Downloadable content is a great way of expanding a game, but it's not always worth it. Rocksteady's latest DLC however, is. Harley Quinn's Revenge is a neat piece of content that fits in well with the main story. It offers an additional two hours of story-driven gameplay, and for just 800MP, it's a very satisfying expansion for your money.
Harley Quinn's Revenge takes place a few weeks after the events of the main story. So it does contain spoilers for those not finished it yet, or started it for that matter. Harley is now leading here own gang of suicidal thugs, and she's got a bone to pick with Batman. Here plan is simple, get revenge on the Dark Knight. The story does well in cleaning up a few lose ends in the main game, and it fits in very nicely.
What's special about the content is that you don't just play as Batman, but Robin aswell. This is the first time Robin has been introduced into a story-driven element. If you already own the Robin challenge packs, there's nothing new that Robin offers. But if you don't already own the Robin DLC, Robin will be a very big surprise. He handles similar to Batman, although he has his own set of skills. He carries a metal sheil that can be used to deflect bullets. He can also zip-line into enemies and whack them with it. It's all what's on offer in the challenge maps, but Robin also gets to use the detective vision from Batman. Playing as both Batman and Robin, it offers a nice contrast in gameplay, and keeps it exciting and fresh.
The two hour gameplay is closely matching how great the single-player story is. Although, it does go over the same ground. You will find clues, attack some enemies, etc. It's the same type of stuff that was available in the main game. Whilst the DLC isn't bad at all means, it would have been nice to see something entirely new. Apart from that, Harley Quinn's Revenge is still a great package for the price. It's a nice follow-up from the story, and Robin is a welcoming addition.
