    Borderlands 3 Review - Bombastic Badasses Blowing up Bandits

    Developed by Gearbox Studios, the highly anticipated next step in the franchise which defined the very notion of looter shooters, Borderlands 3 is finally here and it kicks off with a bang. Right from the start, you'll see familiar faces get bossed around by Claptrap, and marvel at the distinct graphical styling that makes Borderlands so unique. It's a game we've been dying to see for years, but could it possibly live up to the monumental hype we set for it?

    [...]

    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. With new locations to visit, an intriguing plot, loathsome villains, and all of your favorite characters coming back to help save the day - even if many of them are only cameos - it only falters in its simplistic AI which we have grown to know too well. It's not trying to rewrite gaming and be wildly innovative, it just wants to let you shoot stuff with an exploding burger launcher. Seriously. Borderlands 3 is sure to be a contender for GOTY and it can only get better with more content and bombastic badasses.

    Score: 86/100
