Sorry, I've been told that I'm not supposed to insult customers. What I *meant* to say was: you are attractive! People like you! If you buy this season pass, your bowel movements will smell like newly-washed sheets and your family will forgive you for all those times you told your grandmother you wanted to strangle her in her sleep!

Captain Scarlett and Her Pirate's Booty is the first DLC released. As the name hints, the main quest revolves around finding some long dead pirate's treasure. As established in the previous game's DLC, there are no oceans on Pandora anymore. That little fact doesn't stop places from being nautical and pirate themed. There are boats and anchors lying around. There's a lighthouse that sits on a thin column of rock a thousand or so feet high, and even at the top, you cannot see any large bodies of water. You will see Captain Scarlett again.
Mr. Torgue's Campaign of Carnage involves entering a tournament, and rising to the top. As the name suggests, the weapon manufacturer Torgue sponsors it. Starting in this DLC, some characters from the main story will be stationed in the area you're in. For example, your trainer is Tiny Tina, which makes for some hilarous moments.
Sir Hammerlock's Big Game Hunt supposedly takes you to another continent, but all I found there was a huge cave full of savages. In all, I thought this was the weakest of the four story DLCs. The villain is incompetent and realizes that he's giving key points away like a Saturday morning show. It all ends with disappointment.
Tiny Tina's Assault on Dragon Keep might be the best of the bunch. You are playing as the characters in a Bunkers and Badasses (AKA Dungeons and Dragons) game with the other Vault Hunters back in Santuary. Tiny Tina is the "bunker master", which makes the whole ordeal very hilarious. Sometimes characters will start talking with the noticeable verbal tics of a tweenage girl. The whole thing is a great retelling of the entire Borderlands 2 story in a fantasy environment.
The DLC is extremely challenging. Most critics agree with this point. I'm playing through True Vault Hunter mode as the assassin class modded for the long-range sniping tree. I also tend to play alone because I got sick of playing with morons (the only thing worse than hacking it out alone is facing harder-leveled enemies with people who can't pull their own weight) and people who would kickban everybody and grab the loot. Perhaps the game is easier to play if you're a more balanced class like the Commando with his middle-tree.
Hammerlock's quest is exceptionally difficult. The bandits are uncannily powerful and the shamans make life hell as they can level up the bandits, heal them and heal themselves. The Shamans also have quite a lot of health and their crit-spot is obscured by a face-mask so you have to wait until they're turned around for a sniper shot (while you're dodging spears) or else use explosive rounds from an assault rifle and hope for a lucky shot. I have essentially given up after losing roughly 500,000 in respawn fees at level 50 and completing only 3 quests. I'll likely go back either with a team of non-idiots or when I've leveled up 1 or 2 to make things fair.
The Torgue Arena expansion is also glaringly difficult, although less so as the enemies more closely resemble the bandits you've been putting down for half the game already. The goliaths are a lot easier to crit since they keep their heads on. Also, note that there are very few "safe" zones in this area. Just because there's a teleport device and a couple of vending machines, it doesn't mean the biker bandits aren't right on top of you. There are very few places to catch a breather in this dlc if the fighting gets hot and you'll need to always be on the lookout for enemies to crawl out.
The Captain Scarlett Pirate adventure is actually the easiest from the get-go, although still a lot harder than the original game. Again, it's mostly bandits with pirate skins on them so nothing you haven't really seen before. The worms are like stalkers. Just carry a shotgun and you'll be fine with them.
My main reason for the 2-star demotion is that I believe a game should be equally playable alone or with a team. Playing with friends always enriches an experience, but the idea is to improve on an already excellent platform, not form the basis for one. This seems to be a trend the game-industry is headed towards on a whole. If the leveling and mechanics had a bit of work to ensure a competent single-player could go through a map with enemies leveled at his or 1 or 2 higher, this expansion would be perfect. The multi-player experience is phenomenal (depending on who you get stuck with). I'd give it 4 stars for people who have a reliable multi-player party.
If you have friends who play Borderlands, try to all buy the game for the same platform. Without cross-platform multiplayer, if one of you has Xbox 360, another PS3, and the last person has a PC, you're all going to be stuck roughing alone or with strangers. My friends are Xbox junkies, although I'm hoping to persuade at least 3 of them with decent machines to make the switch to PC (and OSX) gaming.
- Captain Scarlett and Her Pirate's Booty
- Mr. Torgue's Campaign of Carnage
- Sir Hammerlock's Big Game Hunt
- Tiny Tina's Assault on Dragon's Keep
- Ultimate Vault Hunter Upgrade Pack (Level cap is increased to 61 and enable Pearlescent Weapons).
The following is not included in this Season Pass:
- Gaige the Mechromancer
- Krieg the Psycho
Overall, this season pass will add about 20 hours of more game play. Great new weapons, new vehicles, new bosses and the AI acts differently, making the game challenging.
