I don't know how to explain it but its just great the characters it's like one big young and cheek inside joke and the characters are top notch. I do wish they would go a little deeper with maybe large character missions, and that's not really a criticism I just want more. And I have to talk about the co star of the show loot aka baaaaddddaaaasssss guns!!! The series has evolved so much and I like they way it's going. I can't wait for the next entry..

They basically improved on everything. Graphics are noticeabley better, I recomend playing on performance. Movement, climbing, sliding is awesome. Looting is quicker, you don't have to spam the loot button. Guns feel great. And it still has that great borderlands charm.

It's everything you'd expect, with small little tweaks here and there to improve some of the downsides of the old games. As for framerate drops, just change the performance on visuals to prefer FPS, then it's smooth as butter!
I love Borderlands like all parts and this game is good it is so worked out that Borderlands 2 seems to be the last century 10/10
What’s brilliant is how this can feed varying playstyles. Sure, I’m a sniper guy, but I’m currently in love with an assault rifle with a scope that FEELS like a sniper rifle. You might dig pistols, but that pistol-like assault rifle? It’s OK to love that, too.

Each time it crashes you risk a corrupted save game. At the point where I'm at in the story line the game has consistently crashed every 10 - 30 minutes. After reading others experiences outside of metacritic, looks like the developer has 0 plans to fix this. This game is entirely a cash grab. Spend 60-100 dollars for a game that crashes every 10-30 min.

Perhaps the best way to describe Borderlands 3 is to say it is exactly the game you would expect it to be. There are plenty of familiar faces, and it has the same sort of ambiance and atmosphere. People will still keep going into quest after quest for the same reasons (loot). While it might be difficult to accept the new villains after a great one like Handsome Jack, the twins are fine. Most importantly, the new Vault Hunters work well and the game is as fun to play alone as it is with friends. It looks, works, and plays well, and fans of the series will be more than happy to join the Crimson Raiders.
Borderlands 3 has surpassed the bar that its predecessor had set. The story is grand in scale, the humor is on-point and updated to 2019, weapons are diverse and the new Vault Hunters are unique in every way. Every BL-fan must pick this game up.
A gargantuan amount of content and great gameplay (improved thanks to the new consoles capabilities) makes this the best version possible of a legendary game. The name is no lie: this is the ultimate edition of Borderlands 3.
Finally realising its potential, Borderlands 3 goes from great to essential on PlayStation 5, thanks to its new visual features, DualSense implementation and the ability to have up to four players blasting their way through the game locally. If you've been holding off playing Borderlands 3 until now, your watch has ended.
Make no doubt about it, this is the definitive way to play Borderlands 3. Whether you’re venturing into the Borderlands for the first time, or revisiting now that the technical issues are fixed, you’re in for a hell of a time.
Borderlands 3 is a no-brainer for those who already own the game to experience what the PlayStation 5 is capable of. The Resolution Mode visually adds so much more and the Performance Mode gives players a chance to try out the 120hz mode on a compatible display. The story remains the same, but the DLC will add many more ways to play for users. The DualSense Controller with the PS5 is the true game changer here and it’s further bolstered by the 3D Audio. Gearbox no doubt took advantage of the new hardware to unleash the proper Borderlands 3.
If you’re expecting a great evolution to the series, you might be a little disappointed with what Borderlands 3 brings to the table. But if you’re happy to jump into more of the same, albeit on a greater scale, you’ll find a lot to love here. And on the new generation of consoles, Borderlands 3 shines better than ever. Playing at 60fps with up to 4K resolution really makes a world of difference; Borderlands 3 has never been more of a pleasure to shoot your way through.
Borderlands 3 is the best game Gearbox has ever made. The weapons are interesting and goofy, the battles are intense and tricky, and the multiple open-worlds are beautiful and full of challenging missions. For Chinese gamers, it might be the most immersive 3A game in recent years because of the wonderful Chinese voice acting.

It delivers on its promise and then some, and if you’re someone who enjoys playing video games alone or with friends, and likes having fun whilst doing so, in that respect, Borderlands 3 is perfect.

The guns, action and story are all amazing (and tbh are the biggest part of FPS looter shooters). The only down side is the frame rate drops, but if you're like me then a few (and they are few and far between) frame rate drops won’t be a buzzkill. I can also imagine future updates to fix this. Mostly every game has its issues at launch so don’t let a few frame rate drops stop you from buying this game. It’s been a blast playing alone and with friends!

Borderlands 3 is more of the same in the best possible way, while some small tweaks to gunplay and exploration - being able to fight your way through multiple planets is invigorating - are welcome additions to the franchise.
Borderlands 3 isn’t a franchise altering game, but it does manage to combine great gunplay, an expansive world, and stellar co-op into a great overall package.

I hadI really had a good time with my friends playing through the entire story and DLCs. One of the best coop-experiences in my entire life. I had some instances of technical issues, bugs and disconnects that were very annoying when they occurred, hence not a 9.
Borderlands 3 may be a brain-dead story of already dead on arrival memes and a cast that is largely forgettable (Save for Tannis, I still love you for being my socially inept spirit animal), but it’s easily the most satisfying power fantasy of the year thanks to its amazingly tuned gunplay and a sophisticated flow of action that picks up the juvenile slack.
Borderlands 3 is, quite simply, more Borderlands. That means excessive charming humor, great variety in environments and sidequests and a lot of fun coop action spread throughout. The things that hold the game back are mostly minor annoyances – like the overabundance of everlasting boss fights and the gruesomely tiresome inventory management – but all in all this is a package that simply works.
This is a really great action first person shooter RPG! I love the environments, the characters and the widely large selection of guns gunsThis is a really great action first person shooter RPG! I love the environments, the characters and the widely large selection of guns guns guns. Highly recommend it!
Borderlands 3 is a great game, but it’s definitely got some technical issues with sadly brings the score down a bit. While my issues weren’t as bad as others I’ve heard about, they’re still annoying at times. However, if you can get past that you’ll find a game that’s more of the same as previous games (especially 2 and pre-sequel), but that’s what made Borderlands great to start with. A great story, reuniting with old friends, and some pretty interesting villains ensures I’ll be coming back to open any more vaults that are found on any planet Gearbox wishes to travel to.
If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. Borderlands 3 is as safe as sequels come. Its gunplay has hardly changed at all and the humour remains as polarizing as ever, but the package in its entirety works. It’s fast, satisfying and constantly addictive as you hoover up new guns and grow your selection of badass vault hunters.
Borderlands 3 is more Borderlands, and all the loot that entails. This proper sequel improves upon the formula with more guns, but more importantly, a stretch of unique planets to kill enemies on. The new planets offer more visual variety and a great evolution of enemy encounters. The tuning is clearly meant for more than one player, making a punitive experience at times for the solo Vault Hunter. Despite the formula growing a bit stale, Gearbox has expanded upon it in the right way, resulting in a great Borderlands experience.
Those new to Borderlands will find some aspects confusing at first – Borderlands 3 is minimal when it comes to tutorials – but if they persist, they will end up luxuriating in the joyous, tongue-in-cheek, comic book-influenced fun it provides. Sure, it fails to turn the franchise into something new and futuristic in gameplay terms. But why would it, when its original conception was already immaculate?
Borderlands 3 is a by-the-book sequel that takes no risks. Veteran Borderlands players will embrace it, but others will find that it has not evolved enough.
Positives: The gameplay is a massive improvement over the previous games in the series, and the performance upgrades and use of thePositives: The gameplay is a massive improvement over the previous games in the series, and the performance upgrades and use of the dualsense's capabilities are a nice addition to what was already a pretty solid game on PS4. Also, the playable characters are all really fun to play as, and the worlds are just beautiful to look at. From the vast deserts of Pandora, to the metroplex of Promethea, everything in the visual department is a definite upgrade, and the game looks STUNNING. The combat feels fun and varied, a big plus too with how varied the playable characters are.Negatives: The writing, characters, and storytelling compared to Borderlands 2 leaves a lot to be desired. The main villains being what are essentially evil psychotic twitch streamers could have been handled a lot better than it actually was, and instead they come off as characters who I want to kill just to shut them up and not because they're evil and despicable like Handsome Jack was in BL2. Additionally the sidequests, while being pretty fun and imaginative in BL2, were bland and felt very same-y in the newest entry, to the point that I just stopped doing them. The general writing of the game has taken a bit of a nosedive from "amazing" to "adequate". I laughed a lot through the many playthroughs I had in BL2, but I almost don't want to make a new character in BL3 simply from how much I cringed at the dialogue.It's a lot more fun when you have a friend to play with (aka someone to cringe at the dialogue alongside), but this is where I noticed a number of other issues too. In local co-op the writing is simply too small to read unless you have a large TV, something which I do not play my PS5 on simply for convenience reasons and due to it being a part of a general gaming setup. The writing is so small in fact that I had to turn up the subtitles to max size and even then had to lean forward to read some of the other text. Small visual glitches also popped up during a local co-op playthrough, where the corner of my friend's side of the screen would warp to a pixelated black behind the ammo counter if facing a certain direction, but only on Promethea thus far. While not a game-ruining thing, it's certainly caused a bit of confusion.Overall, the game is pretty good as a looter shooter, but it doesn't necessarily feel like the Borderlands I'm used to. The gameplay salvages what would otherwise be a mediocre game, and the choice of playing it with friends also alleviates some of the issues I have with the game. Though, the writing is still pretty bad and can get on one's nerves very quickly. I haven't got anything to say about the DLCs as I haven't gotten any of them and probably won't.
This game feels dated. If it was relesed 10-15 years ago, it would've been great. Today one should expect more from an AAA title. The thingThis game feels dated. If it was relesed 10-15 years ago, it would've been great. Today one should expect more from an AAA title. The thing that keeps it interesting now is the comedy writing. The humor is (and has always been) great, and I love that. The voice acting is top notch.What about the game itself? Lots of fun guns to keep the gameplay fresh. But, the problem is that the game world feels lifeless and empty. The game is divided into small areas with loading between each zone (who even does this in 2021? This mechanic belongs to the PS2 era). Because of this, the map system is very frustrating, since you need to navigate to fast travel A LOT between the small areas.Kudos for implementing a 120hz mode, even though the game seem poorly optimized (The resolution drop is just not worth it). In 60fps mode, the game starts struggling when increasing the FOV (Default:75). Real fps probably between 45-50. I think with this kind of cel shaded cartoonish style, this game could've been ran much better on the XSX.This is one of those games that still works because of creative people behind it. But when you start playing you're constantly reminded that this game still feels stuck in the PS2/early PS3 era (except for the increased resolution in quality mode). Can only recommend if you're a huge Borderlands fan.I'd really dig this game if gearbox would've:- Created a seamless open world instead of small areas with loading between (That would fix the map frustrations as well)- Optimized the game better on consoles- Made the world more interesting, more NPCs, interactions, generally add stuff to make the world more life like.- Improved upon the driving of vehicles (feels archaic)
I liked the game. It was a solid 7 to 8/10 worse than Borderlands 2 but very cringe. However, the latest DLC is truly bad. The only thing forI liked the game. It was a solid 7 to 8/10 worse than Borderlands 2 but very cringe. However, the latest DLC is truly bad. The only thing for the Director's Cut are the weapons, which are somewhat interesting and/but very strong (e.g. Plasma Coil), but the idea is utter blandness (2/10). This costs the same as story DLC's? There is no way to rate the DLC so my overall score for the game decreases.
For single player I'd give this a high score, but that's not what I bought it for. I bought it for vertical split screen co-op to play withFor single player I'd give this a high score, but that's not what I bought it for. I bought it for vertical split screen co-op to play with my husband. Horizontal split screen should be outlawed, it's horrible, the fonts are so small as to be illegible without sitting way too close to the TV and the lag in big fights or when accessing menus is awful! I'm not ditching the game as I expect patches will improve most of it over time, but they really need to add vertical split to the co-op.
After 3 patches on the XBOX series X, the game still crashed like 7 times and freeze my console twice to the point that I had to do a hard Reset.i finally finished this broken game. Not only the story is terrible bad, like most of the characters, are unlikeable and flat, but they also ruined the BL2 characters they have no roll in the history and they personalities feel off as if they are not important anymore. If you want true BL2 sequel you most likely not founded here nor in the over $99 of DLC and season passes. Is is really ashame since the "gun-play" is still very solid but you can't skip the awful in-game cutscenes or the faceless final of the story which is a complete rip-off of the iron giant/reckit ralph, I don't know what when wrong when supervising the story but it was like watching a tv show from the 80s but like bad 80s shows not the good one.

Gearbox is at their best when they’re engineering the act of shooting something. If their game would just shut up and let the gleeful gunplay speak for itself, Borderlands would go a lot further. Instead, the gunplay is clogged up with meaningless loot, smugly unfunny jokes, and lots of using the same ol’ gun while waiting for the parsimonious skill point drip to finally drop. Where’s the glee in all that?
