I wasn’t a fan of the previous story DLC, “Nightmare in North Point,” which I thought had great visuals but not much of a story. It also stood apart from the main game, it just felt a bit out of place. (But it was cheap, and maybe worth the few bucks to spend if you really like the game!)
However, the latest story DLC, “The Zodiac Tournament” is a great bit of fun. It slots into the middle of the game, I guess, but it also serves as a nice little extra story at the end of the game, if, like me, you’ve already finished the story.
Here’s the official blurb:
Invited to an exclusive combat tournament on a hidden island off the coast of Hong Kong, Wei Shen faces the ultimate test of his mastery of martial arts, taking on the world’s greatest warriors in a fight… to the death. Set on the remote Zodiac Island, a crumbling temple complex plays host to a series of ancient arenas, each more complex and deadly than the last. Avoiding deadly fire pits or spike-clad ceilings are merely a distraction when up against a collection of cold-blooded killers from every discipline of close-quarters combat. Wei must utilise his full move set, combined with a few new ones picked up on the way, to defeat all that stand in his way and take-out the island’s big boss.
Aside from the preorder bonuses, I’ve only been buying the story DLC, as I’m not really interested in more races or costumes. I’m hoping that we can get another episode or two that’s as good as Zodiac.
