Mass Effect 2 DLC any good?

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
So just did my 1st playtrough an did every mission possible + scanned every plannet in every system, and, even after 37 hours of gameplay i'm craving more really bad. Never usually feel like this after finishing a game. I need more Mass effect NOW !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Is the DLC worth buying?

Also my path got Mordin + Thane killed, not happy about Mordin dieing

It is, but only 37 hours on one campaign? I have 68 hours on one infiltrator, got Miranda and none died. Searched the crap out the milky way galaxy.

Add much more to the story ? Long missions etc?

And no, no idea how to save everyone. But, i'm sure i'll get it over the next few playtroughs so i can have a good save ready to go for ME3.

Yeah 37 hours with not a single thing left to do. I'm really happy with 37 hours of gameplay. Well apart from the fact i fell in love an wanted more lol. Last few games I've beat in just a few hours as im sure you know how games are these days.

Yeah and some extra characters.. If you like the game as much I do, the DLC is welll worth it, I think I've played it 16 times on 2 separate computers .


Now I have to play it again and re-download everything cause I sold my gaming rig.

Lair of the Shadow Broker is the best one.

To save all the crew you have to
1. Beat their loyalty mission
2. Maintain their trust (Miranda vs. Jack/ Legion vs. Tali)
3. Buy all the ship upgrades your crew suggests
4.Choose the right crew for each part of the suicide mission
A. Tali or Legion for the hacking
B. Any powerful biotic for passing the swarm part
C. Anyone with good leadership (I tend to choose Jacob)
D. Send Mordin back with the to ship.

That should save everyone. It's been a while so I don't remember the exact order.

Yeah i simply love the game, Almost a ME fanatic after playing the game lol. Rearly do i listen to every conversation in a game + read every available text. I didn't skip anything and read everything about everything lol.

16 playthroughs and you want another. My god, Bioware need to hire you lol. After that many playthroughs i bet you have some crazy ideas on how to make an epic game more epic lol.

Lair of the Shadow Broker is definitely worth the money. Arrival was a waste of money and time, and the others I got through buying the deluxe version, so can't say the value of those, but I guess they were somewhat enjoyable.

also if you want to save everyone on the normandy, you must do the collector base mission IMMEDIATELY after the last loyalty mission(Legion's).

Samarra or Jack are the best choice for biotic shield through the base, also Mordin has a habit of dying even if he's loyal, send him back as soon as possible

the only fun DLC was the lair of the shadow broker, overlord is a very close second
