It’s been awhile since Mass Effect 2 and I have been together. It’s good at luring me back whenever new downloadable content is released but otherwise I’ve moved on. The past few bonus missions were interesting and played with the mission structure of the core game, but Arrival feels like a giant step back.
I absolutely adore Mass Effect 2, and almost everything about it, but by the end of the game the patterns we’re becoming apparent. Get off ship, shoot some dudes, dialogue, shoot some more dudes, discover culprit, hunt down said culprit, more shooting, dialogue, boss battle. Arrival is about an hour and a half of that.
