  1. All the fun of the original squeezed into an all-action and generally more enjoyable expansion.
  2. This downloadable prologue is a bit barren, but it still packs a delightfully destructive punch.
  3. It’s worth it just to spend a little more time on Mars with some bombs and some high powered lasers, just don’t expect anything drastically new.
  4. In short, the expansion feels sort of like the modern Castlevania standby in "Richter Mode" wherein a jaunt with a new character involves a far simplified gameplay mechanic. However, the relevant thing to remember is that Demons of the Badlands not only simplifies the gameplay--but also the area it's in.

    Great fun, if a little throwaway. [Issue#184, p.85]
  6. A golden opportunity to really expand on the back story of Mars pre-Guerrilla feels tragically wasted here.

    It's short and nice but not worth the $10 price tag. Being in the prequel is good because you get to see things from a new point of view. Too bad it isn't tied into the main map as it's a standalone. I'd wait til it drops a few bucks before spending my hard earned cash on this DLC. Full Review »
