Borderlands 3 Review Summary

StrongCritic Consensus

Bigger & Better

Borderlands 3 builds on the set formula by ramping everything up to eleven.

Even More Loot

One of the original looter shooters brings even more quirky and explosive guns to the table.

Playing Safe

Borderlands 3 plays it very safe, never straying too far from the set formula that's over ten years old now.

Borderlands 3 was built for fans of the series and even though it doesn't take any unnecessary risks with its formula, it still manages to excite and thrill players from start to finish.

Borderlands 3 is a fan-servicing treat of a Borderlands game, albeit one somewhat soured by technical issues and lacklustre villains.

A surprisingly unadventurous sequel, given the long years fans have been waiting for it, but the entertaining weaponry just about makes up for the overfamiliarity and obnoxious sense of humour.

Read full review

Borderlands 3 is a love letter to its fans and a celebration of the style of play it first popularized. Filled with characters from previous installments, and unapologetic in its silly humor and bombastic action, it’s an amusing ride that seems hesitant to innovate.

Borderlands 3 fumbles with its bosses, but the game ultimately continues its predecessors' tradition of fun, mayhem-filled looting and shooting.
