This DLC nay deserve a better review than the game itself.
IMO, Dungeon Defenders, the main game itself, deserves a mixed review.
It's allegedly a tower defense, but mostly becomes a mindless grind.
The Barbarian, though, makes no pretense of towers and long-term strategy,
so you get exactly what you bargain for.
If you're tired of the mindless grind getting boring, and want a slightly
more interesting to way to shut off your brain and beat the heck out of
stuff up close and personal, rather than spinning in place and firing,
this DLC is the way to go.
On the other hand, if you are grinding XP or mana, or want to help a friend,
the Barbarian's combat really doesn't seem to be able to compete with the
effecctiveness of ranged weapons... so the promo about "help your friends"
and "do more damage" is pretty wrong.
The descriptions of the stances seem leave out the fact that every one of them
has a downside, and although I'm certainly no expert on his use, normal seems fine
rather than picking a stance that either reduces your damage, attack speed, or ability
to survive damage.
