With new weapons, visual upgrades, all 4 add-on packs and more, play solo or in 4-player split screen co-op!
4K HDR Visuals update surprising impressive
Combat and mechanics loop is tight
Gun & loot mechanics fun
Good visual feedback for quests despite the repetitive nature of many of them
Funny characters, dialogue, world and lore.
RPG Elements and abilities add depth to the gameplay especially if combined with like-minded coop buddies.
Very visual screen tearing ps4 pro for me at least.
Could use more voice acting in places and is easy to accidentally skip from just entering a room.
Not too much variety in quest activities mitigated by pacing, fast travel and a strong gameplay loop.
Re-use of areas without fast travel and loot-full can break some of the games consistent flow.
Collision system can get you killed and is criminal at times
9.5 out of 10 A fun funny frolic with a unique blend of dynamic loot and shoot rpg FPS action & unique style combined with the ability to team play. Likely the game that started the class-based shooter rpg hybrid coop game as we know it!
