    This review contains spoilers, click expand 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.

    The first dlc for borderlands 2 was a disappointment in my opinion. Don't get me wrong the characters were fine, the story if it just dragged on and I found myself very bored in the last quarter of this dlc. The enemies in the dlc are mainly just new skins apart from a few which are actually new. Although one if the new enemies is particularly overpowered, this enemy has the ability to steal health from you if he hits you which gets quite annoying after a while. Overall I didn't really like this dlc but other people may still enjoy it. Expand

    Laggy texture pop-in dulls some of the shine, and some of the more minor goofball characters are more intriguing than Scarlett herself. But you'll find enough charm, loot, and gritty challenge to merit getting some sand in your boots.

    There are some enjoyable moments and I don't doubt that the Borderlands faithful will enjoy what is offered as the visuals, continued humour, main story, and proven gameplay is evident here, it just seems to be a little less then what was established in the main game.

    Another juicy chunk of action, with a new cast of iconic characters, lots of new missions and even more loot-zilla. Captain Scarlett and Her Pirate's Booty needs yor help: what're you waiting for, Vault Hunter?
