  • Summary: The Hot Garbage expansion includes new tools, including a jetpack, toxic deshocker, and underwater boots. The jetpack and boots, in particular, will impact how you explore the world, and it looks like this new area will have portals that the player can jump through.

    Journey to the Savage Planet’s gameplay could have benefitted from Hot Garbage’s additions if it wasn’t made to be a separate experience. Mechanics like boosted Jetpacks and Underwater Boots would have been great to use on the planet of AR-Y 26. Instead, planet DL-C1 is a self-contained add-on that provides new equipment along with new ways to use old abilities. With its low cost of entry, the value of extending some good gameplay is always a solid choice.

    If the eponymous Savage Planet is your Kindred explorer's residence, the space rock called DL-C1 is a timeshare. It's a decent little getaway -- probably worth the investment, a change of pace, and the vacation is over quicker than you'd like. But, despite what the name suggests, Hot Garbage is far from a dump.

    Hot Garbage is a nice add-on to a great game but I would have liked to see it improve on the base game rather than double down on its faults. The humor, visuals, and exploration are still just as funny, beautiful and engaging as they are in the main game. I originally reviewed the game on PS4, and in order to review the DLC on Xbox One I had to replay most of the game again. And I still had a great time doing it. While it’s brought down by an increased focus on combat, some control issues, and a lackluster antagonist, Hot Garbage is simply a lot of fun. If you enjoyed Journey to the Savage Planet, Hot Garbage is more of the same brand of journeying and savagery.

    Hot Garbage was assumed to be aimed at players who have seen the whole game by now, but it ends up playing best for those still scanning the alien world.

    I wouldn’t go as far as calling Hot Garbage, well, hot garbage. But it’s certainly not great, and it’s somewhat tarnished my otherwise excellent experience with Journey to the Savage Planet. By all means, give it a go if you’re desperate for a new area to explore – you can’t really go wrong with its £6/$8 asking price – but don’t expect too much. And be prepared to get very frustrated.

    Journey to the Savage Planet: Hot Garbage is a DLC add-on that features new places to explore, new tools and the same comedic humour that weJourney to the Savage Planet: Hot Garbage is a DLC add-on that features new places to explore, new tools and the same comedic humour that we loved from the base game with a new quirky storyline. Hot Garbage is however only a small addon, while it is a nice addition to the game the overall experience is short. Also it doesn't seem to capture the same feel as the base game did upon release but it does bring a new feel to the game and that's not a bad thing. Graphically Hot Garbage stays true with great looking enviroment and character design and exploring is still fun and not a chore. Overall: If you happen to Journey to the Savage Planet then adding this to your game is a must do. This extends your gaming experience within this stunning and crazy universe just that little bit longer. My only gripe is I wish it took lancer to complete. Expand
