The Pre-Sequel isn’t a bad game, but it certainly isn’t a game changer. For a Borderlands fan, The Pre-Sequel is really a no-brainer, but don’t expect anything massively new or innovative outside of the small tweaks. Instead, enjoy a bit (read: a lot) more Borderlands until Gearbox can show us what the series will become on the new generation of consoles.

Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel’s problem isn’t that it’s not fun— it is. If you pick it up you’ll probably have a blast, and will overall look back on it fondly. Its problem is that it’s too content to repeat what previous games have done, for better or for worse. Great loot, three-dimensional combat, and fun player abilities all add up to making Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel really shine when it’s at its best.

Repetition and a lackluster story are its biggest shortcomings, but Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel is different enough to separate itself from the shadows of its older siblings. Elpis provides some gorgeous scenery, and the low-gravity environments bring an exciting new dynamic exploration and combat. No, it never reaches the furthest edges of space, but Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel still offers some the best of what the series has to offer: good loot, good laughs, and good times for many hours.
