Great DLC!

The main menu music always cheers me up whenever i’m feeling a little blue. The introduction of a new character (Ms. Chalice) made me buy the DLC and it’s definitely worth it. Ms. Chalice is also a cute, female character that is just trying to be alive again. (basically thats a reason my friends boight it) Thats why I think everybody shall try Cuphead and the DLC

Truly a Delicious Last Course!

A wonderous expansion to the game Cuphead. Retains the difficulty of the original, so isn't recommended for new gamers. Some bosses could be scary (the final boss has a menacing smile for his first phase, the secret boss sings in a disturbing voice, and the final phase of one boss is a giant snowflake with a face). With that said, there are also funny moments (A boss uses a bear as an attack but throws it into the distance upon realising it's not effective and one boss gets turned into sausages mid-fight) Introduces a new character, Ms Chalice, which makes the game that bit easier. There are alcohol references in a level called "Bootlegger Boogie", and a level implies the existence of a cult, but these aren't really brought up past these points. Overall, well done.

They took four years to make this and it shows.

This is what got me back into Cuphead. The Delicious Last Course is such a delightful treat to play, pick up, even observe. It cranks Cuphead's difficulty up ever so slightly so that it's not too easy compared to the base game, but it's not a massive difficulty spike either. Also, while some of the new bosses are the worst in the game (Glumstone's first phase might be the worst in all of Cuphead.), others, such as Esther Winchester, have become my absolute favorites. And Miss Chalice is a treasure, both character and gameplay wise. In fact, she's become my Cuphead main.(Sorry, Mugman. Never really liked you.) You can tell the team had a lot of fun making this game, from the various styles of animation shown in the DLC, to the way the music sometimes combines genres, to many of the gameplay and story elements. I knew that Chef Saltbaker was a villain, but the game portrayed and animated him so maliciously that I was still in utter awe. If you have the base game, play this expansion NOW. And if you don't have the base game.... Get it. What are you waiting for? ....Unless you're under 11. There's alcohol, suggestive animations and cartoonishly evil violence that make this game unsafe for tots. But if you're old enough, you won't get enough of this wonderful last hoorah to the Inkwell Isles..... Wait, there's the show too! Yayyyyyyyy

An Appetizing Add-On to an Incredibly Innovative Indie Game!

Good golly! Now THIS is how you make DLC. (Downloadable Content) With a new playable character, a new world to explore, and more, this is the ultimate dream for any Cuphead fan. Cuphead fans have NO reason not to buy this. I mean, it only costs $7.99, that's 26% of the cost the main game was. Plus, it has better animation than the first game... it has the same amount of frames as the main game! (The main game has over 50,000 frames.) The plot isn't really that complex. (Warning for Spoilers Up Ahead! Skip to Last Paragraph to Skip Super Spoilers!) Cuphead and Mugman get a message from this Compass Guy and they hop on his boat to Inkwell Isle 4. Once they arrive, they see the Legendary Chalice. (A.k.a. Ms. Chalice in ghost form.) She offers Mugman a cookie, and learning nothing from his last adventure, Mugman takes a bite. He becomes a ghost and the Legendary Chalice turns into Ms. Chalice. A few moments later, she reverts to a ghost and Mugman is human again. Ms. Chalice tells them she wants them to meet somebody, and she explains why she reverted to a ghost on the way there. It turns out the cookie was an "Astral Cookie" and it can make her and somebody else switch between the Astral Plane and the main world for a little while. When the trio arrives at the bakery, she introduces them to Chef Saltbaker, the best baker in all the lands! He tells them he's trying to make the Wondertart, a treat which can permanently turn Ms. Chalice into a human. He then tells them he needs some ingredients and the ingredients are guarded by furious foes, which they will have to defeat. The trio sets out to defeat the foes and they eventually come back successful. They then go against the final boss and in the end, they can't make the Wondertart. Ms. Chalice says if they ever need her, she's only a bite away and she'll never stop looking for a solution to her problem. The End. While the game can be enjoyable, it may have some stuff for older kids, hence the Everyone 10+ rating. For more insight on these topics, look no further! Educational Value: 1/5: The content is SUPER difficult, and requires perseverance, which is taught to the player. Positive Messages: 2/5: The story does follow two characters helping a friend, which is the whole point of the game. Positive Role Models: 3/5: Cuphead and Mugman are eager to help out their friend, Ms. Chalice become alive again, even facing off against furious foes to do so. Diverse Reputations: 2/5: The DLC adds a playable female character, Ms. Chalice. She gives players more diverse options to play as. Ease of Play: 1/5: The game can be complex and confusing at times. Some may find the controls to be too much, while others could find the bosses are impossible. Violence and Scary Stuff: 2/5: There are loads of cannons, swords, and finger-shooting, among other stuff. All of it is bloodless and remains in the 1930's style, so don't worry. Sex and Romance: 0/5: Nothing at all. Language: 1/5: The world "hell" is used in the main game. Consumerism: 3/5: This is a DLC, so you need to buy the main game first. There is also a show based on the game/DLC. Drugs/Drinking: 2/5: A part of the Ester Winchester fight is in a Saloon, the word "Moonshine" appears, and a walking barrel is marked with three X's. Overall, an AMAZING DLC. Absolutely recommended for fans of Cuphead, (duh) fans of action and adventure games, and friendship. An absolute masterpiece.
