Does it flesh out the plot to a degree worth buying it for? I have no problems with the game's story as it is now (just got to Historia Crux) but I was considering buying the DLC or just watching it on YT.

How's the gameplay and plot in the DLC? Do you think it justifies a purchase?

It's worth it for story alone.

It gives some sort of closure to a certain character and it serves as a prologue for the third XIII game.

Finish the game first and decide whether you want the experience to continue. If not, finish the game then go on youtube and watch videos on the the DLC story.

Oh yeah, forgot to ask - how long is it in terms of gameplay? :)

1 hour, and thats only bc its going to take you half a dozen attempts repeating the same fight over n over until you are able to beat it.

Would you guys recommend playing through the Lightning DLC after completing the game then or is there a better time to play it?

I completed the game before the DLC came out and now want to play through again using a guide to get 100% and will probably buy the DLC.

Given that you already know the story, I'd do the DLC as soon as you gain access to the Historia Crux. That way you can (ab)use COM Lightning to destroy the story sections on your second time through.

Ah good thinking, thanks for the advice. Need to get the Snow DLC too, already have the others I think. Plus got a lot of the DLC boss fights to do as didn't have the time/patience to beat them first time round!

It was a so-so for me. It's basically giving you a final wrap up of FFXIII-2's story. It's like the a 'secret' ending basically.

But I'm just disappointed that you didn't get to do much other than fight. It would've been better if the DLC was a 'secret' mission like Sazh's but combined with fighting. That would've been more awesome.
