    I found this piece of DLC to be very fun. It was not necessarily important to the overall story but did add some fun elements to the overall game, more specifically the squadmate. It was a lot of fun to bring him on mission with various other people to hear his opinions and reactions to the mission or people you talk to. Please don't let the negative views of so many bitter people negatively impact your desire to try this DLC. It's well worth the money. Expand

    I find it depressing when a developer releases a daring game or piece of DLC, because people are so quick to criticise it. This expansion adds something that no other game has. The option to pursue a homosexual relationship in a game! Not many games have the option to have sex in any form, and those that do in every game I know of always go for the man-on-woman option. A developers efforts to include the sexuality of different people should be applauded, not booed and hissed at. This kind of backwards mentality is sad and must stop. (By the way the game itself is grand, touching and an epic conclusion to a saga that deserves full praise) Expand

    626 MB download means the content wasn't on the disc. Nice size expansion and bonus that they've included for real fans who bought the collector's edition.

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

    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.

    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.
