How's the George Washington DLC?

All I've really heard about it was that it was kinda short for the price. Steam has the season pass for 50% off. Is it worth it?

I'm interested in this too.

It looks kind of crazy, maybe not to the degree Blood Dragon was but the same sort of thing.

It's not bad actually, I thought it was more entertaining than AC3 was, but yeah if that price is back to normal I would wait.

It's disappointing.

Nowhere near the production quality of the main game. Which at this point is one of the few remaining things holding up AC.

Almost all of the areas are reused, yet it manages to look graphically worse then the main game for some unfathomable reason. The voice acting lacks the direction and delivery that Ubisoft money can buy. New abilities are completely overpowered and break the game, so they're a bit fun, but make the mistake of using your health as a resource. You have to re acquire and re upgrade some you gear (granted it's fast tracked) but if you had a pimped out dude in 3 you might be disappointed. Washington comes of more as an inept mustache twirling villain rather then any real menace or threat they could have made him into with just a bit of effort. Story beats of bad shit happening for drama was hokey because they already used those same "bad shit happened" moments in the main game. The big W's pyramid is pretty cool. The DLC also ties into the main game's story surprisingly neatly.

And yes it's short for the price. It felt more like one DLC rather then 3.

So maybe wait for 75% off.

@tennmuerti: Thanks for giving an informed opinion; I probably wasn't going to buy it regardless but it was at least vaguely interesting (granted the only AC DLC I'm particularly interested in is DLC multiplayer modes).

All I know is that it cannot possibly be as good as the stand-alone Bioshock: Infinite GW enemies. Those fuckers were intimidating.

Its worth getting the season pass for the extra multiplayer maps. But the DLC is alright. The best part is flying around ad the eagle, which isn't saying much.

The half price of $15 for the season pass seems fantastic and totally worth the price.

The first and last weren't to bad. But I really disliked the second act due to having to play the parlor games for story reasons. Which I guess isn't to big of a deal, but I really dislike parlor style games in a digital format.
