I just beat the DLC and yeah, it’s pretty weak, when compared to the other two, IMO…
The new area is basically a mix between Pandora and Eden-6, with a touch of Wild West added on it and NPCs saying stuff like “baka” and “tomodachi”, which is as hilarious as you can imagine… and the enemies are pretty much nothing you haven’t faced in the previous DLCs or the main campaign, save for maybe one new enemy called Belik or something like that.
Rose is literally the only interesting new character added to this DLC and or course, Gearbox had to go and kill her just as quickly as she was introduced, because for whatever reason, Gearbox seems to enjoy to kill any interesting new character they introduce right away, and I’m actually surprised Wainwright wasn’t killed at the end of the previous DLC, while the rest feels like a bunch of generic NPCs that are simply forgettable, with nothing that stands out and makes you wish to see them again in a future game (like Mister Torgue) and the ending is pretty much nonexistant.
The bosses are extremely easy and boring as well. I think the only boss that made me somewhat stay on my toes, was the penultimate boss, but even so, he was still pretty easy.
They even managed to screw with the soundtrack this time around. Good lord, that combat theme in the Blastlands was driving me nuts, to the point I just had to mute it!
Oh yeah, and once again, no new weapon skins were added to the game… only maybe a new ECHO skin and more stupid room decoration that you won’t even bother to interact with, unless you’re really boring and have nothing else to do.
Overall, I rate this DLC 4/10 and I’m actually very worried how the last DLC from the Season Pass will turn out right now…
