Why you shouldn't buy all DLC -- Read before buying
Steam is selling a pack with all DLC together.

Problem is, this includes silver & gold dlc, which give you a massive XP bonus, ruining the balance of the first half of the game.

If you need or want easy mode, go ahead, but it's a much better experience without it.
And no, you really don't need all those money dlcs at all, you'll be rolling in money eventually and these also break the gradual development feel of the game.

I personally only recommend the drunken fist DLC, it's 50 cents right now on sale.
The added moves are highly entertaining.

The nightmare story dlc is pretty goofy, most of the costume and vehicle dlcs are absurd and superfluous. I guess zodiac and swat missions were ok, if you really want to buy something.

None of this is against the base game in any way, which is fantastic.

Thanks for the advice.
I never liked those "cheats" DLC or pré-order weapons, like you said they break the game balance.

Kudos for the info.

Yeah think i'll hold off and buy it when i've finished. The base game is very good, it's tempting to add dlc but i think i'll wait.

Honestly, none of the DLC is worth the money... don't waste your money if you're a first time player.
The costumes and what not are all nice for a few minutes, but after that more often than not you'll want to go back to your custom outfit instead.

One question: Could you get a 100% achievement completion rate without the dlc?

Yes, you can get the 100% achievement without the DLC.

No you can't. Nightmare in North Point has Achievements, and if I remember correctly, so does Zodiac Tournament.

Yeah just buy the dlc's as gifts so you can put them in your inventory.

And for OP it's not that hard to read what every dlc does, but your post is still good for a new player.

Ok.

Let's me see if I understand

I buy the DLCS today

And I put then in my Inventory, buying like a gift

Later, I can use the DLC I want

And not blow the game experince

Like your friend BenWah say

Thanks for the help man

No its not hard to read but some might just grab the pack because they want all DLC not realizing some of it is game breaking. I did read through them all but nice heads up anyway. The money and xp packs give way too much
