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.
** UPDATE **
Well after my initial impression of disappointment I grew to like this game. Once I got higher levels it seems to balance out the difficulty. My biggest issue is Deadlift seems way too difficult no matter what playthrough you are on and that can be very discouraging for new comers to the game. The weapons drops are much worse than the other games and seems way too infrequent. Overall, I do enjoy playing this game now after I forced myself to play it more.
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.
