Review by Anthony on 25th March, 2012
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.

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.

"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.

Review by Chris on 14th March, 2012
3 stars ""If the Journey justifies the Destination""

This game is great… until the last 5 minutes. They really dropped the ball. The endigns are nonsensical. They make no sense and do not feel satisfying or have any closure.

You don't know what happens to your crewmates.

And for those who have played the whole series it feels like a betrayal.

P.S. There are only 3 endings. P.P.S. You destroy the galaxy you want to save to save it.

Other wise this game is fun, well designed and worth playing.

1 stars "I will NEVER buy anything that requires origin AGAIN EVER!"

I have had this game for maybe 2 weeks now and am still unable to install it!

It requires that you have an origin account (a copy of steam for those who dont know). I already had one from playing Battlefield 3 so this wasnt a problem.

The problem occured when I tried to install and it asked for my game code (CD key), which I entered and it it continued past, then it starts to download 10gig instead of installing from the 2 DVD's I have!-!- WTH is going on here- Surely I must have clicked something wrong right… Apparently not, I googled it and found pages and pages of people having the same problem and at least 5 different ways, different people have managed to get around it. None of which have worked for me.

I have bounced emails back and forth to EA help to no avail. They continue to send me links to forums about "check for scratches on your CD, or maybe you have a virus/spyware, and other info about updating/changing settings on windows 98/XP/ME when Im running Win7!

I am totally discusted with the level of service from EA and wish I bought it for my PS3 instead because I could have not only finshed the install, but probably even the game!

2 weeks of owning the game and cant even install it… Wouldnt recommend the PC version to anyone!

“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.


  • 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.

Review by IGN

“…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.”
