Critic Reviews for The Surge: A Walk in the Park
Despite not adding anything new to the gameplay of The Surge or providing many rewards to returning players, A Walk in the Park provides more of the wickedly fun combat and detailed environments that we saw in the main campaign. The juxtaposition of the family-friendly funtime setting and technological horror is at times goofy and genuinely chilling, and even with a fairly basic set of objectives, exploring the ruined park was a fun way to spend a few hours back in this world.
The Surge: A Walk in the Park is a more than worthy expansion to the game, offering new challenges as well as new tools to deal with them. Story telling may not be stellar, and no new gaqmeplay mechanics have been included, but don't let these issues stop you from taking this lethal walk through CREO World: it's well worth it.
Overall, "A Walk in the Park" is easy to recommend — if you liked The Surge and you want more of it, that's what you'll get here and you're in for a great time at the theme park. If you couldn't get over the issues in The Surge then there's nothing here that's going to change your mind.
In the end, The Surge: A Walk in the Park feels like it wants to correct the sins of the past, resulting in returning players getting an underwhelming experience. With lackluster armor, easy to defeat foes, a forgettable story and a setting that could've been far more exciting, we're not left with much. Sure, fans will likely enjoy it and it offers a lot for newcomers, even a map for one of the most dreaded sections of the game, it just doesn't do enough to stand out.
The Surge: A Walk in the Park is an enjoyable venture off the beaten path. While it takes place during the main storyline, it has just enough plot and substance to be enjoyable. With new weapons and armor to be had, there's something here for everyone. However, for those who are heavily invested in the game, there might not be enough to warrant the adventure.
