    Great DLC add-on to a great game. It is not long, but what would one expect for $4.99? The gameplay is as taught as the full game, and I like the new protagonist, Sarah. The nailgun is inventive, and it's great fun to give another go at a new round of mutant bash tv. Definitely worth the money for a few additional hours of gameplay to an already great title.

    Great value DLC. For $5 you get a new set of missions available at the start of the game, a new gun, and more Mutant Bash TV. Not only that, but the DLC has the same-high quality graphics and gameplay that comes with the rest of the main game. In terms of price for quality, this is easily one of the best add-ons that I've downloaded.

    What a blast from the past. [March 2013, p.81]

    The Scorchers is a fine way to re-familiarise yourself and extend the run-time of this under-appreciated throwback shooter.

    It all comes down to the question, if you want more of Rage. Depending on which difficulty setting you're playing on, this is two to four hours of that for the price of about 5 euros. That's pretty decent, considering that there are full price games with just about twice as much of content out there. To surmise: a good story, if you want to call it a story, solid, fresh enemies and new corridors for you to shoot through, that are enjoyable in spite of their linearity. If that sounds like a good evenings' entertainment for you, you can't go wrong with The Scorchers.
