Mass Effect - Bring Down the Sky Review @ bit-tech.net

by Magerette, 2008-03-16 16:29:32

Bit-tech.net does a review of the new downloadable content pack for Bioware's XBox 360 version of their space RPG, Mass Effect, giving Bring Down the Sky a score of 7/10:

There are good moments in Bring Down the Sky though: the Batarian hell dog things will have you whimpering in fear as they charge towards you, fangs gleaming in the light. There are also a couple of very interesting choices to be made throughout the episode which are not as clear cut as some choices in the main game. Whether or not these choices come back to haunt you remains to be seen.

I'm giving this one the benefit of the doubt. There are flaws, least of not allowing you to just jump in and play the episode if you've already completed the main game, but it does do what BioWare set out to do: it adds new characters and new conflicts to the whole story arc, and I hope that we'll be seeing more of the Batarians in future episodes.
