I was shocked by this DLC. It acts more like an episode, or even a short full game. I had no idea. Wish I got it sooner.
It took me approximately 7 hours to finish, but many modern full games can be won in an afternoon.
I didn't get this when it was first released. I thought it would be just a few more levels/quest/objectives. I had no idea that it would have a whole new story, new characters, new Big Daddies, new Plasmids, a new weapon, and new Splicers.
Good story with a Twilight Zone-ish twist right at the end.
Good difficulty. I found myself respawning a few times.
It is much more fast pace than Bioshock 1 or 2.
For much of the gameplay, you WILL be defending a Little Sister as she gathers 'Adam' for you.
If you don't like that, then you shouldn't get Bioshock 2, or this DLC.
Their is a minigame called "Spitfire". I didn't care for it, but you don't have to play it, and it is always fun to have a game within a game.
Controls and Graphics have not changed from Bioshock 2, although, the texture pop-ins are not at all as bad as they were in Bioshock 2.
Love 'em or hate 'em, you do have a couple Big Sister battles if you follow through with all of the Little Sisters.
This feels like it should be considered an episode. I, myself, am a fan of episodic gaming.
•Shorter games, •at lower prices, •released more frequently.
Ultimately, if you loved Bioshock 2, you'll love this too.
