Borderlands 3 Review - IGN

Borderlands 3 sticks to its guns and outdoes itself with an amazing arsenal of weapons, humor, and missions.

Brave_Losers_Unite1745d ago

Hopefully the reviews will be this good. I would hate to see Borderlands do bad.

Sgt_Slaughter1745d ago

Lots of 8's along with some 9's, sound good to me for now

drunkenspy0071745d ago

@Inzo, I've seen one from PC gamer from a reviewer who admitted they're not a fan of the series. Where are these other reviews?

Sgt_Slaughter1745d ago

@drunkenspy that's what I was going to say, I see more 9's than 8's than I did earlier and only one 6 so far, not "quite a few" like the other person said.

People should read the detail of the review prior to writing off any reviewing outlets. It’s obvious that IGN has become a joke in recent years compared to where it used to be, however this particular review by them seems solid.

IGN has a huge Borderlands 3 promotion right now, that might explain their favourable review. It only takes reading some other reviews around to connect the dots.

Steppenwolfmother1744d ago

@UltraNova their score lines up with most others if you check meta critic. IGNs reviewers are purposely kept separate from sales and marketing. I don’t believe at all that IGN gets paid off for reviews, given some of the high profile games they have given low scores, even when doing the same style of promotional advertising. Their boss (Peer Schneider) has a pretty good reputation

UltraNova1743d ago (Edited 1743d ago )

@Steppenwolfmother

IGN hasn't mentioned a single bug or any other kind of issue with the game and as we know there's a lot. They received the same pre-release Epic account code as all initial reviewers out there (many of them giving the game 8+/10) who on the contrary reported on issues with the game. Again connect the dots.

Day one!

I booked my week off for release :)

Fluttershy771745d ago

Hopefully the game is good too

Steppenwolfmother1744d ago

@Lore oh they are a joke when you don’t agree with one of their employee or freelancer opinions but they are ok when you do agree? A review is one persons opinion, either look at meta critic for the average score or find a reviewer/influencer that has similar tastes to you and follow their impressions

criticalkare1745d ago

So far i seen 9s and 8s with few exception

djplonker1745d ago (Edited 1745d ago )

As of me writing this comment n4g has three reviews up

9/10 - ign
8/10 - gamespot
6/10 - pcgamer

And one article calling it "third times a chore"

so unless you can filter metacritic to only show 9's and 10's I have no idea where you are getting only amazing reviews?

MrDead1745d ago

out of the 17 reviews posted on metacritic so far the game has

11 reviews with 9 and above
5 reviews with 8 and above
1 review with 6.3
1 "review" from "Polygon"

I don't know where you look at reviews but as of right now criticalkare is correct.

CP_Company1745d ago

pcgamer review is garbage, so that's that. there is always one whos gonna write the click bait review and that reviewer is known for that.

djplonker1745d ago (Edited 1745d ago )

Edit: doubt post

Relientk771745d ago

Man this weekend can't come soon enough. I can't wait. Shoot and loot baby, shoot and loot!

djplonker1745d ago

I know it's borderlands but after:

aliens colonial marines
Duke nukem forever
Battleborn

I am surprised people still preorder their games, borderlands 2 is the exception not the rule.

djplonker1745d ago (Edited 1745d ago )

Nah I am staying for the denail stage of some the fans who have been waiting 8 years and are unwilling to accept any criticism and will lash out at anyone who talks ill of the game.

I didnt spend 8 years waiting for them to make a worse game than the last and I wouldn't expect them to because they are bad developers who's ceo is a total clown.

wow, nothing better to do huh? better just to be a complete asshat to others then? enjoy your forever POS status.

djplonker1745d ago (Edited 1745d ago )

Nah just funny watching people try and defend a game they haven't played against someone who has and doesn't like it.

If you want to do the psychological version of running head first into a wall over and over I will point out what you are doing makes no sense once but after that I'm not going to stop you and you can't stop me laughing at your idiocy.

Ooh personal attacks because I am defending someone's right to have an opinion on a game they don't like but you do even though you haven't played it.

What's your next move....... Tell your parents on me?

You're not defending anyone kid, you're just being a hater for the sake of being one. Acting like trash ain't nothing new kid.
