  1. Gearbox have gone slightly astray with this DLC, it's certainly not on the same level as their previous effort.
  2. While the new horde mode is welcome and the storage bank an absolute necessity for me I still wouldn't have purchased this add on myself. Therefore, I only recommend this expansion to those of you that love the horde mode present in most first person shooters or you absolutely need the storage space.
  3. Everything in the Underdome is a total hassle, and that gets old fast. That you don't gain any experience points or build up more weapon proficiency while in the arenas only makes a bad situation worse, and it makes the entire experience feel pretty pointless.

With no experience or equipment to gain, the core of the game is removed and make Moxxi's an unsatisfying DLC. The arenas add extra length, but they are so boring and repetitive it becomes old fast. Arenas also take around 2-4 hours to complete with no save points, making it a slog to the finish. If you are going to buy the Borderlands DLC, I would skip this one. Full Review »
