    It was a decent DLC, I enjoyed Mr. Torgue who always made me chuckle otherwise it was just OK. Not bad, just nothing special. The location just felt like the rest of the main campaign. I wouldn't shell out for it unless you really need some fresh borderlands action and have already played the other 3 or if it goes on sale.

    This is probably the worst of all the Borderlands 2 DLCs, and both the plot and added gameplay is pretty unimagenative. Yet it's still Borderlands, so it provides some sort of fun, just not as much as the vanilla game or any of the other DLCs.

    Once again, Gearbox's consistency with the improvements of both the original game and the dlc's return in favor for this new installment. The Dialogue is still hilarious (especially with Mister Torgue), the areas are dynamic and unique, and the new Torgue Vending Machines, Currency, and Slot Machines add even more depth to this particular installment. Although I did wish you could use theOnce again, Gearbox's consistency with the improvements of both the original game and the dlc's return in favor for this new installment. The Dialogue is still hilarious (especially with Mister Torgue), the areas are dynamic and unique, and the new Torgue Vending Machines, Currency, and Slot Machines add even more depth to this particular installment. Although I did wish you could use the bikes you had to fight through the Catch-A-Ride System, the new currency is a nice touch to player progression and towards loot whoring. All torgue vending machines only sell torgue weaponry (obviously), and every weapon of the day is a legendary torgue weapon. The vending machines also sell valuable customization items for your classes, whether it be head or color patterns. Also, the new Battle Tiers also provides plenty of motivation to rack up enough torgue points to grab a legendary weapon. However, where in Pirate's Booty it's weakness was the cleverness from BL2, Torgue suffers from the player uniqueness. They aren't too especial from the pirates, considering they all function just like any other generic bandit. The Bike Riders and Suicide Bikers are really the only new unique touch to the game, and all other different enemies (Torgue Engineers, Torgue Loaders) are just simply reskinned with no new bearing on voice acting. Still, Gearbox has chosen wisely to make sure that This campaign is just as substantial as the first dlc, which brings up to the best point from these dlc's. IN the First Borderlands, None of the DLC's actually had you focused on a Vault, which was practically the epitome for the Vault Hunter's quest. I just felt that these earlier Vault Hunters had been retired of their job because they were hidden upon the guise that that particular vault was the ONLY vault on Pandora, or the universe. Fortunately, BL2's DLC's manages to keep the Vault Hunter prowess alive, With Each DLC mainly focusing on finding another Vault for endless loot and swag, and Mister Torgue's Campaign of Carnage manages to take a different role on the method of opening their vault compared to Pirate's Booty and so on. I can see that Gearbox shall continue making each DLC relevant to the idea of the 4 (or 5) mercenaries vault hunting. But Gearbox BETTER put a Level cap on the next dlc! Collapse

    Borderlands 2's second DLC offers a solid eight hour of entertainment filled with testosterone and crazy characters. The expansion might be slightly rushed, but is a lot of fun nonetheless.

    The jokes alone make flaming skags worth weathering.

    It's a little disappointing that, like the last DLC, this one doesn't raise the level cap for players, but if you enjoyed Borderlands 2 and you're looking for more of it, it's a great pickup.
