I didn't enjoy The Evil Within much since I was expecting something brand new in the genre of survival horror. I missed a lot of things in the game, and I was very disappointed. I wasn't sure about giving the DLC a chance since I already spent a lot of time in a game that I didn't like much, but I was wrong. The whole DLCs for The Evil Within actually makes The Evil Within a better game, or at least, a more focused one. If you hated as much as I did the stealth parts of The Evil Within you will be surprised how well polished the new mechanics are regarding that matter. If you needed way more answers to your questions at the ending of The Evil Within, this DLCs will give you lots of them -even though it is far from a closed plot. What I'm trying to say is that, if you liked The Evil Within, this season pass is totally worth it.
The Executioner is the casual fun/minigame DLC part: first person bloody combat. There's not much elaboration or story, you need to get "medals" to improve and get new weapons, but smashing people with the hammer and the finishers may fill you with glee. There's not a lot to see here, that's why it's shortness works in it's favor. The Julie Kidman DLC can be more scary than the main game itself, since you're unarmed the 80% of the time. With almost no combat, having to rely on hiding and quick thinking, and some gruesome moments, you could call it a third person amnesia the dark descent. There's some story details that help to understand the story better, but not better than reading a wikia :D
For only adding in 2 new story campaigns with a new character that are relatively short, $20 is a big asking price. The third piece of DLC is exactly as it sounds without the "fun". I would only pick this up if it was half off or less. With that being said though, the story content you get adds a lot of narrative to the main story and it even ties in to the main story. It shines a new light on some scenes I had problems with before. Catch this when it goes on sale.
