Did you to last all of the waves of enemies when there was that plot twist at the station? And try and wait for the timer to run down, too, or find a video of it on Youtube
Sorry that one lost me, but if you're asking if I saw the cutscene before leaving the asteroid, yes I did. Though I don't know about waiting for the time to run down as it took me that long to get rid of all the enemies

Edit - Did you mean letting the timer countdown to zero? No I didn't but I did see the YouTube video

Without giving too much away, it's when you get to the "Project", and you start getting attacked. I got annihilated at first, lol, but second play through I managed to survive and get the achievement.

Overall I enjoyed it and thought it was good. Could have done with some more paragon options, and maybe some more options that had a bigger affect on the outcome, like all the big options you could choose still lead to the same outcome.

Good points are it gives a good insight in to ME3. It is a must for ME fans, and can't complain at the price of it.

Gripes I have with it, but doesn't really affect what I think of it is when in the timeline does it really take place? Like how long after finishing the main story in ME2 does it happen? I'm gonna guess and say you can't do this until you've finished the game (I've not tried), or then it would be even more confusing. If you started the Shadow Broker at 2 different points in the game, you got different dialogues from Liara. Unless it's the same with Arrival, I haven't tried doing it pre-suicide mission, yet.

But yea, can't really complain. Breathes more life in to ME2 and gives more anticipation until ME3.

To me the Arrival should be the last DLC played in the Mass Effect 2 game as its obviously a prelude to Mass Effect 3

As for Shadow Broker - Id probably play that at the end of the main game as well since you have those dossiers, but definitely before "The Arrival"

Very disappointed by arrival myself.
The difficulty was challenging enough, but nothing new is revealed no new weapons unlocked...
...and it's all fairly straight forward, aside from being rushed playing as a solo Shepard with no squad there was really nothing to it.

Overlord was a way... way better dlc.
If for some reason you still haven't played overlord I suggest grabbing it instead of this garbage.

I’ll agree that it wasn't nothing exciting, but it wasn't bad either, and there were some challenging moments; but overall it's not better than......

- Lair of the Shadow Broker
- Overlord
- Kasumi's Stolen Memories
