Borderlands 3 Review Roundup – Mayhem and “Meh’em”

preload Borderlands 3 Epic Games Store

Borderlands 3 is dropping this Friday, 13 September 2019 for PS4, Xbox One and the Epic Games Store and while we are yet to receive a review sample due to 2K Games and Gearbox Software having security concerns, media in the US began posting their reviews earlier this afternoon. So instead of sharing our Borderlands 3 review, we can at least share others.

So far, the reception goes from great to mediocre as some media sites describe the latest looter shooter as a tedious and vapid grind.  The 13 critic reviews on OpenCritic are sitting at an 85% average and over on Metacritic, the score is also at 85%. Take a look at some reviews;

IGN – 9.0/10

Borderlands 3 sticks to its guns and outdoes itself with an amazing arsenal of weapons, humor, and missions. – Read the full review

PC Gamer – 63/100

An endless font of bad jokes and cool guns in the series’ most vapid story yet, Borderlands 3 skates by on watching numbers fly and goons explode. – Read the full review

Game Informer – 8.0/10

An old formula executed well, Borderlands 3 rarely takes chances or strays from expectation – Read the full review

GameSpot – 8.0/10

Borderlands 3 fumbles with its bosses, but the game ultimately continues its predecessors’ tradition of fun, mayhem-filled looting and shooting. – Read the full review

USgamer – 4/5

Despite the formula growing a bit stale, Gearbox has expanded upon it in the right way, resulting in a great Borderlands experience.Read the full review 

Polygon – Unscored

Borderlands 3, if it works well at launch, is a competent game that feels like a passable continuation of the franchise instead of an evolution. It’s the same general idea with new vault hunters, but with little of the joy and danger that I fell in love with in earlier entries. – Read the full review

Destructoid – 9.0/10

Borderlands 3 takes most of the good bits of Borderlands 2 and either rolls with them or improves upon them. It didn’t need to reinvent the wheel either, as Gearbox pretty much had the formula figured out the second time around. – Read the full review
