s OK to love that, too.

    It delivers on its promise and then some, and if you’re someone who enjoys playing video games alone or with friends, and likes having fun whilst doing so, in that respect, Borderlands 3 is perfect.

    If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. Borderlands 3 is as safe as sequels come. Its gunplay has hardly changed at all and the humour remains as polarizing as ever, but the package in its entirety works. It’s fast, satisfying and constantly addictive as you hoover up new guns and grow your selection of badass vault hunters.

    Borderlands 3 is a great game, but it’s definitely got some technical issues with sadly brings the score down a bit. While my issues weren’t as bad as others I’ve heard about, they’re still annoying at times. However, if you can get past that you’ll find a game that’s more of the same as previous games (especially 2 and pre-sequel), but that’s what made Borderlands great to start with. A great story, reuniting with old friends, and some pretty interesting villains ensures I’ll be coming back to open any more vaults that are found on any planet Gearbox wishes to travel to.

    Borderlands 3 is the ultimate example of playing it safe and giving their core fans exactly what they want to see.

    Much about Borderlands 3 is different, but nothing feels like it’s actually changed.

    If you liked borderlands 2 you will love this game. They basically improved on everything. Graphics are noticeabley better, I recomend playingIf you liked borderlands 2 you will love this game. They basically improved on everything. Graphics are noticeabley better, I recomend playing on performance. Movement, climbing, sliding is awesome. Looting is quicker, you don't have to spam the loot button. Guns feel great. And it still has that great borderlands charm. Expand

    It certainly has its bugs, but nothing game breaking. Besides that it's probably the best co-op shooter out there.

Playing on a one X is buggy as anything, co op is almost always bound to crash every hour or so, the game cuts out, graphical glitches, sound glitches and a lot of the achievements are bugged also.

    Assez étonnant finalement mais ce putain de Bordel lands 3 parvient à être le plus chiant de tous et pourtant, quelques améliorations rendentAssez étonnant finalement mais ce putain de Bordel lands 3 parvient à être le plus chiant de tous et pourtant, quelques améliorations rendent la vie un peu moins pénible (le voyage rapide notamment et l'auto-loot) mais que voulez-vous, tant de lourdeurs y ont été ajoutées et rajoutées pour satisfaire les objectifs du "toujours plus" de la suite de la suite...

    ...qu'à la fin elle se casse, un peu comme nos bijoux de famille parce que ce BL3 nous les casse très sévèrement et très lourdement malgré -pourtant et toujours- le même principe du FPS bourrin aux millions de pétoires et aux 10 000 stats... malgré des combats toujours aussi nerveux et soutenus, une maniabilité toujours convaincante...

    Mais rien de nouveau sous le soleil non plus et on se lasse pour commencer étonnamment rapidement de ces combats, dès les premières heures ! on s'en lasse d'autant plus que l'espèce d'histoire (?) est encore plus conne qu'avant et que les personnages y sont encore plus débiles que dans les épisodes précédents... Plus provocateur sans doute mais surtout beaucoup plus vulgaire, ce BL3 se complaît dans la facilité du kikoolol, ses clins d'oeil lourdingues et son humour de fond de latrines.

    L'ennui se fait donc sentir très lourdement, aussi lourdement par exemple que le temps d'une minute 10 pour aller simplement au menu principal de ce sale jeu de merde. Puis, ensuite 30 à 40 secondes pour enfin charger le niveau ! et on cherche -pourtant- encore les améliorations graphiques de ce jeu cartouneux par rapport aux précédents... à part la résolution en tout cas !

    Mais qu'importe, car la formule ici est à bout de souffle et tout n'y est que répétition et remplissage... et garni de dialogues débiles à n'en plus finir ! et ce n'est même pas un monde ouvert...
