Diehard GameFAN: Mass Effect 3: Omega Review

DHGF: If you’re looking for something deep and meaningful to add to the Mass Effect 3 experience, look elsewhere. Omega is an action movie in a DLC expansion. While it has some interesting characters, we don’t get to know anyone but Aria all that much more, you’re off on your own with Shepard so don’t expect your own squadmate banter, Oleg isn’t as interesting as he was in the comics and is reduced almost to a villainous cliché, but hot damn this was fun anyway. Taking back Omega is as bombastic as you could expect, with Aria tearing back into her home with a vengeance and purpose, making good on her statements that she’s that bad ass. We finally get to see a female Turian, and not only is she as bad ass as Aria, but she sets the bar pretty high, for as little character interaction as we get with her, you feel for what she’s going through. This is definitely for fans who like the action in the Mass Effect series, as this will have no bearing on the end game like Leviathan did, but will give you War Assets, weapons and mods if that’s your thing. If you’re sick of fighting Cerberus in the game, this is also an easy pass. I thought it was money well spent for me in my game play through, but I could easily see other fans passing it by.
