Hey guys. So I felt weirdly compelled to jump back into Mass Effect 1 after completing 3. Have any of you guys played the DLC or know whether it's worth playing? Does it carry into ME2 like Shadow Broker and Overlord did into 3? Thanks in advance guys.

The ME1 dlc was shit. I wanted to S rank this game, but I refused to buy another DLC after getting the first.

I am currently playing through Mass Effect 1, but only have done the Pinnacle Station DLC. It's a disappointing combat arena. :( I don't know if there is anything important enough to have bring onto ME2 - 3.

I still haven't played Bring Down The Sky, but it's like 1$ on XBL so just get it.

Bring down the sky isn't awful.

Never played Pinnacle station, but it sounds awful and that's what the majority seems to think.

Bring down the sky is alright. Nothing amazing, but it does have story and is kinda interesting. Plus, as mentioned, it's just 80 points now. Pinnacle Station, on the other hand, is pretty much pointless.

Bring Down the Sky does carry over into ME3, and depending on what you did the strength of a fleet and the difficulty of recruiting them changes, from what I understand. 
Pinnacle Station is a combat arena which doesn't carry over at all into the other games, I think, but it is place to get some extra XP. 
 
So, none of them are really essential, but BDtS does at least have a small impact on ME3.

Bring down the Sky carries into ME3. If you let the terrorist go so you can save the hostages, he comes back in 3.

Bring down the Sky is great stuff, the rest not so much.

Bring Down the Sky was cool, but Pinnacle Station, well....Avoid that one like the plague!
