Borderlands: The Handsome Collection gives you everything you’ll possibly need to survive until Gearbox Software’s next hit “Battleborn” releases.


I first fell in love with the Borderlands series in October 2009 when the first Borderlands game was launched. The game featured an unique take on the RPG genre, and added so much depth to its story, it was impossible not to fall in love with this game. When in September 2012 Borderlands 2 released the game got even bigger and better, more guns, more craziness, more loot, more of everything. Both of these games featured some of the best DLC content on the last generation of consoles, my personal favorites being; Claptrap’s New Robot Revolution, and Tiny Tina’s Assault on Dragon’s keep.


This time around we have a new generation of consoles and Borderlands couldn’t be missed on our precious Playstation 4 or Xbox One, thus Borderlands: The Handsome Collection is released. Borderlands: The Handsome Collection includes; Borderlands2, Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, and all of their downloadable content. With improved graphics and framerate, and the best feature in this collection 4 player couch co-op.

Borderlands has always been a game best played with online or offline friends, Borderlands: The Handsome Collection lets you play offline with up to 4 friends. This is one of the best added features in the collection but also one of the worst, framerate drops to 30fps and textures take their time to load. Borderlands: The Handsome Collection is everything you would want from Borderlands on Current generation, but it doesn’t feel like a current generation game, more like an amazing collection of one of the last generations greatest game.
The core games itself perform way better than on last generation and Borderlands have never looked so good as on the new generation. The game looks more detailed and less blurred, while some textures take their time to load which results in some bad looking graphics, luckily once their loaded the game looks great.


The Handsome Collection tells the tale of Jack and lets you battle Jack in Borderlands 2 as your prime enemy, while in Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel you can see a Jack who is a good person turned bad due to circumstances. The story itself is great and with the added DLC the game is huge, You have enough Characters to choose from, each which features different unique builds. There is a huge amount of time you can spend on Borderlands: The Handsome Collection and every minute you spend on it will be rewarded with a great story, a crazy amount of guns, unique characters, a more than needed dose of humor, and an unforgettable RPG experience.
