  1. Claptrap's New Robot Revolution is a bit of a letdown. There are no memorable moments here, and is nowhere near as good as Mad Moxxi's or General Knoxx add-ons.
  2. Claptrap Robolution doesn't fail to entertain, it simply fails to do so in a new and unique way. If you love Borderlands and just want more of the same, this DLC will win your heart.

Well, there are quite a few problems, certainly not in the same weight of Moxxis Underdone Riot, but this DLC falls short where it could have done great. In Knoxx DLC there is not only a massive main quest-line with all the comedy we love, but there is a seriousness to it. The enemies in this new DLC are not only weak (even if they are hilarious) but they are not even remotely challenging. As a true FPS fan I never found Borderlands to be "difficult" since it's a console port I wasn't hoping for challenging game-play. But the level cap increase in Knoxx gave us work to do, we couldn't just roll in and smash everything with the guns and gear we had from previous installments, it was like starting over again. Knoxx was more of an Expansion than DLC. Claptrap's New Robot Revolution should have either come BEFORE Knoxx, or not at all and simply be made into a web-series similar to what they did with the Claptrap Web-Series. I've been a huge fan of Borderlands since release, even if it is very easy. Walking into the new DLC sporting my Soldier with great gear from being level 61 and having played the Knoxx DLC for hours on end, I simply rolled through the entire DLC like it was nothing. Now I know I praise the Knoxx DLC, with good reason too - It's the best DLC the game has! But even the Zombie Island of Dr Ned was superior to the latest DLC from Gearbox. The Dr Ned DLC had all the same comedy, with some new and old places to explore, but it didn't take 1 hour to complete the main quest-line. When the Dr Ned DLC was released the level cap was still 50 so the enemies were balanced for a level 50 character on play-through 2. This worked extremely well, however in the fourth DLC we see the "scaling" effect that gearbox claimed to have in place ( supposedly to let you play this DLC whatever level you were ) fail miserably. I should not be a level 61 soldier with amazing guns and gear, fighting level 57-59's. If you like the borderlands humour then by all means go ahead and purchase this 4th DLC, but if you actually want to get your moneys worth then I advise simply avoiding it. Full Review »

It's still enjoyable, but it doesn't have the quality that the Dr. Ned and General Knoxx DLC's have. It's interesting to see the Claptraps finally taking a stand and turning the tables, but other than that, this DLC is much like an opened soda that sat outside too long; the taste is still there, but the perfect cold temperature and extra fizz isn't.

    While not a bad add-on per se, Robot Revolution didn't really bring anything new to Borderlands, most enemies just being ClaptrapifiedWhile not a bad add-on per se, Robot Revolution didn't really bring anything new to Borderlands, most enemies just being Claptrapified versions of existing ones. If you're the kind of person that really, really doesn't like Claptrap or any of his kind of humor, you should probably avoid this DLC. Otherwise, hey, it's more Borderlands! Full Review »
