Why Is Borderlands 2′s DLC So Poor?

So the DLC on the original Borderlands had a lot of us hooked, but why does the DLC for the sequel suck when compared to it? (Borderlands 2, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

I agree the DLC hasnt been as good as Borderlands 1, but how can the writer be serious stating that the Torgue DLC is "generic"

You can have whatever opinions you want about the DLC, the series, whatever, but the franchise and the DLC are most definitely not generic

It just felt like, run forwards, shoot, run forward, shoot. Just like a Call of Duty game. I also beat it in less than what 3 hours?

Borderlands 2's DLC is definitely in the generic and copy / paste category. Don't be delusional. The quality of it has dropped since the first game.

kinda like Gearbox is showing a big middle finger to those with the season pass, isn't it?

I agree that all the comments that the DLC hasn't been up to standard. And you're right, 3 hour DLC is not good enough

I'm just a little stumped when i hear people referring to it as generic, the art style, the humour makes it instantly stand out from anything else out there these days

Used up all the goodness making the main game. Works out great for me since I believe DLC is the devil incarnate.

Level cap. There's nothing to work for beyond getting through the story. I too played the first two DLCs and was fairly bored with it. I don't think I'm using anything more than maybe one shotgun from the first DLC.

Something some developers seemed to have forgotten lately. Reward. Some games don't seem to have been balanced very well. I hit the cap way too early on the 2nd playthrough. No more levels, no new skills, and no more new higher leveled weapons. I already played through the game once, so I know the story already. There's no reward.

It bothers me that they want to wait until March to raise the cap. By then we'll probably get the 4th DLC pack.

No new level cap is definitely my main reason for not buying any DLC, though from what I've heard it hasn't been great DLC anyway. They should have included new characters with each DLC if they weren't gonna raise the cap.

I'm pretty sure they were looking to bump up the level cap with the next DLC... don't hold me to that though, it's what i've heard

Probably because the DLC is not made by Gearbox. They farmed the DLC out to two other developers.

I wouldn't say it's been bad - It just could have been so much better. Although I will wait for Hammerlocks DLC to go on sale on PSN sometime in the future.

At least you guys didn't get suckered into buying the season pass. I beat the game and haven't touched it since. It didn't feel like Borderlands to me. I hate the weapons and the new characters.. and the maps are awful...

I thought the main game was better than the original in pretty much every way possible, but the DLC hasn't appealed to me enough to buy it yet, mainly because of the level cap.

The liars at Gearbox claimed Knoxx would be the baseline for all the DLC. So far none of the 3 have even come close to touching Knoxx, let alone surpassing it.

BL1 - 3/4 DLC were good.
BL2 - 1/3 have been good.

I bought the season pass for BL2 based on their track record for BL1. Feel like I got mugged. Never again.

Haven't played any of the dlc or even picked it back up in 2 or 3 months, it doesn't feel as good as part 1. Or they thought everyone would always want to play online coop with it and no one would play it solo.

Alot of the changes to the weapons/shields lack of protection and laughable below 30 inventory slots, make the game less enjoyable than part 1 to me.

I think the dlc is being pushed out too quickly, we are 4 going on 5 months since release and we are at 3 separate campaign dlcs. They will be at 12 at this rate, when the goty edition hits if not higher.

I don't know if this is them trying to justify the season pass to buyers or what. I bought the goty's of fallout 3, nv, borderlands 1 and i'll likely get skyrims goty, some of us don't have to have everything immediately.

I would rather wait 4 or 5 months for 1 quality dlc than get 3 okay dlcs in the same time frame.
