And there’s an overwhelming approval for this Telltale Games adventure.
Tales from the Borderlands: Episode 1 – Zer0 Sum is now available for PS3, PS4, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PC. It comes from the minds of Telltale Games – which handled development – and Gearbox Software – which created the Borderlands universe. Reviews for the first episode have also gone live and they’re very positive.
Though sites like IGN and Giant Bomb are yet to weigh in with their opinions, Destructoid gave the point-and-click sci-fi adventure a 9 out of 10. GameSpot also bestowed a 9 out of 10 with infamous ranter Jim Sterling of the Jimquisition awarding an 8.5 out of 10. Polygon scored it an 8.5 out of 10 while the GamesBeat scored it an overwhelming 9.6 out of 10.
The consensus currently seems to be that the game’s sharp wit, great characterization and strong mechanics are reason enough to pick it up. There’s way more to it than that of course but if you’re a Borderlands fan and want to know what happens after the second game, it’s worth checking out.
