Gearbox's blend of shooter and MOBA is generous and inventive, but the marriage of genres doesn't fully convince.

Classic Gearbox shooting with an experimental MOBA twist, but it's no Borderlands.

In six months' time it may well make its mark, but for now Battleborn's mix of genres suffers from too little content and too much repetition.

Battleborn mixes the FPS and MOBA genres to produce a game that oozes character and original ideas. Just don't expect to love it straightaway.

A varied playable roster isn't enough to salvage a lackluster campaign and clumsy combat

Battleborn is inconsistent but still has an opportunity to shine

The combat is frantic and tense, but often feels samey and superficial. The in-match leveling works wonderfully in the campaign, but can become problematic in multiplayer. The varied cast of heroes adds longevity, but the game still feels relatively content light. With so many moving parts that never quite gel, I found plenty of things to love but just as much to feel confused by and ambivalent about.
