Just finished Lair of the Shadow Broker and Arrival...2 questions...

#1Raze_da_KitsunePosted 11/18/2012 5:07:04 PM
Is there ANYONE who liked Arrival other than me? All I've heard about it are bad things. I simply loved it. Shepard on a badass solo mission to rescue some Alliance SOB and then things just go bad. My only gripe is that I think Ashley/ Kaiden should've been a partner here.

Are the ME3 DLC as good as the ME2 DLC? I've played all of the ME2 and I thoroughly enjoyed all of them.

ME3 DLC is great!

From Ashes & Leviathan are a must get for content & story insight.

Omega(out on the 27th) looks to more content driven(like Shadow Broker in ME2) then story driven.

Arrival was enjoyable for what it was, nothing but BANG BANG BANGITY BANG.. and so on.

I liked Arrival, personally. Granted the stealth mode could have been better and the VS suggestion you had sounded really good. My favorite part was when you were outside on the asteroid as it was hurdling towards the Relay.

I liked Arrival it had the most challenging fights in the game and it let me tell off harbinger.

Arrival wasn't great, but I enjoyed it ( all the times I did it). As someone who wanted Shepard going solo only for the line Shepard is tearing us apart, worth its money. Lotsb was great. Its conclusion especially. Ok and Liara visiting the Normandy.

I liked the Arrival for the most part, what I didn't like was them suddenly making the Reapers show up.

I liked both and the solo mission aspect especially the way it removed the problem with Shadow Broker in that they clearly had not brought anyone else back to do VA work apart from Hale, Meer & Hillis.

I thought arrival was alright, but just not as great as overlord and shadow broker.

Arrival was decent in its own right although yeah, everyone got spoiled rotten by LotSB beforehand so it was viewed as disappointing, which I can understand.

Heck, I personally found Overlord to be far superior to Arrival as well, both in terms of content and storyline, so Arrival's arguably the weakest of ME2's SP DLC, but at least it's still more enjoyable than Pinnacle Station IMO.
