A game's worst sin? Knocking you out of character.
3 March 2015
Summary: This installment in the series suffers from a critical overflow in drama. To understand this, we must back up, and look at the first two games, which follow clear themes; Mass Effect 1 was all about exploration.
Summary: Obviously, first we need to talk about the ending. I didn't really mind it. People say it doesn't matter what you choose, because you get the same 3 choices for endings anyway, but Bioware themselves said before the release that no matter what, Shepard saves the galaxy.
Summary: Overall probably the toughest combat in the series, very rewarding to beat certain sections. However, they really cut down on the rpg elements of the game, resulting in less character conversation options and an overall lack of immersion.
Summary: Overall still a good game, fell short of the bar set by 1 and 2 in just about all aspects but still has its shining moments, despite the black eye 3 is on the series, the series as a whole is still one of the best, and I highly recommend checking this trilogy out if you never played it.
Pros: Addictive and simple multiplayer. Environments were great, some collision and item interaction bugs in the cut scenes but nothing I haven't seen before. If you like TPS action you can't go wrong here. Characters don't quite meet the bar set by 2 but still excellent work. That's what really made t...
Cons: If you're one of the few, like me, that actually played this series 1,2,3 as opposed to 2,3,1 like most, or 3,2,1 like a few others then you will notice the huge change from RPG centric to TPS centric. That's been my biggest gripe, Mass Effect was supposed to be a RPG from an RPG developer and wi...
Summary: I loved ME and ME2 and eagerly awaited the finale. I was very disappointed in this game. It was so unimaginative and had overtones of just stealing from the competition. The facial and body animation is a throwback to poor attempts like in Deus Ex HR.
Summary: Haven't reached the end yet, but I watched the spoiler before buying. Enjoying it for the most part, I thought it was a little racist that the one Latino character is all full of himself and swears at you.
Summary: Great game, but knock 1 star off for bad ending and another for banning mods on PC version. Let's start with the good - graphics, voice acting, gameplay, etc. It's even more simplified from the ME2, which itself was simplified from ME1, but it isn't yet to the point of being dull.
