The Invincible Son of Crawmerax the Invincible?

This being the last Borderlands 2 DLC, people expected a lot from it, especially when they heard the almighty Crawmerax's offspring will be here for revenge. Interestingly enough it's not the giant crabworm, but the writing, voice acting and visuals are what carry this experience ( surprised? I just described the strongest points of any and all headhunter pack ), such as when the old Vault Hunter crew reminisce about the Crawmerax fight. "Remember that ledge?" - Does this line fill you with a sense of nostaglia? If so, I truly think you should pick this one up. If you haven't even heard of "that ledge", well, there'll be plenty of interesting things happening to the current set of Vault Hunters too, albeit mostly just setup / sequelbait. If only the Son had inherited his father's "quality-lootsplosionness", this would've been a much better Headhunter pack.

A throwback to Borderlands 1

This final Headhunter DLC Pack throws in some of the same kinds of gameplay that was present in Borderlands 1, mainly small, heart-pounding skirmishes and finally a huge near-impossible boss to defeat. All in all I had a lot of fun with this DLC, and it's a really nice conclusion to the Headhunter DLCs.

The best headhunter pack hands down.

This headhunter pack is full of unique and interesting things you wouldn't expect from a headhunter pack. It has several new assets to the game like the treasure varkids, and an actual raid boss rather than those other pushover bosses from the previous headhunter packs. While the son of crawmerax may not drop as much loot as his father from Borderlands 1, it is still pretty rewarding to take him down. Overall this pack offered a great experience that all Borderlands fans should play.
