Ive read a hundred reviews....and im going out on a limb here...but this may be the greatest game/series of all time. Ive even recently went back and played all three games again. People are complaing about the ending..(spoiler) you giving your life for humanity is more than i expected from the games hero. The ammount of detail is mindboggling when importing the last 2 games...I received an email from a guy in the first game with a thank you and a back story...small...i know, but this is more epic a series than lord of the rings, more emotional than the ending of braveheart,,lol. great series. If your a fan, play all 3 again...obtaining 100 percent and making the choices you want, tying into the most epic series ive ever played, watched or read in my life. Outstanding ending. Cant wait for something (DLC), that adds to any piece of the story.
Let me start by saying personally I was not a fan of the first or second installments of the Mass Effect series but Mass Effect 3 is a different story. I have never jumped into a game and within the first 5 minutes said to myself "me and sleep are about to be no longer acquainted" but with ME 3, my first play sessions lasted me about 9 hours and I still wanted more, the story is probably the best in a game to date and the combat can be either simple or in depth depending on your cup of tea, personally I love finding which biotic combos work best for different enemies and finding out when using a gun here or nova there will be more effective. Next is the multiplayer, I wasn't very interested in it until I started playing it, it has a much more satisfying feeling than horde or zombies ever will, it's an actual challenge which is pretty hard to come by these days as game dev's are focusing more and more on casual players. All in all with all of the generic titles that have been getting released lately it's a great change of pace and will keeping you playing for hours, I only wish there were more hours in the day so I could grind all of my characters to max rank.
