It's well worth it. I love this game. Go all in. It's on Steam and GOG now so there are no excuses.

Yea, I bought this even though I'm not actually needing a new game to play. Just wanted to finally support it being free from the CCP.

Bought it on GoG. Wasn't going to because Cyberpunk was coming soon, but with the delay I figured why not. I have to say I am liking it more than I expected so far. :)

I really enjoyed it and just finished the first DLC. I'd like to maintain the momentum and jump into the second DLC, but unfortunately it's around six-months out!

Let me know how it turns out, thinking about picking this one up.
Thoroughly enjoying the game. It's got a Fallout / Borderlands vibe which works and works well.

How you configure your character makes a big difference. First playthrough my character is set for persuasion / sneak with a little bit of gunplay in case the previous combo doesn't work givin the situation.

I do like weapon and armor upgrade system. Scrounging for parts is the way to go since purchasing parts can get expensive.

I really want to play the new DLC, I have to check to see if I have a save before I ended the game, I don't want to go back and replay the game to play the DLC.

Couldn't stand it. Wasn't interested in the story at all, had little motivation to play through. And it seemed like the enemies became much harder. They took a good 4-5 times more hits to kill than the base game. Base game may have been a tad too easy, but now everything requires 100-300 shots to kill? Bad decision. Easily one of the most boring things I've played recently.

And I quite enjoyed the main game. I'll still play the 2nd DLC but not going to be in a rush to try it.

It depends on your character. Mine has long gun to 100+, and I ended the base game with Assault Ultras. The DPS for each rifle here was like 123? Sniper was 300? Now thanks to the DLC, I can get Mark 3 Rifles, heavily spec'd up. I think have a DPS of high 100s, low 200? Sniper is like 450+? I carry 3 rifles with me at all times, each a type of mod (plasma, corrosive, electric) and then a sniper rifle (shock). Even playing on hard, nothing really stood a chance against me if you use the right mod on the right type. Especially if you roll with a SAM unit. When in doubt, roll use plasma unless its a robot.
