An epic expansion to the already great Ion Fury. All the additional features added in this expansion makes it all the more fun, like the racing bicycle segments, which add a good variety to the gameplay.

I didn't vibe too much with the base game of Ion Fury, it felt like an overly drawn out game that was lacking in variety and had a really underwhelming final level. This expansion fixes all of that.

Levels are still sprawling, filled to the brim with secrets, but the game doesn't draw out for long. There's more enemy types and the designers are way less afraid to throw tougher encounters at you that aren't just spammy. To add on to this, we have the hover bike sections which are really fun. I was disappointed when it turned out that only the first one is like an arcade driving game, where you have a timer and have to avoid obstacles, but even just using it as a regular vehicle in normal levels was cool.

Had a great time with this, they designed a way better paced campaign with this and the final boss even is an actual enemy. I'm still not the fondest of the characters and all, but the game itself finally clicked for me when I gave this DLC a go, great fun.

A fun expansion for a already great game. It feels like they learned a lot from making the base game about pacing and variety of gameplay and put all their experience into the expansion

This just rules. The peak of Build Engine FPS. Gorgeous art and world design, the added enemy variants make combat even more compelling than the base game. The vehicle section is a blast, and ends just when it should. My only complaint is that it ended a little too soon, but it is an expansion after all.

Shorter, tighter, with more variety. At "just" 15 levels, this expansion clocks in at around half the length of the original. But it packs that length with more level variety and, interestingly, an entire stretch of levels dedicated to a new vehicle/hover motorcycle mechanic.

Aftershock addresses every main complaint about the original game. Thought it had too many sewer levels in the middle part? Here's 15 levels, the majority of which are outdoor urban areas. Thought it didn't have enough variety? Here's a vehicle section. Thought it dragged on too long? Well, buddy, this one's half the length.

All that, and they added in a new BFG type weapon.

The original Ion Fury already stood head and shoulders above the rest of the retro FPS market. Aftershock is somehow even better.
