From a huge fan of the trilogyJeremayhem | April 10, 2013 | See all Jeremayhem's reviews »
I've played all the mass effect games and beaten them several times (on insanity mode no less!) So I know quite a bit when it comes to these games. Now despite what a lot of people say about the ending this game is fantastic. Is it better than the second one? In my opinion, I don't think so but it's still really great. I think the main problem most people had with the games ending was just that. The game ended! I don't think there would be anyway they could have ended this game without upsetting people because man these games are so great I don't think anyone wanted to see them end. I will however say this, I was not 100% satisfied with the ending of vanilla ME3 but the extended cut really does go a long way to smooth things out. I was really pleased with the ending I got for my shepard with the extended cut and thought it was really, really awesome! I won't spoil anything but I thought the control ending was very neat. And of course all of the neat bonuses are also awesome like shepard's hoodie for one.
In conclusion I'd say this, if you've never played mass effect trilogy before now is the time to do so. And don't listen to the negative hype of this game. It's great just in my opinion not the greatest of the 3. It's sad to see the end of such an amazing video game trilogy but still highly recommended game
A good conclusion to the trilogyDaiMonPaul | Feb. 4, 2013 | See all DaiMonPaul's reviews »
If you've played the previous Mass Effect games, then you already know what ME3 is about. If not, then what are you waiting for? The Mass Effect series is a fantastic entry into the Action RPG genre by BioWare, creators of Star Wars: KOTOR and the Dragon Age series, all fantastic games. Mass Effect 3 continues the story of Commander Shepard from the previous games, and I'd highly recommend playing ME1 and ME2 before playing ME3. The game allows you to import your saves from the previous games in the series, and your actions and decisions from the previous games will affect how this game plays out. It's a great system to tie together the trilogy, and it works well.
The game itself is nothing new if you've played ME2, merely more of the same awesomeness. If it ain't broke, don't fix it, right? The major gripe with this game seems to be with its ending, which has received much criticism. The extended cut (which can be downloaded for free through Origin) improves the ending, but it's still not a great and satisfying way to conclude the epic story told in this trilogy. That said, the first 99% of the game is excellent, and if you enjoy RPGs, sci-fi games, action games, or simply want to experience the amazing universe created by BioWare, then this game is well worth your time and effort.
I'd recommend getting the deluxe edition here over the vanilla ME3 edition, if you can. It's an extra $5, but you get the "From Ashes" DLC, which adds to the story and is a must-play for fans of the game. This DLC will run you $10 separately on the BioWare store or through Origin, so that makes this pack a good deal. You also get a lot of minor extras (additional clothing, weapons, etc), plus the soundtrack and art outside of the game are cool additions, although not essential. The amount of content you get overall, though, is well worth the extra money for the deluxe edition.
