Is the DLC worth it?

Hi I'm thinking about buying all of the DLC for this game, and I'm wondering if it's worth it.

Help me to decide!

Whether the DLC is worth it or not is up to the individual.

The Season Pass is generally considered the must have. Its got the 3 main DLC in it and a little bonus. The rest are just dress up sets or a new weapon here and there, and can be easily skipped.

If you already own the base game and are buying things seperately, keep an eye out for bundles like the Purple Ops pack (includes spec ops vehicle, steelport gangs, explosive combat and the third warrior dlc in one package at a lower cost than they are individually).

If you don't own the game yet and want the dlc, just buy the Full Package. No matter what you do keep in mind that the Steam Christmas/New Years sale is coming up shortly, so if you want the best bang for your buck that would be the time to make any purchases.

Note: There are two DLC that you should avoid, the Unlockable pack and the Bloodsucker pack. The Unlockable pack just GIVES you everything and instantly conquers a portion of the map, and the Bloodsucker pack gives you a neck bite move that replaces the usual neck snap (with no way to turn it off other than using a mod).

The Unlockable and Bloodsucker packs annoyed so many customers and caused so much trouble that they aren't included in the Full Package deal.

I agree. Other than that I eneded up buying the rest during the sale. The Z pack was that last DLC I bought. At $0.49 I figured what the heck. Great game and I might as well get it all.

But the 3 DLC that adds actual game play are,

Gangstas In Space
The Trouble with Clones
Genki Bowl


Should be at least 50% off in the next sale?

Yeah I'd even guess at 75%.

Some DLC is actually 50% off right now on the THQ Store (Not sure if all regions though)

The Season Pass and 4 of the minor DLC are available. Gangstas In Space, The Trouble with Clones and Genki Bowl are available separately too.

Yeah 75%. I 'm sure it will be a daily if not a flash sale as well if they have that again.

Get the Season pass in the Steam sale for 75% off. That includes all mission packs but none of the costumes and cheats no one needs.

You also get the Nyte Blayde Pack in that.
And who says you don't need the Shark Gun?
