Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands – Reviews Roundup & Scores
With scores for Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands being released, here are what some major sites thought of the game:
IGN – 8/10
“Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands is a fantasy-themed Borderlands spin-off that’s hilarious, action-packed, and ridiculous, even if it plays it a bit safe.”
GamesRadar – 4/5
“If you’ve been grinding yourself to the nub on Elden Ring, or just generally dealing with… this [waves hands at everything], then it’s probably just the sort of lighthearted fun you need.”
CGMagazine – 8.5/10
“Overall, the game is very linear but includes plenty of exploration within its boundaries. Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands has an exciting story and great script paired with stellar voice acting. Without that, the game likely wouldn’t have drawn me in as much as it did.”
GameInformer – 9.5/10
“Wonderlands is upbeat and fun from start to finish, offering a rewarding adventure filled with goofy characters, imaginative bosses, and a great sense of ownership over your character through it all. Even with one of Borderlands’ most loved characters leading the charge, this experience feels like the start of something new: a rare spinout from an existing series that deserves just as much of the spotlight.”
GameSpot – 7/10
“As a spin-off, Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands doesn’t reinvent the Borderlands wheel with its shift towards fantasy that bears a chaotic-neutral alignment. Instead, it explores familiar territory that repeats the best and worst of the Borderlands formula and it doesn’t venture out of its comfort zone”
“By not taking its time or its space too seriously, the game leaves the player free to romp, roam, and plunder it likewise. Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands thus breathes new, weird life into a franchise that had become terminally rote, and reminds me why guns-meets-Diablo was the perfect obsession so many years ago.”
DualShockers – 8.5/10
“Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands is a unique concoction of the classic Borderlands formula mixed with a Dungeons & Dragons experience all in one package. The relatively small core voice cast and the charming story will keep you captivated as you take down hordes of enemies with your guns and magic in the very worthy spin-off Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands.”
Digital Trends – 7.8/10
“Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands is a much-welcomed breath of fresh air for the Borderlands series. It takes on a new identity of its own and isn’t afraid to shed past associations to push the series in a new direction — a path I hope it stays on, particularly for a franchise that some believe rehashes the same old themes too many times.”
Hardcore Gamer – 4.5/5
“This game feels like what Blood Dragon was to Far Cry, but not necessarily to that extreme. Tiny Tina keeps everything that makes the Borderlands series great and improves on it to the point that going back to the normal mainline formula may be difficult if Gearbox doesn’t add a huge dynamic to the games going forward.”
