Reviews for Borderlands 2: Psycho Pack DLC

You are the psycho

Now you get to play as a psycho as well as killing them. Krieg is a very melee heavy class and has some interesting skill tree options that provide some unique gameplay. The melee style doesn't take some getting used to but it is well worth it, a very enjoyable character to play. A must for a borderlands fan that is craving something new.

A Natural Fit

Often DLC can feel "tacked on" or a little out of place, especially when introducing new characters. Fortunately Krieg is a perfect fit for the Borderlands universe. His dialog is that great brand of off the wall humor you've come to expect and his chaotic play-style is very natural (note that I didn't say easy). If you're the tactical, assess your options, type of player then just move along, Krieg is not for you, as you're going to spend the vast majority of your time in the thickest parts of the battle. Not that there is no thought needed to play the character, you have to balance taking damage to buff and staying alive. Also you can set yourself on fire, on purpose, as a buff. The base price seems a little steep since you'll probably be on your second playthru when you use this character so most people should probably hold out for one of the frequent sales. That said, if you're really hooked on Borderlands 2 but want some more variety then you probably will get the full price value out of this.

An unique and chaotic character to play as

No matter which skill tree you choose, Krieg gives you an unique experience. With one you want to be set on fire as much as possible to get greater defense, damage etc, for example. He's very melee focused, and at least I mainly ran around slicing up people to get my super charged up, so I could slice people up even more effectively. It was really fun. I would recommend getting the Season Pass or GoTY, since 8£ feels a bit pricey for one piece of DLC, and you should really get them during a sale, since the discounts can be pretty heavy.

Light the Fuse!

The sixth and final vault hunter for BL2, Krieg is definitely the most remarkable of the bunch gameplay-wise. Gearbox admittedly designed him around things regular players don't want to do ( running headfirst into gunfire, being ON FIRE, or just generally taking huge risks), this being the reason why I can't wholeheartedly recommend the Psycho. You see, Krieg plays very differently from other characters, while also being less flexible. You can build a gun-toting Krieg, but he'll be much weaker than any other ranged class and subsequently he'll be disappointing to play. No, Krieg demands you to build him the "right" way, he demands huge risks so he can reap enormous rewards. Whether or not you actually "enjoy" his style does not concern him. In a rather comical way, this "you're going to have to take risks" applies to PURCHASING him as well: He can easily become your favourite vault hunter or be a total waste of money. Two more things to talk about, one being the charachter itself, which is Borderlands quality (aka pretty damn amazing), Krieg's well written and voice acted. Also, he needs levels to be effective. Synergy is very important to his build, expect to feel pathetic for the first few levels.

crazy balls

“it's game about guns. why on Earth, why on Earth would you want to keep meleeing everybody? it's such an absurd idea” - TotalBiscuit well how wrong was that statement lol. having played over 500+ hours, and having played through all three difficulties on all six characters, KRIEG IS AWESOME! as in fun, enjoyable, actually gave a new less of life to the game. caveat emptor (buyer beware): “meh, this seems like a waste of money” is a common thought at first. and it does suck you have to play extra for Krieg (unless you brought the GOTY edition) but around level 31 you can unlock “Release the Beast” in his MANIA skill tree. soon as you understand what this does, you’ll start playing Borderlands 2 in a totally different way than you have been.
