*A Doominator DLC review*

We love Saints Row 2, and most people would say far more so than Grand Theft Auto IV, but why? Maybe it was the endless character customization, maybe it was the open world coop, or maybe because the huge amounts of things to do, like grab people and chuck them a good 10 feet.

Oh hell, it was because you can dress your character in the Borat mankini and drive around in a septic truck spraying fecal matter at everyone and everything. It was what GTA4 should have been.

The first DLC for this magnificent game, "Ultor Exposed," was the first of three planned for the game, but a lack of content and bad value (About one hour of new gameplay, a campaign meta-game, and some new vehicles/outfits for 800MSP) started off the DLC train with some screeching gears.

I haven't played the new levels since last year, so here's the plot, courtesy of your pals at Wikipedia:

"Ultor Exposed features American pornographic actor Tera Patrick, who plays herself as a former microbiologist for the Ultor Corporation who calls upon the protagonist to help her expose the evils within it. The expansion pack also adds new customization options, vehicles, and additions to the game's multiplayer."

Wait, WHAT? Your new partner is a PORN STAR? Then again, would you expect anything less from this game? The missions in this DLC have you further dealing a blow on the infamous Ultor Corporation, but too bad there are only a few of them.
The levels themselves will run you two hours, TOPS.
The average player will probably blow through it in one hour, and even less if done in coop.

As for extra content, you get a few new vehicles (such as the EDF Scout from Red Faction: Guerilla, or as I call it: the "Red Faction-mobile") and character customization options, but it's still pretty light.

The second main component of the DLC is the "Co-op metagame," where you can play any story mission with a score counter, a similar manner to the competitive coop mode in Call of Duty: World at War. You get points for kills and breaking stuff, and the winner at the end gets a cash bonus. It's a fun diversion, and a fun thing to turn on if you are going through the campaign with a friend for those achievements anyway.

Speaking of achievements, this DLC comes with a solid 125G to be earned. You get two for doing the coop metagame (one for playing and one for five wins), two involving the story missions, and one for hosting and playing a "party game," but wasn't there an achievement for that in the main game? Overall, it's easy as it is.

To summarize, Ultor Exposed is a poor value for the amount of content you get. There is some sympathy for this, since it was the first DLC for the game (like how people went a little easy on Operation Anchorage for Fallout 3), but as it stands, this DLC is moreorless for fans only.
