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

by Myrthos, 2012-11-21 22:54:04

Here is an overview of reviews for the recently released DLC for Borderlands 2, Mr. Torgue's Campaign of Carnage.

  • Crave Online, 8.5
    Overall, I enjoyed this DLC but have some concerns about the uneven difficulty. For a game that normally does such a great job giving players a heads-up when tackling an enemy beyond their skillset, it's disappointing to run into this brick wall. Fortunately, the storytelling and several hours of new gameplay make this a must buy for anyone who’s finished the main storyline of Borderlands 2. For the rest of you, what the hell is taking you so long - finish the game, dammit!
  • DealSpawn, 7
    The biggest problem with Mr. Torgue's Campaign Of Carnage is that it doesn't make the most of its setting. The idea of actually participating in a tournament was interesting but underused. Motorbikes plague your every step... but why can't we drive one? As mentioned, the amount of genuinely new content is fairly small and the uninspired environments usually fail to impress. Captain Scarlett And Her Pirate's Booty arguably spoiled us with its sense of adventure, grand scale, new enemies and hovercraft, making the latest DLC pack feel just a little bit limp.
  • Coin-Op.tv
    Mr. Torgue’s Campaign of Carnage provides plenty of the signature over-the-top action and personality that fans have come to love and expect in the series, adding about 6-8 hours total gameplay in this single content pack. This DLC is a far cry from the Mad Moxxi content it will inevitably be compared to, with far more interesting characters and bosses to battle. Featuring the improved narrative quality of Borderlands 2 as compared to its predecessor, Mr. Torgue’s is a welcome treat for fans of the series that should not be missed.
  • Gamer Euphoria, 9
    Mr Torgue’s Campaign of Carnage is exactly as the title says; absolute and utter carnage. This new DLC from Gearbox brings back everything that made Borderlands 2 what it was but ramps it up into a crazy explosive frenzy of guts and glory. The writing is, as ever, hilariously off the wall and sometimes makes you question the sanity of the developers and writers. If you loved Borderlands 2 you’ll not want to miss out on this DLC.
  • Kotaku
    Mr. Torgue's Campaign of Carnage could've used the new vehicle it dangled in front of your nose. It could've used a new game mode. It could definitely have done with better loot, because even the vault's burst of new weapons didn't match up with what I already had in my inventory, a scenario that will likely be similar for many of you who have already dug lots of hours into the game. But even with the glaring omissions, it's hard to argue with the super burly dude who has a penchant for inserting curse words into practically every syllable. Seriously, don't argue with him. He yells a lot.
  • IGN, 9.2
    If you want to know what Borderlands 2 is all about, Campaign of Carnage is the perfect crash course. It takes the satisfying shooting action, the well-tuned loot hunt, and the inimitable character of the core game, amps it up, and beams it straight into your brain without ever stopping to breathe
