Gaming Union: "Playing as Sam is like playing as Vergil in DmC. They're characters you've always wanted to play as and rightfully so as their rivals' main stories often has them showcasing a depth that many would like to explore. Sam unfortunately wasn't given much in wow factor with a chasm of difference that could've been filled. Fortunately, Sam's escapade isn't anywhere within being a hot mess as Vergil's. The DLC can be best perceived as an attachable accessory that adds a nice new layer to a game that many of us haven't even neared being tired of replaying, in spite of the fact that there could've been more done to bring out his infamous allure."
