PC players will soon be able to discover Rise of the Tomb Raider but until then, the Xbox One version has been granted some more content with the release of the first story-driven DLC, Baba Yaga: Temple of the Witch. After completing it in less than two hours (and we were slow), we can say it is quite a disappointment, even at its price ($9.99/€9.99). While Crystal Dynamics could have pushed the hallucinogenic aspect of the DLC, there are actually very few WTF sequences (two actually). Also disappointing is the fact that the game forces you to backtrack to the Soviet Installation hub two times to loot some ingredients in an area we know by heart. The new story element isn't interesting either, with a particularly ridiculous ending (have your tissues ready). The main attraction of this DLC is the new area to explore with a new puzzle to solve, but it's not much. Note: If you intend to play the DLC, just watch the first two videos.
On the plus side
+ A new area to discover
+ A new puzzle to solve
+ Pretty good atmosphere
On the down side
- Too short
- Not much content to go with
- Story is weak
- Backtracking to the Soviet Installation twice, really?
- Very few hallucination sequences and it's a shame

Speaking of mental illness: woke up this morning to some crazy woman "protesting" on my front porch. I'm still not sure what she was protesting. Something about land management. (14 Hours ago)
