Undertow Expansion: Path of the Elect - Out Tomorrow
Written By
View author's profile

So, we get this one for free and now they turn around and throw some DLC at us for 400MSP, thinking we'll just lap it up? Chances are, quite a few people did enjoy this one, but the whole thing seems pretty sneaky. I can guarantee they had the DLC planned when they chose this as the free game. Anyway, here's what you will get with the expansion:

  • 5 Campaign Levels (Solo or Co-Op)
  • 4 Multiplayer Maps
  • New Playable Race, the Elect
No new achievements have shown up on yet, so I'm not sure if this expansion will take advantage of some or all of the extra 50 points allotted to arcade games for DLC.

I don't think many people are going to buy it if it doesn't include new achievements.

It would be cool if this DLV had achievements then this arcade could by my first completed arcade game and my first 250 arcade game.

If there's gonna be achievemnets you will probably need to complete that story at ultra and co-op and probably something with those races.

I actually think this is a pretty good game, and a huge bonus that most of us got it for free. DLC for ANY game is a good thing, no matter how it's priced. There are so many arcade games that if they even get DLC, are long forgotten about. I'd love some new minigolf DLC for example, but what are the chances of that happening?

Any DLC is good DLC!

I wish I was a fly on the wall during the M$ meeting to decide how to 'give something back' for the horrible holiday xbl service.

I'm not against M$ making money, and maybe this was always in the works, BUT...if it looks like a duck.........

Wow, because it's so uncommon for XBLA games to have DLC that this must have been part of a scheme to screw the users by giving them the option of buying 33% more content for a game they got for free.

seems a bit cheaky to offer the game free as a apology, then expect us to pay for more content for it

If they do end up adding achievements, I'll gladly get it.
It was a free game for me anyway, so paying half the price of the game to get an expansion is pretty cool.

I think that Microsoft is just in one more way saying "We win. Again."

Personally, I'll spend my MS Points on other things.

Agreed with Ap0calyptiK. I didn't like the game. Plus, the DLC is half of the original price on the game. Didn't like it, even if it was free!

It only cost 200Mp, so it's the same price for a theme.

Could a admin fix this story to the correct price of 200MSP to stop the complaining about it being over-priced?

Please and thank you.

I really liked undertow but haven't had the chance to play it much, i'll prolli be willing to pay 200MSP for 5 extra levels =-)
