Critic Reviews for Borderlands 3: Guns, Love, and Tentacles

Guns, Love, and Tentacles is a solid, but safe, Borderlands 3 expansion with an awesome Lovecraftian aesthetic.

So far Gearbox is two-for-two on the season pass, but only just.

‎Weapons, love and tentacles expands the madness of Borderlands 3 to horror literature with great success, making this participant in its chaos, its shootings and its macabre characters.‎

What begins with a disaster ends with love, sandwiching in a meaty filling of guns, conspiracies and Wendigo testicles along the way in Borderlands 3: Guns, Love and Tentacles. Not a bad way to spend a weekend, when you're officiating the union between beast and melee attack. I now pronounce you man and knife.

The expansion takes place on the Xylourgos planet, a surprising but welcome mix of Lovecraft and nordic cultures. It offers a great deal of action, guns and new creatures, but its gameplay and narration lack uniqueness, letting untapped potential.

Similar to the last expansion, Guns, Love, and Tentacles is a return to form for Borderlands 3. Not only is the story great and handles the return of Gaige quite well, but it also offers a good amount of new things to see. Add in new cosmetics, a bunch of legendary gear and more and it's hard to say no to seeing all that it has to offer.

Mixing Borderlands' witty banter with Lovecraftian horror and a slight hint of seriousness makes for an interesting experiment that pays off in spades.

This is a generally solid expansion to the game, but one they could have taken further as it does seem to just be an alright playthrough.
