Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands Review – Spells Like Teen Spirit
Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands isn’t the first time that first-person shooter franchise Borderlands has delved into a realm of high fantasy–developer Gearbox Software initially explored this genre in the Borderlands 2 DLC-turned-spin-off Tiny Tina’s Assault on Dragon Keep back in 2013. Almost a decade later, Gearbox is venturing back into the tabletop board game of Bunkers & Badasses for a self-contained tale of swords, sorcery, and the power of stories. While it has inherited a number of the more annoying Borderlands quirks, Wonderlands is still a comfortably familiar experience that wears its passion for tabletop gaming on its sleeve.
As a standalone Borderlands spin-off, Wonderlands doesn’t require knowledge of previous Borderlands games to jump into. Instead of focusing on a story about Vault Hunters pursuing alien ruins that house artifacts of incredible power, Wonderlands shifts the focus to recurring side-character Tiny Tina and her latest tabletop gaming session. All of this takes place in a game that closely follows the Borderlands loot-and-shoot gameplay formula–constantly collecting new weapons, growing your character’s unique skills, and facing hordes of enemies–and features running commentary from Tina, Valentine, and Frette.
Tiny Tina is once again calling the shots as the Bunker Master, and alongside the characters of Valentine and Frette–voiced by Andy Samberg and Wanda Sykes–it’s up to you to become the Fatemaker who is destined to save the land from the menace of the evil Dragonlord.Continue Reading at GameSpot
