The weapon DLC is useless, but the rest is more than worth the price of admission. Clash in the Clouds is a very fun arena expansion pack with dozens of challenges and wave based combat. I didn't play it as much as I thought I would, but I did enjoy it a lot. The other 2 expansions are part 1 and 2 of a story that connects Bioshock Infinite to the very beginning of the original Bioshock. The content is different enough from the main game that it doesn't feel like a cash grab or content that was cut from the game just to be sold separately. Just being able to re-explore Rapture prior to the events of the original game is more than worth the price of admission as you get to experience the city's downfall and learn why it is mostly destroyed and underwater in the original game. You can easily get 10-15 hours out of the season pass DLC, and quite possibly even more if you really love the arena challenges. At the very least, if you loved Infinite, you should buy the season pass when it's $10 if not full or close to full price.
The Season Pass is the best way to get both episodes of Burial at Sea, with the added bonus of Clash in the Clouds - which you'll definitely appreciate if you enjoyed Bioshock Infinite's gameplay. This is some of the best the Bioshock series has to offer, so if you're a fan (of Elisabeth in particular) I recommend buying the Season Pass when you get the chance - probably on a sale.
This is what I expect out of a season pass. I hate it when all they give you is access to different skins. But this one, gives you access to different challenges to have fun killing mobs and jumping around the skylines and then gives you access to 2 different episodes that take place somewhere you'll recognize if you have played the previous titles. The Early Bird Special isn't all that bad, although the extra health, shield or Vigor might make the ride a bit easier. So use it with caution. Overall, this is one great Season Pass. Plus, if you bought all pieces separately, you would spend a lot more. Get this one and enjoy more hours of this beautiful game.
The season pass contains three pieces of DLCs as well as some gear for use during your playthrough. The first one is a standard fighting mode where you face hordes of enemies. But the star of the Season Pass are the other two pieces of story-based DLC, Burial at Sea which add around 7-9 hours of additional story-driven content. It's just phenomenal storytelling, especially the second episode and even more so if you're a fan of the original BioShock. I cannot recommend this enough.
I brought this a few days after the release of Bioshock Infinite, having played the main game for £12.80. I had thoroughly enjoyed the main game and was left with a post-game hangover; I wanted more. The Season Pass was a perfect candidate to satisfy my hunger and I rationalised to myself - for a developer with a track record of amazing games the DLCs cannot disappoint. Unfortunately, having played the first two DLCs, that's exactly what has happened. The first DLC, Clash in the Clouds, is a lame excuse for the DLC. While it provides you with new maps and new challenges, this DLC serves only to highlight how weak the combat is when removed from the story. This DLC lacking this critical element proves to have little entertainment value. The second DLC, being story led does makes it insusceptible to the same criticism. In particular, the artwork and the graphics in rebuilding Rapture must be praised. But the game is far too short, in that as soon as you start becoming engrossed it's already over with a gameplay totalling about 2-3hrs. While the third DLC is yet to be released, for now I am utterly disappointed with the DLCs and utterly regret purchasing the season pass for the price I did. I would seek a refund if I could. My suggestion is if you liked the main game, buy this season pass but only when it's on sale; don't pay more than £10 and ideally around £8. That price range more accurately represents the value you are getting.
