Borderlands ClapTrap's New Robot Revolution - Xbox 360 Live Marketplace 800 Points
Great, but a step back after Knoxx
This dlc was a lot of fun, exciting, comical, but fairly short. My friend and I co op’d through the first playthrough in roughly 10 hours. Knoxx took us maybe a good 20+ hours. The dlc is great, you fight a lot of past boss’s “anywhere from Lance leaders, to general knoxx, and other bosses”. The concept is that the ninja claptrap hates seeing how the claptraps are slaves, be abused (remember claptraps being shot and in needs of repairs) etc etc, so he wants to kill all humans, be them Lance, Raiders, Vault hunters (us) etc etc. They basically reanimate the dead humans to make them “trap” enemies. Like a raider, becomes a “raider trap”. Kinda a half cyborg type enemy. It doesn’t make them tougher or stronger, just means they are under a different command. Knoxx comes back, which the entire fight he says “please kill me, just end this” it’s all funny. The actual claptrap enemies are funny. The best way to describe them is as piranhas. One or two of them, no biggie, but they are usually strong in numbers (groups of 10-50) and that’s when you will die a lot, and get “second chance” a lot. Individually they are weak, very easy to one or two shot, but in waves, u need a lot of shots, and they dish out more bullets per second then you do in numbers. After knoxx, I expected new vehicles, or at the very least, the same vehicles from noxx. Theres a lot of open spaces that would be vehicle friendly. Sadly, there are no vehicles of any kind. There are map vehicles (aka vehicles that are just for decoration, don’t move, and you can’t use at all) such as a dump truck and some kind of mining vehicle, but that’s about it. No mechs, etc. In this aspect, I feel like they took a step backwards after knoxx, rather then forward. Don’t get me wrong it’s still a fun great dlc, but comparing to previous dlcs from borderlands, it’s not AS good.
In my opinion of the four dlc's this was the 2nd best one. It has a fantastic storyline and the end of it was funny. GO OUT AND BUY IT!!!!!!!!!
