Borderlands 2: Mechromancer Pack
Third party DRM: SteamThis game requires a free Steam account to play.
This download grants the Mechromancer, a 5th playable character class who can summon a destructive robot named Deathtrap. In addition to this new class, this pack also includes bonus items which were included in the Borderlands 2 Premiere Club Pack, including the Gearbox Gold Gun Pack, a Golden Key, which unlocks rare items in the mysterious Sanctuary Loot Chest, and the Vault Hunter’s Relic, which boosts your gear-hunting fortunes. If you have pre-ordered the game and received the Premiere Club content, you do not need to purchase this content.

If so, get this without hesitation. You get your minions and if you want to have those on your side, get this. I absolutely love Borderlands and I'd get anything they threw out at me, but if I were being unbiased, this character is unique from the others and offers something very different. She is the most difficult to use in the game, but if you want that challenge, she's perfect. I'd highly recommend her to those who want another challenge and have already went through the game.
New character. New Gameplay.Digitenor | May 24, 2013 | See all Digitenor's reviews »
I have played through the campaign multiple times now and recently purchased Gaige.
I must say she adds a new experience to the gameplay. I've enjoyed releasing my mech and watching it destroy enemies, whilst rushing around the map and pulling as many groups as I can for faster xp.
The only downside to this dlc is the price. Again this is a character that is not included with the season pass, along with the new Psych, Krieg.
Whilst other dlc's add new challenges and areas, I'd rather receive a character that adds 10's of hours of new gameplay as oppose to a dlc location that adds a few hours.

I am not sure if I would pick this up at the full 10 bux but definitely on a sale. Having a "pet" type class is very enjoyable and there are many skills in the trees to tailor how you want Deathtrap to play. Since resetting skills is easy in BL2, definitely play around with all the skills. People say this is the easiest class to play and it is if you follow the first skill tree line. However, the third skill tree is a bit more advanced and just as fun once you get used to it. If you don't own this, I would recommend you pick this up if you have experienced the original four classes and want another class to play through with.
10 bucks for a 5th character. Good for some, less for others.Pilgrim6 | May 11, 2013 | See all Pilgrim6's reviews »
Gaige is a sweet girl that packs a hell of a punch. Her special ability is her fellow companion called Deathtrap. Her personal bodyguard. Three trees. One for Deathtrap, one for damage (less accurancy however) and for elemental damage.
Mechromancer is in my opinion a very easy class. You can shoot enemies from distance while your little (or rather big) helper wrestles with them. This action ability has a very low cooldown and long duration thus you can have DT with you all the time.
I, for one, am very content with her but the fact is, I got her with a pre-order. Rest depends on you. Gaige surely does offer fun to BL 2 but it's up to you if 10 bucks is worth it. If you are a big BL 2 fan who has already spend hundreds of hours ingame, you surely want to try another class.
If you are a casual player, Gaige will be fun for you. But she won't dramatically change your game experience.
