Borderlands: The Handsome Collection
The Handsome Collection wraps up six years-worth of great Borderlands content and puts a nice bow on it.
Some unfortunate technical problems distract from what is otherwise a very generous compilation, and an entirely legitimate alternative to Destiny.
Given that I awarded Borderlands 2 4.5 stars and Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel 3.5 stars, the score below shouldn't be a surprise, but both games are worth playing through once more in The Handsome Collection, especially if you have three friends (and the extra controllers) to experience four-player couch co-op.
Two great shooters for the price of one.
Providing gamers with two very fun and lengthy games within Borderlands: The Handsome Collection, there is no doubt that this is the ultimate Borderlands experience for everyone.
If you're new to the series or looking to jump in, you could well be playing this until Gearbox release Borderlands 3.
Borderlands: The Handsome Collection is the victory lap that every Borderlands fan will enjoy, and packs a tremendous value into one disc. Some performance issues hold it back from being flawless, but all the ingredients are here to sate your chaotic sweettooth.
'Borderlands: The Handsome Collection' packages the best and worst entry of the franchise together, making it a difficult proposition for casual fans.
Borderlands: The Handsome Collection is a great game, plain and simple. Those new to the franchise will get to play two awesome games and all the associated DLC for one hell of a price, while veterans of the series should be able to find reason to visit the franchise again. Be it to experience the games in HD, play 4-player couch co-op with friends, or catch up on DLC they didn't pay for the first time around, there are a lot of reasons to come back.
Oodles of content, some of the most fun you'll have in a modern shooter with or without friends and a wicked sense of humour make Borderlands: The Handsome Collection fantastic value.
