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?

I thought so, It was'nt that expensive, only $5, and it added a little more to gameplay.

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.

Definitely worth it, but a little short.

As many others have said, totally worth it!

Just 400 MS Points for more Mass Effect, with Batarians! How could that not be worth it?

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. It was great to finally see the Batarians after reading about them in the first book. It was nice change of pace from finding minerals and corpses that's for sure.

Meh, it wasn't that good. I was expecting something more like Virmire or the other planet missions related to the main story. I liked the extra 50 pts, though.

i won't pay for it but then again i didn't.
i thought that it will be like the story missions but it turns out to be like any other side quests with a generic backdrop.

I got the dlc the day it came out but never got around to playing it. I've beaten the game around 8 or 9 times before I got it, but there were so many more games coming out since then that I never got to finish that side mission.

I still haven't picked it up, but it always seemed like a good deal to me. $5 for 2 hours is fine and if it really gives you insight on the race that the DLC focused on then it's definitely worth it for fans.

A bit short, but it was still fun. I'd say yes.

As others have said I'd expected it to be a little more fleshed out. I liked it but was a little disappointed

It's 25% off now,n so if you haven't picked it up yet I would.

It's a little lean on content, but if you like Mass Effect I would say it's worth the couple bucks it costs.

At it's current price of 300MSP, it doesn't even matter.

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.

LMAO.

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....
