After attempting to play Borderlands 2 : Mr. Torgue’s Campaign of Carnage solo and at quite a low level, I decided to quit as I was getting my arse handed to me to often. Almost a year later I’ve been able to revisit the DLC at a lot higher level, and in coop, making it a lot more enjoyable. Now I know Borderlands is a four player coop game that you can solo if you want, however doing won’t be as fun.
This section of the game is starts in the Badass Crater of Badassitude where you need to work your way up the leader board to eventually become the number one ranked badass. To be fair, the storyline is pretty weak, kill things, until you’re able to kill bigger things, and move up the ranks. The humour however takes this DLC from what could potentially be a grind fest to an extremely funny, quotable game. Throughout the game you have Mr. Torgue doing WWE style announcement, and some hilarious, action packed, quotable statements.
The DLC spans over 7 different locations, however most of which are arena style battles. We do have the many familiar character making an appearance, including Scooter, Moxxi, Tiny Tina, and Sir Hammerlock.
Although the DLC took us a little over five hours, there are still a few missions to do once we finally hit level fifty.
All in all, not bad, and due to the arena style battles, I would defiantly suggest playing in coop, as this made it a lot more enjoyable.
