What Gamespot Users have to say about DLC Quest

  • Review Score:8.5

    DLC Quest has made its way onto XBLA and my heart...

    Short, sweet and to the point, DLC Quest is a great commentary on the state of DLC in games. The graphics themselves are cutesy-retro, and the platform-collecting/ coin seeking game play act as nods to games of ol'. Th... Read Full Review

    A very humoristic game with a retro style.

    A great satire on the gaming industry

    DLC Quest isn’t something I’d call a game, but more of a parody or satire of a game. Sure, it’s playable and enjoyable, but the writing and design of it all are meant to take a pot shot at the new menac... Read Full Review
