IGN: Mass Effect: Pinnacle Station Review

Pinnacle Station is uninspired, poorly constructed, and offers none of what made Mass Effect a great game in the first place. Skip this, lest you want to sully your anticipation for Mass Effect 2.

meh..expected..just like fallout.. good core game but the extra content blows

swiftshot933159d ago

some of the fallout DLC was awesome though. Broken Steel and point lookout were especially great.

Numark3159d ago

yea, exactly. Fallout 3 did have some GREAT DLC. I even really enjoyed operation anchorage. But DLC such as mothership zeta wasn't very good. The first DLC for mass effect (bringing down the sky) was really good.

I miss the feeling of buying a completed games like we used to get.
It seems back in the olden days, games had more content to explore due to the lack of DLC or online play.

Argh, Bioware. No story? NO STORY?!

This is what pisses me off about these hybrid games. ME (and F3 for that matter) is a RPG-- NOT a shooter. I don't want to play goddamn "combat scenarios" with no plot-- and in a game with only 'serviceable' battle mechanics. I can enjoy the battle system but we all know, like F3, it is not a pure shooter. So stop pretending it is.

The strength of this game was never in its combat, it's the story-telling ability and expansive lore. Focus on providing content that expands that. Being veterans of the industry, Bioware should already know this.

I'll wait for other reviews. I don't have a clue who Pinnacle Station is. I'm not expecting to be blown away anyway, I just want to have a little extra fun with Mass Effect before Mass Effect 2 comes out.

Perhaps I'm misunderstanding your post, but Pinnacle Station is the name of the DLC. The review is from IGN.

JonnyBadfinger3159d ago

i havent played it yet so i cant say but if its a bit low on story, that would be ok with me. Since the main game is extremely dialog heavy, which isnt a bad thing.

But i think ill give it a miss, just setting myself up for ME2

obviously mass effect 2 is where the major fun is going to be at.

i think bioware should take the two DLCs and combined them.

Peter North3159d ago

Stop spinning you're making me dizzy.

NewZealander3159d ago

ok so i wont be getting this then...

air13159d ago

yea i thought this would be a skip.

why would they even put this out?

Transporter473159d ago

i never thought anything that has to do with mass effect could rate this low...
