A little bit 'out there'

taigatsu | Feb. 15, 2014 | See all taigatsu's reviews »

Probably the biggest departure of all the classes in Borderlands 2, the Psycho is something you'll either love or hate. His playstyle emphasizes a lot of dashing headlong into danger, balancing on a razor thin line between being a rage fueled beast of destruction, and lying dead in a gutter. The more you risk with the Psycho, the stronger he becomes. He gains buffs from gaining damage, and even has an entire tree dedicated to lighting himself on fire! Playing as the Pyscho is a lot different from the other classes. if you're interested in a character that puts it all on the line, getting up close and personal and grinding faces with a power saw, this DLC is worth picking up; if you prefer a more typical experience, you might want to stick to one of the other characters in the game.

One Man, Lots of Crazy, No Survivors

CrimsonWizard | Oct. 10, 2013 | See all CrimsonWizard's reviews »

If you've enjoyed Borderlands 2 so far, but have been eager to play it a little differently, you'd be remiss to ignore the new, and hilariously bloody Psycho class. Krieg is a fun character to use, despite being a bit risky with his more melee focused abilities. That said, he's an excellent addition to a team, and he has some of the funniest dialogue in the game if you pick him up. Kind of an accomplishment if you know the tragic backstory behind him. Either way, if you've always wanted to play as one of the Psycho enemies if they were awesome, Krieg has everything you'd want. Try him out, he's a great pick up for your roster.

Like Brick?

Pycorax | Oct. 5, 2013 | See all Pycorax's reviews »

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 different playstyle

Knctrnl1 | Sept. 16, 2013 | See all Knctrnl1's reviews »

If you like playing on the edge the Krieg may fit your playstyle. Seems to be people either love the character or hate it. Definately worth getting if your a melee fan... or a pyro. Also worth grabbing as just a Borderlands 2 fan and can find it on sale. But if you enjoy melee in shooters then he is for you,

"Strip the flesh!"

Alcatraz_Inmate | Sept. 10, 2013 | See all Alcatraz_Inmate's reviews »

Ah nothing is quite as satisfying as going on a maniacal rampage slashing and hacking away enemies as a bloodthirsty psycho. Krieg brings something entirely new to the game as he is the first class based off the bandits you've been so accustomed to shooting in the face. He is a psycho among psychos and I love it. When you go on a rampage there are very few who pose any threat. Once you spec out his crazy trees you'll indeed see who a real "badass" is.
