Kasumi or Overlord?
Which DLC should I purchase? (I already have Shadow Broker)
Kasumi offers a squad member who's surprisingly competent in combat since she can cloak and attack from behind.
Overlord is a bit longer and maybe offers more in story and intrigue but on the other hand, there's nothing that makes a permanent mark on your playthrough.
I would go with Kasumi.
Kasumi is a one area mission that nets you a new squad member along with some weapons and other goodies. Overlord on the other hand is a rather lengthy series of missions but in the end doesn't leave you with anything permanent. They're both good but you have to choose which you're looking for.
Or you could just get both.
What do you want from your DLC? If you want something akin to shadow broker in it's structure then get Overlord, if you want a new character and one new loyalty mission get Kasumi.
Be forewarned though that Kasumi is like Zaeed in conversational nature in that you can't have actual dialogue with him he just talks at you.
The only really good DLC is Shadow Broker. And as much as I hate the Hammerhead portions of Overlord, I hated even more how stupid Kasumi's mission was. The game goes out of its way to give Shepard an elegant suit then acts all surprised when Kasumi can't get inside when she's dressed like a freakin assassin!!
Anyways, neither is great, but in my opinion the story and especially the ending of Overlord makes up for the rest.
I'd get Kasumi just because she becomes a party member that's pretty useful.
Overlord was really good though - it drags some in the middle parts but the last half hour when there's a lot of plot stuff it gets fucking brilliant. One of the more intense mission plots, definitely.
