First Thoughts:

My First Thoughts Where Amazing this game is everything any fan of either telltale games or The Borderlands Series could ask for this game has everything Humor , Action , INTENSE STORY , Great Characters , Great Voice Acting and I’m going to point out the best things in this review

The Story:

*Warning this section of the review contains Spoilers so if you don’t want to find out what happens; Skip this section*

So Episode 1 Starts off with you being dragged along the ground in Pandora and you are telling your story so already the game has you gripped to the story because you want to know why is this happening to Rhys (The Character you play) So Rhys Tells his story (I’m not going to tell any of his story for the fact I don’t want to spoil the amazing story) you then meet up with the other character you play Fiona She tells her story and her side to it but that’s all I’m going to say because I don’t want to say to much as I don’t want to ruin it in anyway.

The Gameplay:

The gameplay plays a lot like other telltale games which is a great thing because telltale games are GREAT FUN. You dont need to use to many controls and it is very easy to get the hang of You choose what you want to say by clicking the text you move around with the directional controls (Depending on what you play on) The gameplay is fantastic and is a highlight to all telltale games.


The Graphics:

The Graphics look like Borderlands So that’s a great thing seeing Borderlands graphics are awesome and different a lot of people would describe it as a graphic novel kind of look but anyway you describe it the graphics are amazing in every way.

The Sound:

The Sound to this game is awesome from the effects of movement to the amazing voice acting for EVERY CHARACTER FEATURED IN THIS EPISODE! there isn’t any issues with the sound to the game and it is great.

Lasting Appeal:

You can choose so many different options which will alter the game in so many ways so that’s definitely worth checking out.


Final Thoughts:

Overall this Episode took me 2 hours to 2 hours and 15 mins to finish and that in my opinion is amazing and you can go through the episode again and make different choices so my final thoughts to this episode is ITS AMAZING AND I CANT WAIT UNTIL EPISODE 2!!!

My Score = 10/10


The Good:

  • Amazing Gameplay
  • Great Voice Acting
  • So Much to do on The Story
  • So Many Different Choices
  • Episode Lasted 2 Hours That’s Great
  • A Lot of Fun

The Bad:

  • N/A
