Critical Mass

vipe_1 | May 8, 2015 | See all vipe_1's reviews »

Mass Effect 3, the final installment in the "original" trilogy of the Mass Effect universe, brings Commander Shepard's battle to a stunning (if controversial) conclusion. Make no mistake, with the Mass Effect series BioWare has staked a claim as the champion of Western RPGs while crafting a sci-fi experience worthy of comparison to the exploits of the Starship Enterprise or the struggle against the Empire. This third installment continues where it's predecessors left off, starting with a startling attack and escape sequence that will set the tone of the Reapers final assault. The story of ME3 will take you on a whirlwind tour of both new and familiar settings and characters. All of your favorites are back for the ride, and the integration of team members from both ME and ME2 is very well done. In the end, this game is truly a Space Epic, and is both satisfying and poignant. It's completely unique to the video game industry to have characters that actually make you feel like you're saying a meaningful goodbye to them in the end. Technically, ME3 is terrific. Graphics are very nice, sound and voice acting top notch, and gameplay runs along without a hitch or clip. The run and gun gameplay is precise and challenging. Also, the new multiplayer mode that ties into the single player story is cool as well, and surprisingly worth several hours of play. This team based mode is a worthwhile addition. In the end, Mass Effect 3 faithfully ends one of the greatest epics produced in modern media. This is a fantastic and engrossing game, with many hours of gameplay. A character in Command Shepard (and the struggle against the Reapers) comes full circle. Long live the Hero of the Alliance.

Awesome

Kveni | Nov. 11, 2014 | See all Kveni's reviews »

That one words literally sums up my experience of this game. It's so fun, and it's so interesting that it's so hard to put down. The game looks SO good, and the gameplay is still so awesome, smooth, and epic. I played this on the Xbox 360, and I'm doing it again on the PC just because of how awesome of a game it is. Although, if this is your first time sitting down to play a mass effect game, please start with the first one, it only makes sense. This game is absolutely amazing, but so are the other two, and they are the games that lead up to the crazy conclusion of this game, so please start with the other two in order to get the full experience in this game.

Great way to finish a series

adboyum | Sept. 15, 2014 | See all adboyum's reviews »

This game is fantastic! My favorite upgrade in this game from the previous is the enhanced cinematic aspect. It's like playing a movie. The transitions between gameplay and awesome cinematic moments drop your jaw! Then it does a flawless transition back into game play so you can continue the story. Many people have fought about the end of the game on whether it was a great ending or a terrible one. I am on the side of great. Just like the rest of the game, it gives you choice that you have to pick between. Which I love! Because this allows you to keep choosing what kind of hero you will be...all the way up to the very final moments of the game.

Hell of an end

Jericho417 | Aug. 1, 2014 | See all Jericho417's reviews »

As the finale to a great series, everyone had high expectations. For the most part, they delivered. However, the endings caused a lot of drama. Understandably so, because they felt less polished than the rest of the game. The story had some rough edges here and there, but it's still deserving of it's praise. Side missions are a big part of the game, like they were in the second. You're trying to build an army to take on the Reapers, so you do a lot of running around. Combat was much like the second game, only a few small changes here and there. If it's not broke, don't fix it, I guess. The dialogue options were a bit more robust, but at times, it felt like your choice didn't really effect anything. I felt that this game was just a little inferior to the second game, but it's Mass Effect we're talking about here. The games are all awesome and this one is no exception.

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.
