Borderlands 2 - Sir Hammerlock's Big Game Hunt Review

by Dhruin, 2013-01-15 11:21:33

Eurogamer reviews the latest Borderlands 2 DLC, Sir Hammerlock's Big Game Hunt, with a score of 8/10:

The storyline that unfolds is fairly compact compared to those of the previous two add-on episodes, but it's still stuffed with a series of decent boss battles, a truly stellar final joke, and an armory to raid that, for me at least, offered some of the best loot I've ever netted in a single session. (It's worth noting, incidentally, that although the narrative takes place after the end of Borderlands 2, you won't need to finish the game to access it. You will need to have at least a level 30 character to have fun, though.)

The campaign might be ever so slightly on the short side, but more than any previous DLC, this one's about the side quests. These send you racing around the game's new areas tracking down legendary creatures to kill, collecting giant eggs and even cleaning up pools of animal urine. There are a couple of bosses who come with neat gimmicks - one's bulletproof unless you turn your back on him, for example, while another has to be finished off in under a minute - and there's also a high-level monster who will require a party to take down.
