I am going to say this was one of the best games I have played in a long time. The whole time I felt the galaxy was actually depending on how I did. Put in extra time to procure allies and units for warfare before the final battle as I could. I am not going to talk about the ending but really it was bad. I mean really bad to the point it even negated my ability to use my imagination to make it better. I would have given this game a 10 but after all the work and the horrible ending its only getting a 9.

Let me star by saying never in my life have I ever been so engaged by a series of games. When I succeeded with Shepard I felt as if I actually succeeded. When I had gained an accomplice in the other games and have progressed with them throughout the games I felt a connection. I felt emotionally engaged in every game and felt as If I was actually my character or a part of him. With that being said this game in itself is amazing. The story is amazing and deep and engaging and their is multiple outcomes and dozens of important decisions that will later on have reproductions. The Combat is solid and fluid and feels natural from the type of game that it is and is surprisingly satisfying. But, I wish I could say this game was perfect. The first and second were flawless in my opinion but this one fell short. I will not ruin anything for anyone who decides to purchase or rent this game, but the ending was very disappointing. It felt as a let down after all the time of being fully engaged in the story of all three games. But besides that there is no reason to play this game and I would highly recommend this game to be bought.

Mass Effect 3 is the epic conclusion to Commander Shepard and the Reaper threat. This game is best only if you have the extended cut dlc which is free which closes holes in the poorly done ending they had before. The graphics are awesome, the story is awesome, and the choices to made are hard to decide. This game is meant for campaign, so those looking for multilayer this is not the game for you. The game has multilayer but is a cheap ripoff of Gears of War 2 and 3 horde mode which is really easy if you have a good team. This game has many things to do, the controls are great with or without kinect, and the characters bring you into the story.
This game will bring the best adventure to those who play through all the Mass Effect games which are also awesome. This is because Bioware has made the games be able to import your character throughout the game saga. Teammate AI are smart, enemies look amazing and the game leaves you wanting more. The only bad side to this game was the ending which has no final boss and no epic ending battle.
All the characters teammates or not all have a background story and/or has been part of Shepard's story. And you get to choose which character you want to date. And best of all, the campaign is long and takes hours to completely beat. I loved this game in every way and recommend this game to since fiction fans and army fans alike. Rent or buy, either way it is worth it.
