I really enjoyed playing both the Mass effect 2, 3 games. Lucky enough I played the second two weeks before the release of #3. I like the way you could influence the game play with both the games. I would like to see more of that type of play. I wish this game series wouldn't end.
This game is one of the best games I have ever played in my entire life. As you may have heard if you haven't played the game yet the ending sucks. However, I must say that everything else is absolutely perfect. Bioware's best game ever.
First of all, if you haven't played the first 2 games, I highly, highly recommend you do that. Just about everything in this game is linked to something you did or know about in the previous games. That is what is so incredible about this game.
Now for game enthusiastic and Mass Effect fans that haven't played it yet and heard all the talk about the ending... IT IS SO OVER PLAYED. It can be a little confusing, but BioWare knows what they are doing. They are not going to make a crapy ending of a serious that was so extensively though out. People can complain all they want, but in the end, I though this game met every expatiation I had of it and more (which is the best game ever).
What made it so much better than I expected was the multiplayer. It is my personal favorite multilayer ever. Better than any 1st player shooter, Uncharted... any of them.
At worst you get a very good game, don't know how anyone could ever be disappointed with this game.
