So this DLC has me a little conflicted. I found the story line to be interesting and the length of it felt meatier then the previous ones released to that date. However the biggest thing that bugged me was immersion related. This side quest/DLC is about your antagonist for the game: Amaru. That’s actually why I think i enjoyed it and felt it was interesting to explore. HOWEVER, because this quest is related to Amaru, its very weird to do this quest after you’ve already beaten the main quest like me. Talking to a man you killed hours earlier is a bit jarring. I almost wish the game would only let you complete this dlc if you haven’t beaten the game yet on that file. I would have easily replayed the game just to do this (SotTR is already very re-playable). The gear you get from this DLC i think are also on the more useful side.
