It's too expensive for what it is but thought I'd try it anyway. Mainly I wanted to check out the implementation and don't intend to buy such poorly featured DLC in future, so don't tell me what I already know. Unfortunately the implementation of the DLC is much worse than the intuitive system used by The Maw. Here's what I posted on the Steam forums:I wish Valve would force consistency on DLC. With The Maw it auto-downloads the content and when you right-click the game it shows an option "View downloadable content", which takes you to a DLC tab in the Properties window: http://img22.imageshack.us/img22/3012/dlc.jpg . It also counts as a game under the Steam count on the community screen but doesn't show up separately. This is a good system. However, with Far Cry 2 it adds a new entry to the Steam list and requires you manually initiate the download, as well as providing no DLC tab in the Properties window. And it doesn't even have an icon for it, which looks terrible: http://img207.imageshack.us/img207/7047/steamlist.jpg . This is far less logical and will quickly bog down your Steam list if DLC catches on.
DLC has the potential to be good but this sort of content should be added in a patch, not charged extra for. They shouldn't be charging more than £1.99 for it, especially not without extra missions and gameplay.
