In the original FreeGameTips Reviews, we rated Battleborn a 7.5 out of 10 and listed it as a remarkable mix between what it offered and Borderlands and what had also been years dedicated to an inexhaustible community, League of Lefends. “Battleborn is a game with a unique playable proposal, and it is precisely that attempt to find something different that this time has played tricks on him. It offers a very interesting potential, its playability shines in many aspects, such as its Raid Mode or the confrontations of its campaign, but it can be somewhat monotonous in other occasions ”.
