Summary: Mass Effect 3 is almost a perfect conclusion to the Mass Effect Reaper Trilogy. It looks and sounds absolutely fantastic, the gameplay is sharp and very satisfying, the story is fascinating, and there is a ton to do. Pretty much everything is excellent.
Excerpt: It’s about time we showed some more love for the game fans hated with unequalled passion earlier this year for its ending, and BioWare has done a significant amount in this latest DLC to rectify the issues people had with the only other proper single player content, From Ashes.
Excerpt: Commander Shepard isn’t playing around anymore. Within the first hour of Mass Effect 3, Earth is ravaged by the Reapers, the colossal squid-like robots that he spends the first two Mass Effect games thwarting, seemingly to no avail. The Council still wallows in denial and idiotic bureaucracy.
Excerpt: An apathetic use of pristine source material, Mass Effect 3’s latest downloadable episode, which sees Sheppard helping the powerful Asari ‘leader’ of the criminal underworld Aria T’Loak retake Omega Station from Cerberus troops, is a piece of content that should have garnered better summations than...
Conclusion: I loved Citadel, and I’m looking forward to going through it again with my second playthrough, seeing how it fits when integrated to the game as a whole. For the last piece of DLC in the Mass Effect trilogy, this is a perfect goodbye, and a final high for the series.
Excerpt: Excuse us while we get a little teary over this third and final add-on for Mass Effect 3 . As the game’s last piece of downloadable story content, Citadel is an affecting farewell to this particular branch of the Mass Effect universe — a saga that’s had us cheering, medi-gelling, and romancing (and...
Pros: + A warm, fuzzy send-off to Shepard and the, + Gameplay and objectives feel incredibly varied; plenty of mini-game activities.
Cons: ? How long would it take to do 182 pull-ups in real life?
Excerpt: The Mass Effect series will be remembered as one of the greatest RPG sci-fi epics of all time and even though the final game in the series caused a huge uproar over the internet due to the ending, the pros still outweighed the cons.
Mass Effect 3: Omega is explosive, nostalgic, and somewhat pointless (review)
17 December 2012
Conclusion: Mass Effect 3 is a spectacular game — one that deserves a lot of credit, especially during this time of the year. Unfortunately, the controversy centered on its hotly debated ending has overshadowed the impressive downloadable content that BioWare introduced.
Pros: Welcome back to the madness that is Omega Mass Effect 2 introduced players to the criminal-friendly wonderland known as Omega and its iron-fisted ruler, Aria T’Loak. You’ll return to the shady, asteroid-based space station for some spirited firefights during BioWare’s latest downloadable ME3 side...
Cons: The whole thing is a little pointless Omega’s premise is shaky at best. You, playing as mega-hero Shepard, agree to help out the dubious Aria regain her station from the antagonist Cerberus general Oleg Petrovsky … in the middle of an everything’s-at-stake, galaxy-wide war. Why? Commander Shepard...
