Mass Effect 3 N7 Collector's Edition
This game absolutely blew my mind away. In the last couple weeks up to the release date with all the hype and trailers being released on the Mass Effect website, I could not wait to get my hands on this game. When I first started playing it, it was absolutely amazing! Specifically, the combat is much improved. It's not as stiff as it was in ME1 and ME2 and the combat rolls make engaging in combat significantly easier and more fun. The plot is also amazing. I'm not going to post any spoilers here, but it really does immerse you into the storyline from the first level out and it's highly interesting to see how your choices from the previous games play out in ME3. The weapon customization and new and branched powers adds a nice dosage of RPG customization that was overwhelming in the first game and a little lacking in the second (especially when it's easy to tell what weapons in ME2 are significantly the juggernauts). All in all, I'm excited to see how this plays out and I'm incredibly impressed with the game, even as I'm not finished it yet. A classic but amazing end to one of the best gaming series of all time. Great job Bioware!
Great game, Better after the update
This game is great, id have it 10 but the ending SUCKED, it was really bad, with the free DLC alt. ending it was much better. I've been a ME fan since the first one and would love to see a 4, unfortunately that's doubtful. If u enjoy combat u can turn up the difficulty, if u enjoy the story more you can choose the setting with more options, playing 1 and 2 is important or you'll probably be lost. The online is great as well and will keep you coming back for more.
Most people who say the game is terrible aren't real fans so don't listen. The graphics and sound are amazing and the movement an combat now are more fluid than previous games. The only probem people seem to have is then ending and if done correctly Sheperd lives. The multiplayer is great but shouldn't be played 24/7 or you'll burn yourself out.
Best Game I Have Ever Gotten So Far...
The Mass Effect trilogy has been all new to me when I first saw the ads and trailers. The more I focused on the Mass Effect world, the more I knew I had to get it. I was also a little cautious on getting the Collector's Edition since I have never played any of the previous games. When I look back at it, I am really glad that I have bought the game. Even more that I got the N7 Collector's Edition. For an ME newcomer, the third game in the series is really great for old ME players and new ME players. The graphics are just awesome as much as its storyline and gameplay. I've never thought that such a game could give this cinematic quality. For months, I was practically obsessed with the game. Having a Kinect sensor would even make things a lot easy for you. There are some commands that make you repeat the same command twice, but the Kinet will immerse you to the Mass Effect universe. Although many have criticized its ending, I'm realy satisfied with its ending. (Suggestion: Get an EMS of 4000-5000). Other than the campaign, its multiplayer is chained to the single player helping you raise your EMS and more. Oppurtunities of getting the most of the campaign comes from its classic firefight multiplayer. To me, it would be even better if they had at least one more game mode in multiplayer. If you get hooked into Mass Effect 3, I assure you that it will last for months.
Right outta the box this game puts you right into the fight for earth. With so many choices to make and missions to do there is a ton of different ways to play the possibilities are endless!!!!!! And after you have beaten the game a few times and think you're bored you're mistaken, the multiplayer is the most fun I've played in awhile!!!!!! PICK THIS GAME UP
One of the best games I've ever played before so much action and info to keep you entertained for years!!!!!
One Of The Greatest Games Of All Time!!!!
Truly wonderfully entertaining! A great conclusion to the best series I have ever had the honor to play! I have played and own tons of games but the Mass Effect Series (especially this installment) is right at the top. If you haven't played Mass Effect before get out there and buy all 3 games and all their dlc. Allow yourself to be taken by a rich story, immersive world, and wonderful gameplay! As a fan of RPGs, shooters, and action games I highly recommend this game. So, what are you doing still reading this review? Play it! This is Commander Shepard signing off!
This is probably the GAME OF THE YEAR, if not one of greatest games ever. If you've never played any Mass Effect before, I suggest you start at the beginning with number 1 and go all the way through the series. The story is on par with great sci-fy/ fantasy literature, and the game mechanics can not be beat. Even the multi-player is exciting and fun and fits well with the over all story, which is unexpected for this type of game. And if you don't get the from ashes DLC it really is not that big of a deal. It has little to no effect on story or gameplay. Now to the ending. Its not a bad ending by any means, have you heard the indoctrination theory yet? If it was in any other game it would probably be a great ending, but for Mass Effect it's not right. I have no problems with a unhappy ending. The sadness and tragic ending works well, its the lack of incorporation into the game. In ever other aspect of the game decisions you made effected how the game went for you, that was part of the premise for the title mass EFFECT. The ending did not give you this. Instead of your choices deciding your ending, it was more like thanks for playing our game, now what kind of topping do you want on your pizza? But non the less a really great game and series.
Dont listen 2 those who complain about ending
I have been playing the ME trilogy since the first one back in 07 and I must say Bioware has done it again. The story of ME3 is really good and is filled to the brim with an amazing emotional story that does a really good job at making you believe and care about the ME universe. Even the multiplayer was amazing and i had serious doubts that it would be good when i first heard about it, yet it was good. As for the ending each of the three choices are for you to interpret i recommend watching a few times get the point that the dev team was trying tell. I actually liked the end shame Bioware will have to change it because some people want everything to be their way.
Why does the collectors edition have a higher rating than the standard version? It's the same game. While I'm at it, why would you give such a fantastic game such a low rating just because of the ending? For those of you who haven't played through it all the way yet (INCLUDING MYSLEF) don't believe the stupid crybabies who say the ending sucks until you see it for yourself. And to all the haters, Bioware made the ending the way they did because it was the end of the TRILOGY. That doesn't mean that they will stop making the games. So shut up and move on you stupid little girls.
