Borderlands The Secret Armory of General Knoxx DLC Reviews

A handful of favorable reviews for Gearbox's newly released The Secret Armory of General Knoxx addon bring us into the weekend.

GameSpot gives it a 9.0/10:
If you survive enemy encounters, then you're rewarded with loot aplenty. The quality of the weapons, shields, and mods continues to increase as your level increases (the new cap is 61), and there is even a robust new type of chest for your looting pleasure. The ratio of quality goods to vending-machine fodder remains about the same, but the new heights of quality (and elusive super-rare designation) are sure to rekindle your desire to search every last chest and cardboard box. Rekindling is what The Secret Armory of General Knoxx does best as it embraces all the elements that make Borderlands so fun and addictive. And, it will likely keep you going for at least 10 hours. Whether you've just unlocked The Vault or maxed out twice over, The Secret Armory is an excellent reason to journey back to Pandora.

IGN gives it an 8.8/10:
If you enjoyed Borderlands and still wanted more, then definitely download The Secret Armory of General Knoxx. The main story line is still a blast even if you go it alone and some of the side quests will challenge the most hardened team of Boarderlands veterans. This is by far the best of the three add-ons for the core game, and the most fun I had since I completed the main game last year.

MTV Multiplayer doesn't do the scoring thing:
"General Knoxx" feels like "More Borderlands: The Sequel to Borderlands," which is just fine. The new missions, characters, foes and landscapes bolster a piece of content that recaptures the vibe and core grind of "Borderlands." Grab it if you want to fall in love again or need to ignore your cats for a few hours.

And neither does Joystiq:
Maybe if I started the General Knoxx campaign at around 55, I wouldn't have had such a tough time, but I've completed the main game twice with this character, so I just don't understand why the difficulty is so high starting out. My advice? If you're planning on taking the trip down to T-Bone Junction, make sure you enlist a full group or kill a couple hundred Skags before you head out.
