NONE of the franchise's large collection of DLC is included in this pack.
Sure, DLC in the first Mass Effect isn't anything special, but for Mass Effect 2 there's bonus levels which directly bridge the gap between it and Mass Effect 3!
When games like Fallout 3, Fallout New Vegas, and The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion released new editions they included all the DLC expansion packs on bonus discs (if you played on Xbox360). At this point I expect that when a big RPG like this are re-released they will include all the DLC as a bonus.
Here's the real kicker. Say you just want the basic Mass Effect experience without the DLC. This set still won't meet your needs because you can buy all three of these games individually for less than $60. Heck, get the Platinum Edition of the first game and you'll at least get one of the DLC missions!
So this set fails on two counts:
1) If you're a new gamer wanting to tackle the Mass Effect trilogy for the first time your wallet would be better off buying the games individually.
2) If you're someone who wanted the definitive Mass Effect experience this set fails to include anything worth warranting a double dip.
So either buy the games individually, hold off until this set is in the $40 range, or wait for BioWare to release the inevitable "Definitive/Collector's/whatever" special edition with all the DLC included.
"On Xbox 360, Bring Down the Sky and Pinnacle Station are not included with Mass Effect, however they are available as stand-alone downloads through Xbox LIVE. For Mass Effect 2, Cerberus Network will be included and Online Pass will be included for Mass Effect 3."
That basically says it all. - Forget about the DLC being on-disk, they don't even give you download codes. The current MSRP ($60) is already more than the cost of the sum of the 3 games separately (shop around). On top of that, to get all of the DLC, you'd need to pay an additional $65 through XBOX Live:
Bringing Down the Sky 400
Pinnacle Station 400
Shadow Broker 800
From Ashes 800
Total 5200 points = $65
This 'Trilogy' isn't a definitive collection in any sense of the word. This compilation is a blatant, lazy money grab. Insulting. Anti-consumer. If they're this desperate to exploit their audience, they could at least put everything on-disk and charge $120. - At least then I'd respect them for being upfront about it - and I'd be able to have everything in one neat package.
I'll close by saying that this is all doubly infuriating because EA and Bioware have done this right in the past! Dragon Age Origins: Ultimate Edition, for example, was everything a Dragon Age fan could've hoped for in one beautiful package!
Note: This review is specifically for the 360 Trilogy SKU and is not meant to be a review of the individual games therein. I'm reviewing the package.
Was at a game stop last night and looked up the prices of the games.
Mass Effect 1, $7
Mass Effect 2 $8
New Mass Effect 3 $14
Do the math and weep if you bought this.
This doesn't include the promotion buy two get one free.
Also, be warned: you WILL become emotionally attached to some (or all) of the squad throughout the series.
