Good game. Played the extended ending version (DLC)
4 weeks ago
Summary: Good game. Played the extended ending version (DLC). Had a good time. Don't understand why people hated the ending, other than the main character kicking the can. Is there a version where he doesn't? Major sad. Definitely epic. Maybe he has a kid that ends up in ME 4? I think they should end it with 3, since I doubt Bioware can come up with something as good as the trilogy. Kinda like DA2, where there's a big fun factor that's underrated.
Summary: I'm still playing it but as a fan of the first two I can tell how they improve so much game after game. I can't believe how fluid (controls, graphics, conversations, animations..) everything is! My packaging came in great condition. Everything worked. The only thing I hate is Origin. You have to DOWNLOAD THIS GAME regardless. The game is not on any of the two CDs apparently.
Summary: This game is the most amazing thing I ever discovered. I fell in love with every mission, character, location in the game and could hardly get away from it, but then I got to the ending and my blind love faded away... Could be worse, but still it was heart- squeezing gameplay. I find it really emotional game- not just shooting to alien things. If not the ending, project could be a lot more succesful, I suppose.
One of the best games ever (except for the ending)

Summary: The Mass Effect series has been one of the best gaming franchises, providing an immersive experience with an engaging background story. Things are perfect right until the ending. Much has been written about the ending so I will not go into it here. Suffice to say that the fan revolt prompted Bioware to do an Extended Version of the ending (can be downloaded via Origin). As for the DRM, compared to Steam, Origin is pretty bad with random disconnects being the norm.
Summary: Got a great deal on this...if you're patient, you can catch it 50% off or more (which is what I did). Newegg service is amazing as usual, never been disappointed. (Knocks on wood!) You might want to take my praise of the gameplay itself with a grain of salt, as I am a diehard Mass Effect junkie...but they managed to integrate the best features from 1 and 2 into this one.
Pros: 1. Arrived VERY quickly (actually on my birthday, my mother sprang some cash for me to get it, and I wasn't expecting it till the Monday after). 2. Arrived in excellent working condition, plopped it onto my computer and was smooth sailing. 3. If you're a big sap like me, you're in for a treat. I laughed, I cried, I laughed some more. After my first playthrough, I ended up adding single-player mods (as typically I stay away from multi player stuff). 4. If you love acti...
Cons: It didn't clean my room while installing. :p Seriously, none!
