Are you satisfied with BotW's DLC packs

Yes 1 100.00%

Total:1

for the price this is good. and I don't agree DLC 2 does not belong in the main story.

Releasing on the same weekend of Arms Party, Splatfest, Mario + Rabbids new mode and right after a few great games on the play. they could have waited January... but hey...



Switch!!!

I was expecting more story but $20 for roughly 18-20 additional hours of content is far from the worst deal. Some games only last that long and charge you full price for it.

TldR: A good amount of content, but none of it truly new in terms of story or gameplay mechanics. Great DLC for anyone who is about to start the game, since it adds lots of interesting things, but not too appealing for anyone like me, who has invested more than 200 hours in the game and completed almost everything in the main game.

I haven't purchased the new DLC yet, but I'm getting that sort of feeling as well. The DLC makes BotW an even greater game when viewed upon as a whole, but coming from someone who has spent 150+ hours already in the game, there isn't much here that makes me want to go out and buy it.

More than likely I will buy this DLC when I'm ready to replay through the game once more, maybe next year or the year after.

Is this new DLC that long or are you including the Trial of the Sword as well?



Finished it yesterday and overall thought it was pretty solid. The highlight is definitely the final divine beast and boss, while the worst part was having to fight the previous bosses again with barely any alteration. I was dissappointed that there was no new environments and the story didn't reveal anything new, but overall the new shrines are some of the best inthe game, the added cutscenes make the champions a little bit more relatable and, as I say before, the new dungeon and boss are great!

That being said, I do have a nagging sensation that all of this could've been in the base game

I would have loved more "replayability" in this DLC (and maybe in the base game too). Something like new minigames, new footraces, new horse races (proper races with proper competitors, not just you VS the clock), maybe a full fledged coliseum... Even If you get the motorcycle at the end (which I don't really like that much, specially when the new horse gear fits the world nd the lore way better), there's not much to do with it at this point, and driving around Hyrule without a pourpose is nice but gests unappealing quickly...

I don't know, I'm still in love with this game (GOAT along Majora's Mask for me, btw), but it keeps making me feel that it gave space for another thousand gameplay and story possibilities that will never be fully exploited, and that makes me perceive it as if it has lots of unexplored potential... Like if it could be a more complete, round experience and it will forever stay "half baked" (even if it's way more complete and full of posibilities than 99% of the games out there!).

Wait isnt all DLC essentially just things that should have been in base game but they didnt have time to implement? I mean every single DLC or expansion ive ever bought has been basically just a bit more story element like The frozen thrones or the last of us or HZD frozen thing. Not sure why you was expecting like new gameplay stuff?

Then you haven't played enough great DLC, like the Knoxx DLC for Borderlands, Dawnguard for Skyrim, Far Harbor for Fallout 4, or Old World Blues for New Vegas.  Those are my favorite types of DLC because they add so much interesting content that goes outside the bounds of the original game.

Actually, Nintendo should have copied Elder Scrolls a bit more and let Link become a vampire.



It looks like people enjoyed the DLC. Good, i'll get to it when i'm finished with XC 2.



In the wilderness we go alone with our new knowledge and strength.

Well ive played Fallout 3 DLC cant remember its name maybe the Pits or something amd yeah that didnt add any new game play just a new section and abit more story. I havent played this DLC yet though and it would off been nice to have a new enviroment to explore. Ill pick it up next week i think. Also yeah i havent played a ton of DLC cos im normally burnt out on the game by time DLC arrives

I actually feel like the amount of possibilities that can still be explored with Botw's mechanics make it all the more exciting; that as amazing as the game is, it's potentially just the tip of the iceberg in terms of what can be accomplished with its unique brand of organic interactivity and freedom, and that its successors may use the same foundations to rise to even greater heights.
