I downloaded the 400 point mission and completed it in just under 2 hours. Even though it wasn't that long, I really enjoyed it. So for those of you who bought it, did you think that it was worth $5 to get 50 achievement points?
Was Bring Down the Sky worth it?
"Jedted said:You'd have to be insane not to like the BDtS mission. Atleast it wasn't as boring as some of the other Uncharted World missions.It was totally worth it! I finally got to see the Batarians after reading so much about them in the book.I don't know if we should be listening to people who are obviously insane.
If it was more than 5 bucks, possibly not, but for what it's worth you do get a nice amount of content. I'd say it was about 90 minutes worth. I honestly forgot about the content until I did a second play through and then something made me remember so I went and got it. Now I'm just waiting on some more, and this time I saved before the "no turning back zone."
I thought it was worth it. $5 for 90 minutes of brand new gameplay isn't bad. Of course, the gameplay could have been better. I was hoping for something more similar to a main quest planet, but it turned out to be more like the uncharted worlds that all of Mass Effect's other side quests take place on. But nonetheless, I enjoyed it. It gave me some insight into the Batarian race as well, which came in handy when I read Mass Effect: Revelation.
The story content wasn't anything amazing, but getting to meet the Batarians is nice. Mostly I appreciated the presence of new architecture. Even though it reuses some of the same prefab buildings you see elsewhere, the furniture layout had a very different feel from the other sidequests, and there is a unique building or two in which it takes place. It also managed to throw in some new wrinkles to combat that I don't remember facing elsewhere.
If you liked Mass Effect and intend to play it again, get it. If you didn't already plan to replay it though, I wouldn't recommend finding your disc just for BDTS.
"This is the only correct answer... If Mass Effect had a single flaw it was that the side missions were a bit drab, Bring down the Sky attoned that sin... it will add another hour of cool gameplay as well as introduce you to the beterians and give you a cool side story.
It was worth it. It wasnt long but it was very enjoyable"
"Jedted said:LMAO.It was totally worth it! I finally got to see the Batarians after reading so much about them in the book.I don't know if we should be listening to people who are obviously insane.
I have no idea why that would be considered insane Jedted, but I find it funny.
Anyway yeah it was worth it, Spend $10 in a movie theatre for 2 hours where you are uninvolved and dont know if youll enjoy yourself, or spend half that for the same time of entertainment and know that the content will be adding to a ~20 hour experience which you already invested time in and enjoyed.
If you dont like ME, obviously dont buy it though....
