Could have been better...but I liked it enough to play through it multiple times

  • Summary: 5 stars for the game play (I loved it) 1 star for some of the gyrations they put the story line through. The expanded ending helped...however some of the big momentous decisions from earlier games really had only a marginal impact. And it really was a Dues Ex machina type ending. Having said that...I have played through this game (and the entire series) multiple times. If you flesh out some of the details in the ending with head-canon then it can work quite nicely.

okay game

  • Summary: I think they tried to do too much and the end result was an okay control setup. Again, the cover system did not work well 100% of the time. I don't know if it was the game mechanics or the actual controls but it seemed broken at times. Melee combat was okay. Jumping over obstacles did not work correctly all the time either.

Didn't Preorder, so I Didn't Get the Best Copy

Tacoman Gaming, Amazon

  • Summary: Love the game, though I've only played the multi player so far. The box was in really beat up condition when it arrived. It seemed like it had been packed in sand for a while, then dusted off and sent to me. The box is just... not in great condition, upon opening, and the metal tin the game itself came in was dented upon delivery. Really a bummer since I paid so much extra for the CE. I probably won't be doing that again in the future.

A good game with a seriously flawed ending. 70/100 (-25 of 30 for ending)

  • Summary: Despite the 3/5 rating, I do recommend this game with one very important caveat I'll address shortly. To provide some context, readers should know I've played ME1, ME2 (including all DLC missions), and ME3 many times over several years on the Xbox 360. I've played both Shepard genders (though I have a bias toward the FemShep) and all classes (soldier, adept, etc.). In short, I'm reasonably well versed on the ME series.

It's no Mass Effect 2 that's for sure!

  • Summary: While the gameplay was great the first time around, it has very little replay value like the previous games. I have played through ME 1 & 2 several times, so I have a variety of Shepards. Each playthrough was pretty different. Even after the 4th or so playthrough, something cool and different would happen with both games. Not so with ME3. I am currently about half way through my second play through and it is almost identical to my first.

What happened?

Zi C., Newegg

  • Summary: superb action game but head scratching story ultimately dragged it down.
  • Pros: great shooter game through out. they really got the action mechanics down to a science on this one. movement was smooth and seamless. some intense boss fights and cool galaxy travels.
  • Cons: the story however was what's going on? so many holes and inconsistencies, like wreckage left behind by the Reapers. for an RPG game, Bioware really drop the ball -story wise. really disappointed with how they handled the ending. not because of how it ended but because of the lack of endings. the game structure is pretty much the same as ME2. running around the galaxy doing chores for this guy/gal or that race in order to gain there support against the Reapers.

  • Summary: Let me start off saying I love the Mass Effect series. Though Mass Effect 3 is a fun game overall, there are some major flaws. 1.The journal system is horrible, doesn't tell you what missions you completed till you actually go to the person you got it from, other wise it stays showing as active even after you got the object.. 2.Only two places to explore Normandy & The Citadel, unlike ME2 where you could run around Omega, Citadel, Illium etc.

Weak finish to a great series

Jay Wagner, Amazon

  • Summary: Not a bad game on its own, it just failed to deliver on the grand vision promised us at the beginning. Minus one star for not living up to its potential, and minus another star for the cop out ending. The big finish to the Mass Effect trilogy just fizzled out when it should have shone brightly. Since story is so important in a game like this, I'll start with that. From the first cut scene to the last, the story pacing felt off to me.
