Tales From The Borderlands: Episode Five – The Vault of the Traveler Review | The big finish

At long last, it’s time to put this Tales of the Borderlands review to rest. As always, before we get started, a few bits of house-keeping. You can get up to speed on the previous episodes by reading our reviews for Episode 1: Zer0 Sum, Episode 2: Atlas Shrugged, Episode 3: Catch A Ride, and Episode 4: Escape Plan Bravo. We haven’t scored each one individually, but we will score the series as a whole this time. If you just want a full appraisal, skip down to the Series Summary at the end of this article.

Episode 4 was not just a high point for the Borderlands series, it was one of the best bits of work that Telltale Games have produced. The surprises, the shocks, and the ridiculous humour had been orchestrated to almost perfection, topped off by some brilliant performances from its voice cast. It meant that if Tales From The Borderlands was to end on a high note, Telltale had to go all out on everything. As I loaded up the game I was slightly nervous about if they could manage such a feat, but then I hit the main menu and I immediately sensed Telltale knew the gravity of the situation.

How, you ask? Simple – the re-recorded main theme.
