    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

    If you enjoyed borderlands 2, then this is worth a buy. In a way, it can feel slightly dated. Would have been a 9/10 in 2017

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. This game had so much potential but, Gearbox and 2K don't like their fans because, they squandered the established continuity. Eva is a **** character that is shoehorned into being a siren; Tannis being a siren seems stupid. Gearbox hates you and nerfs all the legendaries the game still a month after release, the performance has not been improved but sure, write it off as more borderlands 50 hours in it kinda sucks.
