A story-focused game set in the Borderlands universe sounded like a recipe for disaster. Loud, obnoxious characters spouting random nonsense for the randomness of it? No thanks. But luckily, most of the universe is just a backdrop for the original story.
There are some refreshingly great characters. But the biggest pro of this game is how it keeps you on your toes. The game manages to throw something unexpected at you quite often. This results in an interesting experience, since you rarely see the next direction of the story coming.
There are of course the standard modern Telltale issues with this game. The biggest of these issues being the claim that your choices matter. But this merely results in one or two altered lines of dialogue directly, of a bit later in the story.
In the end, I'd say this game is on par with The Wolf Among Us, but below The Walking Dead: Season 1. It outshines the rest of the uninspired story-driven games Telltale now ♥♥♥♥♥ out now on a regular basis.
