    The main quest line is shorter and little slower paced than previous Borderlands 2 content, but the artwork that went into this DLC is outstanding - and with zones that pack a large sense of scope to hunt new creatures in, new loot and hours more enjoyment than a $10 movie ticket can give you, Sir Hammerlock's Big Game Hunt is easily worth the money.

    I will say that this DLC is really pretty and has some great new enemies and creature design. Just a real shame that it feels a little empty in terms of content. Every area has been lovingly designed and are a joy to explore and marvel. But they lack any real depth. Professor Nakayama is just a fantastic villain as he utterly surprised me with his attitude, trying and failing miserably at being a cliche. Honestly when have you ever seen a villain act the way that he did?! Never, or at least none that I can remember. So, high praise for a highly original character. Overall: An OK DLC that is saved by its visuals (and great leading villain) but failed by its lazy writing and underwhelming overall gameplay. Collapse

    Tough foes make this the go-to expansion for high-level fighters. [March 2013, p.81]

    Enjoying Sir Hammerlock's Big Game Hunt is about managing expectations, about knowing what you want out of Borderlands 2's constantly expanding menu -- its strong suits are the subtle twists on combat and enemy behavior, exploration, farming, and a hidden raid boss that costs almost 100 Eridium to spawn.

    While Sir Hammerlock may simply be "more Borderlands 2," it could have been a whole lot more, and feels a tad unfinished.
