The Maneater: Truth Quest DLC continues on the game’s already ridiculous path, if you already own Maneater, you should already know what to expect from any DLC the game has to offer.
Just like the base game, don’t expect Maneater: Truth Quest DLC to be winning any game of the year awards, but, if you go into it and of course, don’t take it seriously, as the developers intended, it can be a hugely entertaining game, albeit a bit repetitive at times.
The DLC currently has mixed reviews on Steam, which sums this DLC up perfectly, it’s not bad, it’s not great, but there’s definitely some fun to be had there.
Maneater: Truth Quest DLC features some cool new moves too, one of which is a laser move, which to be honest, is a little too overpowered, and makes a lot of your other attacks redundant.
Maneater: Truth Quest Campaign
The campaign is extremely short, but that being said, I don’t buy a game about a rampaging mutant shark to play the campaign, for me, it’s much more like playing a GTA game (but with a shark), where I prefer to just run rampant and cause chaos.
If I was just buying the expansion for the campaign, I have to be honest, I might have been a little disappointed, but for those like me who just want to chow down on some unsuspecting beach dwelling humans, Truth Quest creates create some new and enjoyable ways to do so.
I won’t spoil the game for you, but I have to say, the highlight of the campaign is when you face off against a gigantic opponent, which does alter the game’s usual formula for something much more intense and enjoyable.
As with Maneater’s base game, one of the best aspects of Maneater: Truth Quest is the narration from Chris Parnell, who often takes the game from marginally comic to laugh out loud.
Parnell’s witty narration has at times been my driving point to explore the waters, looking for more to uncover, and hopefully, enjoy what he has to say about what I’ve found.
Maneater Truth Quest continues the game where you left off, simply raising the level cap, giving you some new toys to play with and some new areas to explore.
If you haven’t yet completed the base game, then there is little point to investing in the Truth Quest DLC yet, as the DLC focuses on expanding the end game content.
There are new enemies to take on in Truth Quest, the most noticeable of them being helicopters and irradiated creatures that might offer the average player a bit more of a challenge.
If you’re contemplating buying Maneater: Truth Quest, you just need to ask yourself, how much did you enjoy the base game, and are you happy to pay to expand upon that experience, even if that means more of the same thing.
