The bad: the following DLC is missing:
Lair of the Shadow Broker (really good)
Overlord Pack (meh)
Arrival (mainly a solo dlc pack)
Kasumi - Stolen Memory (get to add a new character)
From Ashes (pretty good)
Leviathan (pretty good)
(anything else currently out)
ME3 plays on with all ME2 DlC considered canon and played whether or not you have actually purchased it.
As a player of the entire trilogy, it is hard to recommend this to people new to the series. The only period I would do so is when this is on sale. Also keep a look out if you can buy these separately at a cheaper price, because this collection is no different from buying the games separately.
I purchased this game today (Cyber Monday 2012) thru Amazon (for $29.99 instead of the $59.99 price! Amazon is awesome!) and I activated it on the Origin client. I've never used Origin. The only Digital Game sites I have ordered from have been either Steam or Amazon (& the game required Steam) or Good Old Games (which is DRM-less btw).
On the Origin Store I see that in regard to the Mass Effect games a "points " system is used instead of just stating how many dollars a dlc costs. Strike one. All points systems stink of ripoff imo (I think Xbox uses a point system but I've never played an Xbox before so this method of ripping off customers of a handful of dollars I am not used to).
Here's how much Mass Effect 2 & 3 dlc will cost you in dollars. The dlc that adds to the story of Mass Effect (as far as I can tell) are the folowing (there is a digital comic also being sold but I will not list it since I'm not sure it adds anything to the story):
Mass Effect 2 DLC:
Lair of the Shadow Broker: cost 800 "BioWare Points"
Overlord Pack: cost 560 "BioWare Points"
Arrival: cost 560 "BioWare Points"
Kasumi - Stolen Memory: cost 560 "BioWare Points".
Mass Effect 3 DLC:
From Ashes: cost 800 "BioWare Points"
Leviathan: cost 800 "BioWare Points".Read more ›
I was surprised to find that ME2 & ME3 only comes with a small selection of DLC and not all of it like anyone who buys a trilogy/box set expects, EA really stuffed up on this package, It should have been released only with all the content, instead of pulling a bait and switch just to nickel and dime you for all the missing extras.
Do yourself a favour and wait for this package to hit the bargain bin, or wait for a complete trilogy that has all the DLC included.
With the $10 sale, I felt it was time to finally try this franchise.
The world, characters, and storyline are all lots of fun. I really enjoyed the fact you could customize your Shepard and, in general, the games are fun. Some of the choices you make are really hard, and if you marathon the games, it really does feel like you're going on this big, epic adventure. Bioware definitely pulled out the stops in creating an immersive, emotional experience.
Gameplay is ok. I think I personally enjoyed 2 the most as far as leveling, combat, and using skills.
Overall I would say I'm a fan and loved the first two games. I'll probably give 4 a look and, depending on the reviews, might buy it.
For the first two weeks, Mass Effect 1 was missing a bunch of files which led to crashes when trying to access certain places. Luckily, origin patched the game so it should work now, but was still very annoying.
The game is just the base games, no dlcs. But for the price that is reasonable. I only bought the From Ashes dlc for 3 because it had a semi-important character in it.
Overall, 1-2 are worth playing. This price is great for them and I would say now that the price is back to normal, it's still worth it.
Three is a bit of a glitchy, unfinished mess with some backgrounds not even fully rendered.Read more ›

Game says it comes with all the DLC. IT doesn't. Best to avoid. It's a waste of money.Published 3 days ago by CFGuvera
Worked great, install the direct x version included.

These games are worth five stars (yes, even the third one). The reason I'm giving this three stars is that it doesn't contain most of the DLC for 2 and 3. Read morePublished 9 days ago by Christopher Bohling
