    Bah, I wish it was this cheap when I first bought it. I was so looking forward to the sequel to one of the best games I've ever played and I was really disappointed. I played it for about a week and lost all interest. :(

    Same. I never even did any DLC because I had no more interest. I did hear that the Shadow Broker DLC was really good, though. Maybe when this is $11 on Steam I'll get it and buy a couple of the DLC.

    Wait, if you played it why would you need to buy it again?

    Also, I don't understand how if you guys liked the first how you didn't like this one, I enjoyed it more than the first probably. :D

    I sold my copy of the game right after I beat it for my review. It wasn't on Steam and I was disappointed with the game, so I decided I could just hawk it and wait until it was cheap on Steam.

    You can read about my complaints with the game here:

    Yeap, the second game had a lot of annoying things. Not game-breaking, but annoying.
    Also, the DLC system is silly. You need to purchase BioWare points in order to unlock DLCs; now it would be OK for the most part, but when you have the game without DLC, it's blindingly obvious that it's not the full game - you have locked rooms which should be habitable, references to non-existent vehicles etc. When I buy a game, I expect it to be the full game, not a kinda-sorta-full-but-please-buy-DLCs type. That's just cash milking. At least in the first game, DLCs were DLCs - without them, you don't feel like having a non-complete game, they only added to the game. Although DLCs should be free in the first place...

    Anyway, my review is here:

    I loved it, but didn't play any of the DLC. Wasn't that interested in any of the DLC after I beat it.

    I am hoping for a GOTY Version with all the DLCs included. Hoping the same for Dragon Age.

    Well, the Digital Deluxe version comes with 2 DLCs + Cerberus network which gives you 5 more DLCs, so why can't there be another version with all DLCs?

    Digital distribution happened.

    The upcoming PS3 version is supposed to include either all or at least a good chunk of the DLC from what I've read. If they decide to release it with all of the DLC then I don't see no reason why they wouldn't look into a GOTY edition for the other platforms.
