Go weapons-hot in a fully immersive sci-fi epic that reacts to every decision you make.
Not everyone will survive. An ancient alien race, known only as "Reapers", has launched an all-out invasion leaving nothing but a trail of destruction in their wake. Earth has been taken, the galaxy is on the verge of total annihilation, and you are the only one who can stop them. The price of failure is extinction. You are Commander Shepard, a character that you can forge in your own image. You determine how events will play out, which planets to explore, and whom to form alliances with as you rally a force to eliminate the Reaper threat once and for all. How you wage this war is completely up to you: go into combat with guns blazing or use cover to plan a more tactical assault. Utilize your squad to full effect or take a lone wolf approach. Rain death from a distance or go toe–to-toe with enemies using devastating melee attacks. Mass Effect 3 will react to each decision you make as you play through a truly unique experience of your own creation.

Mass Effect 3 is a cool game.
Mass Effect 3 is a solid game, with nice graphics and spectacular staging. There is also a nice closure for the saga. Maybe the only downside is the frame rate. It seems to be quite difficult for my PS3 to move fluently in the the game. It's a must have in any case.
If you missed Mass Effect 3 for some reason, now is the time to buy it and play. You will not regret it.
Mass Effect 3 is a really realistic game. It keeps you enjoying every minute of playing the game, but I think there too many scenes and films to watch, and that bored me a couple of times.
Mass Effect 3 is more than great. It's not better than Mass Effect 2 - for me it's on the same level. I absolutely love it.
Mass Effect 3 is awesome game and you cant make a mistake buying it. There has not been a game that draws me into a story like this one. The story is even more complex than previous games in series. I feel like most missions are Final boss battles. I cant describe the feeling when you explore the galaxy and learn about every race even more that previous games and you are drawn into their own battles that last for centuries. I've never played a game where you are responsible for the outcome of every single species, until now. Mass effect 3 does not disappoint in any aspect, although I haven't reached the end of it yet, but whatever happens, good or bad, it cannot erase the fun I have already had.
This is probably the most epic game I have ever played. In a lot of games you save the world, but to save every living thing in the universe is even better.
Mass effect 3 is an awesome addition to the Mass Effect series. It's unmissable for those who played the previous Mass Effect games and I'd recommend it even to those who haven't played any of previous parts because it's all explained in the game. This is one of my favourite games of all time, it's the best in the franchise.
Mass Effect 3 is a brilliant game and another must have. This is highly recommended and should be purchased.
Mass Effect 3 is a great game. It's not easy but has a fantastic story.
Mass Effect 3 is more dynamic than the second opus. You really have the impression of saving the galaxy. A great game!
Mass Effect 3 is really good, especially if you have played both games before.
Mass Effect 3 is an amazing game, with outstanding graphics and addictive gameplay. The story for sure is good, but I expected something more, nevermind. I think this is a must have for everyone who owns a PS3.
A brilliant game - though scorn has been cast upon the ending, it's a thrilling ride with fantastic gameplay mechanics and a compelling story throughout. There's plenty of side missions and things to do - the only shame is that there's a few missions where completing them feels somewhat pointless. But it's well worth playing and a definite game of the year contender.
Right from when I received Mass Effect 3 and discovered the reversable cover (I have a FemShep character) I was impressed. Great presentation, top class acting and how it continues the various storylines based on decisions made in Mass Effect 1 and 2 is just amazing. I had to mark it down since on my first play it froze my PS3 twice, however I have not had a single problem since. The multiplayer is actually relevant to the main story which is nice but the locations are quite small with little variety and the matches go on for a bit too long. Overall I highly recommend this game, but make sure you have played the previous games first. I already intend to replay the series making very different choices to see where that leads.
I've only just started playing Mass Effect 3, but so far so good. The graphics are wonderful. There are enough changes to familiar places to get a tad confusing and frustrating, but the sense of oncoming dread is strong. I know I will have a fight ahead of me! I would recommend Mass Effect 3 to anyone who has played the previous Mass Effect games because, it's the best part of the trilogy!
Mass Effect 3 is a great game with great story-telling. The world needs more games like this.
Good game though he does not suppose a qualitative jump so evident as the fact that it was presuming Mass Effect 2 with regard to the original one, Mass Effect 3 includes countless innovations, between them a system of very top combat. We do not know to where it will be going to stop Mass Effect later, but he congratulates us that Shepard's history has ended at a height of the circumstances. Culmination that, according to the decisions that you take, will impede you of sadness or melancholy.
As the third instalment of a trilogy, whether or not you should buy Mass Effect 3 is a simple decision: If you've played the first two games in the series then you should play this as soon as you possibly can. If you haven't played the first two, then you really should play those first (or the second if you own a PS3). Every gamer should try the Mass Effect series. Mass Effect 3 combines the best bits of the previous two games. It successfully blends an epic story that spans a galaxy with robust third-person shooting mechanics. It has slightly deeper role-playing elements than Mass Effect 2, without being too complex. It is more fluid and satisfying to control than ever before. The only hesitation I have in calling this the greatest game ever made is the controversial ending. Regardless, Mass Effect 3 is a must-buy game.
The last chapter of the Mass Effect saga is the indian summer of that amazing action RPG. A perfect mix of RPG, action and TPS with an engaging, even if it is not too much original, plot. All the characters have a strong and well-defined personality and they will be ever consistents with their ideals; the large number of environments, varied and beautiful, isn't repetitive as someone can expect. The story is simple: you are Shepard, the choosen hero to save all the universe from the Reapers threat. You will be involved in the plot as soon as the game begins, after a short tutorial in which you can learn the command system, you will be the last hope of all the species. Your mission is to build an army strong enough to face the attack of the Reapers, a scaring and tremendous synthetic alien race. Interaction between the characters of the party are one of the most interesting things of the game: some key events will open new dialogues and you can be involved in some love stories with your mates. There are some little technical issues (in some videos the framerate is irregular) doesn't compromise the game experience. A must-have game for all the lovers of Action RPGs and for all the gamers in general.
Great game, great story!
Mass Effect 3 is an amazing game. Although I think the ending is not quite good, the gameplay is excellent. Just play it, because, if you've got problem with the ending, you could jusk ask EA or Bioware to relese new ending DLC.
I enjoyed the 20 or so hours of Mass Effect 3 a lot! EA's take on action/shooting/RPG offers a lot of depth and epic battles. What I didn't like was the ending (as everyone else) and I'm hoping for a DLC with a new ending. For some reason, the cutscenes had occasional stutter on my PS3. All in all I believe anyone who played Mass Effect 1 or 2, should definitely give this one a try, you will not be disappointed.
If you played the first two Mass Effect games, you pretty much have to play this one, just to see how it all ends. I still think searching for artifacts, etc. is boring. I would prefer an open world, like Skyrim, where it feels more random when you stumble upon something in the game. Here, you can't really find missions or planets to land on unless you speak to someone first. Gameplay is pretty much the same, and my only real complaint is that I sometimes catch myself thinking, "If only this cover system thing was as good as Gears of War." I played this game mainly for the story, and I wanted to find out what happened to all the characters, etc.
This is the first game in the Mass Effect series that I've played, and although the 2nd and 3rd game connect in terms of their story-line, I found getting to grips with Mass Effect 3 relatively easy. The game has an immense world that draws you in from the very off. The graphics are top notch, the music, sound and acting are on par with some of the greatest sci-fi movies. All in all, I couldn't recommend this game more!
Mass Effect 3 is a simply great game, with great graphichs, and great battle mode, but as you've probably suspected by now, it has a bad ending, and predictible story, but this doesn't stop it being probably the best game of the year...
This has just overtaken Resident Evil 4 as my favourite game of all time. Mass Effect 3 has exactly the right balance of RPG, Action and Story elements for people who find massive RPG's like Skyrim too much to get on with. It's a definite must-buy - especially at this price.
When I got my Gears Of War 3 with the mail the game cover was broken, but who cares about that when the game is so good!!!
Mass Effect 3 is an awesome game! Graphics, sound, story, all great! Epic space adventure!
The Mass Effect series has played an important part in game development in modern times. Although this was not as good as the second, it still provides what we all want from a quality game, which is a good story which grips you till the end and characters we know and love and which you will help determine their fate. If we talk about the quality of graphics, we can see that the standard is still as we expect simply brilliant. The mechanics in character control as been refined to make this a joy to play which makes gamers lifes easier. The story last for a minimum of 25 hours and leaves you gripped till the end, although many have moaned about the ending, in some ways I think it fitted the series in a good way. The only moan I have was some of the characters from the second game where hardly involved as much as I would have hoped. However saying that, the ones who were there played a dramatic role. The multiplayer aspect was an afterthought which some may like but for me I was not to keen, very like Gears of War which is not a bad thing but its not what made the game for me. In conclusion, if you love a great story and you need to see the end of series this is a must for any fan. The only negative was a half-hearted multi-player which did not capture the imagination and maybe we could have seen more of the characters from the old games. This games is 9/10, miss it at your peril.
Game was very poor. Finished in less than 8 hours. If you liked mass effect 2 you will not like this it is like they took a giant step back.
I already had mass effect 2, and I loved it. I couldn't wait for ME3, and now that I've got it, I couldn't be happier. The game exceeds all my expectations, every second that I'm playing it is a miracle. if you're a fan of mass effect, you should buy it immediately, it's definitely worth it. even if you're not familiar with mass effect, I think you will like this game. the story and gameplay are great, and looks absolutely beautiful. I really recommend it!
This is more than simply a video game. It is an immersive, incredibly detailed and amazingly well-crafted experience. From an excellent Battlefield Galactica-esk soundtrack (as continued on from the first 2 games) to the fantastic story lines including all side missions. Such an incredible game, even if you aren't into sci-fi or 3rd person shooters - this game is a must. Even if it is just to see where the bar has now been set.

Mass Effect 3 is excellent - Delivered on time.
If you liked Mass Effect 2 you'll love this. I'd advise you pick up ME2 first to get the most out of ME3.
The game itself for me was a let down. I loved the me2 game and was looking forward to me3 but it doesn't touch me2 in my opinion. The main reason for this is the decisions you make in the previous games, which don't have much of an effect on the game or storyline.
I was given the 2nd game for christmas and really enjoyed it so I was really looking forward to Mass Effect 3. I wasn't disappointed. The game play is pretty much exactly the same as the 2nd in the series with the exception of a few minor changes such as not being able to "hack" into stuff to receive credits etc. I really enjoyed the game play as it was just shooting things, which is pretty fun! However the story line was a bit confusing. The main story line was fair easy to understand but then you get all these subplots which can be slightly confusing. Plus there's a part of the game where you can check the strength of the galaxy's military but I have no idea how to increase it! :P The graphics are simply stunning and I really enjoyed some of the explosions and battle scenes. The music, however, was the real kicker to this game as it really added to the quality of it! In summary: Graphics: 8/10 Music/Sound: 9/10 Storyline: 5/10 Gameplay: 7/10 Replayability: 7/10 Overall: 8/10 = highly recommended :)
The Mass Effect series redefines sci-fi gaming, and is simply the pinnacle of the genre. Mass Effect 3 is an essential game for anyone who enjoys gaming. It's an emotional and engrossing experience. Once the player has customised their own Commander Shepard, they're sent to save the galaxy from the Reaper threat. Each players game will turn out a little different from the next. Mass Effect 3 itself is the end of the journey, and those who are new to the series could feel a little lost, however, the game attempts to recap without boring those who have been there from the start. Compared to the other two, Mass Effect 3 is definitely polished off. The game-play is smooth and intense, especially when youre taking on a synthetic life form the size of a skyscraper. The graphics are beautiful, and at times, you find yourself just taking in the surroundings. The relationship between you and your crew members isnt as complex as Mass Effect 2, though the emotional attachment remains. There is a vast range of customisation, so players can tweak amour and guns just to their liking, aswell. The multi-player aspect is co-operative, and sometimes it can be hard to find other players that will play with others of a lower level, as they don't have much trust for them, but the multi-player only really reasserts that Mass Effect 3 is a single player game, as it merely complements the single player experience. The only real disappointment with the game is the ending, but this can be overlooked, as the journey itself is like nothing you have experienced before. Mass Effect 3 is a step away from perfection, only falling at the last hurdle, but it should not be enough to put anyone off buying what is possibly the most important game of 2012.
Even though I have not played Mass Effect 1 or 2, Mass Effect 2 puts you in the forefront of the trilogy that is fun to play. The multiplayer is awesome and the story is even better! The are "Codexes" in the game which give you an insight into the previous edition, so you need not be afraid to play the entire series just to experience this one. Buy it!
I haven't even finished Mass Effect 3 yet, but it has already broke even. I believe you have to have played Mass Effect 2 to get the most out of it though, otherwise, it's like watching the last season of a really good TV show without seeing the ones before it. Overall though, brilliant game. Absolutely love it, and definitely recommend it.
Mass Effect 3 is an absolutely epic sci-fi shooter, but I feel ashamed to describe it as that, because it is so much more! I definitely recommend it.
