The original Mass Effect is not a good game. It is buggy, glitchy, and just not very fun. There is a ton of content in the game, but only the main story elements are worth playing. All of the side missions being you to one barren, lifeless planet after another, filled with virtually nothing but steep hills and mountains. The geography is totally unrealistic and the planets are boring to explore, just to find some bonus resources. The story is decent, but nothing new. The characters are okay, but it's more the choices you make and the consequences of your actions that save this very generic, mostly boring RPG. Mass Effect 2 is vastly superior to the original. It is easily the best of the trilogy. It has a great story, more likable characters than the original, and the same decision making process throughout the story that gives some nice consequences. The side quests this time are much more fun and they removed the barren lifeless planets that hindered the original. This is also the only game in the trilogy that has a final boss fight, and boy is it good, as is the last level. During the last level, you can actually die and alter the ending for every character based on whether they survive the entirety of the ridiculous onslaught of hundreds of enemies just to get to the final boss. This game alone is worth the price of admission. The third Mass Effect is also better than the original, but not as good as the sequel. The ending is very flawed and offers very little resolve to the epic story that was really taken advantage of in the second game. The graphics were much improved and the gameplay is more fluid and fun, but the overall game is a step back from the second one. Overall, this trilogy is worth playing, but it's very flawed and the games are all over the place in terms of quality. The first game is just plain bad and chock full of performance problems and horrible design choices, including boring gameplay, mundane side quests, and barren lifeless worlds. The second game is simply incredible and nothing short of a masterpiece. Then the third game is all over the place, sometimes being amazing, other times sinking back to the problems that hindered the original. It almost feels like they had too many teams working on various aspects of the games because the quality is an uneven mess and really holds this series back from greatness. While nowhere near as bad as many other games out there, Mass Effect is worth your time, but is really over rated and very badly paced and has a very choppy flow.
It would be an exaggeration to say that Mass Effect is to video games what Star Wars is to cinema. Mass Effect is not that important but it's a great saga with a interesting background and good characters. The gameplay is pretty well done and unique. It's like the evolution of Star Wars KOTOR's system. With storyline focused on the choices you make, great actions and quests, Mass Effect is a saga that every Sci-fi fans should try.
Any Sci-fi or Mass Effect fan needs to get this bundle. All 3 games are amazing in their own right. Mass Effect one does slightly differ from the later games, due to changes in combat and obviously graphics wise, but that doesn't make the story less amazing and it's a to play from 1 to 3 with the same character, which I feel made the whole franchise more enjoyable... Your decisions from one game can affect the gameplay in the following game, which I didn't really think much of until I certain dialogue and situations occured. I've played through all these games multiple times!
...are amazing. If I went into detail over how much I adore the Mass Effect series, the review could be near endless. OK, first things first, all three of these games are perfection. Whilst the gameplay in the first Mass Effect is different to the last two, all 3 are still very fun to play. The story is very interactive, with you being able to take your character down the root of good or evil. Sounds average, but the depth in which these decisions effect the outcome is something every player should consider. With so many planets to explore and countless hours of gameplay from this trilogy, these games are sure to have a mass effect on your game-life. Pun intended.
