Story: Learn how Jetstream Sam joined Desperado.

Good or Bad Story?: The story is not bad, its serious and Sam will at times throw some remarks to make you laugh a bit. But I would have preferred this be an origin story of how he became Jetstream. G00D!

Graphics: It looks just like the main game since you go through the same levels. Besides that there is nothing new that will blow you away.

Audio: The music is epic and awesome, nuff said. The voice acting is good with Sam and other returning characters being voiced by the same actors from the main story.

Gameplay and Features:

Good: Jetstream Sam DLC follows the same core mechanics as the main game, so you have combos done by mixing light and heavy attacks, parries, lock on, sub-weapons, items, vr missions, dodge, jump, dash, stealth, boss fights(3 and their bosses that Raiden fights), and blade mode. But Sam also has things that Raiden and Blade Wolf don’t have like an air dash, double jump, a chargeable heavy attack, and a taunt that will enrage enemies. Beyond that there is not much else to say about the DLC, but except this of all the 3 playable characters in Rising, Sam is the most difficult character to play.

Bad: The camera is once again a problem in fights as it moves around too much and it also positions itself in certain parts when fighting. And do to Sam fighting like a samurai, he won’t stealth kill anyone.

Overall: Jetstream Sam DLC is not bad, better than Blade Wolf’s DLC, but it doesn’t capture the same awesomeness that you get when playing Raiden. I really wished this was an origin story of how he became the person he is now. So if you want more action for MGR than give Sam a chance.

And on a side note Sam’s DLC cost more than Wolf’s DLC when both are the same length and I don’t know why is that?

Likes: Graphics, Story, gameplay, music, voices.

Dislikes: No stealth kill, camera.

Wishlist: Better camera, stealth kills.

Score: 4/5 G00D BUB!

Recommended for fans of: Action, MG, DMC, Konami, Platinum, Wolverine, Samurais.
