    Is Arrival worth it? Necessary?

    For those who've gotten Arrival, is it worth the money? Is it necessary for ME3? Can it be played after the campaign is beaten?

    Yes it was worth it and yes it can be played after the campaign, and even after the plat. Not sure if it affects any gameplay in ME3, but it was soooo much fun and really shows you what you're up against in ME3.

    Yeah it is...its a prequel to ME3, and it's also really great for playing over and over again.

    I enjoyed the "Arrival" DLC the only downside about it was that in my OWN opinion it was abit expensive for the amount of gameplay you get from it!

    I've had Arrival for quite some time and I haven't gotten around to it. Might start it now that ME3 looms within the distance.

    I enjoyed it, although I was a little surprised that the major decision in it was made for you instead of you deciding for yourself.

    Is it worth the price for the amount of gameplay you get? Probably not. For the story? I'd say it is.

    I personally bought it so that I can get the full experience of Mass Effect 2, and also in anticipation for ME3's release. It also helps that it got me enough experience points to reach level 30 for the Power Gamer trophy. A plat in 1 playthrough

    Yes i would say it is worth the purchase. Infact i purchased all the Mass Effect 2 DLC, including the awesome 'Lair of the shadow broker' DLC. I will most likely do the same for Mass Effect 3.

    I'm guessing you have to finish main story before you can play the Arival DLC. I downloaded it just as I was starting my 2nd playthrough on Insanity and there isn't any new missions on the galaxy map.

    I pretty sure earliest you can play the Arrival DLC is right after the Horizon mission.

    Wait...do you buy it on the 360 or PC because the Lair of the Shadow Broker is included in the PS3 version.
