Still on the fence? Here's what some folks in the press had to say about Episode 1: Zer0 Sum...
GameSpot - 9/10 - "an adrenaline-fueled circus of frantic smooth-talk and constant motion that is definitively Borderlands from top to bottom"
Destructoid - 9/10 - "Telltale really knocked it out of the park with this one. Tales from the Borderlands: Zer0 Sum is excellent"
Entertainment Weekly - "another excellent and surprising entry in Telltale's brand of storytelling... Whether in the decision-making, the twists on expected narrative conventions, or just in how well the game captures both Gearbox and Telltale at their best, 'Zer0 Sum' is a tremendous start."
GamesBeat - 96/100 - "Tales from the Borderlands' first episode is a fantastic introduction to what is sure to be an amazing franchise... If you are a fan of Borderlands, you will love it. If you are a fan of Telltale Games' previous franchises, you will love it. If you have a pulse and aren't easily offended, you will love it."
IGN - "You don't need to be a hardcore Borderlands fan to love Tales From the Borderlands... Telltale has created a fantastic opening to a story rife with humor, interesting characters, powerful decisions, and effective mysteries. In the span of Episode 1: Zer0 Sum's two and a half hours, Rhys and Fiona became some of the best lead characters Telltale has ever created, and I’m entirely on board for their journey."
Polygon - "Telltale has a confident take on the source material that leads to one of its best episodes yet... It's an enjoyable, violent and well-crafted introduction to the series. Episode 2 can't come soon enough."
Badass Digest - "It's a Coenesque romp of crime, incompetence and catastrophe that drags its characters through a variety of environments and past a host of colourful characters... 'Zer0 Sum' is a refreshing return to comedy from the studio, and it paves an exciting path ahead for future episodes"
Kotaku - "I was grinning pretty much the entire time... trust me, you'll laugh"
