A decent DLC for ACM

Reconnaissance Pack is not the best DLC for ACM. It has only 4 new maps, which are almost impossible to play. Expect, if you have enough friends or you joined a specific group to launch DLCs maps. The new maps are good and huge, fun if you jump in a full house match with 12 players! The new Aliens customizations are looks nice, but the fatalities are better. Looks more horrifying. Grief is a good, multi level map, set on LV-426 rocks with many buildings, rooms, corridors, caves. The game can be played both Team Deathmatch and Extermination modes. Shipwreck is set on a ship, also a multi level map with many corridors, most of them wide some of them are very tight. Autopsy is the best map it's really huge, has many levels, corridors, rooms. You can lost in it. The level art design also pretty good, looks and feels like the movie. Off the grid map... well, that one I can't played even once. Since Extermination mode is the favorite between players plus it's a DLC map. If you have the Season Pass Reconnaissance Pack isn't a bad DLC, but if you like to buy separatly don't do it, only on sales.

Not worth 6.99

So Aliens: Colonial Marines was a pretty bad game and not very well recieved but what was worse is that many people purchased a season pass so they can access to all the dlc but with all the negative reaction I got the impressions that apart from the bug hunt dlc there wasn't going to be any more but thankfully I was wrong. So what do you get in this dlc?

Three new Team Deathmatch/Extermination maps including ‘Shipwreck’, a multi-tiered map where environmental awareness is key in getting the drop on your enemy

A new Survivor map called ‘Off the Grid’ located around the iconic Derelict ship outside the Weyland-Yutani military base

New skins, fatalities and heads for each Xeno class

This content isn't bad - the new skins are nothing special but the maps are good and a welcome addiction but for a dlc it's not enough and it's not worth £6.99! Though since the release of this dlc another massive patch has been released the game. It's has some small improvements to the graphics and gameplay. It's not going to save the game but at least gearbox are trying to solve some of the problems with this game
