Everything about Borderlands 3's map is a headache inducing nightmare, from navigation, to fast travel, to the minimap, none of it seems to work.
I agree the game isn't perfect, but this seems awfully picky in my opinion. I haven't found any of the issues this article raises to have affected my enjoyment of the game at all.
Exactly! The stupid journalist love to stir shit up.
Using the term "journalist" very loosely.
This map is actually pretty intuitive not sure why he’s complaining
I have not heard many good things about this game. Map - terrible, frame rate - terrible, local coop - nearly unplayable, SJW censoring - terrible. Not sounding good for this game.
I have to say it does take a dip on consoles sometimes, but boy is the local co-op laggy as all heck! I mean, it's.... doable, but it's very badly doable. However, it hasn't stopped me from enjoying the game for what it is. :)
Sometimes you have to try it for yourself. I’m loving the game. The menus are a little slow but nothing compared to my PS4s interface.
Love my PS4, but the UI and OS are god awful compared to Xbox.
This game runs smooth and buttery on the One X so you won't get a bad experience there.
Map is perfectly fine. You either get bland areas with no verticality or you get that and a map that doesn't help as much when overlapping areas occur. Frame rate is only an issue in local co-op. Changing midgets to tinks is far from sjw denoting and so minor considering the plethora of new enemies in the game. Later on the short guys are mostly nogs who are annoying little things who decide it's a good idea to shield heavies and badasses. I'd try the game before so readilly spreading opinion based material further.
*Boy, Borderlands 3 sure is terrible Fixed it for you
*According to you who hasn't actually played it. Fixed it for you
But it's not.
Why are people ripping apart this game so much? I haven’t had anything negative to say about it and I’m loving it. It’s running smooth for me, I thought the maps were fine. The game is so much fun and has so much content, I really don’t understand the hate.
Because of the epic exclusivity thing, that randy dude, the sketchy reviews, and there are quite a number of technical issues with the game on all platforms. Alot of ppl especially are fed up with video games releasing as a broken mess. The game itself is solid, has alot of content, and im enjoying it myself yes, but theres a ton of sketchy and stupid stuff going on with the games devs and publisher. Also the odd price increase of an edition of the game.
Mostly because the boss is a jackass and on PC it's not on Steam so it's obviously the worst game ever (that will change entirely once they release it on Steam, though). The other stuff is very few affecting and not even close to game breaking.
Could be better. Like when youre trying to get to a location in the map, you should have a line guiding you like in gta. Always have to check the full map to see which turns to take and such. And the fast travel menu could be more simple and just have all locations in a single page, categorized by each planet.
Maps can be a little convoluted at times because of the levels within them but its not at all "terrible".
Yeah I had a mission which was below me in some tunnels and it was a pain to rotate it enough to see where the ramps that lead down were
I actually thought the map was pretty easy and intuitive, having that visual depth to see elevation is a big help. I also really like how you get around now with the teleporting from menu. I've put some serious time in and it seems like people are dying to rip this game apart for anything, are people mega whiny or sensitive or something? So weird.
I'm loving Bl3 but i agree. The map is terrible. The inability to see more than one quest at a time on mini map and full map is Just stupid
How many games show you objectives for several quests at a time? I can't think of any games off the top of my head. I'm sure there are some, but most only show the active quest.
Lots of RPGs do, but that's because there are so many.
The pc performance is awful as is split screen on consoles. These are more pressing issues to be complaining about. I’m amazed there isn’t any articles about this.
The map can be very annoying to manage. Once you figure it out its not so bad, but at the start its like "How do i find where my objective is.....?"
It was the same with Borderlands 2 and it was really annoying. The obvious solution to levels without defined "floors" would be to have a map like the latest Doom where you can rotate the map and see if something is above or below you, I was hoping B3 would have solved this problem but from the gameplay I have seen it just looks like they just kept B2's mapping system.
