Unmatched Game SeriesPamVakarianN7 | July 14, 2015 | See all PamVakarianN7's reviews »
Mass Effect has no doubt been the best sci-fi game series out there to date, Even for those who have little experience with shooters will have an easy time adjusting to the control schematic as you choose your own class and play it the way you want to play it. What makes it extraordinary are the stories and the vast environments in each game. While a vast amount of people do not like the third game, I believe each succession provides improvement on the last. This trilogy is a must for those with even a slight interest on science fiction and definitely for those who appreciate story driven games. I wish I could give it a perfect score but that is seemingly unlikely. Minor flaws are obviously there but obviously easily overlooked.
The Best Sci-Fi Series out therekoticpaxx | May 28, 2015 | See all koticpaxx's reviews »
There's a special place in my heart for the Mass Effect series, and it's earned it's spot there. Each game improves gameplay. Each game improves the combat system. Each game has the choice of being Paragon or Renegade. Each game, you are able to make Shephard in to your image. Each game has characters you can and WILL love. Each game has characters you will hate. Each game has more formidable foes. Each game has a compelling story to tell. And each game is one of the best I've ever played. Mass Effect: Where it all started. This game introduces you to the universe, and sets up the stage and tone for the following games. Has a great story. Mas Effect 2: Easily the best in the series. Improves overall gameplay significantly, and makes it easier for newer players to jump on. Contains the best story out of all of them, and is quite story-driven. Mass Effect 3: The final one. Improves the combat system. If you like over the shoulder shooters, you'll love the combat in ME3. The story is also good, but many seem to have mixed feeling upon the ending. For me personally, I chose the one that best suited MY Shephard, and was satisfied of the outcome. The Mass Effect Trilogy is one of THE BEST scfi-fi game series out there, and also one of the best game series ever. If you haven't bought it by now, what are you waiting for? You're REALLY missing out.

Mass Effect is a great trilogy. The first game has the downside of being old enough for there to be no graphical options above 1080p, but the story and gameplay mechanics make up for this. 2 and 3 are both newer games and look and play beautifully, even on less that stellar PCs.
Best Sci-Fi RPG to dateShaide | Feb. 12, 2015 | See all Shaide's reviews »
This is an incredible deal on an incredible game series. The Mass Effect saga is perhaps the greatest SciFi saga ever told, with the original Star Wars trilogy a close second. If you are a scifi fanatic, RPG lover or even just someone who enjoys a good story, then this is for you. The price really can't be beat. It's just slightly more than if you just bought one of the games. At least in this bundle you get ALL of them, and let me tell you, once you play one, yer gonna want to play the others. As I mentioned, the games a masterpiece! From start to.....Well, ok the third one is a bit of a let down, but still entertaining. Your choices in the game matter, and carry over from game to game. I have played through this game series at least 4 times, and i'm not even that into RPGs, so I can only imagine how much use hardened RPGers or achievement hunters will get out of this game.

Version 3 was great, getting this for versions 1 & 2. But this page states that Origin's game launcher must be used to launch ME. If so, it would of been nice if they offered a how-to or at least pointed to "how to set up ME to launch in Origin" site/url. That along with a warning, if needed, that not buying this from Origin (btw they have it at the same price) will make it a certified pain in the axx to get loaded. After some of my dealings with EA/Origin on the Battlefield series I'm a little gun shy.
