This pack is an add-on to your base game. It gives you some weapons, weapon upgrades, items, Silver Eagles and lock picks. I don't think you need this add-on to fully enjoy the game, but it certainly doesn't hurt the early experience of the game. I found that I could open locked doors which I would have had to go back if I didn't have these lock picks. So, it saved me a bit of walking time. While it does make the game easier, as long as you set it on a hard difficulty, this will not ruin your game experience. Plus, if you are a completionist, getting this add-on will help a lot with that.
BioShock Infinite: Columbia's Finest is an add-on DLC that basically gives you weapons, items, and other gear to use in the campaign of the game. When it comes down to it, this content is perfectly useable, but not really needed. The game isn't easy, but hardly requires this much stuff to compete early on. Money is fairly easy to come by, and I honestly spent little time dwelling on what "gear" I used. This content could be useful on 1999 mode, but cheapens the challenge and players of that mode will probably already be proficient enough at the game to not need it. This pack is really only for newcomers to FPS type games, or those wanting a much easier path to the finish.
It's exactly what it looks like. Perfect. Wonderful. If you get it, you'll know what you're getting. That's it, yanno?
I don't get why everybody is giving this a less than 100. It is exactly what it says it is. You get the full product; everything it offers is not a lie. Seriously, it's all it needs to be--it is all that it says. Read the description of this, you know what it is. What, do you think it's lying or something? Because it isn't. Get it if you want it and you'll be 100% satisfied. It meets every expectation.
My first playthrough of the game was on Hard, and I still had an abundance of resources. The additional guns is very welcome (since the base game had little to no variety in weapon choice), but it's hard to justify the $5 price tag for this one. If you really need help with 1999 mode, you could maybe give this a try, but chances are if you need help this badly then the extra firepower won't help very much, especially in late game.
