Like Brick?

Pycorax | Oct. 5, 2013 | Review of Borderlands 2 Psycho Pack DLC - PC

This is the character that you can really have fun rushing into the heat of the battle and not give a shit for strategy. Its just like Brick from the first game except better. The problem with Brick in the first game was that he couldn't do anything out of his range, making certain fights (eg. Krom) very hard to solo. The presence of the throw-able buzz-axe remedies this perfectly. Besides, who doesn't like throwing buzz-axes? The writing for this character is pretty amazing as well. The few lines that the developers were able to sneak in in between the action of the game are funny while being serious and dark in true Borderlands fashion. Whether it is exactly worth the full price of $9.99 is debatable, however.


A set might not be better than the parts it is made up of

Pycorax | Aug. 8, 2013 | Review of Borderlands 2 Season Pass Overflow - PC

If you enjoyed Borderlands 2 itself, then go ahead and get this. I'll have to say though, the first 3 DLC were not as great when compared to the first game's DLC. However, if you are that desperate for more Borderlands, go ahead, it might not be the best but it is at the very least decent. The money would be better spent on the previous game if you hadn't bought it in my opinion. The final DLC though, is what you really want to look at. The story alone in Tiny Tina's Assault on Dragonkeep, not to mention its amazing soundtrack, is more than enough to keep you entertained. Do note that it contains spoilers for the main story. Imagine, its like the Saints Row 2 of Borderlands, a balance between absurdity and the dark overarching theme. The Ultimate Vault Hunter Pack is a nice add-on to the pack and it essentially is a playthrough 3 except significantly harder. It isn't like playthrough 2 where certain enemies were upgraded to their playthrough 1 "hardcore" version and at a higher level. Playthrough 3 includes new varieties of previous enemies that are never seen before in the previous.
