Borderlands 3 is the battery-acid fueled, over the top explosive experience we had hoped it would be. It hits almost every mark of what we want out of a sequel with an exemplary new cast, returning favorites from across the series, and staying true to the franchise at its core. This is still a title full of psychopaths trying to murder anything that moves with bazillions of guns, but after the first few hours, you can see how the series has grown.
Perhaps the best way to describe Borderlands 3 is to say it is exactly the game you would expect it to be. There are plenty of familiar faces, and it has the same sort of ambiance and atmosphere. People will still keep going into quest after quest for the same reasons (loot). While it might be difficult to accept the new villains after a great one like Handsome Jack, the twins are fine. Most importantly, the new Vault Hunters work well and the game is as fun to play alone as it is with friends.
Borderlands 3 has everything that I think most players are looking for: great gameplay with high-replayability and a solid story. I have my personal gripes with the direction Gearbox took the narrative, but it isn’t objectively bad. I don’t know where the story is going to go from here and knowing that there will be future entries in the series I’m looking forward to seeing where they go. There is so much content here and many ways to complete all of it. I can’t wait to try new characters, play in new modes, and eventually go through the upcoming DLC.
