The Good, the Bad, and the Undead is the first DLC for the card-based turn-based tactical RPG Marvel’s Midnight Suns. This DLC has a relatively short duration and not as much content as the writer’s initial expectations. To experience this DLC, you must play the base game until Spider-Man joins the party and reveals his secret to the world. You then head to the Mirror Table in the Abbey to activate the DLC and do the main quest ‘A Man of Culture’ in the New York area to unlock a new character: Deadpool.
Besides Deadpool becoming an official member of Midnight Sun, this DLC also features a new vampire enemy called Vampyre. Like other superhero characters in the original game, this “comedy and clown” character also has its own set of interesting skills, such as a card that can attack both enemies at the same time if the opponent first got KO. When enough Heorism is collected, this character can launch a combo attack with another character or use the environment advantage from the level. The interactive elements remain the same as the other characters in the Abbey.
The problem is, Deadpool’s combat ability revolves around accumulating En Fuego through causing enemies to “fly away” and dodge their attacks. The En Fuego stat is proportional to the character’s damage and attack sequence, but this stat brings very little strategic element in the battle if not quite weak and heavy on randomness. If you let your character get hit by an enemy’s attack, you must accumulate En Fuego from the beginning.
On the other hand, you have to use the Taunt “cà khà” card to increase the character’s dodging ability, which is like forcing the player to let Deadpool stand ‘taunt’ more than attack. The only way to keep this stat at its maximum is if you have to party with “big thinkers meet” characters with taunt cards. Therefore, this character is difficult to shine on the battlefield without the right teammates, especially when you have to sacrifice many things.
Worth mentioning, the new narrative of Marvel’s Midnight Suns: The Good, the Bad, and the Undead is not as long as the writer’s expectations, but the script is well-written and suggests the continuation of the plot in the next DLC. according to. You can even collect information in this DLC and guess the new villain in the remaining three DLC. Notably, this DLC also comes with a number of updates that improve game stability and reduce crashes, at least on the PlayStation 5 platform that I experienced.
The new enemy Vampyre is also a formidable opponent in battle. They can add a bleed effect to the cards on your screen when attacking, forcing the player to think more carefully before using those cards. This is especially true in mission situations where you have to deal with a lot of vampyre enemies. For example, there is a mission that requires you to destroy them before the people become the target of the vampyres. But easier said than done because Deadpool’s weapons are only suitable for 1v1 attacks.
The humorous element was also built a lot by the development team in Marvel’s Midnight Suns: The Good, the Bad, and the Undead. In fact, Deadpool is an interesting character when it has a very diverse animation, not as much repetition as other characters. Actor Nolan North also voiced this character with a lot of jokes during the short playing time, but more “sound” and not vulgar like in the movie about this character. The writer laughed a lot when the character broke the fourth wall.
After all, Marvel’s Midnight Suns: The Good, the Bad, and the Undead is a pretty good DLC with a very short duration to create a bit of “turbulence” for a game that is gradually losing its heat in the market. However, the new character doesn’t change the familiar gameplay, and Deadpool’s sarcastic humor probably won’t please everyone, especially serious players. Well, entrust the noble mission to the next DLC!
Marvel’s Midnight Suns: The Good, the Bad, and the Undead is available now for PC (Windows), PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
