Throwback Thursday – DLC Remix – Peggle 2 – Jimmy Lightening Master Pack

In order to get the platinum trophy for Peggle 2, I made it a little easier on myself and just went out and purchased the two DLC that came with the game. Was it the easy way out in order to get the platinum? Yes. Was the DLC worth it though? Keep reading to find out.

This master pack was basically the same as the Windy the Fairy pack that I told you about last week. You can read my review of it here. It added in some extra levels, some extra objectives, and gave you a new character, one from the original Peggle, to play as.

I was still pretty much enjoying my Peggle experience, so I had no problem getting through the extra levels for this pack or trying to get as many of the objectives that I could. Like I had also said before, my main motive for getting these master packs was so that yes I could get the platinum trophy for this game and make it a little easier on myself. I usually don’t do this, since most games don’t really have a thing with the DLC helping out the main game trophies, but this did so I took full advantage of it. Fortunately I don’t regret it all that much.

Like with the original game, you’ll play this right in the main story like it belonged there all along. Gotta love EA with those types of DLC. Anyway, there are no bugs or game breaking glitches that will interrupt your playthrough and it’s smooth sailing for the whole DLC.

The graphics are of course the same style as the rest of the game, but these graphics relate specifically to Jimmy Lightening. These are his levels so it makes sense that the graphics represent that. The graphics are one of the cool points of this game although some of the background graphics and the foreground graphics blend together at times making it difficult to see some of the pegs that you have to hit. Other than that the graphics are creative and one of the things that really make this game.

Play this DLC and you’ll get yourself closer to the platinum trophy for Peggle 2 as well as two additional trophies if you completely finish the DLC. This is a pretty easy task and you should have no problem with it. If you were able to get the two trophies that came with Windy the Fairy then you should be able to get the two trophies that come with Jimmy Lightening.

There is of course multiplayer with Peggle, but I completely skipped it because it’s not necessary for the game or even for the gaming experience. Unfortunately this means that I also can’t tell you about the multiplayer, but if you’re a long time reader of this blog then you know that multiplayer is never really my thing to begin with.

Overall I give this DLC a 3 out of 5.

What’s Great:
+ Just like with Windy the Fairy, it adds some more levels and trials for you to continue your Peggle 2 experience.
+ You’ll unlock a classic character from the original Peggle game who I always liked.

What’s Not So Great:
Another DLC that felt like it should have come with the game to begin with.
The background graphics and the foreground graphics sometimes interfere with each other making the board hard to see.

If you’re going for the Peggle 2 platinum I would highly recommend this DLC. It’ll only cost you an additional $1.99, or you could buy the complete Peggle 2 edition for $14.99 and have both of these DLC included. As you can probably tell, I didn’t go the smart route and actually bought the regular edition of Peggle 2 and then cursed myself because I needed the DLC and ended up spending extra money on it. My fault completely, but that shouldn’t discredit the DLC. If you’re not looking to get the platinum for this game, then I would still recommend this if you want to continue with your Peggle 2 experience.

And that’s it for Peggle 2, both DLC done and reviewed which means we can move onto a new game. But what game is it going to be and which DLC will it be for? Next week we’ll be moving on to Borderlands 2. Since I completed the DLC for both the PS3 version an the PS4 version, I’ll let you know which I thought was better as I review them at the same time and we’ll be starting with one of my favorites which is Captain Scarlet and her Pirate’s Booty.
