Borderlands 2 - Mr. Torgue's Campaign of Carnage DLC Review Roundup #2

Here is a next overview of reviews for the Borderlands 2 DLC Mr. Torgue's Campaign of Carnage.
- Gamer Syndrome, 7.5
Mr Torgue’s Campaign of Carnage was overall a fun ride. Lasting around 5-6 hours, you get exactly what you expect: an arena with boss battles and a few quests. From a gameplay point of view it’s the Borderlands we all love, so no problems here: my only gripes were with the repetitive subquests and the sudden difficulty spikes. If you loved Borderlands 2 you must get this new DLC, if you feel kinda burned out on the game I recommend waiting a bit before getting this DLC: all the shooting included may worsen you Borderlands sickness.
- GameReactor, 8
In the end, it is easy to recommend Mr. Torgue's Campaign of Carnage to all Borderlands 2 owners. This is a fully-stocked expansion that differs radically from Captain Scarlett's, even if it skimps on the good humour we're used to by now. It's well worth paying a visit as Gearbox continue to prove that they best understand how DLC should look, function and cost.
"Mr. Torgue's Campaign of Carnage" promise 8-10 more hours of gameplay for what was already one of the biggest, most replayable games of the year for only ten bucks. And it comes to gamers not merely as more quantity but more explosive action with its own distinct personality. This is how DLC is done.
- Eurogamer, 9
As with all DLC of this type, Campaign of Carnage is more like a house extension than a new build, and as such it benefits from all of the rhythms and systems of its overarching game structure: experience points, weapons and cash earned here feeding into the broader Borderlands 2 economy. As such, Gearbox has been able to focus on the narrative elements, on the characterisation, on finding the most outrageous tasks for you to perform at the behest of Mr Torgue. Lean, crafted, memorable, enriching and funny, the Campaign of Carnage is yet more evidence that nobody does post-release game expansion better than the Borderlands team. Essential.
