Stasis Interrupted is the final Season Pass DLC and it's expand the single player. Set before ACM and after the events of Aliens we learn Hicks story through 3 different characters. I have to spoil: we can't play as Hicks in the game, but we can company him. The DLC also support up to 4 player co-op! But doesn't support unlocks and DLC weapons, and in the first chapter till half-way we don't have any weapons! On later mission we slowly unlock new ones. The AI feels better than the campaign. The Aliens use more the ducts and ceilings, you really need to be sharp. Especially on the first mission. It's almost like AVP2. The graphics and map design feels much better then the core game. Still not like in the demo, but looks much better in every aspect. We can see new location at familiar or known locations. Micheal Biehn and Lance Henriksen return to their roles and the other voice-acting is good too. The music get better too, gives more tension. The story is good and interesting, try to fix that gap between Aliens and Alien 3 - and ACM. It's succeed in certain aspect, but also gives a few new hole.
If you own ACM you must get this DLC, even if you not interested in the Season Pass or MP. I say it's better then the main game in every aspect!

Even if Aliens: Colonial Marines tends to get criticized by gamers, I think no fan of the Aliens franchise should leave the game unplayed. And with the addition of some DLCs the story and gameplay become better than in the base game, so the game is actually pretty much playable and can be enjoyed - especially if you are into Aliens. Stasis Interrupted is a storyline-expanding DLC, that adds the story of what happened to Hicks between Aliens (the second movie) and Alien 3. It adds a new campaign for 3 characters, whose stories will interlock. Even if it's not a masterpiece in its genre, it adds another piece to the story, so if you're interested in seeing it unfold you shouldn't miss this pack.
