In all, Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel does feel more like a massive expansion pack than an entirely fresh experience, but the new playable characters are worth exploring and the tweaks to the formula have an impact across the entire breadth of the game. You won’t know what you ever did without huge double-jumps and butt-stomps.

Ultimately, those who just want more Borderlands are getting their wish. The Pre-Sequel offers plenty of missions, completely new environments and playable characters, and one of the more interesting story threads of the series. If you're looking for more from Borderlands, however, The Pre-Sequel falls short, and it will take more than laser blasters and buttstomps to put the series back at the top of my must-play list.

Nothing about this experience is a must-have, if the truth is told - and so we come back to that first question. How much do you like Borderlands 2? Could you go in for some more of that, with minor changes and evolutions to keep it from being entirely samey? If the answer is yes, and you feel like grinding for loot all over again, Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel is for you. If not, perhaps hold fire for the next 'big' Borderlands title.
