  1. I'll recommend Pinnacle Station to anyone who's been through the game at least once or twice and just wants to eke out a bit more fun before the sequel hits, but completionists or those who didn't fall entirely in love with Mass Effect can safely skip it.
  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.
  3. 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.

    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.
  5. Pinnacle Station is not working and is without a doubt an avoidable DLC, despite its relatively low price (400 Microsoft Points). If you cannot wait for Mass Effect 2 might Pinnacle Station may be able to calm your hot spirits, giving you a concentrated dose of all in which have plagued the first chapter of the trilogy.
  6. All things considered, Pinnacle Station is a disappointing addition to Mass Effect.
  7. Pinnacle Station is technically poor and its gameplay is boring.
  8. Mass Effect's latest add-on is an insult to fans clamoring for new content.
  9. I think it's pretty clear that I hold Mass Effect in the highest possible regard, having nothing but the utmost respect and affection for it, but I need to be honest when I say that Pinnacle Station is not only a complete waste of money, it's an insult to Mass Effect itself. I can't imagine why this shoddy cash-in was even released at all, except for a quick infusion of ill-gotten income from all the suckers like me who bought it on faith.

    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 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 »
