Top Critic Average
The extremely stupid humor, top-notch combat and wide range of weaponry make Borderlands 3 one of the best shooters of all-time. Although it's an old formula, Borderlands 3 offers one of the best shlooter experiences you can get.
Although Borderlands 3 doesn't have anything new to offer, it's the best looter shooter title we've seen in years. Its simple but enjoyable gameplay and lovable characters and story can easily keep you playing for many hours.

Borderlands 3 is the return of the king of loot shooters, with enough familiarity there for fans. The gameplay is the best it has ever been in the series, so get ready to blast some bandits. There’s just a few things keeping it from being a truly remarkable game.
Borderlands 3 is an OK game. The shooting and the looting is mostly good with just a few niggles here and there. It could have been a good game, possibly even a great game, but is held back by a truly abysmal story.
Borderlands 3 has all the good things we loved in its predecessors and upgrades them a little. On the other hand it still has all the problems of Borderlands 2 and a few new ones. It’s fun to play, it has great feeling and it still is the best loot & shoot game on the market. However it also has some game design problems and more than a few technical difficulties that spoil gameplay and just shouldn’t be part of modern AAA titles. That being said it’s still a must for every fan of the series and every gamer who wants to became badass crimson raider traveling impossible galaxy full of insane creatures.

Borderlands 3 makes some smart improvements over its foundations. A vast variety of weapons, tighter controls, fast-travel and other quality of life improvements make it the definitive installment.
Is there anything more pernicious in modern cultural criticism than the concept of a guilty pleasure?
...since the enemies grow stronger as I grow stronger, these miniscule increases in stats only keep me afloat, and never add anything interesting to how I approach enemies.
Ultimately Borderlands 3 is a mixed bag. It’s like going to visit my family at Christmas; you jump in the car, visiting those same people that you love dearly and enjoy seeing but it’s still the same long journey and your Dad is telling the same old jokes that make your skin crawl.
