Mass Effect 3

With Mass Effect 3, Bioware have somehow managed to up the production values, since Mass Effect 2, with lovely graphics, music, story and (of course) game-play. It's fun exploring environments crowded with unique and evolving details, then crashing through the action, with satisfyingly advanced gunfights. You feel like you're in control in the middle of a top blockbuster sci-fi flick. You don't need to have owned any of the previous games but you'll probably want to after this. Tiny decisions from Mass Effect 1 and 2, have a big impact in this third instalment, so you can play it like one huge game, instead of three big, individual games. I like the way that some of the more technical aspects have returned from Mass Effect 1 (e.g. weapon modification) whilst cutting out anything that made previous games a bit of a boring experience. It's a fantastic game, Mass Effect 3. You just have to buy it.

Mass Effect 3 is by far, one of the best games I've played since Skyrim came out. In fact, it's scale could easily match that of Skyrim. It has outstanding game-play and above all, the story is second-to-none, and it's so dependant on literally everything you do within the story. It's truly amazing, and easily a 10 out of 10. I highly recommend it.

I'm a huge fan of the Mass Effect series and was definitely not let down by number 3. In whole, the pace is great and the tension builds perfectly. Combat is engaging and the Kinect works best in the middle of a good confrontation. It isn't perfect, there is the odd mistake, but considering the size of the game, that would really be petty to moan about. The ending will divide players, definitely. I was left a little disappointed, but how do you end a huge trilogy? It's nowhere near as bad as the ending in Rage, that's for sure. Overall though, it's a brilliant game, and will definitely please Mass Effect fans, and gamers new to the series, without a doubt.

Awesome!

A great conclusion to the trilogy. Evolution rather than revolution in terms of gameplay. An excellent story and superb replay value.

Good game let down by Kinect

4

If you play Mass Effect 3 without the Kinect voice commands, the game is fine. But if you try and play it using the voice controls it can get a bit messy. I was in the middle of a battle shouting at the screen, and all my character did was stand there like a wally. There are a few points that hold the game back from five stars, such as the overcomplicated cover system. It is still a potential Game of the Year candidate without a doubt!

I wouldn't say this is the best game of the year, nor would I say it's the best game of the decade. I'd say it's the best game that has ever been released, period. Mass Effect 3 truly is an amazing game. I literally can't get enough of it. It has carried on so well from Mass Effect 2, in the way that it has been improved in many areas, and the story-line is nicely continued. I definitely recommend Mass Effect 3 to anybody. It'd be a shame for you to miss it.

Mass Effect 3 is a great game (as you may of heard by now!). If you're a fan of the Mass Effect series, you won't be let down. Although I would of preferred to see different characters being playable, it doesn't take anything away from how much of an epic game this is. The multi-player mode is a great way to include friends into the great gaming experience, making the whole thing feel very well-finished, and tidy around the edges.

Excellent gameplay, brilliant story, but lacking in everything

4

Despite what some individuals have been saying, mass effect 3 builds off both the previous game to create something that is entertaining, emotional and compelling, but it still leave much to be desired. Remember back to Mass Effect 1, the sheer amount content was staggering, Missions, Weapons, Armour, Abilities, Weapon Mods, Exploration and Morality choices. The shooter action scenes left some things to be desired but weren't awful in any sense, ME1 was an RPG with Shooter Elements. ME1 story focuses on a Human marine (Sheperd) on a mission to stop a rouge agent from bringing the end to galactic civilization by bringing back an ancient threat known as the reapers. Mass Effect 2 expands on many of the features from ME1, for the most part offering improvements, better more action oriented combat, great introduction and decent plot and many new enhancements and features, however the game lacked many of the RPG elements much of the immersion effects were removed offering fast travel in place of elevators, (to many players satisfaction), much more restrictions on weapons and armour and the dubbing down of exploration. However even with these changes ME2 was still a great game, while some of the core RPG fans disliked the chances, mass effect was always more focused on Action than Role Playing (with the exception of the conversational choices). ME2 allowed even more control of the universe with the players choices changing the major events. The changes to the gameplay make ME2 a Shooter / RPG with a higher combat focus. ME2 starts with Sheperds ship (the Normandy) being destroyed and Sheperd going down with the ship, he/her is later revived by a renown extremist group to help investigate recent attacks on human colony's, that may be related to the reaper threat, with a new team and ship, The Normandy SR2. Mass Effect 3 expands from the second game with no content from the first that was lost making a re-appearance to the series (with the exception of the characters). The plot from the previous games is continued, this time the reapers have finally arrived and earth being decimated as Sheperd and his team escape on the Normandy in an attempt to gather alien allies to help earth. ME3 boasts an improved combat system heavily based uppon ME2s however with faster paced actions, and improved melee attacks, the player now has the ability to play within multiple floors of a combat zone, allowing for improved tactics, the AI has also been improved allowing for more exiting combat missions. The conversation systems within ME3 seems relevantly the same however the players choices have absolutely no effect on any of the major plot details whatsoever, while both missions and side missions still exist this definitely reduces the games RPG elements to a minimal, as the choices do effect weather some characters live or die and the events leading towards the end, but not the end itself, the removal of most mini-games (such as hacking, or bypassing) isn't a plus ether. The games plot definitively deserves credit despite these changes however for its staggering ability to trigger emotional reactions, as characters that over the previous titles players have become attached to are drastically effected by events, for better or for worse, but im not going to say who, what or where, for that you need to play the game yourself. As i have said the players choices do not affecta the games end, however they do effect everything else, if a character survived the previous games they can be found within ME3, if not others are there to take their place and events do change, but most major decisions remain the same. The new exploration system, while fitting is largely dull as you attempt to explore you are constantly interrupted by enemy forces that if they catch you triggers an automatic game over making everything more tedious than it has to. The new multiplayer mode offers exciting new game play options, the game itself is similar to horde mode from Gears of War, it pits up to 4 players in a wave based survival mode for 11 rounds, until they can be extracted from the combat zone, these missions are plot wise based upon the actions of other units / races in the war vs the reapers across the galaxy. Many have reported bugs with the game however i have found none, the DLC itself is not required to play the game, and honestly the player is not missing much by not buying it, that said if you are willing to get it i would recommend it even though all you get is a little galactic history, a few jokes and an alien version of Zaeed. This review was not ment to tell you whether you should buy the game or not, simply to allow the audience to know why others are disappointed, however while the games end isent brilliant the game as a whole is, i would not like to see people ignoring a great game and series finale based on a single mistake that may be amended in the future.

Mass Effect 3 is an excellent game! Having played all three Mass Effect games, I can say this truly is a an amazing coming-together, of all aspects of the story. It is a real treat seeing how the characters and interactions have evolved over the course of the three games, and the third instalment ties it all in brilliantly. The combat has fluidly progressed too; you barely notice any difference and the addition of some new features is seamlessly integrated. Everything in Mass Effect 3 is thoroughly enjoyable - the investigating, the combat, and most of all, the coming-together of the story. I highly recommend it.
