BioWare’s final DLC for Mass Effect 3, the Citadel, has received favorable reviews and been enjoyed by many gamers. PC Gamer gave it a 90 out of 100, and they commented, “It’s affectionate and playful – frivolous, almost.”
The DLC is available for 1200 Microsoft Points or 1200 BioWare Points, and it is $14.99 on PSN.
The premise of the Citadel DLC is that Shepard and his or her crew get to take shore leave on the Citadel. The reasoning why Shepard is inclined to go there is the message the player will receive after purchasing the DLC.
It brings back all of the characters from the previous games, if they’re still alive, and Urdnot Wrex is available as a party member. Last time he was an available character was in the original Mass Effect game.
Seeing the return of Wrex was an exciting element by itself, but the rest of the DLC is what makes it so wonderful.
The antagonist that drives the plot is an unknown enemy, who is seeking to kill Shepard for an equally unknown reason. Shepard becomes exasperated, but at this point no less can be expected.
The lighthearted tone that PC Gamer talks about is even present in an extremely dire situation in which Shepard is made to realize out that he or she says, “I should go,” almost all the time.
It really bothers them that much to just forget about all of the danger that they were in.
After the trouble is over, however, Shepard can have some real fun. There is an arcade and a casino for the player to blow their money on, and to be blunt— what else is it to be spent on?
Unfortunately, nothing BioWare touches can be complete without trying to incite tears. Extra content has been produced for love interests and friendships with the characters.
A note to the female Shepard players: Do not romance Thane.
The Citadel DLC is really a tribute to the friendships that Shepard has built throughout the games, and it was so good that it would have been a viable ending to the series. BioWare has done very well with this final addition to the series. It is a must play for all Mass Effect fans.
