Good Game Posted by: from: on Pretty good game. I like that the art direction isn't the same as every other game. Pretty easy to pick up and play. Fun gameplay. If you like the other Borderlands games you will probably like this one too.

Great sequel to a great game Posted by: from: Jacksonville, Fl on If you played the previous game in the franchise it's not a great departure from there. But there's plenty of new stuff to do new guns and things to shoot at. The humor is just as sharp and twisted as the previous entry.

It gets hairy real fast... Posted by: from: Florida on Don't worry if you already played the previous release in the franchise, this one has plenty of new stuff and tricks to keep you busy, and at the current price it's a great deal. Be wary of the gravity, tricky one.

Pretty good Posted by: from: on It's a decent story along with some improved gameplay mechanics, the characters all have their unique abilities like the previous borderland games but Claptrap seems to be the best of them all without requiring Oxygen and has the ability to copy all previous Borderland heroes specials. I love the improved gunplay and the secret goodies hidden within the game, though i feel like it could have been classified as a DLC than a full fledged stand alone game. Still worth the money when friends are involved :D

More of the same, in a good way. Posted by: from: Rochester, MN on If you have played either Borderlands, or Borderlands 2, then you know exactly what to expect from "Borderlands: the Pre-sequel". The first person shooter game play is virtually unchanged over previous installments, complete with elemental weapons. There are a few notable changes since the last go around however. Depletable oxygen, and no atmosphere environments, make for some high jumping action. This allows for more vertical map design, as well as "from above" slam attacks. The mechanics are fun and definitely enhance the gameplay, while not getting in the way of enjoying the lunatic characters and dialog that has become a hallmark of the series. Unfortunately, the random number generator style loot system is back, and while new additions like "the Grinder" try and give you a use for all that junk, the end game still deteriorates into mindless grinding. If you have played the other games of the series, this installment will give you the handsome Jack backstory and fill in the story gaps between the first two games. If you enjoy the series, it is worth a look. If your new to Borderlands, it is a lot of fun, especially with friends.

Great game Posted by: from: Carson City, MI on A lot of people are complaining that this is Borderlands 2.5... Their complaints are honestly because the engine is the Borderlands 2 engine-- something Gearbox said from the beginning of production. That being said this isn't a glorified overpriced DLC. The Story is just as short/long as any other Borderlands-- it's the side quests and the grinding that have always given the games long lasting gameplay. This game is no exception to the working and lovable formula. New characters that--despite what the 2.5 complainers say-- are entertaining and eccentric. Another complaint other have had, that bosses can't be farmed, either isn't true or has been fixed as of this post-- every time I've been back to a boss area, the boss has been respawned (though I've not actively tried to farm). The added mechanics of being in space in low gravity, fit well and though sometimes annoying fit in they way they were meant to.The only complaint i have is that there seems to be fewer legendary weapons to find and use--and the ones that do exist don't seem to be extremely worthwhile. A great game for sci-fi fans, FPS gamers, and RPG players.

Solid title Posted by: from: on Borderlands the Presequel is a solid game in the series, it doesn't do a ton different but does enough to change it up. As usual a new roster of characters with different abilities and lots of grabbing similar looking guns that have different stats to them Biggest change I guess is there's an oxygen system when you're out and about that has a risk/reward system. Use some O2 to do a move or play it safe and keep it for keeping you alive. The characters are the biggest change it feels and honestly I'm happy with it. It feels like borderlands 2.5 is my complaint but eh, it was worth it for the price I think

Same ol' Borderlands. Posted by: from: on The Pre-Sequel is pretty much what you expect from this series. The only real new mechanic is that you're on the moon, so you get crazier jumps and you need to get Oz (oxygen. Also, 2K Australian developed the game, so there's a lot of Australia references) to not die. Otherwise, pretty rote.
