Title
It's bad.

Everything from the bad unlocks (unlock a half soul heart for resetting 7 times in a row) to the dumb achievements ("Marathon" requires you to play the daily challenge for 30 days straight) and the new final bosses are bad.

The new items are pretty cool, but there's just not enough of them to justify the price tag on this. My personal favorite is Jacob's Ladder which adds lightning strikes to your tears. There are other quality of life improving items like Equality which will spawn both an angel and a devil room when completing a floor.

The Void is a lazily made piece of content. All it does is take rooms from prior floors and connects them into one giant floor. I like the gimmick of having multiple fake boss rooms, it feels like the only thing that was well thought out on the entire floor. The new boss on the floor "Delirium" is terribly made. It transforms into most of the bosses into the game while shooting bullet hell tears. It sounds pretty sweet in concept but in play it doesn't work in the slightest. You constantly get telefragged, bosses move way too fast to be handlable and he has an insane amount of super armor*.

Greedier mode is a lot of fun. It's hard but it's fair (to an extent). It provides the challenge that the regular greed mode didn't provide for most players. It challenges you and makes sure you're a skilled player before you can fight Ultra Greed and his new phase. Speaking of Ultra Greed's new phase, it's horrendous. He now shoots lasers out of the wall, spawns an unhandlable amount of bomb coins and almost everything explodes. It puts you in situations of unavoidable damage and it's really not fun to fight. You'll die to him a lot and it's just something you'll have to get used to.

They've been patching the game on a regular basis and been fixing the problems that the games contain, but it shouldn't have launched with these problems at all.

*Yes, there's still super armor on bosses and yes, it's still super dumb.

Title
No
Ultra Greedier is a bullshit boss
Delirium is a bullshit boss
The void portals are bullshit enemies
The inflation of the item pool with even more useless items is bullshit.
Stat upgrades rarely drop anymore, its not fun.

Dying is frustrating, winning doesn't feel rewarding. This DLC is a disappointment in every way possible.

    Got my Switch and BOTW on midnight release, went back to Gamestop after sleeping to grab this just to distract me from finishing BOTW too soon. I ended up barely touching this at all lol (Shovel Night did better to keep my attention, fwiw)
