An amazing ending to an amazing trilogy.

Mass Effect 3 was a controversial installment in the trilogy, largely due to how the experience ended. Do not let the hate and negativity dissuade you from what is arguably one of the greatest trilogies ever created. The ending is phenomenal, and in a period where there is no right or wrong choice, and each choice will have profound consequences, it's up to the player to choose how the galaxy will continue.

Mass Effect 3 continues the amazing plot, story, and character development the series has always been known for. All previous companions make a comeback and their stories are rightfully concluded before the ending of the game. Combat is refined and has been expanded, providing new opportunities and choices for the player.

The overall scale of conflict in Mass Effect 3 is absolutely massive and dwarfs anything that was done by its predecessors. This is one ride that will keep you engage, immersed, and ultimately leave you so profoundly moved, you realize you just witnessed something truly special. Above all else Mass Effect 3 is more than just a game. It's a true masterpiece on a variety of levels and just goes to show what is truly possible when amazing storytelling, voice acting, and personal choice can truly impact the experience in ways we never thought was possible.

If you have not played this game, you are doing yourself a disservice. Pick up Mass Effect 3 now and experience what is probably the greatest story-driven, science fiction franchise ever created in video games.

Awesome yet heartbreaking

Scorpion200 | May 1, 2014 | See all Scorpion200's reviews »

This is by far one of the best mass effect games in the trilogy however it is also one of the most disappointing. The games integrates players into the mass effect universe very well, you feel like your decisions in this game make a difference, the story well developed and will make the player want to explore all the different decisions. The play style is very smooth the players will feel like they are actually using the different abilities and the transition between fighting and exploring areas is very fluid.The environment in this game is beautiful, even the smallest detail can be appreciated. The character development is also great making you relate to your characters and makes you want to get to know them better. The only thing about this game that i hate is that the ending destroys everything about this game. The last 15 minutes pretty much destroy your hope and dreams, i won't get into too much detail but if you do buy this game prepare to be very angry once you finish it.

Amazing!

This is a must buy trilogy! You will want to play all 3 ME games to get the full story. The story is VERY well written and the character development is done very well. I enjoy RPG/Adventures that have a lot of character building and encourage you to become attached to the characters so your reaction to events are more realistic and give a more immersive experience. This game also looks fantastic in 3D! This trilogy is a must buy for any platform!

Better Than People Say

chataolauj | Jan. 19, 2014 | See all chataolauj's reviews »

The only reason why people hate it this part so much is because of the ending, but I actually liked the 3 endings. I tried all three and they actually made sense. There's always the DLC if you don't like the 3 endings. This is game is quite sad, as you have to make choices on your crew. If you didn't make the right choices earlier in the SERIES, as in part 1, then it'll be hard to keep some players alive. The only person that you can't save is Mordin because he chooses to sacrifice, and you don't get the option to help him out. Overall, this was a great ending to the series. Also, the last mission was a pain in the ass, but one of the best challenges I've had in awhile; or maybe I just sucked cause I died more than 20 times.

Fantastic trilogy, best of the series

hotaru33432 | Oct. 26, 2013 | See all hotaru33432's reviews »

The Mass Effect trilogy was one that will be remembered for years. The third installment in said trilogy was a worthy ending to such a fantastic series. Bioware upped the ante on this game through improved visuals, content, gameplay, and mechanics. The story, as to be expected of bioware and mass effect, was fantastic, the different aliens and weapons you could unlock or work besides turned me into a completionist. The multiplayer teases you with the item packs so much that it's addicting and you'll find yourself playing for hours. Genuinely a great game, and a great buy.
