Bigger & Better

Borderlands 3 is a no-brainer for those who already own the game to experience what the PlayStation 5 is capable of.

Borderlands 3 on next-gen systems, and the PS5 in particular-thanks to the immersive use of DualSense features such as adaptive triggers-is the definitive way to play the third mainline Borderlands game either in a full crisp 4K or in a game-changing 120 frames per second.

A gargantuan amount of content and great gameplay (improved thanks to the new consoles capabilities) makes this the best version possible of a legendary game. The name is no lie: this is the ultimate edition of Borderlands 3.

Finally realising its potential, Borderlands 3 goes from great to essential on PlayStation 5, thanks to its new visual features, DualSense implementation and the ability to have up to four players blasting their way through the game locally. If you've been holding off playing Borderlands 3 until now, your watch has ended.

Borderlands 3 is a fun game, and I think it nails the combat better than the other games in the series. Unfortunately, the fun combat couldn't distract from the game's constantly annoying humor and bland co-op action.

Borderlands 3 may not have been the big innovation. But it's still a damn good game that is fun for more. And Gearbox has already promised that the supply of new content will be just as good as part 2. A promise that they already healed with the first DLC and smaller events. Say, part 3 will also be fun in the long run!

In the meantime, no other title of the genre has really tried, or has simply failed in setting and achieving the goals that every Borderlands title has from the beginning.

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.
