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 just amazing. I have it on the PC and the Xbox. If you have the 2nd game it will let you do more if you copy your save over, there is plenty of free extras for the online. It's a really good game and I definitely recommend this. I have all of the Mass Effects and they all have a good story to them, especially as you can choose to be good or evil, male or female. It's just in the first game you can't be female, just to warn you. I can't wait for Mass Effect 4.
The Mass Effect games were always meant to be a trilogy and each one has just got better. Mass Effect 3 is best played if you import your character from the previous 2 games, as it retains all the decisions you made, but even if you haven't played the first 2, when you start a new game it asks you what decisions you would have made so you don't miss out on too much. If you're only going to play one Mass Effect game, this is the one to play! As for the game play, it's very similar to the previous games but the graphics are slightly better. However, this is the first Mass Effect that allows you to play the game as either an action game (where gun fights are harder and you don't need to make choices - they'll be cut-scenes instead), a narrative, where you have full control of conversations but the action parts are not as hard, or finally as the original two games were - a RPG. There's quite a lot of DLC and some of it is free, including the Extended Cut which adds extra scenes to the end of the game to show you how your decisions impacted on the universe. The only bad thing about this game is EA Origin. It could be good, but because you always need to be logged in to play, if you have a dodgy internet connection it is an issue.
Despite my youngest son's emphatic protest, I bought Mass Effect 3 as a whimsical stocking-filler for myself at Christmas. My son claimed that it had had terrible reviews, and the keyboard controls were totally inadequate; i.e the space bar is used for multiple commands, so there is sometimes a confusion when faced with multiple choices. I get around this by playing in casual mode, so if any keypad mishaps occur, I have time to correct them before fatality ensues. In story mode, the game is rather immersive. As a standalone, it's a pretty good reason to idle-away an afternoon.
Worthy conclusion to a great saga. With the extended finals it's a satisfying epilogue. Even better if you have played the entire trilogy on same system, so past decisions still have consequences.
Mass Effect 3 is a truly remarkable game that is a must have for any fan of the Mass Effect trilogy. Being in control of Commander Shepard in the final fight against the Reapers, teamed with the fantastic new combat system makes this game astonishing!
Great Game, not perfect, could have used a bit more in the way of proper side quests like in ME2 rather than the Fly to X Y Z systems and search for artifacts and such. The ending could also have been a bit clearer and had more detail on the final outcome and of what happened to Shephards companions , but with the released DLC to flesh it out a bit more it wasn't to bad even if mostly it wasnt actual cinematics and shown through some still life pictures. All in all though another great game set in the ME Universe 92/100. This ME trilogy is now complete, but may there be many more to come.
A game that doubles on its previous game play mechanics, story is a great element of the game but for me the multiplayer holds the longest and lasting impression; being a fun horde mode with a variety of combat styles and personas.
Mass Effect 3 is definitely this year's best RPG/Action game. It makes you want to go back to play Mass Effects 1 and 2. If you don't have Mass Effect 1 and 2, then go and buy them, now!
A solid conclusion to a great trilogy, heightened greatly by the fact that your Shepard, your crew, and your actions through all three games will now determine the fate of the galaxy.
I loved Mass Effect 3, the story, the pacing, and the extended ending are all amazing. The multiplayer is better than expected. It's a must play game!
Started off very good as is expected of the series, got a little disapointed with some of the choices and writing elements in the game, as well as the shortage of real side quests. The ending is better than most say, but the extended cut DLC improves it. Kind of mixed bag of good and bad, but overall comes out good.
So, Mass Effect 3. I didn't want to expect too much of it, because I expected too much of ME2 and was (mildly) disappointed by it. However, I'm happy to say that I was not at all disappointed by what I found when I broke out my copy of ME3. For starters, they've given the graphics a serious overhaul. The characters are a LOT more detailed -- although as a minor gripe, some of the NPCs' appearances have changed just a tiny bit. I mean -- Ashley's a soldier! She's not supposed to look that pretty! Shepard has also had a bit of a makeover, and although the basic features have stayed the same (you can still import your character from ME2), the quality looks a lot better. And for those who want to explore the romance options available, well, let's say there's eye candy regardless whether you like guys or girls. (Man, is it even POSSIBLE to have muscles that big IRL?) The dialogue and cutscenes are (as always) impressively done, and the improved graphical quality really shows here. There were only a very few places where wonky facial shadows were obvious, and even then they were less obvious than in the earlier games. However, I did find some of the 'positive' and 'negative' dialogue options to be less distinct from each other than I'd hoped. And the Paragon and Renegade conversation options confused me -- unlike in the first two games, it appeared that both were always available, regardless of my reputation points. Gameplay differs in feel from the first two games, partly because (IMO) the enemies are smarter, and partly because they just *look* different -- a lot more realistic, once again the improved graphics at work. The weapon weight mechanic was interesting, I thought, allowing you to choose between going armed to the teeth versus a lighter load but faster power use. My preference was an Infiltrator with only a sniper rifle and lightweight SMG -- I could pretty much spam any power as often as I felt the need to. All in all, I would have given the game 5/5 except for one thing -- one of the lamest endings I've ever seen in a game. Now, don't get me wrong, the ending was well done, just like the rest of the game. But after the first two Mass Effect games, you would expect to defeat the bad guys and emerge victorious in the ending credits, right? Well, I'll try not to spoil it too much for new players, but let's just say that there are three possible ending choices you are given -- and none of them is the "everyone lives happily ever after" option. Now, as I said, the endings weren't badly done; I just found myself a little disappointed that after all I'd been through in getting to the end of the game (damn it, I united the entire friggin' GALAXY to fight these guys!), these were all the choices I got -- and more so since nothing before that in the game led me to expect it to end that way. However, despite my complaints about the ending, I still give this game 4/5 for all-around enjoyment. I definitely recommend grabbing a copy if you at all enjoy this style of game, though perhaps if you haven't played the first two you might enjoy yourself more by getting hold of those first. Anyway, I'm off for my second play-through, this time with a badass renegade solder ...
Mass Effect 3 is an excellent addition to the RPG genre. I can't comment on the ending, as I've not reached that part yet. I've spent quite some time replaying my previous Mass Effect games for a good character to transfer over. What I have played of it though, got me hooked for 8 hours of gameplay. I highly reccomend Mass Effect 3 for anyone, regardless of whether they have the previous titles or not.
Overall, Mass Effect 3 has some flaws, but it's still an excellent game and worth your time, particulary as a returning player. For new players, the game rewrites some the dialogue to bring you to speed, but returning players will probably have the more satisfying game in terms of story. The combat system is much improved, as are the interactions on your ship. Some stripping of dialogue choices annoying, but they're not a game breaker. The choices you make, appear to matter on the journey - the final destination is a little confusing and lacks closure, but free Extended Cut DLC may improve this in the summer.
The main frustration with Mass Effect 3 is the video cutscenes. If you like action-packed shoot-em-up games, I'll warn you - you will spend most of your time being forced to watch the numerous cut scenes. I always play on the hardest difficulty level, which in this case, is called "insane", but I found it virtually impossible to beat, and the game will not allow you to chose a lower level in order to move on, so I had to start a new game on hardcore difficulty level. Everything else, is excellent.
This game is quite good. Combat is best in the trilogy, characters are mostly well designed; not as polished as in ME2 though. A lot of critique towards the game, some for a reason, some not so justified. Story quests has few epic highlights. Mostly bland/repetitive/chore-like side quests.
Mass Effect 3 is a very good game. If you liked the two other Mass Effect games, then it is definitely for you!
As always another wonderful game from Bioware. I have played Mass Effect from the beginning, so naturally could not wait to get my hands on the 3rd installment. Well worth the buy, and if you haven't already played them the previous 2 games were also excellent.
I like Mass Effect 3. I most liked the option to choose my history. I was expecting more but good game.
After not really getting too into the first two, I decided to give three a shot since all the reviews were extremely positive. After playing for a few hours I got hooked straight away and with hours and hours of gaming available with side missions, quests, explorations and all sorts, you get a huge amount of gaming hours for your money. Played it for a total of 20 plus hours in total and completed it, still didn't manage to do all the side quests so you can easily achieve over 20 hours of gaming if played through properly. The ending was simple and for all the people who complain I definitely think it's justified. Make a few choices and the game will end in different ways. Just how you need a huge scale game like Mass Effect to be. Funnel all of the experience down to a simple good/bad kind of ending. Altogether, very very happy with the game and will definitely be playing through the campaign again, and trying it online to see how good it lives up to in the multiplayer department.
