A Review By Hidai Moya
In this DLC, Napoleon Bonaparte begins his rise to power by seeking a piece of Eden buried somewhere in Royal necropolis of St. Denis. You must find it before he does by exploring its deep labyrinth of tombs & catacombs underneath the town.
St. Denis is a burnt out worn out locale whose beautiful monuments have seen better days. It’s gloomy atmosphere contrasts perfectly with the bright elegance of Paris.
Dead Kings introduces a new enemy type in the form of tomb raider gangs who bunch up on you like ants, but thankfully the game gives you a Guillotine Gun, the 18th century version of a grenade launcher, to combat them all at once (also introduced are some of the best cosmetic outfits of the game).
Continuing with inspiration from Alexander Dumas swashbuckler stories this is a solid spin off tale that adds more depth the world Unity.
I really thought it ended well & gave Arno a good send off.
