A great new addition to the roster

DoomHK | May 17, 2013 | Review of Borderlands 2: Psycho Pack DLC

I'll be the first to admit that I wasn't a fan of Gaige, the character offered to pre-orderers. She didn't appeal to me from a gameplay sense, and I found her character annoying, so I continue with Maya, enjoying the carnage a Siren can inflict upon everything.

I was immediately interested in Krieg, and upon downloading him, I'm not disappointed. He's equally viable as either a melee or ranged character, with his character skill have a melee (swinging a buzzsaw at enemies) and ranged (throwing said buzzsaws) option, restoring his health with each kill.

Each of his trees perfectly suits a playstyle: Melee, Ranged and Elemental/Fire. I'm currently working my way down his Melee tree, and it's immensely satisfying to carve a path through enemies, and in the event that I do go down, Krieg can run around throwing dynamite, as opposed to crawling around on the floor.

He gives you a number of options to play with, and he looks awesome. I ended up naming him 'Bane'. I HIGHLY recommend him to anyone that loves wrecking enemies, as opposed to simply gunning them down.

I think the cooldown on his character skill is a little too long (120 seconds) but you can chip away at that cooldown by putting skill points in the right places.
