Despite its technical flaws, Dead Rising 3 was one of the best games when Microsoft's Xbox One was launched back in late November. It was no surprise then to hear that Capcom had plans for several downloadable contents, which could be purchased one by one for €10/$10 or with the game's season's pass for €30/$30. The first episode (out of four) of Untold Stories of Los Perdidos was released a few days ago so here are a couple of videos we captured. Since the DLC is pretty short, you can also read our verdict about it inside.
The Gamersyde verdict
After discovering the adventures of the soldier Adam Kane, a character you won't find particularly interesting, it is difficult not to wonder why Capcom chose this rather unremarkable single player experience as first DLC in a series of four. For starters, you can't help but get this feeling of deja vu when playing Operation Broken Eagle, not because it is set in Los Perdidos (after all Rockstar always used the same locations in their DLC and it's never been a problem), but because everything you do you've already done in the main game despite two new types of objectives. The story (though we're not sure it deserves the name) is built on a series of fetch quests which will have you slaughter tons of zombies with a new vehicle and a five new weapons. The side quests aren't really exciting either, whether you're asked to find a teammate who's turned to get his dog tag (don't expect a boss fight as these guys are just like the regular undead), or to take out illegal bases (which only consists in pressing a button to smoke the place). In short, Operation Broken Eagle offers nothing that the main game hasn't already delivered and it can't even be played with a friend. Let's hope the three other episodes will be more convincing so they eventually justify the price tag.
@Sdarts: Yup. Oh and I can't forget to mention how dark it is, and that story, real nice. The dynamic between Jackman and Stewart was superb too. (6 Hours ago)
@Moonwalker: I'm glad you enjoyed it. And yes, Wolverine in the comics was always bloody, savage and ruthless. Something the previous movies never did, probably to stay PG-13 - suitable for teens. (7 Hours ago)
@digi_matrix: Looking very forward to it. But no spoilers please. Now I know I will most likely cry at the end. (Which is never a bad thing.) (7 Hours ago)
@droezelke: No problem, in games like Edith Finch what's most important is story, characters and world settings. It's like movies or a very short TV show/mini series, gameplay isn't as important. (7 Hours ago)
Oh and I loved the violence, yep. I never liked how there was barely any blood in the previous films, impossible when you have someone like Wolverine cleaning house. This is how it's done. (7 Hours ago)
And I'm so glad I watched the previous X-men movies first, specifically the two Wolverine movies, otherwise some things wouldn't have made sense (7 Hours ago)
Logan was absolutely fantastic. In terms of acting, emotion, character development it's in a different league than the other X-men movies. Fucking loved it. And man, Jackman is a boss! (7 Hours ago)
