    Amazing. Best value for money gaming I ever paid for. Gearbox improved the game in everyway that it needed improving, and then some. There

    Tons of fresh content, new missions, maps, great humor, weapons and the raised level cap is a giant plus. I had to subtract two points due to the number of glitches (I've fallen through the world 3 times now), lack of fast transit system (just like in Zombie Island...it's really annoying to turn in a mission only to get a new one that requires you to drive/walk 10 minutes back Tons of fresh content, new missions, maps, great humor, weapons and the raised level cap is a giant plus.

All things considered though this feels like a massive apology for the underwhelming Underdome DLC and is easily worth your $10. Expand

    I just finished the Armory on Playthrough 1 with a lvl. 50 character. There were several points at which I either died or almost died. Knoxx himself is one of the most thrilling and satisfying boss fights I've played in a while. I fear the 2nd Playthrough, only because I'm going to run out of money trying to conquer this massive, well-made add-on.

    Easily the best DLC for borderlands to date, there's tons of missions, a higher level cap, new enemies, and plenty to explore. It would receive a perfect 10 from me if it weren't for the fact that there's only one transit pole in the entire area and you have to do A LOT of backtracking at times.

    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 thatThe 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.

    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. Expand

    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.
  2. The Secret Armory of General Knoxx is a huge addition to Borderlands and delivers new enemy types, new weapons, new quests, new vehicles and rises the level cap to 61. Last but not least, it offers the chance to face the most dangerous enemy we've ever found in the game. Great fun and a good epilogue to one of the sleeper blockbusters of last year.
  3. 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.
