“Borderlands 3”: Works Where It Counts, But Doesn’t Add Much Else

There’s a tempering of expectation of sorts when it comes to Gearbox and 2K Games’ Borderlands franchise that you know what you’re getting from the start and for many, that’s enough, but let’s not pretend this title will ever reinvent the wheel when it comes to first-person shooters.
