We particularly liked The Surge 2 back when we reviewed it before its original release in September, but we have been concerned with the performance issues we have been facing since then. While our review code allowed us to play in 4K with an 80/85% resolution scaling without witnessing a single frame drop, we now cannot go over 1080p with our RTX 2080 Ti and i9 9900K and it's been the case for months. Lowering the settings makes no difference, neither did our many attempts at reinstalling the game and switching to another SSD. With that in mind, we were afraid we might not be able to enjoy the new DLC which came out last week. In the end, we did have a pleasant time with it despite the occasional drops (in 1080p!!!), but we didn't expect it to be so short. Quick explanations inside. Note: If you're interested in The Kraken, stay away from the second part of our video, which shows its final boss.
As eager as we were to go back to The Surge 2, the first hour left us with the feeling this was going to be a solid first DLC. Little did we know that we only had about 30 minutes of gameplay left after that... As you can imagine, the storyline, though not totally uninteresting, does not truly have the time to become substantial. Some will say it 's not the franchise's main strength, but since the DLC is so short, gameplay is affected too somehow. The new area is pleasant to discover, and though some enemies are merely clever recycling of Jericho's soldiers with a skull instead of a real head, it leaves a good impression overall. That being said, there are no few places to explore than even the shortcuts don't bring as much relied as they normally do. On top of that, the 2 bosses are not particularly challenging in New Game + (that's how we played the game as you need to reach half of the main story to be able to play the DLC) and they lack originality, especially the first one. In the end, added to the performances issues we now have to face, it's hard to recommend this first attempt at extending the experience of The Surge 2, and we really hope Deck10 will be back at the top of their game next time.

@docLEXfisti:Let's not get carried away now.lol PCs hold back gaming? an SSD of a certain size can be one of the game's requirements. I have a samsung 2TB NVMe SSD with 3.5GB/s read/write in my PC atm (1 Day ago)
@docLEXfisti: hindering? No. But Series X could become the lead development platform. PC gamers are already using SSDs (1 Day ago)
