For me, Aftershock has simply proven that I’m not going to enjoy Ion Fury no matter how hard I try. My main issues with the game are hard to nail down, but the reality is that it’s just about everything. It’s a game of highs and lows, which just makes an aggravatingly coarse surface. That feeling carries over to the Aftershock expansion. The Build Engine just isn’t enough for me to completely overlook its flaws.

Ion Fury: Aftershock brings a generous amount of content to Voidpoint's boomer shooter, assuaging some of the issues of the base game and keeping all of its virtues. The new stages, weapons, and enemies bring a breath of fresh air while keeping the nostalgic structure intact and more pleasant. Even if some small issues persist, Aftershock is an expansion recommended to fans of the genre.

Ion Fury: Aftershock‘s road to release was long and, at times, seemed uncertain. Now, after numerous delays, I’m happy to report that this expansion was well worth the wait. Developer Voidpoint and 3D Realms have succeeded in delivering fans an explosive, feature-rich update with tons of stages to explore, new enemies to butcher, and a sleek new ride to help them get around its cyberpunk world. Throw in a soul-crushing new difficulty setting and an arranged mode that breathes new life into the original release, and there’s never been a better time to step into Bombshell’s combat boots and gib some techno cultists.

Ion Fury: Aftershock is a DLC that will hardly manage to evangelize those who were in doubt but that, undoubtedly, will satisfy fans who want a little more of the same. A DLC that keeps the good things from the original game, but misses the opportunity to evolve in certain aspects.

Ion Fury: Aftershock is a must-play expansion for fans of the base game. Superior level design, better level variety, faster paced campaign, more firepower, more enemies, the awesome Road Ripper and the Arrange mode make Aftershock a noticeable improvement over Ion Fury. Those are some big enough reasons to grab the expansion at full price.
