I'm glad there are people enjoying this game, because I am hoping to see future versions of a Borderlands on the newer gaming machines.
The first two installments were rarely about precise gunplay, but after you found the right guns you could take on anything successfully. In this one the gunplay is often a shoot and hope you can hit the target. Enemies jumping around in low gravity don't make for easy targeting. Good luck with a scoped weapon when enemies are hopping and floating in the air. Though they do seem quite capable of hitting you.
Maybe my love of the first 2 games factored into my distaste for this jumping shooter. Heck, at times I thought I was playing a Mario game. Though I did like some of the jumping, it began to occupy too much of the focus at times. Yes, it is a bit innovative and brings new elements into the Borderlands universe, but I would have much preferred playing through new enemies and environments with the same game mechanics of the previous two.
I would love to take these characters into the first 2 games. I'd find that more enjoyable than all the jumping and hopping in this game. At least I picked ClapTrap first, so the oxygen issue was a mote point.Read more ›
In fact, you could be mistaken thinking you ARE playing Borderlands 2, as Borderlands TPS uses the same graphical engine as Borderlands 2. However, there isn't as much of a change of scenery (Your opinion of this will vary, as Borderlands was just a big desert for the most part, and TPS is just the moon save for one section in a moon base).
Borderlands TPS still drops loot. Your "random is random" luck will vary. No real change in drop rates from Borderlands 2. You will still need to do an inordinate amount of grinding through sections and bosses in order to get legendaries. If there's a single most disappointing feature of the game, that would be in the running.
There is an crazy amount of clipping as well, through rocks, walls, etc. that should be solid. The series is showing its age on the PS3.
Low gravity is definitely a hook, and it adds a dimension to combat, but if you're thinking Halo tight, you're thinking wrong. Just as important, you can literally get yourself stuck on an early mission (if you fall to the floor below, you will have absolutely no way to get back up and it's a main story mission, so the only remedy at this stage would be to begin an entire new character).
The sound and music are all still very good, which has been the norm for this series throughout. However, in terms of voice over, I hope you like Australian accents because that's a ton of the game. (Apparently Elpis was colonized by them, who know the outback was to the moon?Read more ›
I wish this was out for the PS4 I'm not sure why they skipped the current generation consoles. I'm of the opinion that next year or the year after you'll see all of the Borderlands games remade for the current console family.
It is a fun game and I plan on playing through it multiple times. To me the thing that makes these games so fun are building out your characters skill trees. I'm playing as Wilhelm and I built down his left tree first and now I'm building down the right tree.
going to move on to Athena the gladiator.
One thing I do enjoy is the new Grinder if the machine inside Concordia (you do need to do a side quest to activate it on your first play through but that it stays active in all your subsequent play throughs) the machine allows you to take equipment and weapons and turn them into better quality loot. You can even take two legendary's weapons throw in a purple weapon of your choice a.k.a. rocket launcher in the machine will give you a legendary rocket launcher. Now the Moonstone's can be used while driving and they guarantee you'll get an upgraded weapon a.k.a. if you put it all greens you'll get a blue weapon out versus you might just get a green one again.
So when it's all said and done to me this is like an epic expansion pack versus more than a full game.
Thanks for reading!
