I am a meat popsicle
- Oct 24, 2013
From what I've played, I don't think the vanilla game is shortchanged in any way. It is a multiplayer title, but you can play it offline as well with bots, so that's a good way to learn.Lightknight said:My problem is more in feeling like I'm buying a game piecemeal rather than getting the full game that I would have before DLC was a thing.
I absolutely don't mind DLC for full games. But titles like Destiny have just ruined the notion of building a game for DLC like these studios are doing.
Do you feel like this was a full game or would you even really know since you've only had a limited time to review it? I'm betting few people knew that Destiny was as short as it was by the time they put a review up. Or, since this is basically a multi-player title only I guess this would be easier to ascertain the "fullness" of. Do you feel like there is enough meat on the bones to warrant buying it in vanilla form or is this a game to wait for one winter's eve where I find it on sale along with a DLC bundle?
*Sigh* I just wish I could pay for a thing and get the thing. Game + ALL DLC and it not be $200.
I don't think you're going to "need" any of the DLC to enjoy the game to its fullest. I spent something like 40 hours playing during the press preview without the DLC characters, and never felt like it was lacking. That said, it depends on you. Some people want all the add-ons and characters, and if you're one of those, you should probably wait for the inevitable "Game of the Year" (or whatever) edition that packs everything in.
It's as much a full game as Left 4 Dead was, and maybe a bit more, since the Evacuation mode changes things up so much.
