Video Review


'Atlas Mugged' is a Telltale game with a coat of 'Borderlands' paint. Pandora is a dry, desolate wasteland, filled with filthy bandits and sleazy con artists. The visuals relay this environment aptly, although the textures sometimes suffer. Telltale’s signature hangs and freezes make their usual appearance, but aren’t as dramatic as usual.

Audio Review


This episode replaces the dubstep of 'Zer0 Sum' with the more guitar-heavy faux Western rock that we’ve grown accustomed to in the FPS series. The score is well done, and the voice acting is sterling as usual. Like the video, there are some audio stutters, but usually only briefly after the game returns from a pause.

Final Thoughts

'Atlas Mugged' is a strong episode for 'Tales from the Borderlands', if not a standout one quite yet. The series is still absolutely worth the cheap entry price.
