Rated 8 out of 10 by Blackfox109 Butt slams, double jumps, and Claptraps galore!
I just got it last night and I'm already falling in love. I started playing playing as Claptrap, and my best friend is playing as Athena. So far it's pretty sweet. First, when I got on the game, it rewarded me with special gear because I had a save file for Borderlands 2. Then I found out that if you logged in with a SHIFT account on Borderlands 2, your account get's linked to the Pre-Sequel, and you get 3 free golden keys. Me and my friend got to the second boss, Deadlift, and he is little too OP(Over-Powered), so be warned, and the OZ Kit boosting is going to get a little bit of getting used to. Though me and my friend got to level 5, and we are super excited to see what will come next in our adventures on Elpis. Anyone who enjoyed the first or second Borderlands will love this one for sure! Shout out to 2K Australia for making this game! I'll see you guys in the Borderlands!
Rated 8 out of 10 by TheGreatWhiteD Borderlands 2.1
If you were a fan of the co-op loot-based and wacky story of Borderlands 2, then this is the game for you. The graphics are nearly identical so dont expect to be impressed in the least. Gameplay is nearly identical to borderlands 2, which can be good or bad depending on how much you enjoyed it. There is a few giggles, but during the games relatively average length of story you wont be crying for laughter as you may have in BL2. That being said, the value and replay value of this game is comparable only to Dragon Age Inquisition and Skyrim in terms of recent games. The story is satisfying, but not too impressive. Overall, i recommend this to RPG Fans who enjoy addictive loot systems and will praise this game as one of the top coop games ever to hit consoles.
Rated 10 out of 10 by asdddasddddasddd Why you should buy it
For people saying that this game should be a dlc they should actually play or beat the game.i have beaten it once now and i'm on true vault hunter mode. for one after beating the game and every side mission i had just about 19 hours on the game compared to borderlands 2 where i had about 25. Now from my knowledge of borderlands and borderlands 2 that no dlc takes me more than a day to beat everything. and in the end all 4 dlc from borderlands 2 took me about 24 hours (6 hrs per dlc) So now if you think that they should have made it a dlc you wrong because how much in game the game has to offer is far Superior to borderlands 2 dlc and if your a true borderlands fan like me then your gonna also do tvhm and beat it again also on all 4 characters so your looking at around 6+ days worth of game play if your up to it also you can do a play through where you only use snipers or something to mix things up and add more time onto the game and on top of all that you can do that with dlc,also farming for legondaries gionaries take time so you can use that to add time onto the game and in the end you will have 12+ days now if that much gameplay should be worth 20$ your high i think that should cost a respectful 60$ plus 30$ for all dlc

At first I was skeptical of the borderlands series not being on pandora, but on the moon instead because typically the moon doesn't have much diverse terrains, but after watching trailers researching, and watching hours of gameplay my worry was put to rest. 2K Australia has really blown even my imagination away they have turned the moon into an amazing looking place with purple red orange, and even blue looking lava with really cool designed area's, but that's not all this game will have cryo weapons, and laser weapons, and new vault hunter's with the seeminly most unique ability's yet. This game is everything that makes Borderlands good and sucessful and something us vault hunters thirst for! ^_^`
Rated 10 out of 10 by Fightingmarmot A great addition to the Borderlands franchise
I'm gonna say it, I love Borderlands. From the funky art style to Claptrap, these games blow me away every time. And this time is no exception. Please note- I have NOT finished the game, and I have only played as the Sheriff/cowgirl character (Only play her if you want an easy game experience, her ability is this bizarre auto aim for the weak spot, and reload 200% faster thing). Gameplay- As you would expect from a Borderlands game, it's funky, quirky, hilarious, and amazing. The storyline is actually pretty cool, seeing Jack as a good guy as he slowly descends into madness. Claptrap, my favorite character ever, makes a return, and does not fail to impress and light up my day. I'm not sure how long the story is, but I've put in a good 25 hours and I think I'm about 3/4ths of the way done, so lots of stuff there. I had a bit of slowdown at points though, Mainly in the main city area, but it was infrequent and lasted about 3 seconds. And now we come to the reason we play- THE GUNS. Oh yes the guns are numerous and awesome. In fact, this time there's so many that I don't think I had the same one for more than 2 hours. Constant upgrades are a huge bonus because I always love getting a boss looking sniper or a bazooka that has increased zoom and accuracy. The characters in this game are the reason I keep playing, even the enemies are just plain funny. But there is a pretty bit downside for me....The breathing mechanic. I always seem to need air, even with a legendary breathing tank that has like 350 breath or something. This actually frustrated me when I was climbing something and had to jump down to get air because I needed to be able to see where I was going. (If you've run out of air, you know what I'm talking about, the game throbs and blacks out. It's pretty cool, but really irritating.) Lastly, vehicles are always fun to use, even when they are a hovercraft thing that can't control for anything *cough*. Sound- From the soundtrack to the music when you enter combat, this game delivers in spades....Not much to say here, it's great. Conclusion- This game is amazing. It keeps that beautiful art style, the guns, vehicles, characters and unique locations. A must have for any Borderlands fan.
Rated 0 out of 10 by DeantheDubious Won't be buying this game.
So, as a long time borderlands fan, I am very disappointed. I know some would say it looks the same as the other two except on the moon, however it's what this game will sadly turn the series into. The gameplay would probably be fun to somebody who plays games like Call of Duty or Battlefield, and that's because they are turning it more into a lackluster pew-pew at the bad guys game rather than a hilarious game with enough of everything scattered around to fulfill what they had planned for it to be. I guess this is probably me and me only, but I really don't want this game. I honestly wish I wanted it. I really do, however the simple fact that it isn't fully written by the same person really disappoints me.

I LOVE the Borderlands games. The first one was great and the second one was even better, fixing a lot of the problems that the first one had. Hopefully I can say the same thing about this one when comparing it to Borderlands 2 (though off-hand I can't really think of any major issues/annoyances from 2 that could be improved on). I'm a little bit nervous because this is a prequel and not the continuation that I've been waiting for... but it would have been surprising if Borderlands 3 had been released so soon anyway. Anyway, I hope this pre-sequel kicks some major gluteous maximus (no swearing on previews) because that's what I'm going to do when I get my hands on it!
Rated 0 out of 10 by MightnMagicToo I've really enjoyed this series
This pre-sequel could be absolutely nothing more than BDLs2 with new characters and locations and loot and I'd still be chomping at the bit for it. The series entries, so far, go right up there with FallOut 3 and Elder Scrolls for replay-ability , and it's the only shooter that has been able to do that for me. And gosh, all the keys and that awesome loot month contest thing and the several holiday themed DLC kept me coming back even more. Ok, Im done gushing. Thanks good game developers, you got my pre-order (a rarity) on this one.
Rated 5 out of 10 by SomeTallGy Should have been 20$ DLC
I am not sure this really warrants a 60$ purchase. Really nothing new mechanically about the game from BL2 aside from low gravity, laser guns and the freeze element (the novelty has already wore off). Loot system still feels like dumpster diving and they still have not added any options for multiplayer looting (still frustrating free-for-all). My friends were excited about this release, I was skeptical -- but bought it anyway to play with them. Kinda starting to wonder if I'll regret it.
