The story is interesting and very well written. There are some good surprises along the way. I preferred the first 3 chapters the most, but the final 2 were also great. This game is basically the opposite of Telltale's The Walking Dead. With Tales from the Borderlands, you aren't constantly second guessing your decisions because the game is more about being entertaining and less about making hard choices.

As with all Tell Tales games the choices you make really have no impact on the story, but it is still very well written and good.
It's all canon as well so if you've played previous Borderlands games and plan on playing the next you will find similarities as it's meant to fill in some blanks and set the path for future games.

I'm 32, and it's pretty hard to make me laugh. I've grown up watching stand up comedy and my favorite television shows have always been comedies, but I'm pretty jaded. That being said, I laughed my ass off almost throughout the entire game. It is quite likely the funniest script for a game that I've ever witnessed.

Not very at all. There are somber moments but the game pretty much always rebounds with a happy scene after anything depressing happens.

They do a great job of making it feel like you are inhabiting the world of Borderlands, and even though I thought those games to be good but not great, it made me more interested in that universe.

I would recommend this to everyone from hardcore gamers to people who don't play any games. It would be a great introduction for someone who is just getting started.
