  1. If you loved Mass Effect 2 you will certainly like Overlord. Unfortunately it only lasts two hours, but every mission adds new pieces to the overall story.
  2. Yet another inessential and senseless expansion that ignores all the best elements of the original.

    Very solid add-on, though it's not very long (I finished it in about 90 minutes). Despite it's somewhat short length, it's Very solid add-on, though it's not very long (I finished it in about 90 minutes). Despite it's somewhat short length, it's highly playable, and satisfyingly bizarre. It's much darker in tone than any level in the core game, and it features some great psychedelic graphics and mind-f*cks that will make it worth playing through a few times. Highly recommended.

    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.

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.
