    Great for Mass Effect fans wanting more back story then, a little unremarkable for everyone else. [Issue#217, p.83]

    From Ashes is easily the best character-centric DLC the series has to offer. Unlike Kasumi or Zaeed in Mass Effect 2, Javik is a persistent personality, his integration a lot smoother and substantial. With that said, From Ashes is clearly at aimed at those who want to dig deeper in to the rich sci-fi universe. If you're only in it for an extra mission, forking out £7.99 is steep by anyone's standards.

    You don´t need From the Ashes if you think it'll add something relevant to the main plot. If you're looking for some background information, a new squad-member, a fresh weapon and a few war assets as well as outfits, it delivers exactly that.

    Day 1 DLC. Prothean squadmate, on the disc. I don't care if it's not important to the main story. I don't care if you had a separate teamDay 1 DLC. Prothean squadmate, on the disc. I don't care if it's not important to the main story. I don't care if you had a separate team working on it. You had it ready to be released alongside the game and on the disc itself. There is no excuse for this not being free for everyone. Shame on EA. Shame on Bioware. And shame on consumers for still blindly buying their crap and letting EA get away with it. Full Review »

    Day 1 DLC. Way to milk your fans, Bioware, real classy. So the game ends up being $70, really? I never knew a game developer could stoop toDay 1 DLC. Way to milk your fans, Bioware, real classy. So the game ends up being $70, really? I never knew a game developer could stoop to such ridiculously low levels. Bioware, and many others, are straight out killing the gaming community and should be stopped, but they wont. Everyone will buy this **** DLC and eat it up thinking they made a good investment.
