Awakened is the first DLC for Dead Space 3. If you want to know more about the game based read our review here . If you recall, the lack of content was not a problem in Dead Space 3 and the only criticism we had the game was the lack of terror that marked the previous titles. Dead Space 3 takes about 20 hours and Awakened adds something around two hours.
After ending that leaves everything open, one would expect Awakened solve some things but that's not what happens. Despite the additional hours Awakened just replaces one cliff-hanger on the other, which as much as I hate to admit it is good. Not all players like DLCs, and many just buy the base game. How would the story for players who do not buy the DLCs? This is without a doubt the reason Visceral could not simply offer players the final wanted from a DLC.
