Is the DLC worth it?

There's like 4 or 5 pieces of DLC, all roughly $7 to $10. Already have a Cerberus Network one at least cause I bought the game new.

What ones are worth it, what ones aren't? I'm kind of digging the idea of Kasumi since it'll add the last piece to the lineup and from what I hear she'll make a cameo in Mass Effect 3 (that's the next stop once I'm tired of ME2). Make the experience all the richer... you know? However minor it is.

Not really sure I even want to do that though. $7 is a bit much for a bonus character and a loyalty mission. No less busting out like $40 total to get all the DLC. Got the whole darn game for $20 new.

Any insight is appreciated. :)
But if the silence takes you, then I hope it takes me too.

Kasumi's Stolen Memory is definitely worth it.

The one I probably had the least fun with was Arrival, but it's still not bad. Overlord and Lair of the Shadow Broker were both excellent missions. If I was going to pick just 2 of the 4, I'd go with Kasumi and Shadow Broker.

Depends on what you're after. If you want story the definitely go for Lair of the Shadow Broker, and probably Arrival. Arrival isn't actually that good but pretty much essential for understanding the events at the start of ME3 as it leads directly into them.

As for the others, Kasumi's is fun and probably worth the cost, doesn't add much to the story, and I really enjoyed Overlord as well even though it didn't add much to the story. Really good reveal/shock at the end. And yes, Kasumi and the characters from Overlord make cameos in ME3 if you played the DLC and depending on your choices.

The Firewalker DLC isn't really needed at all, and is by far the weakest of them.

Lair of the Shadow Broker gives the most achievement points. I'm assuming that it's also the longest?
