Thumbs down Rip off!!

I love this game, but this downloadable content is a rip off. Two achievements are nice, but 400 ms for 15 minutes, that seems a little bit expensive to me. If you don't care about 100% completion, I wouldn't waste your money.

That's the problem, we do all care about our 100% completition, so we did all buy It!

400 points are a lot for something this short, but I really enjoyed the game so I will be buying it. I'm playing through the second time right now, and I just got back from Best Buy because I picked up the movie!

Didn't like the game overall, but I do LOVE the story and the way it's told, so I thought this would be great, but it explains NOTHING and offers 7 minutes of mind-numbing boredom with a drawn-out puzzle that reminds me a huge amount of a puzzle in DMC4.

Big rip-off, if you're hoping for more explanation into the story as to the identity of the murderer, watch Dante's Inferno: The Animated Epic, explains it all.

I think you're a bit too harsh toward this DLC (but that's just my opinion).
As far as the identity of the Muslim assassin goes... it's been revealed in the main game, it just wasn't completely straightforward.

SPOILER WARNING



When Dante had his way with the Muslim woman in Acre he thought hat her male companion was her brother (so she said), it turns out it was her husband. When Dante agreed to come through on his end of the bargain (freedom of the couple for sex) the guy left Acre in order to find Dante's woman and punish her for his actions (cause Dante, as the crusader captain/commander, was out of his reach).

Complete rip off for me seeing as i had to rent the game in order to get the 2 lousy achievements and a rubbish story and rubbish graphics (thought DLC could of have better graphics like the rest of the game!) Seeing as renting the game cost 6.25 and about 2.50 for the DLC thats nearly 10 and all I wanted was 2 achievements to keep my completetion record for this game!!

Damn you EA............to HELL!! (see what i did there!?)

Sorry, but for the new expansion that will come out in April, the trials of St-Lucia, I do think that there will be some achievements with It!

I'll pick up this DLC and rent the game again when St. Lucia comes out. Anyone know if there's more DLC after Lucia? I want to know if I should wait to rent the game so that I just have to rent it once more.

MORE SPOILERS



I thought the Muslim assassin also killed Dante. When we see the assassin's face in the final cutscene, it looks like the seducer's husband.

Good point, I forgot about that (so apparently the assassin left Acre after backstabbing Dante- he waited till the rioting started so he could get to him).

40 gs points was ridiculous and most reviews said the dlc would last an hour lol, well it was kinda fun for the 10 minutes that it took, I didn't care though because I really liked the actual game so much and anything to make me play it again was worth the 400 points, I just wish we'd gotten more for it.

Hopefully the next dlc will be a lot better.

400 MS?! Jeez... ugh I can't tell whether I'm more pissed that it costs that much, or the fact that I'm enough of a cheevo/100% whore to actually buy it.

kinda sucks that we only got an hour (hah lol I know, im talking about a really slow person on the hardest difficulty) and 40gs for 5 bucks...we probably would have got more gs wise if they werent limited to 250gs a quarter, which I hope they have that 210 ready for the trials dlc

It's EA. Did you really expect them to NOT rip you off?

Expect not to get ripped off? No. Hope not to get ripped off? Maybe.

I was a little disappointed that Dark Forest didn't really add anything to the story at all. Still, it alludes to St. Lucia, so the next DLC might do more in the story department.

I wish I'd seen this thread before I brought the dlc. Got both the achievements, but sat there thinking "was that really it?" I know it was only 400 msp, but still, done it in 15 mins? Come on!

You guys are so unbelievably pathetic!
Like holy crud you really are! It's GAMERSCORE! Since when does gamerscore even mean anything related to the quality of the game or the experience!? I only came on here to see what peoples opinions on it are, and it's only a rip off because you get 40G's. Really!?
The DLC also comes with a costume.
I guarantee you're all bitching about how they ripped you off but EA are grinning about it anyway, coz you complain yet you still go buy for gamerscore.
400 MS points for the game being extended and something to go back to is good. 400 MS points for Gamerscore is just.... pathetic really.

How is the costume that comes with this DLC? Not a big fan of Dante's normal outfit, and both the 160pts costumes available on XBL aren't much better.

There's also the matter of it costing 400MS points for 15 minutes of gameplay and a costume. When you can pay that for a decent Arcade Game and it'll last you a LOT longer. Assault Heroes for example.

Screw you dumbass! You came to xbox 360 achievements, stay with me for this one ACHIEVEMENTS forum! That means that all people here care about gamerscore, this all website is all about that. Now you don't care about it, that's cool, I respect that, but screw you when you come here and talk s*** about us! Peace!

Yeah I have to agree with the general consensus here. I don't think it was a rip off as such, as I want to complete the story, and have the full game, so I was happy to pay that for it. I was just a bit miffed with the content - a crappy magic door puzzle, and some few enemy encounters, containing the enemies that I personally hated from the main game. I wish that side of it had been better. Not too sure about Lucia, but if it has some decent achievements, I might do.

I think Lucia will be totally different. I would say it will be more expensive and have more achievements because it contains a whole Coop Multiplayer.

I think I wait for Lucia and a cheaper dark Forrest.

Honestly the biggest thing that irked me about this wasn't the achievements or the longevity of the game. Ok, maybe the length did annoy me a little, but still that's no matter. The AC2 DLC has no achievements and neither was amazingly long, didn't mind though.

The thing that Dark Forest gets me on is the fact that I paid 400MS points, and there was NO story progression at all, just a small event before the main game that doesn't even explain anything. Wasted opportunity if you ask me, I wouldn't have minded everything else if I had a nice bit of storyline advancement, but this? Nah. Terrible mistake buying it for me.

Not to mention the cutscenes were half-finished by the looks of things, no animation during the conversations between Dante and Beatrice, just a wavy effect on a still picture of Beatrice's spirit (which doesn't even get released until the main game anyway) and a convinient shot of Dante talking with his back to the camera so you can't tell his mouth isn't moving.
