Overlord is a great overall experience with an interesting story and a emotional ending that is one of the highlights of this DLC . You can ride the Hammerhead which is the successor to the Mako vehicle of the first game . It only took me about 93 minutes to finish the whole DLC , but it is highly recommended you play Overlord.
Like Stolen Memories, though, Overlord is a short-lived experience with plenty of familiar elements. Two-or-so hours of gameplay is a little slim for the price, though the quality of the content ultimately speaks for itself.
I very much enjoyed the thought and balance that obviously went into the creation of this new mission, and as a true Mass Effect fan, this attempt to return to form is probably the most welcome thing I could possibly imagine.
Mass Effect 2: Overlord feels like a glorified side mission. However, that doesn't stop it from being good. You get to use the Hammerhead to "explore" the planet (not to the extent of the planets in ME1) and go to your objectives. The content is rather short, but the real highlight of the DLC is the story, and the absolutely amazing ending, which is quite emotional.
Is it worth buying? Absolutely. At 560 Microsoft Points (7 dollars) you get a bit more gameplay and a great story to experience.
A pretty good piece of DLC. Story content is good and the locations are very scenic and well done. Plus it allows you to play with the M-44 Hammerhead a bit more in an open environment. My only complaint is that the indoor combat doesn't really add anything new, aside from locations. No new enemies types which it had the opportunity to present, it was a science station after all. Overall: A pretty good DLC worthy of purchase.
Pas mal ce DLC, il m'a fait penser à celui de Mass Effect 1 (Turbulences à 900 000 pieds), il est construit selon le même schéma sauf qu'ici ce n'est plus le Mako mais le Hammerhead qu'on "pilote"... une très nette amélioration à cet égard d'ailleurs : maniable et agréable, il est tout ce que le Mako n'est pas et n'a jamais été.
Bien que l'histoire de "Suprématie" soit très banale, on s'y plonge sans se forcer malgré un début de prime abord assez peu engageant. Mais la tension va crescendo tout du long jusqu'à la conclusion assez spectaculaire à dire vrai.
Graphiquement, en quelques mots : tout simplement magnifique. Mais on le sait, depuis Mass effect 2, Bioware maîtrise bien le moteur Unreal tout en y ajoutant sa patte artistique reconnue depuis longtemps. Du beau travail.
Decent bit of DLC. Gameplay was good and story was intersting aswell. Not too long, but im not a fan of overly long games anyhow. Interesting twist story with moral dilemma. worth buying and playing if your after paragon/renegade points etc.
