Lost in the mysterious jungle of an Atlas terraforming facility, FionaAfter a dizzying escape from a near-almost-certain-death scenario (involving statuesque buttocks), Rhys and Fiona are in search of another piece of the puzzle that will lead them to the vast riches of Vault key ownership. Lost in the mysterious jungle of an Atlas terraforming facility, Fiona finds help from an unexpected mentor, Rhys continues to share brain-space with the disembodied mind of a dead dictator, and love is in the air. Pursued by the ruthless criminal 'Queenpin' Vallory, and with very little help from Vaughn's accountancy skills (or stellar abs), getting anywhere near the Vault is entirely on you. Expand

    One of the best episodes of the season so far. It delivers some closure, some cliffhanger and tons of fun.

    Technical difficulties notwithstanding this episodic series has given us some of the strongest storytelling we’ve seen thus far from Telltale.

    This review is based on the Xbox One version of the game, which inexplicably ran very poorly in action-heavy scenes. Considering that this is a game that works on mobile devices, the frequent stuttering and pausing was unwelcome, but never quite enough to really ruin the experience.

    A disappointing drop in quality. [Sept 2015, p.111]

    It's disappointing drop in quality for a series that we'd held in high esteem, but 'Catch a Ride' does enough to make sure that the next episode should be considerably more interesting.

    Still funny and backed by excellent characters who are given even more room to grow in our hearts, Episode 3 moves the plot forward inStill funny and backed by excellent characters who are given even more room to grow in our hearts, Episode 3 moves the plot forward in substantial ways. There's a lot going on in this episode. We get introduced to a whole cast of new faces and see some surprising developments. The set-pieces, humor, and villains play out in a way reminiscent of classic action-adventure movies such as Indiana Jones. The way it mixes humor, emotion, and excitement rivals that of even the Uncharted series.

    The real strength of the adventure still lies in it's ability to make us care about the characters involved. I love the moments that show the characters bonding and making these unlikely allies feel more and more like a family. It's sweet, touching, and even a little romantic. As a whole this might be one of the best episodes Telltale has ever made across any of their series, and Tales from the Borderlands continues it's winning streak. The only disappointment comes from the return of some technical issues that have plagued Telltale games for years now, but were surprisingly absent from the previous two episodes. Ultimately though, their presence did little to hinder my enjoyment of "Catch A Ride."
