Mass Effect 3
An Amazing Ending to the Mass Effect Series
Mass Effect 3, hands down, is one of the most amazing and fun games I've ever played, next to Skyrim and Assassin's Creed. The graphics for this game are really impressive, as good as Batman: Arkham City. The gameplay is fun and addictive, you being Commander Shephard (male or female), kicking butt in third-person and saving the Earth from the Reapers. There is also multiplayer too, which is impressive and fun. The story is probably the best part of the game, next to the graphics. You can choose good endings, bad endings, get involved in romance, unlock weapons, defeat enemies, and most importantly, save Earth. The sound is pretty good, all the characters sound as they look. Overall, this game deserves a 9 for the mind blowing story, amazing graphics, and addictive gameplay.
As a fan, I pre-ordered the CE of this and won't regret if it turns out to be lower than my expectations(i hope not). I love this series and I want to see everything it has to offer. Pre-ordering CE/ regular "with bonuses" or just a regular buy, either way it ends here. At least I won't have to say "I wish I'd pre-ordered this game" when I realize it's a "once in a lifetime" thing. I'm a fan :)
OHHHH MYYYYY GOSHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Bioware has done it again.... THIS GAME IS GONNA BE EPIC!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
We could have had it all....but we got something
Well first off 99% of the storyline is amazing. If you have been reading about fan reaction you know the ending is like a punch in the gut. That said, the game is great a lot of fun. I took points off of gameplay because they removed a lot of 'rpg elements' that I really enjoyed in the previous games. That is also part of the reason I took off from lasting appeal. I love replaying ME2 because you had so many choices and you could investigate people's stories. You can't do that in 3. I will admit part of the lasting appeal was destroyed by the ending. It hurts. Really it does. I took away from graphics because it looks a little wonky at points and then there are the graphic glitches. If you've played the ME series and loved it so far.... I would suggest it to you. I'd just all suggest stopping about ten minutes before the end if you really care about story lines. My analogy is that ME3 is the gymnast that is giving you an across the board 10 performance but then couldn't stick the landing. Well then........... I should go
Awesome ending for a trilogy
Mass Effect 3 is an incredible conclusion to a great trilogy. The story is intense and filled with events that fill you with all kind of emotions after you beat it. The only part of the story i didnt like was the ending, because there were so many questions, but not enough closures to answer them and this is really affecting my feelings about playing thought the story again. The gameplay is incredible, Shepard is alot faster and more agile, especially helpful when you go against strong and ruthless opponents. Since this is war you will be seeing and hearing alot a war references, alot of this is a good thing and backgrounds just look amazing. Multiplayer is an option in this game, but it feels more like a hoard mode, and i dont know how long people are gonna play it, but its an option to play. In the end this is a great purchase and a satisfying ending to a great trilogy, hopefully Bioware can fix the ending ( most likely with DLC), otherwise i highly recommend you purchasing this great game.
Great game, wish they did all 3!
This is so my favorite game series of all time... EVER! It's the only game series I love enough to have on both Xbox 360 and PS3! I love it. My only wish is that they had every single choice from Mass Effect 1 in ME2... so it goes through to 100% fulfillment! But I do love playing on PS3 as well... very cool! I know people didn't like the ending, but I really didn't mind it at all, and can't wait for their expansion of it via DLC. Reminds me of the Matrix movie series ending... I simply respectfully disagree as I was continually amazed at the pure awesomeness of this game and story and seeing all the characters... gun fighting was improved even. Multi-Player was cool, but I really only played it so I could get the 100% galactic readiness. This game to me... was the best in the series... I honestly felt they kept getting better... and although I did have dreams of different kinds of endings, I have total love and respect for what was given. Great job, Bioware... great game, great series! THANK YOU!
Mass Effect 3
This game has been the most amazing thing I've played in a while. I can't believe how well every aspect of the game is so well put together. I have definitely PRE-ORDERED and no matter how long it takes, I'll be alongside Commander Shepard taking out every single Reaper in existence.
The Mass Effect series has one of the greatest stories and gameplay experiences of any other game series out there, in my opinion. You seriously grow to love and feel for the characters. Mass Effect 3 is the last game in the series and a great game!
I highly recommend that you buy Mass Effect 2 BEFORE playing this game. Even better, buy Mass Effect 1 first, but at the LEAST, get Mass Effect 2. The cool thing about Mass Effect is, all the choices you make in all the games count towards the ending. You create a character in Mass Effect 1 and you transfer your character into Mass Effect 2, and then to Mass Effect 3. Everything you do counts and matters towards the greater ending.
For those who have played a Mass Effect game before, then I don't have to explain why this game is a must buy. It improves on nearly everything! There was criticism of the ending to the series, so make sure you download the Extended Cut off of the PS Store, it is free.
Get this game!!
A true emotional journey. (spoilers)
this game is what i have been waiting for now i started out with ME1 on the xbox but let me tell u the entire trilogy is amazing the way you connect to all the other characters and form relationships with them is increable. Note that i was only i want to say 13 or 14 but beside that point it was amazing experience the ending didnt disapoint me at all i destroyed the reapers and my shepard lived. however there is a problem the gameplay gets kinda boring in long winded fights and there are some graphic glitches nothing to bad. also although this is from ME1 why did they kill nihlus ? i would have loved to had known him and developed his character throught the whole game. Nihlus my friend am sorry i didnt get there in time. :( see this is what kind of amazing stuff this game does to you it makes you have real connections with the characters am 17 years old now but thank you bioware for giving me this game to play it was one great of a ride!!! and please give me one more with ME4 i love you bioware keep up the games :)
quite possibly sublime
for everyone that has not yet played ME2...its okay. The folks at BIOWARE have done an amazing job at putting you into their (read, your) universe by a comic (interesting idea) that allows you to choose your own destiny and set the playing field for ME2. You get background info on ME so when you start the game, you already know whats going on. I have seen some folks complain that it should only be on XBOX360. Sorry, for the first time, I've seen the PS3 pushed to its limits and ME2 did not disappoint. If the BIOWARE team took this much time to make this amazing of a game, ME3 will only dazzle and amaze. I will definitely preorder and I hope all of you will as well. The trailer is amazing, since in ME2 you never got a chance to go to Earth. Let see what happens when the Reapers try for a third time to take on the one man that has set them back twice!
