Mass Effect Trilogy
3 amazing games
I had never heard of mass effect until 3 came out. After my first play through I knew I had to play the rest of this amazing trilogy. I have honestly never been happier with a set of games. Each one improves on the last. Now just have to wait until number 4
best one in the series !
this game was a surprise to me because i didnt care for the first one but it really is a fun and entertaining game, i enjoyed it for what it is and not expecting much going in i was pleasantly surprised!, oh yeah sad to see sheppard go meaning he wont be in the next one!
Good overall game.
Great game series, has a great storyline and great graphics. The ending of Mass Effect 3 is very disapointing. Good game otherwise.
Re-Live gaming's most legendary trilogy...
EA has offered us the ultimate gaming bundle since Valve's"The Orange Box" with the release of "The Mass Effect Trilogy". The PS3 edition comes with each of the highest grossing DLC for each respective title. Including a free redemption for the "Mass Effect 3" extended cut. Games included, that's nearly $120 worth of material in a $60 dollar bundle! My recommendation is simple, buy this if you want a franchise that not only keeps you entertained with stunning graphics and smooth gameplay, but one of the most compelling stories in modern sci-fi story telling. For long time fans, re-live gaming's most legendary trilogy as you guide Shepard from humble beginnings to the hero of the galaxy.
Play from one up!
Great games and a great series. They just topped it off by putting it in one package! It's one of those games you'll beat then want to play it again.
They brought it home.
Perhaps the best video game series of all time. An absolute must have for all RPG players. That being said, there are a few very minor problems, but they in no way diminish the level of these games.
Mass Effect 1 started the gaming world plunging into the saga of Commander Shepard. Combat is slightly clunky in this one, with minor cover issues, and rather aggravating power usage (powers are activated by throwing 'grenades' that when they hit the target go off with the desired effect) Graphics in Mass Effect 1 are slightly dated, though still beautiful. There are moments in the game where you will lose background sound, but never for more then 30 seconds at a time, in one 35 hour play-through, i had this occur a total of 3 times. I believe these problems are due to the fact that the game was originally released on the Xbox, and was 'rushed'.
Mass Effect 2 brought in a far easier way to activate your powers and abilities, as well as making your equipment far easier to use. Instead of wading through menus, and upgrades for each individual piece, your upgrades are automatically applied to all members of your squad, weapons or armor. Character development is very indepth in this one. Each squad member has a Loyalty mission that varies from 25 minutes to an hour long. All of the characters, with the exception of one, in my opinion, are extremely likeable. Replayability is extremely high in this one due to the overarching effects of your decisions having vast repercussions in the grand scheme of the storyline.
Mass Effect 3 tops off the Trilogy with an amazing flourish. Commander Shepards saga comes to an explosive ending, in a drop down, knock out punch that many people never saw coming. In fact the worst thing about this game, I believe, is that it is significantly shorter then Mass Effect 2. This in no way diminishes the quality of the game. The importing feature is a great way to watch the impact of your actions on the Mass Effect universe in-game, as events from Mass Effect 1 and 2 have a real effect on the storyline in Mass Effect 3. The storyline comes to an end with a few questions that still need to be answered.
On the whole, Gameplay ranks among the best of anything I've ever played, Story is top notch, as to be expected of Bioware, Sound is amazing, baring the few instances in the first one. Graphics are top notch, despite the fact that the first two are years old. Replayability is incredible with the broad spectrum of classes, and choices reaching from one game into the next.
If you are looking for a game that is well worth its weight in money, This is a very good investment. Hours upon hours of missions/quests, deeply riveting story and an online community to rival all other major online players. Pick it up. You wont be disappointed.
4 words people, 4 words: OMFG!!!!!!!
Never played any of the Mass Effect games at all. Bought the trilogy on PS3 last week on Saturday. OMFG I JUST BEAT THE FIRST GAME AND THE STORY IS BLOODY AWESOME!!!!! First game was hard but not really that hard. Mass Effect series tops #1 for EA and Crysis series ranks #2 in my book. This game is badass. Cannot wait to start Mass Effect 2 in the morning. OMFG OMFG OMFG!!!!!!
Great for deep space adventurers and RPG players!
The wait is over! Since I have abandoned 360 I have been missing ME1. Not only is PS3 FINALLY releasing the beginning to the best deep space story, they have spiffed up the graphics, sound, and overall quality to match ME2 and ME3. Originally I found ME1 beautifully done compared to the other games in it's time, but to match current quality is ideal. This full story will satisfy for a very long time, and hopefully the Mass Effect Trilogy will be DLC compatible to further the depth of the galaxies. WreckingBall of the S.S.V. Normandy, signing off!
Not worth 60 bucks...
Now its fine if you don't have any of them, but for people who have both 2 & 3 well they aren't going to be buying it. If this were 39.99 like it should be then I would pick it up in a heartbeat, but I don't see paying 60 bucks for 2 games that are relatively cheap and 1 that is like 15 on the PSN.
meh I would buy this on my ps3 simply because I can get all 3 and another excuse for me to play the whole series again :P ( own all 3 on my 360 ) but if it doesn't come with all the DLC I don't see the point ( stupid since most other trilogies come with DLC included like the Assassin creed one in Europe comes with all 5 games and the DLC + assassin creed 3 season pass)
