    Easily the best piece of DLC we've seen this year. [Issue#191, p.92]
  2. The truth is, when it comes to DLC, nobody is doing this stuff as well as Gearbox's team at the moment.

    The new content makes the game feel fresh once again, and the size and scope are absolutely amazing when you consider this is a download-only expansion. It is sad that this may in fact be the final DLC for the game, but if it is, what an incredible way to go out.

    This is by far the best of the three add-ons for the core game, and the most fun I had since I completed the main game last year.
  5. The increased level cap, new vehicles, new weapons, and enemies with high difficulty levels will not only give you more to do in the game but also provide a very challenging path to complete the missions.
  6. Compared to the other two DLC offerings for Borderlands, 'The Secret Armory of General Knoxx' is the one I would recommend for anyone who haven't jumped into any of the new content yet. Not only does 'General Knoxx' expand on the ending of the original game, but it offers up a number of new tweaks that work in everyone's favour.
  7. The best DLC available for Borderlands - An absolute must-buy for fans. [May 2010, p.83]
  8. The Secret Armory of General Knoxx does a great job of both extending the Borderlands gameplay and bringing new elements like creatures, weapons and the new level cap.
  9. General Knoxx may suffer some as a result of all of the fiddling, but in the missteps you can see the start of something bigger than what Borderlands was originally intended to be.
  10. With The Secret Armory of General Knoxx, Gearbox injects new life into one of the most addictive and brilliant digital worlds of 2009. New stories and missions, different vehicles, large maps and crazy characters can give Borderlands lovers a fair amount of playtime. Must buy for mercenaries, Crypt hunters and... claptraps!
  11. Between the core missions and the side stuff, you could easily spend another 10 hours or more going through General Knoxx.
  12. A really huge expansion to Borderlands that feels a little bit like a missed opportunity. But all the tedious transportation and rather dull enemies can't hide the fact that there really is a lot to do here, and that the new vehicles are good fun. In the end, General Knoxx is recommended for all of you who have missed the adventures on Pandora.
  13. It is funny, but the fact that it is so big makes large portions of the game seem like a boring chore.

    By far the best out of the three DLC packs. Higher level cap, new enemies, a HUGE new world to explore, what else could you ask for, a million dollars? To say that this DLC pack needed anything else would be being extremely greedy in my eyes. Perfect. 10/10 Full Review »

    There's alot of fun to be had with this DLC. New cars. New guns (pearlecent). New enemies. NPCs are funnier than before and better developed. Level cap to 61 is a good addition. Worth a try. Full Review »
