Step into an enchanting blend of adventure, role-playing, and first-person shooting, all wrapped in the captivating style of a graphic novel! Gearbox Software and publisher 2K Games have unleashed a standalone marvel inspired by the beloved 2013 Borderlands 2 DLC, Tiny Tina’s Assault on Dragon Keep. Welcome to Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands, where at Player Opinion, we’ve ventured deep into the D&D-inspired fantasy world of Bunkers and Badasses. We rolled our own multiclass hero, then looted, shot, and slashed our way on a quest to stop the evil Dragon Lord.


Tiny Tina's Wonderlands Game Review


Gameplay Experience: 16/25

Staying true to the legacy of the Borderlands series and following in the footsteps of its predecessors, Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands boasts controls that are familiar and easy to use. While the gameplay proves enjoyable, players might find that decisions lack significant impact within the game’s overall story. Nonetheless, when it comes to the game’s balance, even on higher difficulties and at maximum Chaos level, the experience remains thoroughly enjoyable. Players are consistently rewarded with newer, better, and sometimes intriguing loot, ensuring engagement throughout their journey. However, as players exhaust the game’s content, this engagement gradually wanes, leaving them feeling all-powerful with limited activities to pursue.

Presentation & Immersion: 18/25

The artistic style in Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands is a hallmark of Gearbox Software’s first-person shooters, offering players a unique visual experience. Combined with a sarcastic and snappy narrative—although some players may find Borderlands 2 more geared toward adults, and thus more enjoyable— Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands immerses players in its fantastical world. Unique weapon sounds and interesting quips from enemy NPCs further enhance the immersion. The polished HUD, like previous Gearbox titles, seamlessly integrates with the gameplay, providing a familiar and intuitive interface. As players embark on their journey, they are guided by Tiny Tina, voiced by Ashly Burch, who takes on the role of dungeon master, describing encounters and shaping the game’s world to her whims. This dynamic storytelling approach enhances the overall experience, offering players a truly engaging adventure.

Design & Technical: 18/25

While Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands is wonderfully crafted, its content falls short, as previously mentioned. However, it compensates for this deficiency with well-established mechanics honed over the course of numerous titles. The AI, while aggressive, tends to be predictable, and boss fights, while enjoyable, lack significant challenge until players reach higher difficulties such as Intense coupled with maximum Chaos—although this level of difficulty is not essential for an enjoyable experience. This may make the experience less engaging for solo players but enhances multiplayer fun. Moreover, the game offers a plethora of customizable settings, contributing to its adaptability and ensuring that players can tailor their gameplay experience to their preferences. Throughout our playthrough, we encountered minimal technical issues, none of which were game-breaking.

The Skinny About Tiny Tina's Wonderlands

Final Considerations: 19/25

At Player Opinion, we found Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands (Steam Link) to be a satisfying experience overall. Despite its shortcomings, such as its brevity and lack of endgame content, especially without the Seasons Pass, the game offers some longevity and replay value with its addition. However, it’s disappointing that essential content feels like a microtransaction. Throughout our playthrough, we got considerable enjoyment from exploring different characters within the game. It’s worth noting that it falls short compared to Borderlands 3 and even further from the acclaimed Borderlands 2. Nevertheless, it still delivers an enjoyable experience, especially if purchased during a sale. In conclusion, we recommend giving it a try, but advise taking your time with it rather than rushing through. Enjoy the journey!
