Borderlands: The Handsome Collection Review Summary

StrongCritic Consensus

Borderlands: The Handsome Collection does what it says on the tin. It collects the two games, and all their DLC, from the Handsome Jack arc in the franchise and updates their graphics and performance for the new generation of consoles. However, some critics note there are some issues, especially with The Pre-Sequel.

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.
