Is Pinnacle Station worth playing?

#1 Posted by Dross (349 posts) -

I'm playing through Mass Effect for the first time.  I just finished Bring Down the Sky and enjoyed it quite a bit, but I hear bad things about Pinnacle.  Oh and if I don't play it will it affect my Mass Effect 2 playthrough?  Thoughts?

Pinnacle Station isn't really too much to write home about, and this is coming from someone who considers Mass Effect his favorite game ever made. It's just basically a tournament type deal where you have to beat scores and get an easy 150 achievement points. Even for a massive Mass Effect fan it's kind of throwaway, but at the same time I'm glad I bought it.
I don't think it has anything affecting ME2, it might affect ME3 though. Who knows.

It's all combat scenarios which were not ME1's best feature. It doesn't link to ME2 in anway either so I wouldn't recommend it.

So it's the Mad Moxxie of Mass Effect?  I think I'll pass.  Thanks for the advice.
