Borderlands: The Handsome Collection PS4 PlayStation 4

They should make a movie: Not Another PlayStation 4 Remaster. Seriously, though, while Borderlands: The Handsome Collection may not include the first game in the series, it's looking like a pretty comprehensive package. Including both Borderlands 2 and Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, the real thing that should sell this set is the fact that it comes with every piece of DLC released so far. That's a lot of purple loot folks, but what are critics saying about the PS4 compilation?

Attack of the Fanboy - 4.5/5

Borderlands: The Handsome Collection combines one of the best games of the last generation and a worthy sidestep title in the same package. Boasting local four player split screen for the first time in the franchise history, the collection also provides players with every piece of DLC thus far with the smoothest console performance ever in the series. Costing the same or less than the Pre-Sequel and its Season Pass alone, Borderlands: The Handsome Collection is the ultimate option for series veterans and newcomers alike.

Cheat Code Central - 4.5/5

That's really the golden thing about Borderlands: The Handsome Collection. It's just a great package. For newcomers to the franchise, as I said earlier, this is a great jumping on point. For the older fans of series this is not much beyond what you already know, but it is definitely worth a look simply because of the graphic upgrades and the new four player split-screen option. If this is not a reason to get a remastered version, I'm not sure what is. Just in case, though, remember you are getting two great games with an enormous amount of DLC. We're all hungry for more Borderlands, but until a new game comes along, Handsome Jack is happy to provide this quality interlude.

PlayStation Lifestyle - 9/10

The Handsome Collection is an easy recommendation for me to make to most gamers, especially if you haven't had a chance to play through either of the games available on it. Fans who have put in hundreds of hours into each title may find less new content to really keep them busy, but given that everything is in a neat little package, with upgraded visuals and a new four player split screen mode, it still makes this difficult to not recommend to any real fan of the series. While the remastering could have used a bit more work on some minor levels, The Handsome Collection is a fantastic time capsule with enough polish to let players revisit it again and again for years to come without it ever feeling completely dated.

IGN - 8.4/10

Minor quibbles aside, The Handsome Collection is a great package for any console-bound Borderlands fan. The fact that it collects every piece of DLC for both games, the majority of which is of very high quality, plus the fact that you can carry your last-gen saves and characters over, makes it a good pickup for returning fans and a great pickup for new ones.
