    The game still has that frantic feel that the main game had, and the lighting is still some of the most amazing effects I have seen in a game, especially during the lockdown parts when everything goes dark and only your flashlight and gunfire light up the surrounding area.

    Road of Devastation changes up the pace enough to make things fun, and as a fan of Dead Nation, for $3.99, it's hard not to recommend this add-on.

    Great DLC for a great arcade shooter. [Dec 2011, p.110]

    Another juicy, tasty and funny slice of that bloody pie called Dead Nation… especially if you're on the co-op side.

    A bit repetitive, but very challenging, cheap and absolutely worth it. Road to Devastation is a trip you'll like to take if you are fond of zombie shooters. [Nov 2011, p.97]

    Road of Devastation provides an interesting take on the endless survival formula. It's robust and there's a large scope for replayability that will appeal to those continually wanting to better their score and survival rating. There's definitely a couple of hours of fun here for everyone else, but the lack of new additions will fail to incentivise those who have already gunned-down enough zombies to last a lifetime.

    Dead Nation: Road of Devastation will only appeal to you if you love going for scores since this doesn't tie into the main game's plot.

    If you enjoyed Dead Nation and are the kind of player who wants that high score challenge, then Road of Devastation could be the perfect expansion to scratch that twin-shooter itch for you.

    Road of Devastation may not be quite as robust of an expansion to Dead Nation as fans had hoped for, but there's enough new content here to make it worth the price of admission.

    Despite the low price of this downloadable content, it isn't really worth its money. Yes, the DLC contains new enemies and weapons but they aren't special at all.
