So, I’ve never played Borderlands
before. I saw the game for free on the Xbox Live store, knew that a load of my friends loved the game, and thought why the hell not?
Safe to say, I loved
this game. It only took me about an hour and a half to play the first episode through (and hey, I only died once,
; which I think is pretty damn good). This game is addicting, and thoroughly enjoyable.
Honestly, I’m amazed at the quality of the game; now then, I have seen game play of Borderlands
and I was stunned that Telltale managed to have the quality at the same standard as their other games – but still in the same unique Borderlands
The game itself is easy enough to understand, and the two characters you play as (Fiona and Rhys) are fun to play as – and often, Fiona’s sassy remarks left me in stitches. I had to pause the game at one point to go wipe my face of tears.
The first episode of the game is, currently, free on the Xbox Live store and I really suggest you go and download it. The game is a wonderful one, and it even tugged on my heartstrings at one point (and my friends call me heartless due to the content I write!)
It’s well written, funny, and the story is thoroughly enjoyable.
A solid 5/5 for this game, I didn’t even notice the lag – there is one part I noticed where Vaughn is talking, but his lips don’t move, and I think that happens a few times, but really, you don’t notice that much.
For achievement hunters – this is an easy one. An hour and a half play through gets you 200G (20G; 30G; 20G; 20G; 30G; 30G; 50G) over 7 achievements – just playing the game achieves you all seven.
I can’t wait for my next pay check so I can grab the season pass and play through it all.
What are you waiting for? Go and try it.
