Secondly this game is ridiculously hard to just pick up and be good at. Now that those are out of the way here's some more in depth information, good and bad. The Best thing is infinite replayability to an extent, you can continue beating the game and upping the difficulty to your hearts content but you will eventually hit a wall because you reach a point where you can't grow your character in a readily available way because you max out the skill progression system. I'm also counting the difficulty as a plus because to be honest most games are made for everyone and present very minimal challenge to more hardcore gamers. The randomization of character from playthrough to playthrough is also refreshing in that the game makes it so you have to learn to play different styles and deal with different obstacles since you will most likely never get the exact same class and trait combination twice in a row. If you like 2d action platform games that are challenging this is a game you should consider. But now for the bad side. The randomization can mean that you get a character selection set that sucks and you have no option but to play one and die to get a better one. The only other really bad thing is just general bugginess, enemies spawning inside walls, enemies dropping gold inside walls, attacks hitting you when you're clearly out of range, random indestructible enemies exploding for no reason(floating spike balls), etc.
Overall, great game with a few caveats.… Expand

If you're properly equipped like this is supposedly designed for it's way too easy but if you're just average it's punishingly difficult and cheap. It is ridiculously short, I personally blazed through in less than 2 hours. The loot offerings are also simply awful, not one piece of gear acquired could hold a candle to anything I carried already. But most insulting is the lack of a level cap increase, this is insulting twofold because the experience and money is meaningless for most players at this point and the fact that the missions don't actually give you any tangible reward. In short this DLC is a massive disappointment to any player who could actually have played it without frustration.… Expand
