Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel gives us more of what we love about the Borderlands series. More guns, quest, jokes, Claptrap. We get to play as four brand new vault hunters with unique abilities. For this first impression I played as Athena, or should I just call her Captain America?, and she’s all kinds of badass.
Once I reached level 3 I was able to throw my shield around the room and I couldn’t help, but chuckle because it was so much fun. It’s hard not to make Captain America jokes when I play as her. The tutorial was pretty straight forward. You watch a opening cutscene and jump into the action.
I think Borderlands 2 had the best opening cutscene out of all the Borderlands games. You had an epic song and watched the vault hunters kick Handsome Jack’s ass.
The tutorial stage in Borderlands 2 is also a lot better than what I just got finished playing. I’m not saying that this game is bad though. It’s actually the opposite of it. I’m really enjoying Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel right now, but it’s hard not to compare it to Borderlands 2.
When I finally reached the moon I immediately started looking around for some air because my Athena was suffocating to death, but I actually thought that was kind of awesome. Using my oxygen to ground pound enemies or just jump higher into midair is a lot of fun.
Handsome Jack is a lot younger in this game than he was in Borderlands 2, but that’s to be expected since this is a prequel to that game. He’s funny and his lines are excellent so far. I’m really looking forward to our future encounters later on in the game.
Looting, and killing shit is also a lot of fun. If you’re a hardcore Borderlands player than you’ll feel right at home here. This game is just more of what we already know and love. If you’re tired of Destiny and you’re looking for another shooter to sink your teeth into than give this game a shot and see if you like it.
I’ve only done one quest so far and I literally can’t wait to jump back into this game and spend the next 50 hours of my life completing it. All I need to do now is get a party of four and go around Pandora’s moon killing shit.
