"Mass Effect"

The Ending is wrong on so many levels. It doesn't make sense and its so poorly done; worst of all it completely goes against the philosophy of the previous two games making a mockery of all those careful choices and work you had done. In fact all the endings are identical.

The company spokesperson says it is ‘a bittersweet ending’, its bitter no sweet. I think perhaps a heroic option would have been good, full of sacrifice sure, but one where you have some control of the fate of the universe instead of ‘you never did.’

If you really want to understand how gamers feel about it. Look at the u tube video featuring Hitlers reaction to it very funny.

3 stars "Could have done better"

The mechanics are terrible.
A single button to do everything, a terrible idea.
Your character wont do what you want them to do most of the time and will end up getting you killed many many times. Could have been all fixed if you were simply allowed to crouch and run without first having to glue your back to a wall.

Story was typical bioware story(excellent), apart from the end, which offered little closure(even with one of the best endings) nor did it enlist any emotion, making all the brilliant story beforehand
Irrelevant.

Reasonable game. Not quite worth what I paid for it.

3 stars "Mixed Results"

The gameplay has been streamlined and in my opinion an improvement over the earlier games.
The story build was was very compelling and had that epic feel to it.
Alas, the “ending” feels like they ran out of ideas, as there is no closure or satictory conclusion to the story and all the end options feel the same.

2 stars "BioWare drops the ball, again."

Not since Dragon Age 2 has BioWare fumbled this badly. The previous Mass Effect Games were well written Action/RPG adventures allowing you to play in your own Sci-fi movie. However, the third installment leaves much to be desired, the one positive comment I can make is that the combat in the third game shines far and above the other two. That being said it seems they sacrificed just about every thing else. The game is stunningly linear, with a string of main quest planets that you will visit in exactly the same order every time, the dialogue options (when you get them) have been thinned down to a meager 2 choices (Save kitties or burn orphanages) which you will be offered maybe once or twice per cutscene, greatly reducing the interactivity and choice.

When the game launched there was a minor small bug by which if you tried to import a character from the first and second games into the third, it would mess up the face. BioWare have since claimed to fix this issue, however for many the problem persists. I mention this to indicate the kind of Quality this game does not possess, when the CORE FEATURE of the series can have this kind of bug which escaped notice we may glimpse BioWare's focus on their new casual mainstream market and less on their traditional fanbase (Which departs them in droves)

The biggest flaw many have noted is the ending (singular) Promised an ending which would culminate all the choices made over the three games what gamers got instead was a magical ending choice room, where one may choose whatever ending one wants regardless of prior actions and then they show you a cutscene with different coloured lights. Multiple ending games should be a branching tree of diverse endings, not a sharpened pencil. The ending situation is so bad that it overshadows the many other flaws this game has with its roleplaying aspects. If you are a BioWare fan and you haven't already been repelled by Dragon Age 2. Don't buy this game, it may seal the deal.

As an addendum the IGN review quoted above (which I shall again quote here :-
""…All told, Mass Effect 3 is an absolutely amazing game, one that successfully puts a bow on the Mass Effect trilogy while still leaving us hungry for even more. It looks and plays great, but Mass Effect 3's true strength lies in its ability to tell a deeply-woven story. Better yet, the sheer ambition shown by BioWare in announcing an intersecting trilogy complete with save importation becomes fully realized in Mass Effect 3. BioWare deserves applause for not only having the courage to attempt something like the Mass Effect trilogy, but for pulling it off with such exceptional poise and skill. Mass Effect 3 isn't the best game ever made. But it'll certainly be in the conversation for a very long time to come."

This must have been written by someone who has either
A: Never played the game
B: Without a clue
Or
C: Received a large sack with a dollar sign on it from EA

** Addendum: It is worth noting that the Better Business Bureau feels BioWare may be guilty of false advertising in regards to Mass 3 particularly in relation to Your choices having consequence and shaping the end.

Description

“All told, Mass Effect 3 is an absolutely amazing game” – 9.5/10 – IGN

Not everyone will survive. An ancient race known only as “Reapers”, has launched an all-out invasion leaving nothing but a trail of destruction in their wake. Earth Has been taken, the galaxy is on the verge of total annihilation, and you are the only one who can stop them. The price of failure is extinction…

  • You are Commander Shephard, a character that you can forge in your own image.
  • You determine how events will play out, which planets to explore, and whom to form alliances with as you rally a force to eliminate the Reaper threat once and for all.
  • How you wage this war is completely up to you: go into combat with guns blazing or use cover to plan a more tactical assault. Utilise your squad to full effect or take a lone wolf approach. Rain death from a distance or go toe-to-toe with enemies using devastating melee attacks.
  • Mass Effect 3 will react to each decision you make as you play through a truly unique experience of your own creation.

Features:

  • A rich, branding storyline: Experience a sci-fi epic with multiple endings determined by your choices and actions throughout the game.
  • Massive in scope: Battle on many worlds across the galaxy as you unite the ultimate force to take back Earth before it's too late.
  • Large-scale and intelligent enemies: Battle enormous enemies and take on a smarter type of foe that will consistently challenge your best combat tactics and put you on the edge of your seat.
  • Unlock customisable arsenal: Tailor each weapon with devastating upgrades including scopes, barrels and dozens of other unique attachments. Each weapon boasts its own powerful impact and visual flair.
  • Unleash death from afar or go toe-to-toe: Customise your soldier and squad to engage the enemy on your own terms. A huge variety of weapons, abilities and equipment allow you to combat the enemy in your preferred style of play.
