    The game play sucked. I yearned to have the game start all the way to the end. 4hrs of anticipation waiting for the game to start...waiting for a Chance to play. On the bright side. It's borderlands so I enjoyed real pleasure playing it anyway...it started becoming fun 1/2 way through. Even with these negatives, I could not put it down. I'll play it again soon but I'll never get over not getting to play the old game. Oh it's very funny. The family laughed a lot as I made one bad decision after another.

    The Borderlands game series experience has always been a cartoonish one,- with everything from humorous subtleties to hilarious dark humor throughout (all the while having some pretense of serious plot lines and danger at every turn). Tales from the Borderlands has all of that, but puts more emphasis on the stories or "tales". Not entirely unlike it predecessors, but not as intense. Entertaining gameplay that should take you a while. Don't rush through it, as you may miss some interesting things, and the game likely has limited replay value.

    A Funny Trip

    Telltale Games funniest series to date! Relateable characters full of personality and charm with a story that is completely whacky and unrealistic but manages to fit in nicely to the entertaining Borderlands universe. Telltale's choppy and dated gaming engine made the game less enjoyable for me on the Xbox One. The continued freezes and stutters made the experience a little less engaging.

    One of my favorite games that I've played in the last year, no question. I normally stick to games that are more fast-paced (FPS's, action-adventure), but am so glad that I ventured outside the norm. Tales from the Borderlands was hilarious and poignant; the music and graphics were brilliant; and the stories and characters have stayed with me, in a good way, long after having completed the game.

    Par for Telltale course

    One of the better games to come from Telltale. It has its tech/running issues but not enough to sully the experience. However, I won't be so lenient with their most recent titles (Batman, WD Season 3 etc.). Their games need to be polished at this point. In general, I'm a big fan of Telltale Games. Hear me talk about and review them on an iTunes podcast about video games, 2v1 Podcast.

    This game was interesting for me because it was my first time playing a game that is mostly story based. The little choices you make do make a difference but overall you cannot just walk around and do what you want. There is a direct progression of story. It was an amazing story too! If you love the Borderlands world, Id recommend playing this!

    I do not care for the Borderlands franchise as I feel it's worn thin, but this is definitely the best Borderlands game because it's nothing like the other 3. If you enjoyed Telltale's previous games like Sam & Max, Back to the Future, The Wolf Among Us, The Walking Dead, etc., don't hesitate to pick this up even if you're not familiar with the Borderlands games.

    Awesome Telltale Game with Borderlands Humor!

    This is an awesome game with the typical sarcastic humor found in Borderlands, with the enthralling gameplay found in other Telltale games. This is not an action/shooter game like Borderlands 1, 2, or the The Pre-sequel - so be aware that if you're looking for that type of game, look elsewhere.
