Borderlands: The Handsome Collection is the victory lap that every Borderlands fan will enjoy, and packs a tremendous value into one disc. Some performance issues hold it back from being flawless, but all the ingredients are here to sate your chaotic sweettooth.
A great game, plain and simple.
With two mahoosive games and a ton of additional content stuffed into the box, Borderlands: The Handsome Collection is well worth the asking price, what with its sharp, pimped-out visuals and what not. If you've already taken this ride before on Xbox 360, you might want to think twice before parting with more cash for the Xbox One version.
A good 1080p collection with one of the best FPSes from last gen and a decent spin-off, with the welcome addition of a local split-screen co-op mode. Other than that, there aren't other noteworthy additions so it's a recommended buy just for the ones who skipped at least one of the two games on last gen consoles.
Add another [10 Points] to the score if you've never played the two games. [Issue#124, p.80]
The gorgeous HD assets and stonking amount of included DLC are well worth the price of admission, but it's a shame that The Pre-Sequel's performance issues stop this collection from being as handsome as it should be.
Offers a ton of great content for its price tag, alongside gameplay that is infinitely replayable. Despite that though, it's tough to wholeheartedly recommend the package, due to some awful performance issues on Xbox One.
