New DLC thoughts

Been playing this and have definitely noticed much better AI!

I even put it on easy just to polish off them 2 achievements and I've been having my ass handed too me for the first couple of minutes much harder than before.

Also the voices as they shout seems to be making my tv crackle even on low volume, tried external speakers as well and get the same sound. anyone else got this??

Overall I'd say it's decent, disappointed about only having 2 extra levels for each campaign though

I haven't got a chance to try it out yet. I have it downloaded, but gonna start a new game instead. I hope to come back to it soon and clean up some achievements that I missed. Playing offline was a bitch most of the time because of the AI.

Voiceacting for start cutscenes are pretty annoying. Storyline is simple. Maps look good though. Nothing amazingly new but I enjoy the UAVs. Free achievements. It just needs more I think.

I've noticed that the voices seem to crackle slightly too.

The missions were far too short in my opinion. I jumped into a random game where no one was communicating, and we still breezed through all 4 maps in under 45 minutes.

To be honest, I think the only thing that will keep people coming back to it is the achievement that requires you to level up.

The new maps are stellar, especially Founder's Tower. I haven't been wowed by a map in a long time. It starts out decent but when you get to the catwalks and scaffolding, you're zipping around and climbing at a very smooth pace. Orgasmic. The new abilites are all very nice too. Especially the UAV and the Heal Aura

Plus it's free! I mean take nfs hot pursuit as an bad example overpriced dlc. They each cost 560 and you only get a few points out of it. I have never bought 250g for free. Even the past free arcade games were only 200g. Think about that. I wish more games gave free dlc

Not even free dlc can save this game from being one of the worst of 2011, just got 2 achievements left then this pile of shit can fuck off once again.

The new maps are great, and there's much more areas to climb. I also like the UAV. The game and player movements seem much smoother now.

I am enjoying the maps but still trading this in when I get the level 24 achivement, its all I have left to do. I would of enjoyed this game alot more if the DLC was with the game when it came out, the game had so much potential aswell

Dlc corrupted my profile

Upon downloading the DLC, it said it had finished at 69% and when I entered the game it corrupted my profile :/ Researching this i found if you had not updated the game on Live then you couldnt play or something like that. I had it up to date because i had been playing it online that day. But a clean recover of the profile fixed the problem.

Did anyone else have any issues?

Better AI? Someone want to lend me their better AI teamates for a few games then as I'm stuck with the same old shitty ones from before the DLC / patch. Back online I go then.

With a single player option. People have said the AI is improved but it is still ass. Try reading my post properly next time.

I think the new maps and lvl 5 items definetly help the game, but the A.I. is still atrocious. I still had 3/4 of my squad going after a useless health command post, completely ignoring the main objective, till we fail.

Well since it is free right now, it is worth getting. As for them fixing things, the ai is still bad in the game.

Free maps and achievements were enough for me, but after playing it I did notice a significant improvement is both team and enemy AI. Not as concerned with command post and actually help you defend and attack objectives.

AI is no different for me, played one of the levels on solo easy, and they spent the whole time (as per usual) worrying about the command posts, leaving me, alone, to get the objective.

Game just sucks when playing by yourself. If you have just one friend with you, then its a blast, but otherwise it just sucks. Will be glad to trade this one is

Don't trade it in too soon, just because more DLC has yet to be announced doesn't mean it isn't coming.

OT:
I wasn't too fussed about the Labs level, too similar in style to Aquarium if you ask me.
Founders Tower on the other hand is a great map in comparison to the original ones. Much more vertical progress as I was hoping for.

The new abilities are about as good as we could have hoped, particularly the health regen unit. I have yet to use the napalm grenade but that looks effective from what I've seen so far.

The new DLC reminded me I needed to play again, went ahead and got into it with 7 friends of mine and we ended up doing the full campaign + dlc for both sides in about 6-7 hours, it's actually a ton of fun with friends and online versus.
