Video Review


There are far fewer quick time events in this episode, because the pace overall has slowed down from the running and gunning towards more conversation and guile. As a result, the episode has a better performance than 'Catch a Ride', and framerate hitches are less common. There are some problems with facial animations - they’re just not that expressive, which is unfortunate in scenes where they’re kind of important.

Audio Review


The audio is the usual quality for 'Tales from the Borderlands'. One scene stands out: another hilarious montage, this one in the vein of 80s action movies, complete with a retro, inspirational song in accompaniment.

Final Thoughts

'Escape Plan Bravo' makes a very strong showing as 'Tales from the Borderlands' moves steadily towards its conclusion. The characters are developing well, the plotline mostly makes sense, and the script is rife with signature 'Borderlands' humor, even if the plot as a whole shows more of the darkness of Telltale’s other series.
