Better late than never! The latest piece of DLC for Mass Effect 2, Lair of the Shadow Broker, was released last week. As it is priced at 800 points, more expensive than any of the DLC to date, the obvious question is: is it good enough to be worth 800 points? I mean, for that money I can get a good XBLA game or 2/3rd of a Modern Warfare 2 map pack with rehashed maps!
Luckily, Lair of the Shadow Broker is the best Mass Effect 2 DLC to date. Lasting a little longer than the Overlord DLC and without any of the Hammerhead ‘hunting for artifacts’ time filler, Shadow Broker is perhaps the only piece of DLC you need to play before Mass Effect 3 is eventually released. Read on for a mostly spoiler-less review.
