This DLC is really a Love it or Hate it Campaign and unfortunately it falls into the latter for me. I can really see why this dlc can get a lot of respect but i'm going to try weigh out the pros and cons.
Pros -The atmosphere is fantastic set in a dark city of the damned. -The end game loot supply is worth roughly 36k Caps in gold bars. - Really stands out in terms of difficulty in comparison to all other dlcs fallout has to offer (More so in Hardcore mode as your health fades away after certain times spent outside near smog. - Managing to trap Father Elijah in the vault never loses its charm.
Cons - Really horrible side characters seemed designed just to♥♥♥♥♥♥you off and with no real care that you're all going to die. - The city is really nice but then becomes a giant track around and you just end up mindlessly wandering back and forth. - The added stealth sections just get randomly thrown in and the constant destroying of Collar Alarms just becomes a grind in mashing the Quicksave button running out looking for them and repeating the process if you die - Practically no change in enemies in the entire game (As soon as you get a bear trap fist the game may as well roll the credits as any Ghost that tries to attack you will be f*cked all the way to Narnia) - The games pace is incredibly off putting when one mistake will practically destroy any element of stealth for the next 5 minutes when you're just retard fisticuffing your way through the enemies. - Father Elijah sounds as interesting as a History Teacher with an addiction to Sleeping tablets.
Although a bold change for the series, Dead Money was a dissapointment to myself. Again it seems to be a love it or hate DLC but if you want a change from the regular play style it's definetly worth it.
Although the game style is incredibly unique set in a dark tribal style arena, The area is heavily let down by the following. -The story is very lackluster and doesnt have the Borderlands style charm which was so heavy to the previous and future dlc's -The final bossfight is an absolute joke and flat out not fun in any way. -The enemies are incredibly cheap with upgraded Witch Doctors constantly fully healing surrounding enemies as well as the hitboxes for savages being incredibly broken. -The new vehicle handles as smoothly as going from 5th gear to reverse and back -Only one farmable weapon in the game which is worth anything being the 'Rough Rider' shield the rest of the weapons are all gimmicky 'Hammerlock' feel weapons being bolt action or incredibly slow fire rate Jakobs brand weapons. In the OP levels where enemy health regens and you need a constant damage over second effect to kill enemies it makes these weapons Obsolete. -The easter egg Raid Boss Dexiduo can be spawned in by running around the map finding 4 furnaces in which you spend 25ish eridian each time to spawn him in, Is an incredibly annoying boss to fight and you get absolutely nothing worthless if you kill him (This can be changed by downloading youtuber 'craig's Borderlands 2 Community Patch in which case he can drop the Lady Fist pistol. -While the area is a nice change the map is quite large and at times requires a lot of running with a whole lot of nothing to kill making the long treks boring. -The 'Twister' shotgun is a fairly decent weapon however the method in getting one is incredibly boring and tedious. (In total you have less than a 2% chance each time you quit and rejoin farming the Omnd-Omnd-Ohk mini boss which is a fully leveled up Savage enemy to even make him spawn and even then it isnt a guarenteed drop) -The raid boss Voracidious The Invincible is the most annoying and cheap boss Borderlands has ever seen, Add in that a poor loot pool makes fighting/farming him practically worthless
As for positives i can really only give a few which is a shame as Borderlands 2 is one of my favourite games of all time.
-The Interfacer is a beast of a shotgun but is the Seraph Vendors weapon so only Seraph Crystal farming there. -Kind of funny to watch snowflakes on the internet cry racism at this DLC due to the 'Savage' enemy not that it's in the games favour but it should take all the positives it gets at this point. -Is pretty fun to Rocket/Grenade jump around the map as the skybox and clipping is incredibly wonky yet again not really a point in it's favour.
At time of writing Borderlands 2 Game Of The Year is on sale until July 6th for 17$ And is worth every penny. However if you own some dlc's you can skip out on this one as you are missing out on absolutely nothing of value.
GTA 5 will probably go down in history as one of the greatest games of all time. But there is a hell of a lot wrong with it. Getting the obvious out of the way first the anti cheat is a complete and utter joke constantly banning players who get money given to them without them wanting to and not banning the cheaters (Great move there you mongs) Rockstar promised single player DLC and to nobodies surprise they backed down on it for no reason -You get microcharged out of the♥♥♥♥♥♥ But my main complaint is how horrible the story is. All 3 protagonists are the most unlikable tools of all time. Franklin is just a ♥♥♥♥♥ who follows on everyones comment. Michael is just a hypocritical grumpy hate ridden tool and Trevor is just a nod to what GTA's core fanbase is a raven pack of dog♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥freaks. As for the story it's as generic as they get with the only positive points being the Heist missions.
Honestly Rockstar after everything you have earnt from GTA 5 you could help out your fanbase some more and stop dicking them over. (Also public lobbies online are all 12 year olds screaming N*gger so that's fun)

Eh what's there really to say apart from the Story and atmosphere is really good but probably has the most repetitive gameplay in years. fun for the first few hours but f*ck me the gameplay really does drag on
