    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.

    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.

    Maybe it’s not the most innovative game out there, but Borderlands 3 is a total must have for loot shooter fans.

    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.

    Although it might seem a simple more of the same, Borderlands 3 is the maximum expression of what the brand represents: massacres, loot and pure mayhem. Some flaws in technic and storytelling prevent the game from getting a better score.

    Borderlands 3 sticks to the formula established in previous games. Despite suffering from technical issues and some pretty obnoxious characters and dialogue, the improvements to core mechanics, a great variety of locations and enemies, and series-best procedurally generated loot make it a more than a worthy sequel that should enthrall fans for dozens of hours.

    I’ve got very mixed feelings about Borderlands 3. Overall I like it and it’s fun to play, but it could have been so much more and the writing feels like time traveling back to your high school days and being surprised and a little disappointed at how immature everyone is.

It took me several attempts to finally be able to switch if back to DX11 mode so I could actually play the game. Why the hell does it not have a safe mode or a preload settings like it did in the previous games? Having said all that, I'm still enjoying the game. There are a few stutters here and there, running in 4K Ultra setting locked at 60FPS, but not enough to kill my enjoyment of the game. Expand

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. As of this review I've beaten the campaign 3 times on normal and 1 time on tvhm with over 150 hours of play time. This game at launch was a 7/10. The campaign is okay. 2 really cringey characters ( Ava and Vaughn) that made me despise the game and wish I could skip cutscene (yeah that's not a thing). Post launch has been a nightmare. This game has 2 major flaws. 1. Major performance issues with the echo. 2 a game that says they have a billion guns but you can only keep 50 of those guns in the bank. Neither issues is being addresses by the incompetent team working on the game. Instead they nerf drop rates, nerf items, nerf characters, and nerf fun. The first event week was a joke. Overall the game was fun but has been completely ruined by the dev's lack of understanding what a pve looter is. Expand
