  1. No matter the reasoning, "Stolen Memory" is something every Mass Effect junkie should own, if not just to justify popping the disk in again.
  2. Sure, it is more of a great game, but for only a couple of hours maximum of game play it hardly seems an appropriate price point.
  3. Kasumi - Stolen Memory is money well spent and a great expansion to Mass Effect 2 that tells the story about the space ninja Kasumi Goto. It really fits in the universe and feels like a natural add-on that all Mass Effect-fans should get.
  4. A fun little mission and Kasumi herself is well written. Too bad that we can't have any real dialogue with her once the mission is over. Also it still feels like cheating to just give us one mission instead of the normal two-part structure we get in the basic game. [May 2010]
  5. Stolen Memories is definitely not big on value, but if you're a Mass Effect fan you'll find it hard to resist. Which is, obviously, what EA are counting on. [July 2010, p.85]

    Kasumi's Stolen Memory is a great little quest, but for most the "little" part will be a sticking point. At roughly an hour in length, this is one download that doesn't offer a lot of bang for your buck.
  7. Honestly, Kasumi's Loyalty Mission isn't that great. Also, you're only getting about an hour and a half (max) of additional content. At least the extra goodies and crew member are solid.
  8. With only a couple of minor decisions to be made and just a short shootout section there's no significant replay value to KSM, but you do get a marginally improved SMG, a stealthy, lethal companion and a snazzy new casual outfit to strut around the Normandy in. [July 2010, p.79]
  9. The combat is fun and the references are clever, but this incredibly short downloadable add-on lacks character.
  10. Nothing more than a disappointing distraction.
  11. An absolute disappointment when compared to the expectations that are attached to DLC packs that are this expensive. Kasumi – Stolen Memory needed to be longer and provide more back-story to the troubled thief.
  12. Short and uninspired, Kasumi surpass in quality other Bioware's downloadable contents but remains far away from Mass Effect 2 quality level.
  13. If you are just playing (or replaying) through Mass Effect 2, then grab this DLC and inject the added content into your adventure. But if you have been done with the game for a while, a lone new Achievement, an added team member, a very short new mission, and a scrap of new loot may not be enough for extended service aboard the Normandy.

    I really like Kasumi and this mission it's good to have her all to myself and apart from her introduction on board the Citadel you never get to talk to her except in auto dialogue which is a shame,anyway I like this as it's not all about shooting,you can actually walk around taking in the views as well,it would have been nice if it was longer,but it made a pleasant change and you get an excellent SMG as well,this by far is my Favourite DLC but all ME2 content is better than the final game in my opinion.

    This review contains spoilers, click full review link to view. I loved this dload.
    It was different than the main game and other dload, in the sense that you didnt have to kill everything and anyone to some degree.
    Alot of alternative options, do surveilance then distract guards.
    1st playthrough I went for a more sneaky route, I thought but ended up killing a ton of guards, 2nd play I inspeceted all the surrondings and managed to trick a guard --> 0 bullets fired.

    The SMG you get as a reward is alot of fun.
    Kasumi is a rather likeable companion, she's like a Robin Hood of ME.

    Main drawback is that its rather short, scenery is awesome but since the explore options are limited to watching a beautiful panaroma it dont offer enough.

    Given price vs fun-value I still rate it very highly

    It was short but this was absolutely the best DLC for Mass Effect 2. I cannot say enough about Kasumi and her abilities. Her personality was so awesome. My ONLY disappointment was that she didn't have a deeper dialogue options like the rest of you squad members. I whole-heartedly hope that Kasumi will return for Mass Effect 3! Full Review »
