Hilarious and fun to play.

Absolutely phenomenal story and voice acting the humor and emotional moments are point on and nailed perfectly. Arguably one of the greatest stories in video game history that puts Borderlands 3 to shame.

Be my Witnesses! The latest Work from the renowned Adventurestudion Telltale has successfully demonstrated that it is possible to creatively expand an established Francise and make it more than it originally was. You can find out why "Tales From The Borderlands" has a legitimate Claim to the Title "Game of the Year" within this Review. Story This Game differs from the others of the Studio simply because this Time we get not one but two playable Protagonists. Each of these Characters is completely different and has different Motivations. Nevertheless, it is great to weave them in so well that the Player has no Identification Problems. On the Contrary, I felt even better carried away by the two Characters than by the Single, the other Telltale Games. As usual, the first Episode serves the introduction of most Characters and therefore gives them plenty of Space. This Place cannot be used for the Story, which makes the first Episode the worst again. The small Group we follow throughout the Period of Events really grew to my Heart. All the more serious are the Decisions I make either for or against the Favor of our Group. In addition, "Tales From The Borderlands" can be counted among one of the best Sci-fi sagas that exists. It is of the same Importance to me as "Firefly." Gameplay About gameplay can't be said more than about the other Telltale Games. Cut down To the Bare Minimum, it corresponds to an interactive Film, on whose Plot I have a conditional influence. Atmosphere Given that I mentioned above what a Value "Tales From The Borderlands" takes for me, it would be assumed I was a huge Borderlands fan. That is not the case. I count myself among the greatest "Borderlands" Critics who have ever openly left themselves out against this Francise. Why "Borderlands" Never worked for me is due to the Gameplay. But this is happily not about "Borderlands," but "Tales From The Borderlands." I have laid bare my Reluctance to make it clear that even I, who is not blinded by fan service, is roped in by this Game. The Humour works better than in the Original Games and does not get the Tension bad by any means. Often I wasn't sure whether to laugh or fever with me. But this Consideration was completely void, because the Game manages to lead me emotionally in such a way that I feel both at the same time. An unprecedented Experience for me. Conclusion If you like Movies or Games that are good, there's no Way past "Tales From The Borderlands." I reject any Objectivity with this Statement. Broken Down, this Adventure differs only because of the schizophrenic Nature of the Narrative. Yet the Humour and Tension go so well along that it makes me stubborn. 10/10-Tales From The Borderlands makes Saints Row 4 contention the Title of The Game's definition of Awesome.

And with great game I mean a game that is cool not a fat game. I have played it through once and therefore do not have the great idea of ​​how much interactivity really is but as a game you play once it is too wild. Literally a day when I haven't done anything other than playing.

I loved the tellte saga of The Walking Dead, but this really is a masterpiece. Captivating characters and dialogues, very steampunk, beautiful soundtracks. It's almost like shooting a film by the Cohen brothers: don't think about it and take it. The only drawback in my opinion is the difficulty, a simple p would say.

The story is really beautiful and exciting to the end. The graphics are also very pretty, in my experience (2 complete Durchgnge), the decisions have no great impact on the story itself. Of course there are a few other dialogues, but no matter which way you choose, there is usually the same sequence as the other ways. That's why a star deduction. All in all a nice game, but unfortunately not much multiplayer (except one would like to go through the same story again)

If in the other titles produced by TellTale there was not much room for Joss Whedon humor here and we find so much. Tales from The Borderland takes us on a journey across the border. We will find ourselves shooting, running, driving, crying and laughing ... and often all at once. Behind all this frenzy we will be accompanied by a beautiful story where nothing ever seems to be. All you have to do is wear your headphones and dive in! This title together with The Wolf Among Us (absolute masterpiece) are the two creations of TellTale that I love the most !! A must!

The graphics are beautiful, it's borderland. Unfortunately the "game" is essentially composed of dialogues, we play little in the end. We must sometimes react to dialogues and if we are not perfectly English-speaking, it's really too fast (I'm fluent in English but apparently not enough for this game). We can not pass the dialogs when we finish reading the subtitles, so we spend time standing in front of the screen without interruptions. And what really I reproach the game is that there is a bug, which sometimes prevents us to leave the mode "vision", and that requires us to retype the entire sequence, dialogues, actions etc. In 15 'I already had to kill the game and to restart it. To review
What can I say about the last good game created by Telltale? When I sat down to her, I did not believe it would work. Insane world of Borderlands and adventure game? No way, that's what I kept telling everyone. And you know what? They did it. They made, probably the best game in their history.
