I mean, who doesn't love Tiny Tina?asiersua | Sept. 28, 2013 | See all asiersua's reviews »
This DLC is the grand finale of the first Borderlands 2 DLC season, and damn right it is a great finale. You probably loved Tiny Tina in the original storyline. Well, be prepared for more of that! The whole storyline, dialogs, and all the new areas and enemies are just what you'd be expecting from a D&D game. But this is Borderlands! So be prepared for laughing a whole lot and for the epic references from other games/books/series. If you liked Borderlands 2, you won't be disappointed with this one. I mean, one does not simply refuse to get a DLC of which the main star is Tiny Tina.

Swords and sorcery, high mountains and dark forests, yes that's right, this DLC is all about classical fantasy, brought to you by mind of Tiny Tina. Much like Magicka or the Trine games, Assault on Dragon Keep pays a lot of love and tribute to the genre while simultaneous poking at it's ribs for humor. Your adventure begins as the vault hunters from Borderlands 1 choose classes that just so happen to align with the classes and characters of Borderlands 2.
You arrive on the shores of a new, mysterious land, and in the first five minutes you realize that this is still Borderlands 2 with loads of humor. The DLC does a good job of keeping up with Tiny Tina's imagination and quick changes as her players make demands of her with settings, goals, and puzzles being changed on a dime. It also has a very nice variety of environments to play around in, far more so than the previous DLCs and plenty of quests and encounters to fill the gaps.
The story itself is rather nice jab at fantasy stories and games in general, but also gives a nice spotlight to Tina for her fans, and even gives her character a bit of depth as you play on in her game's setting. In fact, nearly all the major characters from BL2 get an appearance as sort of a last hurrah for the current batch of Season Pass DLC, most of them getting at least a few funny lines to make you laugh between the shooting.
Speaking of which, Assault on Dragon Keep has a nice variety of monsters, covering nearly all your stock fantasy enemies from orcs, skeletons, knights, wizards, and more, but adapting them to BL2 rules to give them the little twist of guns in addition to whatever bows, axes, and swords they may have on them. Add in a nice variety of bosses and mini-bosses and you have a great expansion to the main BL2 that will entertain you for a while. If you haven't gotten this already from the Season Pass, I highly recommend trying it out. By far, this is the strongest of the DLCs and I look forward to Gearbox's next episode in the BL2 world.
The best one yetnightassassin1 | Aug. 26, 2013 | See all nightassassin1's reviews »
This is by far the best Borderlands 2 DLC so far. I say so far because there has been an announcement that there will be even more DLC to come, however this is the last DLC that is to be included in the Season Pass. This one is pretty much ran by Tiny Tina in an attempt to cope with the loss of Roland and Bloodwing, which hinders the story in a small way. This attempt to cope make the game quite a bit more sad and unsettling than other DLC. I feel they should have dropped that and went with more comedy instead.
Over all the DLC plays similar to that of Dungeons and Dragons, Path Finder, or something similar. There are chests that you open and get randomized by the dice that you throw, the higher the number, the higher your reward. These are a neat change compared to the completely random chests you normally find in Borderlands 2.
The graphics are mostly dark, but jump back and forth as Tina changes the game in odd and dramatically opposite ways.
Over all I loved this DLC. I will only take off 3 points for the extreme drops in mood caused by Tiny Tina.

Do you want more of the craziness that is Tiny Tina? This DLC won't disappoint you. The references and the wacky dialog will leave you with a giant grin on your face. Must buy if you own Borderlands 2!
Best Addition Yet!Plasros | July 5, 2013 | See all Plasros's reviews »
Tiny Tina is probably the best addition to The Borderlands Universe so I love seeing a DC centered around her. The graphics are unique much like Hammerlock's DLC was but the story and exploration here is sooo much better. It's the first time in a Borderlands game where I don't feel like I am thrown into a sandbox area and its refreshing.
It actually feels like a linear adventure with little side roads along the way which is refreshing to the usual Borderlands game dynamic of grab quest, run either north, east, south, west to complete, and then backtrack to complete quest.
It is easily the best DLC to Borderlands 2. I would rank them as: 1) Dragon Keep- Fantastic 2) Pirate Captain Scarlett DLC Good to Great 3) Torgue Campaign- Average to Good (mainly because of Mr. Torgue) 4) Hammerlock- Forgettable other than the graphic design
