Tales From The Borderlands: Episode Two - Atlas Mugged
There is no question episode three has some big shoes to fill as "Tales From the Borderlands: Episode 2 – Atlas Mugged" continues Telltale's successful string of story driven adventures. This adaptation of Borderlands has been quite an adventure so far and I cannot wait to see where the story is going to take me from here. For now, I'm going to sit back and eagerly await the next instalment.
Another good entry in the adventure game genre. Just don't go expecting a game changer.
With the surprise of the debut now a distant memory, Tales from the Borderlands: Episode 2 – Atlas Mugged needed to be something special to beat expectations all over again – but despite the delay, it doesn't really hit the same highs as the opener. This instalment feels like it's treading water, waiting for future outings to move things forwards. The humour and characters carry things a bit, but Episode 3 will need to be much better.
With Atlas Mugged, Telltale Games has continued its colourful and incredibly memorable Tales from the Borderlands series with another impressive interactive outing.
The first episode of Tales from the Borderlands was excellent, and while the second episode continues to be enjoyable, it's not quite as good as the debut. Still, there's some really good comedic moments in here, and the plot starts to feel like it's going somewhere, with that split narrative once again being put to good use. If you're a fan of Borderlands, you should be invested in this series, yet even if you aren't, the characters and quirky world will do enough to draw you in.
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're a fan of the Borderlands series, you simply must experience this game series!
A disappointing second episode that's 90 per cent filler and, apart from a good turn by a ghostly Handsome Jack, severely lacking in humour.
The short version is this: Tales from the Borderlands' second episode is just as good as the first, and considering I'm not eager to pile on the praise for an episodic series that still has a long way to go, that's really saying something.
This episode held my attention much better than the previous one, because of better action sequences and more of getting on with the story. I hope Telltale makes me feel more emotionally invested, though.
