Exploring new worlds is novel, though it would have been nice to see them differentiated more from Pandora. The story and missions never quite hit the same highs as the previous game, but the core gameplay loop is more than enough to suck you in. Unfortunately, it’s hard to ignore the technical issues, which persist throughout the entire experience and hamper it. Borderlands 3 is a fun, looting experience — just don’t expect a fresh or completely polished adventure.
Borderlands 3 is an excellent example of what a sequel should offer, for better or worse. If nothing else, it makes a compelling case of why many consider Borderlands the ultimate looter shooter. For longtime fans, their dreams have been made into a reality. Newcomers might be less impressed, depending on their tastes, though the mechanics are still objectively quite sound. The largest hurdle lays in the coming months as people start to complete the 20-30 hour-long main questline and eventually get into the endgame.
Borderlands 3 brings all the fun and enthusiasm that the series is famed for while also introducing tighter gunplay and new locations to explore. Disappointingly, it fails to address some issues that have plagued earlier games and there’s very little in the way of innovative, refreshing gameplay.
