"personally i really enjoyed it, thought it was an improvement in game play and loadout mechanics in pretty much every way over the previous games. also tons of content to be played... i have 100s of hours into the game. i liked the story just fine, thought it was on par with the previous games. the only people i've seen that didn't like it or were let down are the folks that either have problems with females in video game (not Tomb Raider, which is hilarious to me) or people overly hung up on the "woke" nonsense (then decline to justify it when asked).

that said, if you're interested i'd wait for a version with at least Season Pass 1 in it, the DLCs were fantastic additions, Season Pass 2 isn't worth the extra money to me." - [psyctto]

It's trash. I platinumed all previous ones and this one doesn't even feel like Borderlands. Story and chars are some SJW trash

This game is not Xbox Play Anywhere, and even if it were, this is a deal for the physical version. You would need to buy the digital version to take advantage of that program.

Or maybe the story just sucked. I have 100% on Borderlands 1, 2, PreSequel. Never had an issue with female characters nor "wokeness" (whatever that means). It's miles ahead of any Borderlands game in terms of gameplay but completely missed the mark for the charm the series is known for. To dismiss and project non-issues for why someone might dislike the game like that; is completely moronic. Keep your twitter politics out of this app, please and thank you.
Yeah, I agree with you. Honestly I don't even see how he can say this with a straight face (maybe they're just trolling?). Borderlands 1 and 2 had plenty of well represented females, Lilith in 1 was the best character, and when they started taking the story seriously with 2, she became a total badass character (I never once heard anyone among people who play bl say otherwise) and hell, Borderlands 2 had an entire side quest dedicated to killing an exaggerated stereotype misogynist, one of the top 3 most loved missions I hear people talk about. Maya was really great as well, my main in 2, gaige was awesome. I'd go on, but there's really no need, since this clown is either trolling or hasn't played much of borderlands to begin with.

Or they simply just thoughtlessly regurgitate corporate-owned, anti-consumer gaming "journalist" talking points that take like 5 trolls off of Twitter, and use that as "proof" that people who don't like the game "just don't like women", to try and deflect any valid criticism of the game.

Borderlands 2 was my favorite game of all time, before destiny 2 came out, it was my most played game of all time (and I only played destiny to scratch the borderlands itch), I bought and loved bl1 on launch day as well. Pre sequel was pretty bad in the beginning and had pacing issues with the zero g stuff that slowed the beginning of the game to a crawl, but mid way through started improving a lot, and the claptrap matrix dlc (don't remember the title) was really good.

I pre ordered the 100 dollar digital edition of borderlands 3: I haven't even finished a single playthrough. The story and writing are awful and the jokes are just bad. It's like a poor caricature of the tone of bl2. The game has crashes for me regularly on ps4 pro (worst offender when it crashed at a boss fight that I had to waste time making my way back to just to redo).

As mentioned by other posters, weapons and even sometimes classes are nerfed regularly. I could have powered through the game I even with the terrible story and wokeness (two separate issues by the way, I don't only hate the story because it's woke, I hate it because it is just bad, unfunny and cringeworthy, I mean the main villains are friggin twitch casters ffs), but when they're constantly "balancing" (really this just means nerfing) my favorite weapons and abilities IN A SINGLE PLAYER/CO-OP GAME (no competitive aspect to this, let those who want to mow through enemies easily with their hard earned/grinded weapons enjoy themselves), I just gave up.

I've tried a few times to come back and finish it, since I feel like I need to at least beat it to justify the 100 bucks I spent on it, but I really can't. There's a good game underneath, I really like the combat, the graphics are good, the weapons seem really inventive and ridiculous fun, it's just MASSIVELY hampered by the inexcusably poor story, the constant nerfs which makes weapon hunting pointless, and for me the numerous crashes(I haven't checked if this is widespread or not). If I ever get a ps5, I'll probably force myself to finish it (framerates on ps4 pro are also bad me, even performance mode), but this is a FAR cry from bl2, where I beat the game twice or more with every character (even the dlc ones).

Saying, or implying things like "the people who don't like this are just mostly comprised of people who don't like women in games" is absolutely deceptive and ridiculous. I don't doubt there's a handful of people like that, as there's always going to be people on any side of any issue, but those people make up less than a quarter of a percent of people complaining about bl3. Nobody (and when I say nobody, I mean nobody other than this extremely small portion I just mentioned) are complaining about bl3 being worse for "having women in it" (as I explained above with bl2, this is just such a clear and utter bs excuse), unless your narrow viewpoint believes people who are anti-woke are the same thing as anti-women/diversity (they're not btw).

And also, a lot of people also just didn't like the epic exclusivity deal which kept bl3 from pc gamers who didn't want to install yet another launcher on their system (there was also privacy concerns whether the telemetry systems built into epic were shady and unnecessary, couple that with epic being in business with tencent, they were legitimate concerns)

This game, while not bad, was just a massive disappointment of people's expectations of what a borderlands game should be, expectations built from the amazing Borderlands 2.
The combat is arguably as good as 2 but the story, characters, and most importantly antagonist(s) absolutely do not compare. For 10 bucks if you liked 2 - go for it.

It's hard to live up to 2, but it's still great.

Good game, especially for $10. I enjoyed Borderlands 2 a lot more.

Now if I could just find a decent deal on the PC version, that would be great.

I agree with pretty much everything said here. I didn't care for, nor did I hate, the story in BL3, but I also didn't really pay it much attention.

The game play is fun. The addition of sliding and climbing were great. I enjoyed the DLC campaigns in the first season pass more than the base game.

I bought the base game for $10 and the Season Pass 1 for $25, and easily got my money out of both as a split screen couch co-op player.

For $10 it's definitely worth it, especially if you're new to the series. I find it hard to keep engaging in these looter shooters due to fatigue but they're still great time killers if only for a month.

I know one of these days it is going to be cheap for PC. I will then clear the afterwork, home project list and family calendar for a few months.

Not even worth it at this price. What a crap game. I didn't even bother finishing the main campaign. The story was just so bad. Really, nothing much changed from BL2. Stick with 2 or TPS if you want a fun borderlands experience.

Depends on standards and if you like games as a service model where they nonstop nerf and buff weapons and chars. Spend weeks farming something you want but then nerfed and junk now... So makes collecting fav guns meh why bother... The loot was better by far in 1 and 2. Variations kept getting better legendary versions and each had reasons to alt with. The nonstop server side changes to ruin your fav stuff you so loved its so common. Can play offline but game updates son so by a little time. If you old real bl fan and hated when they nerfed a couple only things in lifespan then loot be blah in 3... The story and chars will make you hate the bl brands future care... Real bl fans most hate this trash for story and everyday gear changed in game so epic gun becomes trash russian roulette.

For 10 worth it but will it will destroy the bl love and excitement for future stuff. Casuals took over standards are so low so all depends on you... buy on pc and mod it f stock.
