This is a review of the add on pack for 2Ks fantastic Rpg shooter "Borderlands" (see my other review)
So far this add on edition is only available on the xbox 360 and PC but have been told on good faith that it will also comeout on the PS3 later this summer.
So what is it? well its basically 2 more small games added to the crazy cartoon world of Pandora.
The 1st being :
The Zombie Island Of Dr Ned -
This is the 1st add on to the game and by far the most popular of all that has been released. This add on features brand new quests, items and enemies. Also extra achievements for your xbox360 score.
The game add on is allot darker than the original title and has a real Halloween/Frankenstein feel to it. This is very exciting as the actual game was very bright and sun kissed.
They have even added updated versions of the original enemies with a Halloween spin such as WereSkags and have turned the thugs into Zombies.
The add on has opened up a new section of the existing game called "Jackobs Cove" This is a small corporation town owned by Dr Ned.
This extra is a large map to explore and even features a new opened up version of "Old Haven" from the main title
The second add on is :
Mad Moxxi's Underdome Riot - This is a totally different add on to the previous and gives you a different style of play.
In this one you play in three riot arenas . You must fight through all four arenas to complete the title. Sounds easy but its not as there is no save option during any of the arenas. And the waves of enemies come thick and fast!
if you are a fan of the original and want to add some extra life to it, then this is deffently for you. You can download each part for 800 Microsoft points, but its easier to buy it, and saves more space on your hardrive.
You can pick this up for about £11.99 now in some high street branches which is a bargain.
The graphical style seems to have improved abit since the original and has a more polished look to it.
I must say that you need the original title to play this, as this isn't a stand alone game like the new Grand theft auto games for example.
2K are not finished with the series, as there are ANOTHER 2 add ons after this, which i am sure will surface on another collection in the future.
