Excellent Game(s)jesferkicks | Aug. 19, 2014 | See all jesferkicks's reviews »
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.

From the creator's of acclaimed RPGs comes a gripping, immersive saga staged around Commander Shepard and crew as they journey through a galaxy drenched in mystery and suspense. The story is top notch with great voice acting and consequential player choices. Party members each have unique personalities which adapt to the player's alignment and interactions. The universe and environments are wonderfully built throughout the entire trilogy. The combat can be feel standard in some instances, and combat customization changes some between ME1 and ME2, but the ability to customize your loadout effectively is still present and the gunfights are still enjoyable. When nearing the end of Mass Effect 3, I highly suggest downloading Bioware's free Extended Cut DLC before finishing. It clears up most confusion and any frustrations the player might have. Overall, a fantastic game. You will not regret playing it!
One of my favorite gaming experiences ever!BigPaxDaddy | Feb. 16, 2014 | See all BigPaxDaddy's reviews »
I have never played Mass Effect but I played Mass Effect 2 and 3 and they are some of the most fun gaming experiences I've ever had. Mass Effect 2 might be one of the top 10 best games ever made. It's story draws you in and engages you from start to finish. Mass Effect 3 while the story isn't as strong, the gameplay is much improved over Mass Effect 2. Both are lovely looking and sounding games and suck you into the setting with ease. I would highly recommend this if you can find it on sale (even if you can't but if you can it's obviously better)

This package contains the Mass Effect Trilogy. A great RPG that have story and gameplay all in one. The game provide a deep character progression in each installment of the game giving the player a sense of deep RPG element. The story is done top notch and the actions provided in each of the game will not disappoint any action fans since it will never feel like you are playing another generic shooting game. In addition, the 3rd installment also have multiplayer mode that allows co-op play as well as DM form of play. This is a must get no matter you are a RPG fan or action fan and you will not be disappointed.
Best Sci-fi RPG ever madespycid | Sept. 10, 2013 | See all spycid's reviews »
The Mass Effect series is a true space opera full of interstellar battles, irreversible decisions, sprawling story-lines and so, so many defining moments. The events of the trilogy could fill twice as many games and novels as there already are.
The first game introduces you to the universe, characters and concept of Mass Effect which is easy to comprehend even if you are not a science fan.
The second one is a well successor to the original one and keeps you glued till the end.
The third one draws an epic conclusion which some might not feel justified or liked by many but still it truly sticks to the things which made the franchise famous.
This trilogy does not contain all DLCs, but it will definitely not break the storyline of the trilogy and you will not miss a thing even if you don't play the DLCs.
