Yeah, they seem easy to boost. Just like with the next set of DLC, as all of the achievements are related to playing on the maps that come with it. Really wished they would have released DLC that added more the single player like they did in Brotherhood. And the added multiplayer DLC (maps) for Brotherhood was free and had no achievements. Kinda wish they went the same route with the Revelations. But oh well. Since i'm a completionist and i've already 1000 pointed the retail game, i'll buy the DLC and get all the achievements.

Not worth it. Completed the story yesterday and have 4 single player cheevos left. Gotta do multiplayer now but that won't take long as the main multiplayer achievements are embarassingly easy... then i'll move onto skyrim.

90G seems to be a slightly random amount. Wonder how the rest of the DLC is going to be structured. I know I'm getting Revelations for Christmas, but I'm not sure I'll get this DLC immediately, since I never really enjoyed Brotherhood's multiplayer. Might wait and see if it goes on sale in a few months / a year.
Feel free to PM me about the GTA IV walkthrough, or any problems you're having with the game.

The easiest dlc I've ever completed!

All can be done in private matches and you need only 3 persons for that!

But 90G for 320 MSP ? With a good DotW you get 200G for 200 MSP!laugh

Honestly, with how Revelations ended, I'd think that if they added any story DLC, it would be later than the multiplayer. It would have to lead into the upcoming third game.

The only reason to have 4 achievements for a paltry 90 GS is so you can bombard me with DLC more than once a quarter and still attach a small number of achievements to each one. Thanks, but I'll pass.

A tempting b-day present for myself, but I dunno. After rocking Brotherhood for $60 last year, only to see it at $20 as of now, don't think it's viable for me to be dishing out $60 for this and it's unfavorable reviews.

And damn, dubstep must've been the thing back in Constantinople.

Meh - not a huge fan of MP achievements in general, but even these look easy to pop, private or public. I'm really hoping some form of Single Player DLC is on the horizon, because map/character pack after pack is just boring.
