Dec 9, 2013Pinnacle 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.
Mar 9, 2013Ouch. You have to ask yourself what went wrong. Was it Bioware's acquisition by EA that forced them to shove this out the window? Pinnacle Station focuses on a Combat Simulator and that's about it. No story, no character interaction, just you going through the simulator, trying to beat high scores to get to the very end challenge which, if you beat it, unlocks you a neat, but ultimately useless, little home on a planet.
Now this could be good if the Mass Effect's gameplay was excellent, sadly it isn't. During the main game, there always was a bit of framerate drops, but they become even more apparent in Pinnacle Station.
Let's say that the DLC is good for two reasons: the reward you get for beating the DLC looks great, and it's a great way to get the skill use/weapon use achievements. If you're willing to spend a bit of Microsoft Points to grind some achievements, you can get it, I guess.… Expand
