Captain Scarlett and Her Pirate's Booty
- It's alright by me. Not General Knoxx
good, but still serviceable enough although still weaker than the base game. Still some pretty neat treasures that I can obtain in the endgame, including E-Tech and Purple-rarity weapons in chests just after beating the final boss. Also pretty accessible at any time so long as you are around level 15 at least, so you don't have to worry about the storyline in relation to this.
Mr. Torgue's Campaign of Carnage
- Now THAT is a markedly better arena-based DLC than the first game's Mad Moxxi's Underdome Riot
was. Far less irritating gameplay-wise, and Mr. Torgue is a rather entertaining character. If there is one issue that I have with this DLC, aside from the fact that it's also weaker than the base game, the final boss can be pretty irritating to solo without using an exploit, but still doable. Still has its moments of fun but I didn't really bother completing all of the arena quests there. Similar to Captain Scarlett
, can be played at anytime regardless of where you are in the main story, but still requires at least around level 15.
Sir Hammerlock's Big Game Hunt
- Undoubtedly the weakest of the four. Not terrible, but it feels kinda short, even when you include sidequests. I can accept that there are some bullet-spongy enemies such as spores, as irritating as it can be, but Witch Doctors are pretty annoying to deal with, particularly vampiric ones (shudder
). Additionally, compared to the first two DLCs, the endgame just doesn't pay off as well. Sorry Hammerlock, you're a decent questgiver, but this just isn't your day. Still has its moments, and given the high level requirement can pose a decent challenge, but still the weakest.
Tiny Tina's Assault on Dragon Keep
- Easily the best DLC of the four. Can't really get into detail without spoiling the base game's story, because not only does it have a high level requirement, it also trusts that you finished the game the first time through, because there are elements that tie into the main story. What I can say is that Tina's DMing can make for some real fun moments as the game goes on, and I absolutely love Brick here.
Overall: Pretty good (particularly for Dragon Keep
), but try waiting for a sale. 7.5/10
