I waited until the second DLC drop before buying the "season pass".  So, I played them both at the same time.  

I was very much looking forward to getting back into Breath of the Wild.  But, the DLC just hasn't done it for me.  I think the biggest let down was the lack of any real story.  I was under the impression that we would get something story-wise in the second DLC.  And, while we did get some new quests, I don't see any real, coherent story that spans beyond each single quest.  

I do think the Hero's Path addition was cool.  I don't think it should have been locked behind a paywall though.  It allows me to see some very large chunks of the map that I never visited.  So, I've gone to some and found some new shrines.  That's been a little bit of fun.  

Anyway, I'm not impressed.  I guess for $20 total, its not too bad.  But, I feel like Nintendo took one of the best games ever made, and finished its life with mediocre content.  Not a good look, IMO.

Worth the $20 but just barely. Could have easily been free in an update.

I started a 2nd playthrough once I got the DLC (on December). Master mode has slowed me down, but so far so good. I still need to get the Master Sword for the trials, only finished 2 Divine Beasts so can't start the newest DLC, and haven't found any Gold monsters. So I'm not the best to person ask yet

I do like the enemies on flying platforms a lot.



Bet with bluedawgs: I say Switch will outsell PS4 in 2018, he says PS4 will outsell Switch. He's now permabanned, but the bet will remain in my sig.

It was fine. Master Mode sucks, as do most of the fanservice chests everywhere. However, the Trial of the Sword, the new Shrines and especially that new dungeon were really awesome.

I should add - I have not completed all of the new content.  I'm not sure if I ever will, as it just hasn't pulled my back in.  I basically have to force myself to sit down and play.  And, really, that's the crux of the problem - it just isn't very compelling content.

Play through the new dungeon and tell me again it isn't compelling.



Honestly I think Master Mode adds the most to the game. Once you are forced to use BotW's full features in a fight it gets to be really exciting. Sneak around the enemy camp putting down fire chu chu jelly, then chop some logs and put them at the top of a hill, then push ignite the chu jelly fire circle, and try not to break too many weapons. Being made to get creative is half the fun.

I'm opting against getting the DLC because the original game is complete for me.

In fairness, Blood & Wine was probably the best DLC I've ever played.
