Tales From The Borderlands: Episode Two - Atlas Mugged
Top Critic Average
Tales from the Borderlands – Episode Two: Atlas Mugged continues where the first episode left off, with a return of the fantastic humour and intriguing story line. There is a focus on conversation between characters over action, meaning that there is little plot progression, but the use of humour combined with an investment in the characters makes playing the game worthwhile.
All in all, Tales from the Borderlands is a story-based point-and-click adventure that continues to deliver thanks to interesting characters and a solid story that features excellent balance between seriousness and levity. If you like the storytelling style of the Borderlands series of games, Atlas Mugged continues to be a hoot.
Overall Tales from the Borderlands Episode 2: Atlas Mugged is a very good followup to the first episode. If you haven't gotten the season pass yet, certainly consider getting the second episode.
'Atlas Mugged' is a strong episode for 'Tales from the Borderlands', if not a standout one quite yet. The series is still absolutely worth the cheap entry price.
Despite the game's ease, Tales from the Borderlands Episode Two continues its strong narrative with improved gameplay.
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
This second episode feels a little slower (curse of episode two!) but even taken as a standalone it's superb. The storytelling and development are top notch, and if the low point is this good, it shows some much promise for the future.
While this episode may feel a little like filler in the grand scheme of things to come, the robot-laced ending is still likely to have you chomping at the bit for more.
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.
Atlas Mugged delivers a solid opening and a few chuckles, but I would've liked more meaningful choices and character development
