It’s time to wrap things up as the final DLC for We Happy Few aims to add a sense of closure to the game. We All Fall Down follows Victoria Byng who is on a mission to rid Wellington Wells of the psychedelic drug Joy. The goal is to free the people, but in doing so she will open their eyes to the horrors that surround them.
It’s a fairly lengthy journey that uses a compressed space quite well as you deal with the Bobbies and the citizens. You’re equipped with a powerful whip, and gain some fun tools along the way. Most of this expansion is about swinging, whipping to higher points and battling through areas to complete missions. It felt strangely like Bioshock Infinite, and was alright.
It wasn’t the most exciting of experiences, but it does provide a good way for this game to wrap up. There are some special items to collect in order to gain better abilities, though this is light as you could imagine with this being a DLC. Things aren’t great anymore in this town, and it’s time for you to shed a light upon the dark mask that joy has provided for people over the years.
We Happy Few We All Fall Down is a generally solid conclusion to the overall experience and worth it for those wanting to get a full sense of closure on this messed up town. Victoria is an interesting character with a good build-up around her as the plot progresses. I wish there was more depth to her, they could have dove into her history a bit more.
They did do a good job of defining her past, and the connections to this area through some special mental appearances. The whip was fun, but this did make some elements of this repetitive. It’s nice that you get options for stealth, or to just run through things as you have some tools for fast movement. I did find some of the areas a bit vague in terms of what you’re meant to be doing.
