Oct 17, 2012Captain Scarlett and her Pirate's Booty is what downloadable content ought to be: expansive and apart. It's instantly recognisable, but it experiments with many of the gameplay mechanics players are familiar with. It introduces carefully conceived and thoroughly realised new non-player characters, and provides an encapsulated encounter that any fan of Borderlands 2 would do very well to consider.

Oct 18, 2012excellent DLC, definitely worth 800 MSP, amazing new landscapes, weapons and 6 hours worth of Story gameplay, and over 5 hours of side missions. The same humor, new vehicle, excellent. My quarrel: the side quests are all extremely repetitive (fetching mainly). Either way, I'd say: get this one, Mechromancer? not so much… Full Review »
Oct 18, 2012Borderlands 2 continues to deliver all we expect and more from this fantastic franchise. In its first major Downloadable Content pack titled Captain Scarlett and Her Pirates Booty you continues the adventures of your chosen vault hunter on Pandora. This time your taken to Oasis, a desert plateau surrounded by dried up sea beds and cliffs that are miles high. You are there to find a lost treasure that have claimed many a pirates life however the infamous Captain Scarlett agrees to assist you in finding it.
The DLC will last you around 5 hours for just the main questline but around 8 or 9 to 100% it, its a large DLC by any standards including new character customisations, a new vehicle and new weapons. Captain Scarlett is a must own for any Borderlands 2 fan.… Full Review »
Apr 25, 2013This review contains spoilers, click full review link to view. There are things that make Borderlands 2 one of the best RPG/FPS titles of today, and that's clever writing and pure trolling. This expansion, in comparison, is literally BORING. I doesn't matter if you play 4 player co-op, the travel to one place to another is the most tedious and lackluster experience of all time.
Recycled enemies that have next to no variation, some are even cheaper than they needed to be. Missions are not funny, The whole concept of "pirates" is wasted, your vehicle is barely controllable and in general, it adds very little to the whole vault hunting experience, in this case, replaced with the thematic of having to find a bad-ass treasure.
Having next to 0 NPC's in all the sectors that you can explore, and the few that are there that deliver very few funny lines, are not enough to compensate for the 6-10 hours of gameplay (depending if you do missions other than the story mode), in which at least one third will be spent on going to one place to another, and one hour in the final boss which is one of the lamest there can be in this game. In the end, you feel like very little was accomplished other than getting above-average equipment, and a couple of bad-ass levels.
Over-all, it's not the ultimate challenge experience for hardcore players. It's more like an excuse to keep playing the game and keep getting new exiting guns. But when it comes to what's the taste the game leaves at the end of the original story mode, the characters, the looting, the NPC's, the clever writing, everything that made your experience not a boring and mind-less farming, it's not found here.… Full Review »
