Summary: Okay game play is fun... Would have ended a solid trilogy, but alase the ending left three games and a few years of envistment on the players part like time wasted. I almost feel worst for the people who worked on these games to have such a poor game be released that tarnishes all their hard work.
"Would-be great game/series killed tragic ending."
20 April 2012
Pros: Graphics (maybe) - the backgrounds in a lot of places were pretty good. (Some) Improved mechanics.
Cons: Decisions of past games carry very little weight on campaign and none on the end. No end boss fight. Illogical ending. Zero story and character closure including teammates. Lack of variety in endings.
Summary: Since many other reviewers have gone through 'expectation vs reality' with regards to ME3, I will now go through what I feel having played through the single player and the multiplayer. The single player story, I'm sure, everyone knows about. The ending is what ruins it. None of your previous choices have any kind of impact. This was truly bait and switch; we expected complete autonomy over the storyline, and instead we got three different colours at the end. Fantastic.
Summary: When I finished this game I was tempted to entitle this review "AWFUL" and give a one-star review. That would have been unfair, because as a stand-alone game ME3 isn't THAT bad - Not outstanding, but better than many games. If you've not played any of the previous series, then take this as at least a 3-star review. Initially you'll find that the 3D animation is a bit amateurish in places, but you'll get used to that, and it's no worse than many games.
Summary: Upon completion of ME3 I was left with a feeling of awe. Awe at what had been done to a brilliant series. As everyone knows, the last 10 minutes of the game itself are truly horrendous, but allover the game is thoroughly disappointing. The majority of the game is entertaining and had me enthralled, completing it over the course of only 3 days (roughly 45hours play time), but the factor that made ME1 and ME2 such great games, the characters, has been completely ruined in...
Summary: Honestly, I'm not quites sure why I found Mass Effect 2 completely addictive while with Mass Effect 3 after completing half of the game, I virtually had to force myself to finish it. And I didn't even mind the end that much. Maybe because it was all new with ME2, whereas here they practically redid ME2 without the elaborated bits.
Summary: - The good stuff - The game has some spectacular levels, like the first level on earth and walking in space to the Geth ship, they really worked on the landscapes. The weapons are so much easier to get, they all fire differently, combat is much more improved from the 2nd game, you can now roll, jump over cover, throw grenades, use the omni tool as a blade, aww you can also run now without getting tired after 5 steps.
