Looks like my Lightning DLC expectations were unreasonably high

It'll just be a battle. I was expecting a DLC that takes 5-10 hours to go through with multiple bosses, Eidolons fighting by your side, an awesome multi-form fight with Caius, and a CGI cutscene at the end.

Hm.

Interesting.

It was always going to be just a battle...

And DLC that would take that long is basically a game in itself. O_O

No a DLC like that isn't as long as a normal game. More of a, expansion pack. Its been done before. I also knew when I saw the base price was estimated at 5-6 dollars that we where getting something small though.

I prefer the term treasure hunter.

i wasn't expecting it to be 5-10hours long knowing square they usually don't qualify that as like 6$ value they think that's like 30$ value. Anyways ya i was disapointed as well that it was just a battle :/ i was hoping you'd at least get to walk around valhalla with lightning like you did with sazh in his dlc but i guess it's harder for lightning since she has a completely different outfit where was they just reused sazh's old model. Oh well.....the lesson is guys don't have high expectations for square-enix you will only be disapointed. cough cough versus xiii where the f are you cough cough

Well, you really have to choose one:
You can have high expectations
or
you can have them rush the game.

High expectations is expecting it to be a masterpiece, not expecting it to be released this week.

But these DLCs were never advertised as expansion packs. They have always been small episodes that you play to get a bit more story and a character to boot.

Have they ever had a JRPG with an 'expansion pack' like that for the PS3?

XD yes, those are extremely high.

Though is it actually confirmed to be only one battle or are you making an assumption based off the screenshots?
