BORDERLANDS DLC - THE ZOMBIE ISLAND OF DR NED REVIEW
The first batch of downloadable content for the hit game Borderlands featuring zombies galore!

Posted by PlayDevil.com Staff on Feb 8, 2010 14:36 (Feb 8, 2010 14:36)

Gameplay:
 
The first thing that stands out is that this expansion can be accessed at any point during the main campaign simply by visiting one of the fast travel points found throughout the game. By using this method you are instantly transported to Jakobs Cove and the real beauty is that you can do this as often as you like without disturbing the main quest.
 
Like the full game there are a wide range of missions to be tackled which certainly adds longevity and it would be fair to say that Jakobs Cove is pretty sizable to explore which makes it even better value for what is essentially a cheap price.
 
As you progress you will find that there are countless enemies to battle against and these attack with a nice regularity to keep the action pretty intense however it would be fair to add that if you try and tackle this new island with a character that has been levelled up to a pretty high standard then this can be slightly on the easy side.

Unlike the main campaign this new island seems to contain no vehicles to assist you. Whilst this may disappoint some it does add a nice amount of run and gun and whilst this may lack the intensity of the Left4Dead games it is still pretty good thanks to the well presented and tense environments.
 
It is clearly obvious from the outset that The zombie island of Dr Ned is very similar to the main game in that it simply designed to entertain with some excellent gameplay which neverintedns to take itself to seriously. There are not too many games currently available that strike a good balance between both and Borderlands and this additional content is one that most certainly does.
 
Multiplayer:
 
Undoubtedly one of the most successful aspects of Borderlands is the multiplayer and you will be pleased to hear that this new expansion also supports the excellent co-operative play.

Obviously with the main focus being on zombie blasting action it is bound to draw comparisons to Left4Dead 2 and whilst the multiplayer in Borderlands does not rely as much on working together in intense situations it is still a very enjoyable experience which gamers everywhere should at least try and I guarantee that you will almost certainly enjoy what you are playing.
 
Conclusion:
 
To sum up, Borderlands' first DLC "The Zombie Island Of Dr Ned" offers a nice diverse new territory to explore and whilst there are only slight gameplay differences the action does not offer as much variety as the main quest however for 800ms points I would highly recommend downloading this expansion as it is certain to offer plenty of fun to the already excellent Borderlands experience.
 
 
 
Pros:
 
+ A beautifully presented game
+ Offers more content to the already excellent Borderlands
+ Nicely animated environments
+ Can be accessed at any point without disturbing the main quest
+ Good value for money
 
 
 
Cons:
 
- Some gameplay differences from the main game
- Can be on the easy side with a levelled up character
- Not much story
