    It would have been nice if Mad Moxxie lifted the level cap, but it still offers enough mayhem to make it worth the download for any Borderlands player looking for a little mindless killing.
  2. Borderlands' latest DLC has shown me the combat rhythm I've naturally settled into: the regular back and forth between whittling away at enemies with SMGs before disappearing in a puff of magic, to either slink off and let my shield charge up again, or pop up behind an unfortunate bruiser in order to blast chunks out of their neck with a shotgun.
  3. Gearbox has once again delivered a superb presentation with Mad Moxxi.
  4. This one will seperate the men from the boys, take the phone off the hook, get plenty of drinking water, send the kids out and get ready for hours of some fierce and stressful gaming.
  5. Perhaps not quite what Borderlands veterans were hoping for in the game's second DLC, but it still provides a fun and challenging co-op experience.

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 »
