As Saints Row 2 is probably my Game of the Year so far, I recently picked up this DLC pack for it quite enthusiastically.

It's made up of 3 missions, and some other junk - some outfits, a few vehicles including the EDF Scout from Red Faction 2 and a cool Attack chopper vaguely based on a Blackhawk, some clothing, a bunch of Moustaches, and Tera Patrick as a new homie once you finish the mission arc.

Well, the missions are a little longer than the norm, but the first two of them are a little bland. Third one is kinda cool though.
There's a few new Multiplayer maps. - Meh.
Also a "meta-game" in co-op mode, where one of you can get some extra cash for killing more enemies than the other guy, or doing more tricks, or blowing up more stuff. Meant to be a non-intrusive little add on of fun for co-op missions. This would have been good if it were included in the base game initially. As an add-on mode, it's really too little too late.

Tera Patrick is a pretty sub-par representation of Tera. As in, if you're making an actor's likeless a major selling point of a game, or DLC, or anything, try to do a good job, eh?

So, is it worth 800MS points/US$10 on PSN though?

It really repends. If you've just bought SR2 or are only a little way into it, then I do think it'd be a reasonable buy. Especially if you managed to get a discount off the game's RRP to offset the DLC's price. The new vehicles and such add enough cool stuff so that if you were playing through the campaign, it'd be useful.

If, like myself you've already finished SR2, except maybe for a little bit of co-op or some activities, or if you're close to finished, it's really not worth the cash for 3 missions and a few vehicles. Maybe at half the price.

Don't bother.

I just noticed WUA's BG thing is frontpaged. Bump that thing up above this BiiF! - it deserves the top spot way more than this DLC does.

Disappointing, but unsurprising.

Has anyone really been far even as decided to use even go want to do look more like?

As it happens, I recently bought Saint's Row 2 for half price, but haven't started playing it yet.  So the DLC would be worth my while, then?

If you can stomach the cost (it is overpriced), I'd say it would add enough to the overall SR2 experience to make it worthwhile. Access to the chopper (more like a Hind with the front-end of a Bell helicopter than a Blackhawk, actually), the EDF scout and Tera as a homie early on would add enough to the game to make it worth having. Also the co-op metagame.
