Abradax has a lot of great points.
There are of course the character specific and game-type specific bugs that have been mentioned elsewhere on the forums.
As a story player, I’d really like to see a more cohesive, coherent story. There’s really very little story and the story missions have a very tenuous, unclear connection. There’s never any justification for why the “bad guys” do what they do, where they came from, and there’s really no sense of urgency for why the rest of us should care (yeah, there’s a dying star, but there’s no sense of urgency to it all). Also, Rendain never actually seems threatening as a “villain” and his motivations and power are unclear. It’s also relatively unclear what the different Battleborn factions are and how they relate to one another.
I’m hoping the 5 DLC story missions have more story and are NOT defense or escort missions. There are way too many already. It would also be nice to have more variety in terms of enemy types. There really isn’t much variety and it gets pretty stale pretty quickly.
I’d also really like some music in the game. There’s no music in Character Selection and no music on any of the story maps. It’s such an oddly quiet game. The music could really pump up players and help make the overall experience better. It could also make boss battles more intense and add some more fun to the game. Certain areas could have certain kinds of music. When Nova joins us on the story mission (don’t remember which one), maybe she blasts some techno or something Nova-esque.
Some more dialogue from the characters would also be nice. Hearing “That’s going in my memoirs!” 5x’s in a 30-minute period from Orendi gets old really fast, or hearing Toby constantly give the same apology (“Sorry, just doing my job!”) when killing enemies is frustrating. It would be fun to see the characters have more banter between each other and relate to each other in different ways (i.e. different character pairings = different dialogue). Overall, more variety would be nice to increase replayability and overall enjoyment.
