Gearbox’s ingenious hybrid has its problems, not the least that we’re all still wrestling with what it actually is. There’s not enough story mode content, the PVE missions vary in quality and the multiplayer modes can be a mess. Yet these are problems that Gearbox and the player community can fix. Battleborn has flaws but it also has potential. With time and the right attitude, it could be brilliant, but it’s going to take a little work first.
