    This is a brilliant expansion from Gearbox Whole new area of Pandora to explore with another rather amusing little storyline. I got this with the GOTY edition and would wholly recommended

    I was supposed to give this DLC a 9, but I accidently gave it a 10(epic fail).Well it´s still an awesome DLC.There is really nothing else I can say about it.

    Too much at $10? - that's crazy. I loved the DLC. New enemies - lot's of new humor - and Zombies! I spent $20 for a 2 hour movie I enjoyed a lot less than the $10 I spent on Zombie Island (and I got 6 hours of additonal fun).

    Borderlands was an amazing game and The Zombie Island just adds to its element of running around blowing off dude's limbs. It is a fun expansion ans is sooo worth it

    For $10 you get a decent chunk of missions, some new enemies to kill, new trophies to earn, and get a better taste of what the rest of Pandora might look like and how the corporations operate. Only problem I had with it was that its missions are made for lvl 30, so if you've finished the main story, it won't take long at all.

    Amazing DLC. Totally loved it. So much humor, that I even think that it outclassed the first one. A bit short though. 5-6h and almost all of the missions are done, which is quite sad. Worth buying for everybody that enjoyed this game

  1. The Zombie Island of Dr. Ned is maybe not attractive in terms of new weapons, skills or a higher level cap, but it’s funny, long and surprisingly comical.
  2. If nothing else, it's entirely fitting that a game that's always been brilliantly brainless is now genuinely brain-dead as well. Oh, and I finally got that bloody Mario-themed Achievement. SCORE.
  3. The Zombie Island of Dr. Ned is a solid addition for anyone who wants more Borderlands, but the lack of additional items or further opportunities for character building feel like a missed opportunity that could have given this content a lasting effect.
