Doritos Crash Course: City Lights
Doritos Crash Course was a surprise hit when it was released on the Xbox LIVE Arcade two years ago, mainly because it was a decent use of the Xbox 360 Avatars, it was fun, and most surprisingly, it was free. Perhaps even more surprising is that Doritos Crash Course just received downloadable content, in the form of 15 new levels taking place in Las Vegas and London, as well as easier levels taking place in Japan.
What do I get and why do I want it?
Doritos Crash Course was already a pretty satisfying experience, with 15 levels spanning the USA, Europe and Japan. The first two being rather simple to get the basics of the game’s mechanics and gameplay, and Japan being a fun but difficult finale to the game. The new Las Vegas level serves as a challenge to complete and earn gold medals, while the London levels are more of an exercise in timing and patience. Both feel like worthy additions to the game, and despite a lot of gamers probably having moved on from Crash Course, a die-hard fan of the original game content will be more than happy with the new levels. I’m glad Crash Course got DLC, and it feels good to take a break from my usual hectic FPS gaming with a little avatar bashing.
How much is it?
160 Microsoft points. Yes the original game is free, but 160 Microsoft Points is small change compared to most DLC packs on Xbox LIVE, and it is well worth the price. For the achievement junkies out there, yes, there are three more achievements with 100 Gamerscore available.
- More Doritos Crash Course!
- More achievements
- Easy to learn, difficult to master
- Excellent value for money
- Some Las Vegas levels are extremely difficult
Conclusion – is it worth it?
If you’re a fan of Doritos Crash Course, and have some spare Microsoft Points, absolutely. If you are new to Crash Course, get the original game for free first, and then if you’re still insatiable for obstacle course-based carnage, pick up the DLC later.
