I started playing this game remembering that I enjoyed the first and second games but nothing more. After playing I went back and played the second game then the third game again and then the first game. So yeah I really got into the series. the series is much better than I ever remember and has one of the greatest plots of any game.
You will loose track of time and spend dozens and dozens of hours playing the series. the game play is dialed right in near perfect compared to the previous titles. It really has the feel of gears of war now and I think that is a good thing. The battle scenes are amazing with hundreds of ships going at it and reapers in the background killing people while you are fighting. It is very intense and makes c.o.d. seem weak.
The decisions make the game much funner than a game like gears of war and you will find yourself wanting to get involved with Tali, Legion, Garrus, Liara, Javik, Joker, and EDI. lol. Tough the ending is pretty disappointing to true mass effect fans and full of plot holes I feel the rest of the game really makes up for it.
I hope to see the series continue in the future, I've heard they are making a mass effect movie.
This game was amazing from the start. Every choice you make, feels like you're changing the Galaxy. The game fored me to make choices that I'd literally feel HORRIBLE about, even though its just a game. The characters are extremley lifelike, and you really grow attached to them, especially if you played Mass Effect 1 and 2. The gameplay is good, sometimes a bit slow, but something you'd expect from a 3rd person shooter. The main thing I have a problem with is the ending. It almost made me depressed, and gave me ZERO closure on what happened to the friends and characters I grew attached to throughout the game. But overall, I give this game a solid 9 out of 10. Very good game.
this game was definitley a wonderful experience, I'v played me2 and the shooting mechanics are definetly upgraded allowing for more mobility while in combat, also an upgraded melee system that is very useful for dispatching close quarter enemies. The story continue's some time after me2 and brings the same sort of involving plot with quite a few tough desicions. The graphics are better but not incredibly. The exploration aspect of me3 has definitly been streamlined bieng as you can only do the missions on a planet and not simply walk around the world freely as you did in ME2. also the mining for elements to synthesis Items has been stream lined as well seeing as scanning planets are done even before you enter it's atmospher and select it. Other than that it is a solid threequel that should bring alot of hours of thought provoking phrase selection and reaper shooting to satisfy any ME fan.
