  1. The second DLC for Mass Effect is not what we expected from the franchise. Just a little warm-up before the launch of the second chapter in the series. Interesting, but quite useless in the greater picture of the galaxy.
  2. Mass Effect: VR Missions would have been a more suitable title for this expansion, and with the repetitive level designs, trial-and-error scenarios and lack of any defining story, you will leave Pinnacle Station with only a new weapon and house to save face from this letdown.

    Pinnacle Station is uninspired, poorly constructed, and offers none of what made Mass Effect a great game in the first place. Skip this, lest you want to sully your anticipation for Mass Effect 2. That's all Pinnacle Station has done for me.

    This is no doubt EA mooching from Bioware's name. This is absolutely not worth purchasing. It is nothing more than shovelware content This is no doubt EA mooching from Bioware's name. This is absolutely not worth purchasing. It is nothing more than shovelware content that is simply training rooms. No narrative, nothing. Just shooting with a few achievements. If you want some achievements, buy it I guess. But games aren't made for achievements. It's 5 dollars, but not worth buying at all. Full Review »

    This is not worthy of the name Mass Effect.

    Pinnacle Station adds in combat simulations on the space station of the same name that the player can participate in. It might have made sensePinnacle Station adds in combat simulations on the space station of the same name that the player can participate in. It might have made sense as part of a larger story DLC but unlike Bring Down the Sky Pinnacle Station on its own just isn't worth the time. It doesn't add anything to the story and what happens is never mentioned in Mass Effect 2 and 3. Full Review »
