The game should start close to where you left off. Dead Space was programmed in a way that save stations let you save your progress and your relative location in the game space associated with that save station. Borderlands the Pre Sequel is designed as if we are all gamers who have no life outside this game. Get Real GearBox yes Borderlands is an awesome franchise and I love it, but I am an adult who works for a living and has a life outside of gaming that must be tended to. Making me cover the same ground in long game story missions without the ability to save my location is just stupid and makes the game play repetitive and boring. I like Borderlands the Pre Sequel even more than Borderlands 2. Borderlands 2 was not funny. Borderlands 1 and Borderlands the Pre Sequel are rib splitting funny. The place where you were supposed to battle a bad guy and the AI kills him. The AI slams a virtical door on him and says opps did you want me to keep the doors open sweetie. I lost it I laughed so hard I had to pause the game and put down the controller. So I am not saying Borderlands the Pre Sequel is not a great game. What I am saying is if you work and don't have endless continuous hours to invest in game play Borderlands the Pre Sequel might be the best game you never have time enough to play!
Hey I figured it out. Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel is NOT glitched in the New Directions \ Kill all the guards at the gate puzzle \ quest. The Kill all the Guards at the Gate objective wants you to do something very very specific and once you do it the game progress continues. Think "The Gate" is the key to solving what looks for the world to be a glitch but it is NOT a glitch. The game wants you to investigate the gate. I can't say more than that without this becoming a true spoiler. The game has a really nice suprise once you figure out the kill the guards at the gate puzzle. Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel does have too many real glitches in it but, its still fun to play. The biggest glitch is the fact you can fall into \ go into areas that won't let you jump out. I call these areas dead zones. You can get in but can't get out. I got cheated out of all my golden keys, the software says they were downloaded but they never appeared in the game. I am taking a star off my rating for Gearbox cheating out out of my 7 golden keys.
Now I want to address a few criticisms I feel are unjustified. Some people say that Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel plays like a big add on to Borderlands 2 and I must totally disagree. The Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel story is fresh and so different from Borderlands 2 that this qualifies as a new game not an extention of Borderlands 2. The young Jack is NOTHING like the arrogant SOB that ruled Borderlands 2. Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel answers so many Borderlands 2 questions thatate at my mind. Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel let you see how Handsome Jack came to be and his rise was handled in an awesome way so far. I also loved how they gave the early history of Pandora under the DAHL Corporation another story arc taken on by Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel. The best part about Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel is Gearbox did things that actually make Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel fun to play. In Borderlands 2 the gun system was a mess. No great guns ever appeared in the Vending Machines anymore. All Vending Machine guns and shields were universally garbage in Borderlands 2. There was never a great gun in a chest or odd location in Borderlands 2 which took away from the fun of looting. In Borderlands 1 you had a chance to find a truly great gun in any location which made you want to check out every part of the game. Borderlands 1 was fun because; every part of the game could reward you for your patience. Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel brings back some of the element of chance finding a great gun or shield in a vending machine. The golden key loot is still better than average but not great. The ginder is a great concept.
Now with that said let me share the best news. The first Borderlands was so funny it often made me laugh out load. Borderlands 2 was so rigid, regimented and locked down that it was often no fun to play. Borderlands 2 had a few bright spots, Tiny Tina and Captain Scarlet & Her Pirates Booty was a TOTAL SUCCESS because they made you LAUGH OUT LOUD. Captain Scarlet and Tiny Tina had the kinds of twisted off the wall but lovable personalities that made me fall in love with Borderlands 1. In Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel it was like I found the LOVE I had for Borderlands 1 all over again. Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel made me laugh out loudd many times like I never did in Borderlands 2. So much of Borderlands 2 was a comedic dessert, I smirked inside sometimes but rarely laughed out loud. Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel at times made me laugh so hard I had to pause the Game! On so many levels Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel feels like a new departure from everything that was not the best with Borderlands 2. Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel made me laugh like I hadn't laughed since Borderlands the original that by itself makes Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel new content rather than old recycled Borderlands 2 fare.
Some people think Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel is not a full "New Game" because it did not embrace the new PS4 and XBox One platforms and that is their strongest point. However in every other way Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel is a brand new game in a brand new environment that has a powerful story about how life on Pandora came to be. If you look hard enough you can see some environments that WERE recycled and redressed from Boderlands 2 but much of Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel is new. I enjoyed the heck out of playing Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel because; the look and feel were more like the first Borderlands and many of the awful Borderlands 2 excesses were eased or erased. I think Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel has the potential to be awesome for those of us who love the PS3 quality look, feel, strong story and game play.
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.
It is possible that I will get back into this game at a later date and enjoy it for what it is, but overall I have found myself unwilling to "jump" into and immerse myself into Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel. Something that never happened with the first 2. If this had been the first game in the series, I am pretty sure that I would never have bought another one.
Update: Upon getting the Handsome Collection, I decided to give the Pre-Sequel another try and have been pleasantly surprised. The first part of the game pretty much fit my earlier assessment, but once a lot of action shifted to inside locations, the original flavor of Borderlands 1 & 2 came storming back. I am going to see if this positive trend continues. If so, I may further increase my rating of this game.
This is a game you want to play with friends, be it couch-side or online, as it adds a much more enjoyable element to the game. The dialogue and references are still witty, sarcastic, and down-right absurd in just the right places. Normally when a secondary studio (no insult to 2K Australia) takes over an IP, it doesn't do very well. However they seemed to nail just about everything with BLTPS, including an appropriately themed and well executed score.
The only problem my friend and I had with the game is that we went through most of the game without finding much loot better than our own. We traded out items and guns maybe 3 or four times at the most. That's a terribly low amount considering the game prides itself on its loot system and variety and weaponry. It was disappointing to go through the game with hardly any upgrades than from those we got back at level 11 (we ended around level 29).
Overall BLTPS was a fun and solid game with great characters, story, and gunplay, but seemingly broken loot system and bug encounters took away a good portion of the enjoyability of the game.
