Raiders of the Broken Planet - Wardog Fury adds a new campaign for those who loved the mission based gameplay of the main game. Once more, take your favorite Raiders like Harec, Konstantin and Shae as they fight hordes of baddies. Plus now, you can try some new raiders such as Loaht for this DLC expansion!. Go at it alone or with friends/random players once more to see if you can stop the newest threat from General Marmalade. In Raiders of the Broken Planet - Wardog Fury, you’re getting more Raiders, and if that sounds appealing then you’re going to like this new DLC.
What to Expect
With 4 new missions and several new characters, Raiders of the Broken Planet - Wardog Fury adds quite a bit to an already quite large title. Play as a 4-man raider team like before to tackle tough missions with teamwork or become the antagonist and make other players suffer as they try to accomplish their task. What also returns from the base Raiders of the Broken Planet game are the humor filled lines from the cast of characters and a truly fun sci-fi themed story. Get ready raiders! Raiders of the Broken Planet - Wardog Fury is waiting to test your third person shooting skills and test it will.
Once more, we join Harec’s team as he scours the planet for more treasures and possible teammates. A new possible recruit named Loaht—a renegade soldier—has caught the eye of Harec and he hopes to find him as soon as possible. However, Harec isn’t the only one searching for Loaht, General Marmalade—who Loaht defected from—wants to take him out. Now, it’s a race against time to see who can find Loaht first. Though for Loaht’s sake, he better hope the Raiders find him first…
In September, Raiders of the Broken Planet released and we here at Honey’s Anime were fortunate enough to get to review the prologue missions. We had mostly positive things to say about Raiders of the Broken Planet - Prologue and having played the last DLC as well, we overall have a lot of love for developer MercurySteam’s title. With that being said, we have now gotten the chance to review the newest piece of DLC and wish to share our thoughts with you readers out there on the internet. Join us in our review of Raiders of the Broken Planet - Wardog Fury.
Assuming you’ve played the base game Raiders of the Broken Planet, we can skip ahead and say not much has changed with Raiders of the Broken Planet - Wardog Fury. The third person frantic shooter action returns but with some notable fixes here and there but ultimately remains the same. That’s why for this review of Raiders of the Broken Planet - Wardog Fury, we’ll just be looking at the new content and the missions themselves to talk about our experiences and if anything’s changed from the last DLC known as Alien Myths. First, let’s discuss the missions themselves.
Like Alien Myths, Wardog Fury adds 4 new missions and a few new characters for players to play. Each mission is a multipart affair with players having to accomplish various tasks with a limited supply of respawns—which are shared if you’re playing via matchmaking—and the chaos of enemies flying at you guns blazing. It’s tough, fun and sometimes, extremely frustrating—though not in a bad way—and that’s one thing to love about Raiders of the Broken Planet - Wardog Fury. We do wish that these 4 new missions would have been just a bit more varied seeing as how they adhere to the same systems found in the base game—charge up this and survive that—but equally, they were still fun and usually were quite rewarding once you completed them.
Our main gripe with the new DLC is the same issues we had with the main game and last DLC for Raiders of the Broken Planet. Too often, it took us anywhere from 5-25 minutes to find a match with others and all it took was one player not to hit okay to have to restart the wait for a new team of players. Needless to say, due to our original thoughts of Raiders of the Broken Planet not being overly populated, Raiders of the Broken Planet - Wardog Fury suffers in turn. Don’t expect to find quick matches regardless of the time of day and that’s a real shame. Then add to the pain with the antagonist system still being kind of unfair and you’re looking at quick games that require lengthy wait times.
Finally, let us discuss the most important aspect of Raiders of the Broken Planet - Wardog Fury. Is it worth the price of admission? You’re getting essentially 4 new missions, a few new characters and various extra goodies for each character such as items to unlock via in-game currency or real-life money. At the price tag of $9.99, we believe it’s pretty worth it here at Honey’s Anime. We do hope the next DLC offers so more mission variety and such but as it is, Raiders of the Broken Planet - Wardog Fury is a nice few extra hours of content.
Honey's Gameplay Consensus:
Raiders of the Broken Planet - Wardog Fury is a great DLC for an already awesome game. Though it still has terrible matchmaking problems and a large amount of difficulty, Raiders of the Broken Planet - Wardog Fury still offers one heck of an explosive time while playing. With several new playable characters to nab and 4 more missions, Raiders of the Broken Planet - Wardog Fury offers up a nice amount of content for a decent price tag. If you loved the base game then we definitely think you won’t mind shelling out $9.99 for Raiders of the Broken Planet - Wardog Fury. Though again we remind you, don’t expect an easy time going in.
Still a ton of fun alone or with friends
New missions are exciting and tough
The several new playable characters offer some nice new gameplay styles
The story is a great mature sci-fi tale
Gameplay returns as great as it was before
Matchmaking still needs some work
Missions could use a bit more variety
Antagonist players need to be reworked
Honey's Final Verdict:
We here at Honey’s Anime still wish Raiders of the Broken Planet was more popular. Seriously, we feel Raiders of the Broken Planet - Wardog Fury could be so much better if there were more people to play with but for what we got, we won’t complain and neither should you. Raiders of the Broken Planet - Wardog Fury is a truly nice piece of DLC that offers up some new missions and new content for those itching to return to the raider lifestyle.
