This review is from: The Borderlands 2 Season Pass [Online Game Code] (Software Download)
Unlike previous season passes, this season pass does not include all of the game's dlc. I thought that was the point of a season pass, you're giving the developers a big boost in cash now instead of buying them 1 at a time as they come out. You're throwing the developers a bone and they throw one back. Edit for clarification: $30 today is worth more than $40 next year.
But no, that's not the way it is anymore.
The 5th class is not included in the season pass, and, as far as I know, no new costumes, classes, or other non-campaign content will be included. Those will be separate downloads, probably costing 10.00 each.
How much do they expect you to pay for borderlands 2? Right now the game is 100 bucks if you pay full price for everything.
0/10, would not recommend to a friend.

if you preorderd the game you will get the fifth class for free but youve bought the game after its been released so youll have to buy it .
and for the season pass its like battlefield 3 premium youll get it each dlc when its ready .

You should have read the description instead of making your own conclusions. It states the season pass is good for four DLC campaigns and makes no mention of new classes. This product does not deserve one star for providing exactly what it promises.
"How much do they expect you to pay for borderlands 2?"
They expect you to pay as much as you are willing to pay. If you think the price for the additional DLC is unfair then you can simply choose to not purchase it. Stop acting like you're entitled to everything.

The Season Pass lets you buy all 4 confirmed DLCs at $30 instead of $40 through individual purchases. That's all it does, and that's all Gearbox ever said it would do. I bought this on the 360 version through the in-game menu. Before I did, the latest DLC: "Captain Scarlet and her Pirate Booty" was listed for 800 MSP, and after I bought the Pass, the listing said "FREE", obviously meaning that it had been paid for by purchasing the Season Pass. The Mechromancer class was free to everyone who pre-ordered the game.
The DLC itself brings new gear, customizations, a vehicle and many new maps and adds about 10-12 hours of fresh gameplay. I don't see why you would expect a convenience option like the Season Pass to incorporate in-game features as well. It was never even rumored to bring such commodities to the game.

My plan is to wait for the inevitable "Game of the Year Edition" that includes everything ever released that's Borderlands 2 (similar to the Dragon Age Origins Ultimate Edition) that'll cost $40 or wait a bit longer and get it for $20. Pay $100+ now or less than half of that later for the same stuff. Seems an easy choice to me.

This review is stupid.

I wait myself for all content to be released and then I purchase the game. I cannot justify 100 dollars for any game purchase including DLC. Waiting a while has become worth it in the long run and it always goes on sale.

Actually, when you buy a game, you expect to get all the game from the get go. This DLC scam is a damn joke and all you people defending the DLC format are a bunch of scammed suckers blinded by your fanboy ignorance.

This season pass business is tough. On one hand, it's a valid argument to say "well, it plainly states that you only get 4 DLC with the season pass, so you can't really complain." On the other hand, I can understand why some are upset. When I hear "Season Pass," I think "all content." If you buy a season pass to your favorite sports team, you get to go to all the games, not just some of the games.
To me, labeling an item as a "Season Pass" and limiting the amount of content that pass involves seems a bit misleading. That's like buying a "Backstage Pass" to a concert only to find out that you don't actually get to go backstage, but you get front-row seats. Sure, it's still a deal, but not one that the label implies.
Either way, I can sympathize.
