Summary: It’s been a while—over seven years, in fact—since Mass Effect was first announced. At the time, it was being pitched as a classic 1970s sci-fi flick that you could play. Your decisions, they said, would have dramatic effects on the final outcome, and your progress would transfer between games—a pretty unique concept at the time.
Summary: Omega is the second of the “post-Extended Cut” bits of single-player DLC for Mass Effect 3 . The series and the community that has been built up around it have been taken on a wild ride over the past several months. There’s been a lot of exciting bits and a few disappointments. Unfortunately, Omega can take its place among the latter.
Summary: Citadel is in my humble opinion by far the best piece of post launch single-player DLC for Mass Effect 3. It does a great job of wrapping up the trilogy. After playing it, I now feel like I’m ready to close the series out where I didn’t feel I had that closure with all of my teammates before. If you are only getting one piece of the post-launch DLC for this series, Citadel definitely should be that DLC. It gets a fantastic 10 out of 10.
Pros: Get to use everyone in your squad, Tons of little nods/easter-eggs that fans of the series will love, Adds a couple of terrific new weapons
Excerpt: Coming exactly a year after the release of the main game, Citadel is the final piece of single-player DLC for Mass Effect 3, meaning it’s likely the last chance to spend some time with Commander Shepard and his crew. Is it a warm send-off, or should they have taken an earlier retirement? It all begins with a message from Admiral Hackett commanding you to take shore leave at The Citadel so some maintenance can be done on the Normandy.
Excerpt: Mass Effect 3: Omega asks Shepard to reunite with a sketchy ally named Aria, a sort of space kingpin, and return to the universe’s version of Mos Eisley, a den of iniquity called Omega. Aria’s request is a modest one: to liberate the place of the Cerberus troops garrisoned there, by any means necessary.
Summary: Overall, I thought Omega was excellent. It’s definitely my favorite piece of DLC so far for Mass Effect 3 . It has everything: terrific battles, suspenseful moments, great story telling and a tearful moment for me as I was nearing the end. While it does seem a bit expensive at first glance, that isn’t enough to keep it from getting a stellar 9 out of 10.
