It's shite. Not a patch on the main game. Achievements are hard as hell too. Trial's just don't fit this game in my opinion. A lot of people here share this opinion but some like them. Just don't expect anything close to the goodness of the main game and you might get some pleasure out of them. Me, I'd rather eat glass than play any more of it.

I totally agree with ponypo. This DLC is not what made Dishonored so good. This is just repetitive and luck-based half the time. I would avoid it.

These achievements are probably some of the toughest, most rage-inducing ones I have ever done. Some of the challenges are pretty fun, such as Bend Time Massacre, but then some are completely luck based. Too many random elements, which I believe was the developer's intention to add playability only leads to frustration. This is a step in the wrong direction for the game, but there were some enjoyable moments.

It was a step in the right direction to make the challenges/Achievements hard... However it was a step in the wrong direction to make some of them so hard people wont even bother trying/They just ragequit. They'll likely learn since sales for the DLC seem to be pretty low even though its only $5

My god, the achievement in this DLC are tough! The DLC is fun and has a new twist to the game, but its not story related. There will be two more coming out in the future and I hope they are a lot better than the latest one.

I also hope so and I have high hopes for them. I'll probably pick them up when I can.

Looks like you guys have sold me on this DLC. Reverse psychology I guess. Arkane love you.

Ugh. I shouldn't have read this.

I already despise trial stuff like this and now I don't even wanna try the fucking things... :/

Especially because it's incongruous with the game in general and I'm much more interested in the DLC Arkane teased about that'll follow Daud.

This might be the first DLC I have bought and completely bailed on. I spent an entire evening just on Burglar, normal and expert. What a waste of fucking time.

Yeah, I don't think I've met anyone who actually likes the DLC, especially the achievements.

Honestly, I thought it was pretty good. For only 400 Microsoft Points you get a good variety of fun challenges that test your ability in combat, stealth, and puzzles. The atmosphere of each challenge is also aesthetically pleasing and you could tell they put a lot of work into it.

However, the achievements are arduous and require lots and lots of dedication, skill, and luck.

I have been in 2 minds about whether to get this dlc, on the one hand I really enjoyed the game but on the other I think it finished nicely and don't really understand how dlc would fit into the story. I think I will probably give it a miss after reading some of the comments in this thread.

Cannot believe all the hate for this DLC. Seriously. Have NONE of you played Mirror's Edge? Portal? Or any game that puts your ability to master it to the test? These trials are basically on par with the trials from those games. And personally, I think they're great. These are what achievements are meant to be: work.

I'm not even close to completing them. And it's entirely likely that I may never. But all of you pissing and moaning about how terrible this content is need to drink a tall glass of shut the fuck up.

This content is incredibly well done from a technical standpoint. Hell, just playing through each level gives you an idea of how much effort went into it. Yet all most of you are doing is fucking trashing it as garbage because of the achievements??? Fuck that. I'll take a challenge any day of the week over a freebie where achievements are concerned. Especially when the content they're coming from is this well done.

And at 400 points? This content is a steal for what it offers in terms of variety and replay. Unless you're an achievement whore that doesn't actually like working for you achievements, apparently...

So glad I didn't bother even looking in this sub-forum until after I'd purchased the content. It's filled with nothing but bullshit, sprinkled with the occasional helpful post.

There is a difference between a challenge and complete luck. Most of these "trails" would be much easier if luck didn't play a huge part in them. You have Bonfires where the order that the beams spawn is completely random, so if they spawn too far away from each other you have no chance. Train Runner on Expert spawns you with a RANDOM amount of mana at the start. The "By My Hand Alone" achievement is based purely on what enemies spawn and where they spawn.

Although I will admit that SOME (not all) of the trials were somewhat enjoyable. Kill Chain and Bend Time Massacre were fine. Both Burglar and Mystery Foe were fine. It was really the combat and mobility trails that sucked.

The Pumpkin King - It would seem that you have not understood people's frustration with the DLC.

As fat turkey has stated its the fact that the majority of these achievements rely heavily on luck, not skill. In fact when you do get the luck these achievements aren't massively difficult. For instance for the daredevil achievement when i actually got the luck with the spawns of the beams of light i got the achievement with over 50 seconds left on the clock, however i must of had at least 100 attempts at this!

I'm all for difficult achievements and would have much preferred for the achievement to be very difficult with no luck required. So perhaps it could have been reaching 100k score but the beams of light were consistent, this would have been difficult but at least i knew it was down to my skill and abilities which would be much easier to live with!

The DLC also has the worst achievements ever. I probably played the DLC for 20 hours to get rid of all the achievements while it probably took me 15 hours to get all the achievements for the main game. It was all based on luck which is why it suck so much... awful stuff.
