Reviews of the premiere episode are starting to come in. See what some of your favorite outlets are saying about Tales from the Borderlands: Episode One – Zer0 Sum:
- "Tales from the Borderlands is brilliant proof that professional fan fiction can be a beautiful thing. The first episode "Zer0 Sum" sets a high entry bar into the series but one that's fun to surmount." – Gamespot (9/10)
- "Tales from the Borderlands Episode 1: "Zer0 Sum" is everything I'd expected from Telltale's take on this franchise, executed with such skill that it's hard to find anything to complain about. – Polygon (8.5/10)
- "Telltale's trip back to its comedy roots is a triumph. Rhys and Fiona are a duo I want to spend more time with." – PCGamesN (9/10)
- "Explosive and hilarious, episode one starts Tales from the Borderlands off on the right foot, making it worthwhile to buy into the season early." – Gamesradar
- "Its consistently funny writing and duo of unreliable narrator protagonists set the stage for a great overarching story, and it feels very much like it belongs in the Borderlands franchise. If the rest of hte season maintains this level of quality, Tales from the Borderlands will be up there in history with the other great recent Telltale adventures." – Destructoid (9/10)
- "Rhys especially is shaping up to be a great character who's always going to be pulled between his natural urge to be a shark and the chance to become something else, while Fiona's profession all but guarantees back-stabbings and dramatic swerves." – Eurogamer
