Mass Effect: Pinnacle Station
From the Offical Description

Test the limits of your combat prowess aboard a remote, top-secret Alliance space station. Do you have what it takes to hold the top spot amongst the best of the best? This module includes a new land-able space station, 13 exciting combat scenarios, and approximately 2-3 hours of game play. Required: you must achieve Spectre status before embarking on this mission.

What are your thoughts on this barely hyped DLC for Mass Effect? Im downloading it right now but i want to see if anyone else has gotten it yet. The reviews are generally bad but meh im still going to download. I want all achivements on it!

Its not that bad for a Mass Effect DLC however it is probably one of the worst things Bioware has done i think. Less talking more fighting and unless your playing on Casual or Normal its extremly hard! The enemies simply come by to quick and it dosn't seemed balanced in places.

Its has 4 Combat Scenarios and a Special End Scenario

Capture - Take 3-4 points around the map in the shortest amount of time

Hunt
- Kill as many enemies as possible within the time limit. Killing enemies adds time (Team mate kills does NOT add time)

Survival
- Hold out as long as you can

Time Limit - Kill the set amount of enemies in the shortest space possible

End Scenario - Retrieve the data module and hold off for 5 minutes against Turians who have absurd amount of numbers and with hardly any cover

Overall - Its worth it for the $10 and you can get some extra weapons and stuff out of it and the only real trouble is the diffculty you play on.

I'm not really a fan of DLC as a whole so i'm not really sure i'm willing to try this regardless if the reviews were bad or not
