Tales From The Borderlands: Episode Two - Atlas Mugged
But all of these are really just minor annoyances. They may have ruined the experience in any other game, but to be honest the story is just so good I would sit through a million bugs to see it through to the end. 2K and Telltale are a narrative dream team that crafts a story unlike anything else you have seen on the market. Even if you haven't picked up Episode 1, even if you've never played Borderlands before, pick up Tales from the Borderlands. You won't regret it.
For people that love the world of Borderlands, and people that appreciate snappy writing and surreal comedy, episode 2 is a definite winner
This is a minor episode, as second episodes in episodic game series often tend to be, but there's nothing here that hints that the rest of the season won't be strong.
Tales from the Borderlands got off to a good start last year, and now that Atlas Mugged is finally here, the series has only gotten better. I hope the wait for Episode 3 won't be quite so long, but however far away it is, I expect it will live up to the anticipation. Atlas Mugged certainly did.
Atlas Mugged looses some of the spark and flair that made the gameplay from Tales From The Borderlands first episode so exciting, but manages to keep the laughs coming
Although not a negative experience, the drop in quality from Episode 1 can't be ignored.
A must-play for Borderlands fans or Telltale fans. If you're a fan of both you have no excuse. Go play it now.
If you want to look at Atlas Mugged by itself, it's nothing special by any means. But let's take a look at it for what it is. This is the second episode. It is a follow up to getting to know a bunch of great characters and the crazy situation they have just landed themselves in. Atlas Mugged is about coping with the events that happened in the first episode and setting up the things to come, all with hilariously written dialogue and excellent voice acting to match it. It is an awesome piece to a whole story that is shaping up to be one of, if not the best, Telltale Games series. Let's just hope it's not the end of June before we get to see the next part.
Silly, but sometimes intense, "Tales from the Borderlands: Episode 2: Atlas Mugged" is another solid addition to the series, even if it doesn't challenge you much.
It's a terrifically smart and fun adventure, and the stakes feel very real, even when we're not exactly sure just what the maguffin is or does. Things are just getting interesting for our characters though, and we can't wait to find out what happens next.
