Borderlands 3 is the exact follow-up that fans have been waiting for, delivering more of what they’ve come to expect with some surprises along the journey.

Borderlands 3 does technically evolve the franchise, and it is a fun time for those who know what they’re getting into. While most of the quests don’t have the motivation that you’d expect, the core gameplay is incredibly engaging. Every Vault Hunter feels fantastic to control and the world-hopping adventure leads to some gorgeous locales, but it’s not a decidedly better game than what’s come before. It’s one step forward and a juvenile step back to impress its friends. Oh, and there’s a fart at the end just for good measure.

All good things come in threes but not in the case of Borderlands 3. Gearbox manages to cut out a lot of beloved features from previous titles and leaves us with uninspiring open world areas that are only kept alive from the craziness of beloved characters.

Borderlands 3 brings all the fun and enthusiasm that the series is famed for while also introducing tighter gunplay and new locations to explore. Disappointingly, it fails to address some issues that have plagued earlier games and there's very little in the way of innovative, refreshing gameplay.

Borderlands 3 promises a lot of fun gameplay and a good scenario. But the technical problems of the game, destroy the fun.

The game hasn’t taken any wild new directions but rather focused on improving the existing formula. The entire game feels like a warm duvet on a cold day.

I can forgive the game for a lot of its shortcomings, although there’s something about Borderlands 3 that I absolutely cannot forgive – its technical problems.

If you’re a fan of Borderlands, there’s a lot of love in doses here. It’s fulfilling from both a gameplay and fan-service perspective, with tons to see and do for hours on end.

Borderlands 3's stellar gunplay and awesome arsenal heavily contrast its disappointing humor and characters.
