    Worth every penny and then some

    I've played well over 1000 hours of the Borderlands games on various platforms, and this version has been my favorite experience yet. You get everything in one neat package (well, except BL1 of course, which I believe deserves the remaster treatment but time will tell). The PC versions of these games may have a slight graphical edge if your hardware is up to snuff, but I've always been a console gamer at heart, and this collection rekindled my interest in the franchise after I'd become a bit burnt out from playing too much. Between this and the final episode of Tales... coming next week I think I'm good for a little while, but can't wait for the next installment!

    Borderlands two is the best in the series, so it is fitting, and nice, that it received this wonderful update. Nice visuals and runs at 60fps. The inclusion of every piece of DLC is wonderful and will keep you playing for hours. The port of Pre-Sequel leaves a lot to be desired. There are framerate dips and it just doesn't run as smooth as the second game. Additionally, it just isn't as good as the second game. It is shorter overall, and the missions don't have much variety. The inclusion of some annoying features (oxygen) also hurts the game, Great package overall, especially if you haven't played either game, and very much a value package. Highly recommended.

    I have always liked the Borderlands games. I picked up the first one in a discount bin for $20 for the PS3 and thought it was fun. With the pre-sequel, you get the new game plus borderlands 2 with all the content. Since I have played the second, I have mostly played the first. it's a fun game and they did a good job of mixing it up some. I have been impressed with how good it looks on the PS4 and it plays well. If you are looking for a decent FPS with a large area to explore, this is a good game for you!

    I started with Borderlands 2 on the Vita and am hooked. I started cross saving between my Vita and PS3 (I got a copy free with PS+ last year), but got annoyed with the fact that I didn't have the DLC on my PS3. So I started looking into buying a GOTY edition for my PS3 when I stumbled on to the Handsome Collection. It was on sale and with the 20% off Gamer Rewards bonus, I paid a third of the retail price! 2 excellent games and all of their DLC. Looks great and plays great as well. If you do Facebook or Twitter get some golden key codes, just remember if you're cross saving they will not cross over. Thanks to BestBuy for the great deal.

    A Great Combo Pack

    For those who missed Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel (which released late in the PS3/Xbox 360 life cycle), this collection is a must. While it would have been nice to have gotten the original Borderlands in this collection too, this is still a great value for the asking price at this point. Borderlands 2 was a GOTY candidate when it released a few years ago, and this collection includes all the additional content that made its way to the game post-release. Between these two games, you can easily squeak out 100 hours of gameplay. Highly recommended if you love loot-based games, irreverent humor, and a distinctive FPS art style.

    I don't have much experience with the Borderlands games other than borrowing the first game from a friend back on PS3, but I didn't get a chance to play it. Now, I found this when it was on sale here at Best Buy for just $12 with my Gamer Club membership. I've only played the Pre-Sequel so far and have had a lot of fun. My friends have told me that Borderlands 2 is even better. It even has all the DLC for both games. I just wish it had the first game as well so I could experience all three on PS4. I guess I'll just have to try it on PS3 one day.

    Special RPG

    Bloodborne is as glorious as it is grotesque, a harsh and unyielding exercise in getting battered mercilessly while feeling encouraged the whole painful way. While very much a Souls game through and through, the switch from methodical and slow progression to a faster, ultimately more savage environment provides just enough of a twist to give it a wholly unique feel, a more empowering journey, for both the player and the opposition. Bloodborne is something truly special – a barbaric horror RPG that will giveth and taketh away in perfect measure, wrapped up in a perverse world that will refuse to let you go!

    The Handsome Collection is an incredible value at any price. Two huge adventures with all of their DLC bonus content included in one package. Each game has a big selection of varied characters for you to play as, alone or with friends, leading to countless hours of shooty fun. The Borderlands series' trademark "comic come to life" graphical style really pops on the PS4. Bright colors, crisp lines. I couldn't be happier. For a collector such as myself, who is focused on owning the most content-complete version of a given game, the Handsome collection is THE way to own Borderlands 2 and the Pre-Sequel.

    Huge: Gaming for hundreds of hours

    I bought this for my son, who played Borderlands 1 & 2 in the prior generation of consoles. This package includes Borderlands 2 & their latest release, the Pre-sequel in addition to all the additional content. In summary, he tells me there are hundreds of hours of gameplay. If you're a fan of the Borderlands series, this is something you'll be happy with if you want to dive into it again. The graphics are nicely cleaned up and you have it all in one release to enjoy. It is a good value, especially if you get it on sale (I got it on a Daily Deal from Best Buy at $34.99, plus 20% Gamersclub discount -- making it $27.99).

    Play this game if you didn't play it on old-gen consoles. One of the best parts about purchasing this collection is that it comes with absolutely every single piece of DLC from 2 and the Pre-Sequel. That's basically like going, "Hey! Remember that thing those suckers paid for back in the day!? Well... here it is for free, and in high def." Basically, get this game. Also, the humor is top notch for a video game. It's the one game that I've actually laughed at, when all other video games make me feel like I'm listening to a poorly retold playground joke that my younger sibling just heard at school.

    Must have for borderlands fans

    I couldn't help but be impressed by the sheer volume of content it wraps up: two great action RPG-shooters, 12 well-differentiated playable characters, and hundreds of hours of story and side missions that take you from Pandora to the moon and back again.Aside from the 1080p resolution and beefed up textures and lighting effects, nothing has changed here for Borderlands 2 or The Pre-Sequel. They're all just as generous with loot, they still feature some of the best humor in modern gaming, and they both still wield irreverent goofiness like a deadly weapon. Honestly a must have

    Excellent 1st person shooter

    So far I've played the first Borderlands and Borderlands 2 and have had nothing but fun with both of them. I'm a fan of 1st person shooters and this one is done right. A silly story and crazy weapons make exploring the futuristic worlds a blast. The art style doesn't go for the traditional realism seen in most games these days and I like that it's something different. If you like 1st person shooters then you should absolutely pick up this game, which is one heck of a bargain considering it's three full games for much less than the price of just one average game.

    PC version re-release

    I had Borderlands 2 for PS3, and even though I loved the game it had many drawbacks for the aging system. This re-release is essentially the PC version but ups every aspect of the game and also lets me transfer my game saves to pick-up where I left off. Not a fan of the pre-sequal but it's available. Also, why isn't the first game included in this re-release is beyond me. If your expecting something new from the series, this is not it.... but if you enjoyed the original games or want a more narrative driven FPS than you can't go wrong with this collection.

    I've spent close to 500 hours playing this game and I've yet to unlock everything it has to offer. You can skip all the side missions and finish the game in about 30 hours but who would want to do that? You get ALL the DLC that was released for Borderlands 2 and the pre sequel. You can also import your Borderlands 2 character from your PS3. I want to write a longer review to try and do this game justice but I've got to get back to playing it!!!!

    This package is a great deal. You get a former GOTY in Borderlands 2 plus all of the DLC AND The Prequel. For those who have played Borderlands 2 previously, this is the definitive version of the game. For those who haven't, this game has it all. It's got great graphics, fun gameplay, interesting characters with funny dialogue, and great character customization. My only complaints against this game are that The Pre-Sequal tends to lag quite a bit at times. Pick this game up if you're looking for a couch co-op shooter or a dude bro shooter for weeknights with your friends.

    Great Addition to Next-Gen

    The game requires you to install one or both of the titles so be sure to have drive space available. There is also a 16 GB update that's required on day 1. But once you get past the long install, it's all smooth sailing. The games look great. Graphics look ever so slightly more crisp than previous editions and the frame-rate is buttery smooth. Having all of the DLC available from the get go is great. Superb value if you haven't played through everything the original games had to offer. I can't wait to try out the local split screen.

    If you waited for the inevitable release of The Handsome Collection on current-gen consoles, you're in luck! The collection comes with two full games and all of the DLC up to this point. If you're a BL fan, you know what you're in for. If not, this is a good way to jump on board. Saves and characters from BL2 and last-gen versions of the pre-sequel can be easily transferred and the HD cel-shaded graphics look great. Shooting stuff and opening boxes has rarely been this fun. Lots of old and new characters and some of the funniest video game dialogue just add to the fun.

    By far one of the best action RPG games there is and not only that with this collection you get two of them with all the sweet content throw in for free on top. This is one of those games where even if you're not a collector series you would deeply appreciate it, it's kind of game you can play over and over again and each time play as someone different . Plus Best Buy always have great sales that's how I got this one and with the money I save I plan to go back to BestBuy and get another game thank you BestBuy xoxoxo .

    There is nothing I hate more than paying for a game that I can finish quickly and this package is not that. There is literally hundreds of hours of gameplay in this package. Even though I purchased Borderlands 2 previously with the season pass there is even more content that they continued to add that I want to get back into. I have not had the chance to play the Pre-Sequel yet so to get it in this package with all the DLC is great. If you have not stepped into the world of Borderlands now is a great time with the Handsome Collection you will not regret it.

    For the usual price of admission you get both Borderlands 2 and The Pre-Sequel along with every piece of DLC released for both of them, even the one dollar costume packs theyve released about fifty of since launch. Not to mention you get the new claptrap DLC for TPS which released on the same day as the game. I've played this series more than any other games out there. I know Borderlands 2 almost word for word and I still get more excited about playing them again than anything else on the PS4 right now. This is 100% worth your time.
