Customer Reviews

Better than the other Borderlands

Absolutely love this game. It would be nice to have a pack added to the in app purchase where it spices up some areas on the map and the characters with nudity, but also be able to set a setting in the settings to show how much intensity of nudity or sexual content, also to be able to change up how much you want your character to wear & what to wear. This is one of the things that make games better in some ways (depending on the person). Other than that, ive had a couple crashes or my game froze, but not so much. It’d be nice if there were some futuristic weapons added in the game, cause im getting pretty tired of the same old ones even though ive bought all the in app purchased packs.

I thought the DLC was in-app purchased

But when I started the game it didn’t show any of the DLC that was said to have in-app, instead I have the standard game with just the four Vault Hunters and the main campaign. Now the game is working very well in my MacPro but I’m a little confused as to why the DLC is not included. If this is a problem then please tell what I have to do to get the full package of the game AND NOT JUST THE STANDARD GAME. Then maybe I’ll rate this a bit hire and enjoy the game a lot more. Thank you.

Edit: Okay I found the problem, but it tells me that I have to pucrchase the DLC in-app, as in it wasn’t what I was thinking and now I feel like and idiot.

The launch bug

I am seriously starting to think they dont know how to fix the launch bug ad i llove this game so id like to be able to play it again
