Check out my review of the game here: Burial at Sea: Episode 1 (DLC) review
Burial at Sea: Episode 1 is one of those weird little story DLCs that doesn’t really explain much, but nevertheless manages to be fun. Is that fun worth 15 dollars? Not a chance. Is Episode 1 worth picking up on sale as an intro to Burial at Sea: Episode 2? Almost definitely, though you should definitely be aware that it’s criminally short. On the bright side, Episode 2 is quite a bit lengthier, so playing the two back-to-back makes for a much more fulfilling experience. Playing Episode 1 on its own is akin to only reading the first few chapters of a book, familiarizing you with new characters and new shades of familiar characters, only to have the story cut off right as the interesting plot twists begin.
