Amazing way to end the trilogy

The1337N00Bx | July 22, 2015 | See all The1337N00Bx's reviews »

Like the previous games, this has a large selection of diverse worlds to explore and fight through that are insanely fun. The classes and skills you can use in the game add for multiple different kinds of play styles for the game as well. The story is great and I feel wraps up nicely. The multiplayer added in this game is also really fun, basically being a horde mode, with waves and waves of enemies to fight against with four player coop on multiple different maps. I would highly recommend this game and this series to everyone.

It's not the destination, but the journey that counts

Everybody and their mother has complained about Mass Effect 3’s ending, how it almost completely threw out all of your achievements and decisions from the previous two games and left you with one of three bland choices. Well, aside from that disappointing anti-climax, Mass Effect 3 is still a great game. Mass Effect 3 takes the best aspects of Mass Effect 1 and 2 and combines them into a satisfying package. The combat is still as fast as it was in Mass Effect 2, but there is more customization and RPG elements, similar to what Mass Effect 1 had. You have varied allies that don’t feel like copies of the class choices you have in the character creator as in Mass Effect 2, but Mass Effect 3 cuts down on the number of allies you have to make things less confusing, just like they were back in Mass Effect 1. The story might be one of Mass Effect’s 3 greatest triumphs, ending notwithstanding, and your decisions actually feel like they matter, at least until the end. Many decisions you made in the previous Mass Effect games also come into play in Mass Effect 3, at least before the ending comes. If you examine Mass Effect 3 as a whole, you will see it is still a good game, a triumph of a space opera video game. The ending is lackluster, but everything else is superb. Just be willing to buy the DLC if you want the full experience.

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

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.
