About this game

Developer: Telltale Games
Content Rating: Mature


Set on the unforgiving world of Pandora after the events seen in Borderlands 2, this is a story full of Borderlands’ trademark humor. You will play as Rhys, a Hyperion ‘suit’ with dreams of being the next Handsome Jack, and Fiona, a Pandoran con artist looking to score her biggest ever swindle. Thrown together as unwilling partners in an adventure to recover cash they both think is theirs, their journey will take you on a wild ride where gangsters, bandit lords, and Vault Hunters are just some of the obstacles you will encounter.

Even if this were not your favorite genre or the Borderlands setting lacks appeal to your personal taste I would recommend this first episode as an introduction to Telltale titles. This episode unequivocally set a new standard for narrative pacing in a Telltale game and should act as a litmus test for whether outsiders would want to play games from this developer. This may not be the role-playing game some gamers expect from every new title but it is one of the strongest Telltale games to date.

However, it did grab me as a well written piece of game comedy, and those might be even rarer than the dramas, horrors, and mysteries we have seen throughout gaming’s history. Tales from the Borderlands: Episode 1 - Zero Sum is undeniably fun, and I can’t wait to see what further episodes bring. Until them, I AM THE CAPTAIN OF THIS POOP TRAIN! I’M GOING TO FILL YOU UP WITH BEES AND PLAY YOU LIKE A HARMONICA!

Tales from the Borderlands Episode 1: "Zer0 Sum" is everything I'd expected from Telltale's take on this franchise, executed with such skill that it's hard to find anything to complain about. This first episode of a five-episode season never went more than a few minutes without moving the story along or making me laugh. It's an enjoyable, violent and well-crafted introduction to the series. Episode 2 can't come soon enough.
