Technology Tell writes, "First of all, Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel‘s story is fantastic. I will admit, I had my doubts going into it. Did I really want to play through a story about a bunch of psychopaths helping a bigger psychopath into power? Did I want to experience Jack as a “good guy,” a “hero” who fell from grace? It didn’t seem like it would be any fun, but I should have had more faith in the author. Anthony Burch, the writer behind Borderlands 2, not to mention the web series Hey Ash, Whatcha Playin’?, handles events with a deft, comedic touch."
