Summary: If you love mass effect, you will hate this game. If you carried your many, in my case dozens, of shepards through the first two games, please, don't load them up into this dreamcrusher that they call mass effect 3. Everything that made the first two games amazing is lacking. The plot has more holes that a metal seive. Most character development is poor, and many well-loved characters are simply not there. The ending is the worst thing I have ever experieced in my life.
EA activation policies are counter productive to gaming
6 May 2012
Summary: Purchased a used version of the game. Installed easily then refused to activate. EA has a policy that any product of theirs will never be reused. After 2 weeks of negotiation, EA said I could activate this product if I paid them a second time. REally soured the gaming experience. Not a good review of company products or procedures. I'm going to think hard before I buy any further EA or UB Soft products.
Does not live up to the first 2 games. Nonsense ending.

Summary: By now most everyone is aware of the ending controversy that has been so fervent that Bioware is going to release additional content to serve as clarification to the ending but yet not change the ending so as to preserve their "artistic integrity" (nothing artful and they have no integrity). But without deeply delving into this controversy (google it if you need to) and getting into spoiler territory I can attest to the horrid, unworthy and unfinished feel of the ending.
I can't see the appeal of this one! Way too many cutscenes!!!!
27 April 2012
Summary: I can't see the appeal of this one. There are so many cutscenes and so little action. Don't get me wrong when there is action and shooting it's great but those scenes are few and far between! It's like watching a bad c grade scifi movie. We have been gaming for years and never have we seen so many cutscenes period, it leaves one wondering why we even have to choose responses in the endless cutscenes.
