Review – Borderlands 3
You may remember they released an incense burner in the shape of one of the bad guys from Borderlands 3 called The Rampager… if you missed that listen back to our July edition for a roundup of the worst gaming merchandise of all time!
So is the latest Borderlands game any good?
Chris Berrow - Well this is an interesting one so I played this game completely and utterly in co-op with your sister when she was staying. We played for about 3 hours and we loved it. It was interesting to get her opinion on it as well. Basically I think personally it's better than Borderlands 1 and 2. It's very funny.
Leigh Milner - I remember it now. Yeah can really I really want to play this.
Chris - The gunplay is very good as well. The co-op mode is superbly done. If you want local couch co-op get this game. Honestly it gets the humor right like the Telltale version of Borderlands that you can play on your phone which I really recommend as well. That's very story driven. This is just as funny as that. The only complaint that we had in about three hours was that when you first get in a car and drive around it's not great to control... but apart from that the actual first person shooter element of it is really excellent, the guns are a lot of fun to use. I was playing as a character who could summon basically a massive "skag" as it's called which looked like a huge fat Bailey the rabbit. We called it dogdo. So we played with doggo and it was so much fun.
Leigh - Honestly what would you give out a 10?
Chris - Well I was really going to give it 7 but I would say actually I'm going to give it an 8 out of 10 because just thinking about it now it's got a lot of great gameplay in it. It's not an essential purchase this month because there's so many games to get hold of which we'll come on to, but a lot of fun to be had there. Borderlands 3 is out now on PlayStation 4 Xbox One and Microsoft Windows.
