    If you already have the Season Pass, I would say The Forge is worth checking out. If you’re thinking of just shelling out five dollars for the game, I wouldn’t recommend it without getting the whole kit and caboodle: it’s just not enough content for what you get, although it is fun if you’re already a fan of the game. In that spirit, I’m giving it the same score that we gave the main game when it came out, because Shadow of the Tomb Raider’s The Forge isn’t going to change anyone’s mind. If, like me, you loved the gameplay and are willing to sit through a bit of sloppy writing to get to the fun within, it’s worth it. If you thought Shadow of the Tomb Raider wasn’t worth the entry ticket, I’d sit this one out. It’s all about perspective.

    The DLC has a few hidden items such as monoliths and documents. Players will be given a new outfit, a new skill, and a new gun for completing the side mission. The DLC has its own set of trophies/achievements to earn. The Forge is also unlocked as a score and time attack challenge tomb on the main menu. Overall, The Forge DLC adds some interesting story for Abby's character and a fun new challenge tomb for a small fee.

    The Forge enriches the Shadow of the Tomb Raider offer, adding a new area, a timed mode and the possibility of playing in co-op.

    It's still overpriced for what is a really boring bit of content, with a Challenge Tomb that isn't on par with some of the ones from the main adventure. It is over far too quickly, but the Time and Score Attacks and ability to tackle it through online co-op add some reasons to re-run.
