    The whole package is quite fantastic, but again I have to remind you that it is a bit short.
  2. Fun action, great audio, and multiple memorable moments make Mass Effect 2's latest add-on a winner.
  3. The Overlord Pack for Mass Effect 2 is well spent money and a nice second add-on for Mass Effect 2. A couple hours of varied gameplay.
  4. Regardless how you classify it, everything in this DLC is so exciting to play through, that it doesn't make feel like this an attempt to grab even more money from players.

    Not bad, but nothing special either. This DLC certainly gives a few plus hours of gameplay to the game. The ending is emotionally powerful. Overall: Nothing outstanding, but still an enjoyable extension of the game. Full Review »

    I like this DLC, it feels big and expands on the usual closed-off feel of the rest of Mass Effect 2. As usual, though, this DLC is not essential, but prolongs your game for an hour or two. The story isn't actually that bad, and would have made an interesting sideline in the first game. Full Review »

    Overlord was decent. It was certainly a step in the right direction. I cannot be too negative about it other than saying your squad members were painfully silent. I expect better with DLCs in a game like this. I want squad interaction, party banter, etc! Full Review »
