68

Good idea, too pricey

So this bundle essentially gives you all of the unlocks for the game. This is great if you want to jump in and be able to take out high level jet users when you would normally have no special extras to add on to it or if you would be up against tanks with reactive armor. The most useful thing is that it adds the Defibrillator and you do not have to unlock it. I like the idea of this as it removes the need to run around for hours trying to unlock things you really want, but require over 30 hours of play just to get.

The biggest problem with this pack is that it is $40. That is almost as much as the base game was when the game released. That is a bit on the expensive side and nearly no one bought this pack. I got it because I got the game for $5 last summer on sale and did not want to spend forever gaining these items. It is worth $20 no problem $30 is stretching it and $40 is just ridiculous. I got mine on a 50% off sale so it only cost me $20 and it was a well spent $20. If you are not new to war games, then this pack will be useful, however if you are new to them this pack will be a waste. Your skill level in game will be the same no matter what unlocks you have to use when you are new to the game, but being a veteran, I was able to make great use of the vehicle unlocks and started out with a 1.6 Kill/Death ratio because of this pack. It was a great help for me.

It gets a 68 from me because it is only useful for a small group of people for the price point that was chosen.
