First of all, let me say that this DLC, as with any DLC, should not be purchased unless you thoroughly enjoyed the game without it or desperately want the achievements. Otherwise, you would be better off buying something else. With that out of the way, on to the review.

Value of Content: 4/5
You should expect a $10 DLC pack to add a decent amount of content, and this pack meets expectations for the most part. It adds 4 new modes to multiplayer: Poker, Liar's Dice, Grand Prix, and Stronghold. The Poker and Liar's Dice allow up to six players to play at once utilizing a multiplayer money system that is tied to your profile and only used in those modes. They are exactly like the single-player minigames, except your opponents are human. The Grand Prix mode is a horse-racing tournament that allows the use of guns, and Stronghold is an objective-based game mode that involves capturing or defending certain points. This pack also adds the Explosive Rifle, a sniper rifle (although it has no zoom) that causes an explosion similar to TNT when fired. The Explosive Rifle can be used in single player, Undead Nightmare, and multiplayer under certain conditions. This pack adds 15 characters to the multiplayer, all of which are from Red Dead Redemption's single-player story. This includes characters such as John, Jack, and Irish. On top of all this, the pack adds 7 new gang hideouts and several new hunting grounds for the multiplayer. Finally, there are new single-player and multiplayer challenges associated with the new content.

Replayability: 5/5
Luckily, the vast majority of the new content adds a great deal of replay value to the game. You will end up playing a lot of Liar's Dice and Poker in order to get certain achievements if you aren't playing just for fun. Grand Prix mode and Stronghold are both very entertaining as well. The explosive rifle is quite possibly the most entertaining thing about the entire pack, especially since hitting a target with it directly causes them to disappear in an explosion of blood. You will find it very useful in Undead Nightmare as well, largely because you can melee-kill zombies with it without using any ammo. The new multiplayer characters are also a great source of entertainment, due largely to some of the things they say (much of which is straight out of the single player). The gang hideouts and hunting grounds add new places to grind for experience or just have fun. Overall, the content and its achievements will undoubtedly add hours of play to the game.

Achievements: 4/5
One area where this DLC really shines is its 15 achievements worth 100 gamerscore. The achievements are challenging and engaging to get, and there are a couple of achievements challenging you to get points in the multiplayer free roam, leaving you the freedom to obtain the points however you wish. There is one achievement for completing the single-player Explosive Rifle challenges, but the vast majority are for the 4 new game modes. Getting these without boosting is difficult and entertaining, but boosting is certainly an option with all of them. Despite all these positives, I can think of three distinct downsides to the new achievements. First, there are no achievements associated with new hideouts. Second, some of the achievements are extremely difficult to get without boosting due to the low number of players in certain playlists. Finally, there are 15 achievements, some of which are quite difficult, but they are all worth 5 or 10 gamerscore. However, by the time you complete this DLC pack, you will be satisfied. That is what truly matters.
