Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel Review



Is it worth going vault hunting again, or are some seals best left unbroken? Kind of a toss-up here. Yes, I have said a lot about flaws in Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel and how there were apparently many design choices I would say were bad, but none were such that I would describe the game as bad. It is definitely a game I would not recommend paying full price for; it is best to wait for a good sale, and possibly for a GOTY. Also, play it with others if you can.

The performance was very good while the graphics were traditional Borderlands, but, I feel, are in need of a high-resolution texture pack. Not necessarily one of those packs that require tons of VRAM, but enough so that the textures never look as ugly as some do. The story is what I wanted from it, but has some imperfections. Of course, I tend to be somewhat more critical of stories than most. The gameplay, however, had me shifting from apathy to anger fairly often. It was still not a bad experience, just one that really could have been (and should have been) better.

The Pre-Sequel is not quite a 'fail to recommend' game, but the only way I can comfortably recommend it is on sale or if you are going to play with others (preferably both).
