Top Customer Reviews
- Humor/Writing is not as good as BL2.
- Pacing suffers more than BL2.
- Dialogue will easily be overwritten by walking away or doing something, so you easily lose half the things that are being said. In BL2 when you walked away, the game would switch the sound from proximity to directly over ECHO if you walked too far away. Not in this game!
- DLC dialogue sounds decide-ly penciled in (cue Aurelia's interactions at any point for an example here)
- There is new content by playing through a second time in True Vault Hunter mode. Athena narrates the story to Tiny Tina and Brick in TVHM, instead of Lilith. So there's some scraps of fresh content.
- the DLC characters have some REALLY rewarding skill trees. I enjoy playing the baroness and wish i could bring her over to BL2 and play here there.
Claptrap is challenging to play because of his unpredictable subroutines that make you good with particular weapons at particular times, but incur a penalty with all other weapons until a new subroutine is randomly chosen. His special abilities are similarly unpredictable, and result in all sorts of unexpected things that you'll find come in handy. The butt slam ability in zero G is a lifesaver, and how I managed to beat Deadlift, where my pistol and sniper rifle were coming up short. He's also as funny as ever.
I'm only a short way into it, but so far so good.
OK, so I finished the game. I've experienced exactly NO glitches (PC version). Now using the same 43rd level character on "True Vault Hunter" mode, and the enemies are super strong (I have over 10,000 health and 6000 shields but still get killed pretty quickly). At some stages, you'll need to get some friends or random players to join you, or you'll be stuck in certain areas for hours getting killed and losing all of your money.
That said, it is a great little expansion into what is already one of the most content heavy FPS exploratory shooter with random loot generated similar to Diablo and the like.
If you liked Borderlands 1 + 2 then this should be right about your speed. Recommend purchasing this for the meantime.
A large difference of note is the addition of an "atmosphere" in the world you explore. What this means is that in certain outdoor (and some indoor) areas you have an O2 meter that needs to be watched and continually refilled. It is'nt all that difficult to do since usually there are 'O2 recharge' spots scattered around the world, and usually killing enemies gives you a pretty good chance to get a small refill per kill. It usually isn't anything that is frustrating unless you get on a roll of head shot after headshot to then realize you are starting to run low.
How this new game mechanic translates into tons-of-fun is the ability while in an O2 deprived area to jump much higher than usual, and then hit your crouch button in order to slam down the ground below you dealing a nice amount of area of effect damage and pretty much killing what ever might be below you at the time. This really helps the flow of the game as I tend to get into a rhythm of jump-slamming around in order to build momentum and 'fly' all over the place. Loads of fun!
PS. Dont feel like you need the dlc to like this game. It is more fun that 2 psychos launching dead torks off a jump pad at a basketball hoop, even just with the base game.
