  • BioShock 2

    Minerva's Den DLC was basically a character study on AI and early computing, with INCREDIBLE visuals. The graphics alone are worth the price of the game itself, though opinion on Bioshock 2 itself is almost cleanly split down the middle: half of gamers love it, the other half think it shouldn't have been made. But almost all agree that Minerva's Den was a huge improvement.

  • New Super Mario Bros U

    New Super Luigi Bros. U DLC completely omits that other plumber, allowing you to play through entirely as Luigi, with his higher jumps, lower traction, and floaty physics. It is practically it's own stand alone game.

    Knife of Dunwall DLC added the ability to play as master assassin Daud (the main antagonist of the first game), making for an entirely new game with new missions, objectives, and gameplay that are arguably better than the first game.

    The Brigmore Witches DLC added an additional story arc which with hours of additional gameplay linking the story from the main campaign to the other 3 additional DLCs. This one in particular, wonderfully builds to a spectacular finale.
