Tales from the Borderlands - Season One Reviews
In capturing the spirit of Borderlands and setting the standard for comedy games, Tales knocks down every target it means to hit. A must-play for those who loves episodics, and also fun.
The story crafted by Tales isn't just a fine Borderlands sequel, but one of the most enjoyable sci-fi adventure stories in recent memory.
The Story, the characters, the amazing sequences, that had me wanting to see more amazing sequences, gripping me on the edge of my seat, wanting more. Tales from the Borderlands will be a game, that will forever be etched in my memory, as one of the best.
[SPOILERS] Tales from the Borderlands has proven itself to be the best thing that Telltale Games has ever concocted. Better than The Walking Dead, The Wolf Among Us, and even Back to the Future: The Game this collaboration with Gearbox Software wasn't just a smart business move, but a testament to what sort of greatness can come out of a powerful collaboration.
The best opening from a Telltale game to date and a promising start to a new episodic series.
Tales from the Borderlands concludes with some series-defining moments and choices, solidifying it as one of Telltale's best, if not the strongest offering the studio has put forth in several years. Telltale's take on Gearbox's beloved series is the most heartfelt story told on Pandora, and is full of incredible moments of comedy and grueling choices.
Tales from the Borderlands is just as good as you remember it. The characters feel real and human, while the plot is compelling and worth seeing through to the end. This port could have used a few upgrades or even just kept the choice summaries, but at the end of the day it's a game I'll replay for years to come.
With Tales from the Borderlands, Telltale Games has struck gold. Easily its best effort since the first season of The Walking Dead, Tales marries the series cheeky humour and laugh-out laughs with some properly touching and poignant moments. This is as essential as it gets.
Naysayers of their formula won't be quieted with another game in Telltale's library that has especially little to offer for major player choices, but fans who have so far enjoyed their style of video game will absolutely enjoy this one, even if they aren't a Borderlands fan. It's the best Borderlands story told so far. More startlingly, it's the best Telltale story told so far, and should, with any luck, provoke a rise in the ripe genre of comedy video games.
Obviously, fans of Borderlands will get much more out of it, but even if you haven't played the first person shooter RPGs, you'll still have a great time seeing this world in the eyes of a couple of cons. It is well acted, has tons of style, and brings a great story to the table. I highly suggest this adventure game to both fans of Borderlands and fans of adventure games.
I had expected Tales from the Borderlands to be just a side story, something inconsequential in the grand scheme of the Borderlands franchise, but there are events within Tales from the Borderlands that will have substantive effects on the Borderlands universe should they bleed over into any further games set on Pandora.
From the very start, I was expecting a fun, light-hearted take on a series that already doesn't quite take itself too seriously; by the end, I didn't know what to expect from a series that kept me guessing at every possible turn, and more importantly provided one of the funniest and most enjoyable game experiences of the year. Even in theater and film, it's often said that comedy is a heck of a lot harder to pull off than drama, yet Telltale Games' Tales from the Borderlands pulls off laughs, shocks, and cheers nearly effortlessly.
Tales from the Borderlands is arguably Telltale Games' finest hour and easily one of the very best choice-driven narrative adventures available on any system. This is ten glorious hours' worth of top-notch entertainment with a world-class cast, consistently excellent writing that manages to perfectly balance comedy and drama, non-stop twisted action and a cast of kooky characters that are a joy to spend time with. This really is the best the Borderlands universe has ever been, and a game that everyone should experience at least once.
The story is excellent, characters are intriguing, and the game looks better than I'm used to seeing from Telltale Games.
It's tough for an outsider to look at the praise Tales from the Borderlands is receiving without thinking it's a bit hyperbolic and overblown. Rest assured, Telltale's best game shows us exactly what it means for a game to be fun, as its wonderful writing seems to play on just about every emotion you have. If you thought that this studio would never top the first season of The Walking Dead, you're sorely mistaken, as the title the world thought would be mediocre highlighted the shear wealth of talent over at Telltale.
In the words of Vasquez, 'cool moves' Telltale. Now, to completely knock everyone side ways, repeat this feat with Minecraft.
A great cast and some hilarious writing make Tales from the Borderlands one of Telltale's best titles yet.
[SPOILERS] This is, without a doubt, the finest series Telltale Games have produced to date. Whether you're already a Borderlands fan or not, Tales From The Borderlands delivers an emotional, entertaining, and downright fun episodic adventure title.
Tales from the Borderlands can easily compete against the hottest contenders on TV, not just on account of its writing, but also its cinematic beauty
A sensational story in the absurd world of borderlands. And it will amuse, and it will touch – but above all it will amuse. For fans, the position is mandatory, although new to the series should not feel lost.
