Worth it?

I've heard that overall the DLC is good, however the main complaint I've seen is that it's a bit on the short side.

I was already unsure if I would get this on release or wait for a sale, so hearing some opnions and thoughts would be appreciated.

I'm definitely not satisfied with having paid 800 points for it. Like a said in a previous thread, the dlc ends and you're pretty much at the same spot you were at the end of the campaign. No new information, no hints at a sequel. Nothin'.

Well from both of those reviews it sounds like it's not bad but the price is a bit steep for what you get.

From everything I am reading and the reviews it sounds like it's fun and all, but too short and not really fulfilling story wise.

I'll wait till it goes on sale myself.

Ye I think I'll do the same, I've still got a lot to do in the main game so I can hold off for a sale.

Thanks for the links as well as your own opinions guys.

It seems to be 50/50 with the reviews.

Games radar said buy it...oxm says 6/10 disappointing
IGN 9/10 amazing...Kotaku hated it

Reviews are opinions and I take a lot of gamesite reviews with a grain of salt seeing as most original things are "meh" while the newest COD is the next must have game to end all games.

I was excited for this dlc and will probably get it after work tonight.
Just a little on edge because it doesn't appear to really add anything else onto the AC storyarch other than a bit of clean up.

So you that have the dlc what say you? I value your opinions over that of douches like Greg Miller or Adam Sessler.

I see that KennyJive didn't like it, but anyone else?
If you liked it but had a chance to do it over again would it be something you could wait for?

I loved AA and AC, so like I said before I'll probably just cough up the 800msp tonight regardless.

For me it was definitely worth it to complete the 1500 .

And come on!? 800 MSP worth 250 with easy achievements, no combat challenges. Hell of worth it.

I enjoyed it alot it's totally worth the 800 Microsoft points with really easy achievements sure it's a lil short but it's really fun and as far as hints to the next arkham all I know is *SPOILER* Harley had a false positive pregnancy test so no joker baby in the next arkham.

I know this is called Xbox360Achievements.org, but I buy my games and DLC for the... gameplay, you know? Like we did before 360 came along.

I don't weigh $10 by how many achievements I get or how much score they provide. I base it on length and potential enjoyment.

If this was 5 hours long and tons of fun, I'd drop $10 on it even if it had half the achievements/score or even none.

And if I was going by achievements, there are games/DLC for less with the same score or more.

I got 7-ish hours of enjoyment out of the story mode in Alan Wake's American Nightmare, and another 3 or so finishing the Arcade Mode 100% (even though there's no achievement for actually getting 3 Stars for all of the maps), 12 achievements and 200 GS. That was only $5 more than this. 50 less points, sure, but more time and achievements.

In any case, I'm excited for this, but I will wait it out for a while. Not because of price, though. I have other games to be playing, and I am working on the Challenge Maps (which, I happen to enjoy thoroughly, and only bought BECAUSE I enjoy them). I don't even want to play Harley's Revenge until I sit down and replay Arkham Asylum and City back to back (still need to play AA on Hard and AC on New Game+; Plan to do those together, and then play this). It would be a waste to blow $10 on it now and then find that by the time I finally get to playing it, it is on sale for $5.

It is short, and there are only 30 balloons to keep you interested while playing through it (as opposed to balloons, cameras, riddles, and trophies).

I enjoyed playing it but it was not 2 hours of Arkham City, its 2 hours. By that I mean you could get sidetracked and turn what should have only taken you 2 hours into 4 or 5 hours in the main game by doing side missions or looking for trophies/riddles, here your only option is play the story and pop some balloons.

I really think they should have included a new map or 2 for the challenges for 800 MSP, this probably should have been around 560 MSP as it is.

For 10 bucks I was hoping for something more even a little more to the ending would have made me happy, you beat it and nothing happens. So if you can wait till it goes on sale by all means do so I wish I did.

The balloons weren't even that fun, more of a nuisance. I had to play three times to find them all. Probably the most effort I've put into a cheev since the Riddler cheevs.

I bought and completed this DLC in one sitting and while it was nice to get back to the story instead of just more challenge maps, it is not worth the price. The addition of the Harley balloons was a nice try to extend the play time, but most of them are right in front of your face and impossible to miss...

Other than that, I have to say the biggest disappointment was the ending. I won't spoil anything for those of you who have not played or completed it yet, but I was hoping for something more than what I got... Not even much... Just something...

...sigh

It seems a majority thought this would be a 6 hour DLC and lead up to the next Batman game which probably won't be out for a long time. The triailers and even Rocksteady said this was about a 2 hour campaign and taking place 6 months after the events of game. You could tell from the achievements before hand that it was 4 chapters. It was fun and entertaining and I've paid more for a lot worse than this. If your a fan of the game then I would suggest buying it. Rocksteady has given us 2 great games so I don't mind paying $10 to them.

I'd wait for a sale and I love Batman. The story doesn't add a whole lot that you didn't all ready know. I think its over priced for what it is. They should have added some new costumes or avatar awards or something for the price it was. I think 560 would have been an ok price.
It was difficult for me because I forgot how to play the game and spent the first 30 minutes trying to remember how to KO dudes that were stunned on the ground. I died like three times and still beat the game in under 2 hours. I'll probably wait until the next game comes out to mop up the balloon achievements i missed.

Playing as Robin was awesome, but the fun was diluted by being forced to be Batman for half the story, I was hoping to play as Robin for the solid two hours. I give it a 6.5/10.

PASS! unless you are a crazy gamerscore whore, i guess.

I liked it, although it may be because I haven't played the game for a long time and it was a nice refresher from the repetitive campaign challenges.

The ending, however, was a bit disappointing. Not being able to free-roam with Robin was also lame.

I keep reading 50/50 good and bad, so for now, I'm passing on it. I just need to start the game. I've had it for MONTHS and haven't played it yet.
