The Wolfpack DLC adds two brand new heists to the game along with a brand new class, the technician. The new heists offer a lot of fun, but are also challenging enough to keep veterans on their toes. The new class also comes with their own new weapons and gadgets, including a grenade launcher and sentry gun, which is pretty impressive. All in all, there’s no reason not to grab this DLC if you are a fan of the game, although the developers have generously included the option to invite friends to the new heists if you own the DLC and they don’t.
Gameplay: Two brand new heists, a brand new class and some new weaponry.
Graphics: Still the same as the base game.
Sound: Not much has changed compared to the base game

Graphics: Same engine obviously, but the twisted locations are great.
Sound: Solid as ever
If you plan on playing this DLC episode in order to get some answers you are in for a disappointment. Alan is still battling his inner demons and in this episode they are out in full force. There are some interesting new ideas but don’t expect too many revelations.
Gameplay: A lot more action packed than the main game.
Graphics: The same as the main game, but the locations are twisted around.
Sound: Still good
With tables based around Back to The Future, Jaws and E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial, the Universal Classics Pinball pack is a must have for fans of the genre. All three of the tables on offer look great and are a lot of fun to play. The table designers have done an admirable job with fusing these licenses with pinball instead of simply using images based on the films. Unfortunately, none of the tables feature licensed music, which is really a pity for films like these that has such iconic soundtracks. However, apart from the music there is very little to fault here and these tables offer a nice break from all the Marvel and Star Wars tables available for the platform.
Gameplay: Three tables with great designs that are a lot of fun to play.
Graphics: Each table features plenty of visual elements from the films as well as some great looking 3D models.
Sound: The sound effects and voice acting are decent enough, but the lack of licensed music is a bummer

Even amongst all the other excellent titles already released for Pinball FX2, this pack stands out.
Gameplay: The Aliens vs. Pinball table is the most fun, but the other two are great as well.
Graphics: Great use of the source material.
Sound: Once again the source material is used to good effect
