Mass Effect 3
I have been a big fan of this series for a long time and I can not help but think that this is going to be the game of the year. I'm going to play this over and over. Whats been shown is already amazing so I'm hoping this can meet my expectations like I'm sure everybody else wants it to as well.
A shadow of it's former self..
I've played Mass effect 1 when it first came out, absolutely loved it, Great ending. I've played Mass effect 2 when it first came out, absolutely lovely, the ending depended on you and how you acted. Mass effect 3? Gameplay was astounding, Graphics had a bit of a upgrade, but the story is hardly there, it felt exactly like Mass effect 2, you find your old buddies, attempt or actually save earth, There is literally 3 endings, but with 6 different "how the ending ends". I was extremely disappointed with the ending, like the 90% of Hardcore mass effect people are. Multi-player is extremely fun, Only 4 maps though but it is fun. I would say buy this just to support the company to make a spin off of this, but if you don't care then rent. Oh and multiplayer requires a online pass so renters you'll miss out since this is the first Mass effect to have multi-player. Anyways heres to bioware making a new Mass effect with a new lead man/woman.
just finished the demo
i just finished the demo, and have to say this game looks to top most of all things that make this franchise great, the score and cinematic moments make this game very compelling and emotional. reunions, guys, reapers, and the kinect suprisely made the gameplay flow more smoothly then before im hyped and pumped! for it my opinion game of the year! 9.9 out of ten just because its not here yet!
An All-Around Amazing Adventure!
Overall, this game was stunning. It sucked me right into it, and it was pretty much the only game I played until i finished it. The game-play was great, the story was pretty well done, as was the soundtrack. The only real problems were the linear side missions, which there were few of anyways, and the ending, which was quite disappointing, considering all the time you put into the series. The multiplayer is fun, but gets repetitive after a while. All-in-all, i still think the original Mass Effect was the best, but this was quite a spectacular game, which any lover of science-fiction RPG's should own.
Amazing story, graphics, and gameplay!
The Mass Effect series has been around for a while, but the more I ask around my circle of gamer friends, the more I realize it's not nearly as popular as it should be! I played the demo only to be AMAZED by the amount of customization and content it had to offer, and cannot wait for the full game. If you haven't tried Mass Effect yet I would say pick up 1 and 2 before 3 hits shelves, well worth the playthrough and you will be able to customize your storyline through all 3 games by loading an old character! Woohoo
Mass Effect 3 Beta Multiplayer Demo
As one of the special few who had the chance to try the multiplayer demo upon release, I had the great privilege and honor to test the online co-op multiplayer demo. As an avid Mass Effect fan I can only state that the demo promises of great things to come. Despite a few hitches only encountered in the hottest of fighting, Mass Effect 3 has more to offer than any other game on the market. With a wide variety of weapons, characters and abilities to level up, there is definitely a high replayability here, giving player many hours of exciting combat, rich story telling and visceral combat. All in all, Mass Effect 3 deserves a 5 out of 5.
Mass Effect 3; To Blowing Out Candles
The game's graphics are hardly ground breaking, and importing a character from a previous instalment is glitched.
Also several glitches occur during game play, for instance dialog starting before character sprites load.
Several issues with the sound, I found it difficult to make out some dialog in scenes due to ambient sound. If you do play the game use subtitles.
The storyline though riveting comes to non-stellar conclusion, which ruins the replay value of not only this game but the previous installments.
The game itself is average, and it the biggest letdown of the year.
I had some complaints for when the Demo came out (for the odd walking and not so amazing cover controls), but this game completely delivers! The emotions are a whole lot better for the big impact of scenes, and the story is quite flawless. Props to Bioware and EA Games for making the Mass Effect Trilogy the best that I've ever known. My recommendations? Get it!
a great acomplishment
ME3 is a fantastic game and a great acheivement. the singleplayer was a fantastic and fun experience nomatter what class you choose to play as however you will have more fun on hardcore until the end and a class that is better atunded to your playstyle will be more fun. single player aside the multiplayer is the real fun of the game oddly enough the multiplayer (just download all free DLC) the multiplayers gambling style of getting new characters and guns is compleatly adicting and intense not to mention it is very fun to killsteal from your friends and whatch their reaction. multiplayer or singleplayer the game has a wonderful soundtract and sound effects, everything from shots to biotic attacks sounds wonderful and intense. all in all ME3 is a fantastic game that cannot be overlooked
Worst of the Series
After playing the game from beginning to end doing every possible thing and doing all the endings, I have to say I am highly disappointed. While the overall game play was good and the multiplayer was a fun innovation, the endings ruined the entire series.
Not going to spoil anything, but if you get this game you will understand. I don't even want to touch this game or the previous ones again due to its horrible, plot hole riddled endings.
