    The overall attention in the Secret Armory is impressive, and the quirks that made the main game so memorable are definitely present here.
  2. If you enjoyed Borderlands in its fullest and were hoping there was a way to extend the game-time without necessarily plunging into a second playthrough or a new character, The Secret Armory of General Knoxx is just that continuation you were looking for.
  3. The truth is, when it comes to DLC, nobody is doing this stuff as well as Gearbox's team at the moment.
  4. This lengthy add-on is filled with so much humor, action, and looting satisfaction that it could very well be the highlight of all your Pandoran adventures.

    The new content makes the game feel fresh once again, and the size and scope are absolutely amazing when you consider this is a download-only expansion. It is sad that this may in fact be the final DLC for the game, but if it is, what an incredible way to go out.
  6. The Secret Armory of General Knoxx is by far one of the best pieces of DLC out there and will give you a minimum of ten hours of gameplay, significantly more if you want to hit the new level cap, and with more Borderlands DLC on the way, they certainly know what the fans want, and how to deliver the goods.
  7. General Knoxx is exactly the kind of DLC that the fans of Borderlands were hoping for: a brand new set of missions with new enemies, locations and loots. The high difficulty setting, especially on the second run, makes this DLC perfect for those who reached the previous level cap.

    This is by far the best of the three add-ons for the core game, and the most fun I had since I completed the main game last year.

    The inability to fast travel through the zones is annoying, but the levels are well constucted and the story was kind of fun and daft in the Borderlands theme, the ending level is geared more to a multiplayer than a single player experience Full Review »

    This is easily the best Borderlands DLC. It adds a ton of new content in the forms of quests, a new story, new enemies, new vehicles and of course new weapons. Everything still has the same wit and charm as the base game. The level cap has been raised, making it worthwhile for anyone already at max level. The only minuses are that there are numerous glitches (my favorite being the time my character drove off without the car), and the severe amount of time wasted going to quests or backtracking. Still, this expansion is the best and completely worth the asking price. Full Review »

    The Secret Armory of General Knoxx is an almost perfect DLC, it adds tons of new weapons, quests, and other features, and it extends the level cap by 11, and adds a lot more hours gameplay, my only complaint and the only thing keeping it from a perfect 10, is that it has only one transit pole, which means you have to do a lot of backtracking through this massive DLC, but other than that this is a must own for Borderlands fans.
