Tales from the Borderlands' finale wraps up a masterful story in an equally masterful package, ending its poignant and witty story on a high note.

This last episode maintains the action, drama, and comedy present throughout the series. It ties up all the major loose ends while leaving just a hint of room for more to come. Most of all, it solidifies Tales from the Borderlands as Telltale's best series to date, a pinnacle of modern adventure gaming.

Was this story consistent in its delivery in any way? Nope, not at all. But the overall effect is satisfying, and I can't pretend I was bored along the way. I don't know that diehard Borderlands fans will appreciate this series' approach, but it's worth a shot if you're into the story more than the shooting. That final act tho.

Tales from the Borderlands has wrapped up its tale of vault hunting, conning, heisting, and finger gunning with the arrival of 'Vault of the Traveler.' And while the fish story element seems to be gone, a surprising amount of replay value and some truly sharp writing makes this some of Telltale's best work to date.

A fitting finale for what might just be the best series Telltale have ever made.
