Mass Effect 2: Arrival Review

GameBanshee
18 April 2011
  • Conclusion: Arrival is the seventh and presumably final mission-based DLC for Mass Effect 2 . In it, you learn that an Alliance deep-cover operative has been arrested by the batarians for being a terrorist, but that she might have evidence of an imminent Reaper invasion.

Review: Mass Effect 2: Arrival (Microsoft Xbox 360)

Diehard GameFAN

  • Summary: : “Â�Enjoyable”Â� really sums up Arrival as an expansion, actually. While it’s fun for what it is, and it adds some interesting and notable plot points into the game that ties up the link between Mass Effect 2 and Mass Effect 3 , Arrival doesn’t do anything to make it a great investment on its own.

  • Conclusion: The true travesty of the whole narrative is that you end up exactly where you started at the start of Arrival. Bioware only offers up the illusion of morality as they cannot change the coming threat of the Reapers and it cheapens the entire ending in a very insulting manner.

  • Conclusion: Decent shooting does not make for a fitting finale to Mass Effect's second chapter, however--not when prior add-ons have set the bar so high. Compared to what has come before in this universe, Arrival is a husk--outwardly familiar, yet lacking the character and careful construction that give Mass...
  • Pros: Atmospheric environments, The action is entertaining.
  • Cons: No real decisions to make, Glitches and other execution flaws, No memorable dialogue or characters.

  • Summary: El fin de la galaxia se acerca
  • Pros: Buena forma de cerrar Mass Effect 2. Marca el paso y el tono de Mass Effect 3. Jugar solo es un nuevo modo de dificultad.
  • Cons: Más corta que otras historias.

Mass Effect 2: Arrival

4 April 2011
  • Conclusion: Kaikille kolmelle alustalle julkaistu lisäosa lupaa sitoa yhteen kakkosen lopun ja tulevan kolmososan alun. Tämä noin seitsemän euron panostus jää kuitenkin kauas lupauksistaan, eikä edes pelaa pelisarjan vahvuuksilla. Tarina pyörähtää liikkeelle amiraali Hacketin ottaessa yhteyttä.
  • Pros: Mass Effect
  • Cons: Ei tiimiä, ei valintoja

Test : Mass Effect 2 : Arrival (Xbox 360, PS3, PC)

Game Blog
30 March 2011
  • Summary: L'invasion des Reapers dans Mass Effect 3 eut été plus rapide sans l'action de Shepard dans le DLC Arrival pour ME2. Le petit pont entre les deux jeux est vite torché, avec un scénar « mouaif » (un astéroïde avec des propulseurs, je n'ai pas déjà vu ça ?) et la part belle à l'action, parfois corsée.
  • Pros: Une petite dose de Mass Effect
  • Cons: Inutile à tout point de vue

  • Conclusion: Som sÃ¥ mÃ¥nga andra gÃ¥nger börjar det med ett anrop. I Mass Effect 2: Arrival gör Admiral Hackett comeback och frÃ¥gar efter Shepards hjälp. Hacketts vän Dr. Amanda Kenson har blivit tillfÃ¥ngatagen av ett gäng batarianer och hÃ¥lls i ett fängelse pÃ¥ planeten Aratoth.
  • Pros: Utgör en komplett brygga till Mass Effect 3, sedvanligt bra action, rafflande slut
  • Cons: För kort
