Review | Maneater Truth Quest DLC

LifeisXbox’s ‘Maneater Truth Quest DLC’ review | A little over a year after its release, it’s time to return to the world of Maneater. The reason? Try Truth Quest, the new DLC for this game developed by Tripwire Studios and published by Deep Silver. It’s important to know, that to access this DLC you need -in addition to buying it- to have finished the main adventure. Once that’s done, then yes, you can jump right into Truth Quest.

This is a short review, our usual the good, mixed and the bad was difficult because of the nature of this game.

When we thought that, after the credits screen, the difficulties had ended for our protagonist – a shark with all kinds of extraordinary abilities -, it turns out that he now faces a new mission: the search for the truth – hence the name of the DLC- behind a conspiracy in charge of a New World Order.

The story unfolds in a new area called Plover Island, introducing us to new marine life and rookie enemies with whom we will have to fight. The good news is that in our favor we have evolutions just out of the oven, including an additional organ slot that is activated at level 35. Now 40 is the maximum level we can reach, remembering that in the base game it’s 30.

Among the enemies, we have helicopters, land vehicles and even fish with atomic capabilities, each one generally representing a more complicated challenge than the opponents seen in the original adventure suppose, which is more than welcome.

Perhaps the most useful addition in terms of our arsenal is that we now have a laser, quite useful for attacking enemies from a distance, which was something that our shark was missing at times in his previous odyssey.

Something that is unfortunately still needed is a system to fix our attack on a single enemy. If before it would have been quite good to have this function, now with the appearance of the helicopters it would have served us too much.

In addition to the new story and the mutations that give us more powers, increasing the attack possibilities with them, there is not much else in this DLC. In the end, we end up doing the same four things we’ve already done: eating humans like there’s no tomorrow, fighting marine life, swimming at top speed, and destroying boats.


Maneater: Truth Quest is one of those expansions that generally falls short. It’s not an experience that brings many things to the table, but rather, an opportunity to continue enjoying this “B-series” movie style, and with the particular humor that we already know from this Tripwire proposal.
If you loved the base game and want “a little more”, you will find it here. But only if you plan to be satisfied with “a little”, because it won’t give you much beyond an additional 3 hours of gameplay. is the largest Belgian Xbox-centered website, your reading time is greatly appreciated!
