Product Description

Platform: PlayStation3 | Edition: Standard | Format: Box

Manufacturer's Description

Go weapons-hot in a fully immersive sci-fi epic that reacts to every decision you make.

Not everyone will survive. An ancient alien 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 Shepard, 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. Utilize 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, branching 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 the 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 a customizable arsenal: Tailor each weapon with devastating upgrades including scopes, grips, 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: Customize your soldier and squad to engage the enemy on your terms. A huge variety of weapons, abilities and equipment allow you to combat the enemy in your preferred style of play.

5.0 out of 5 stars Incredible Experience 14 Jan 2013
By djneill
Access Method:Box| Platform for Display:PlayStation3| Edition:Standard|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This game is incredible, end of. If you enjoyed the game-play of the previous games this one builds upon it very nicely not taking anything away but adding enough to make it feel fresh to someone who has played through both of the previous games many times. That's all well and good however what you are really playing this game for is the story and the total immersion into the mass effect universe that we have come to expect. There are moments in this game that rival any other moment in gaming history for the sheer power of the emotions that they elicit. This game isn't just a journey through an imaginary land to save the universe like every other rpg ever it is an experience that should be tried at least once by anyone who calls them self a gamer, this trilogy should go down as one of the greats in the history of the medium. There has been a lot of hype about the ending and how disappointing it is, and how disappointed i felt at the end of this game is a testament to how incredibly this universe has been crafted because i truly felt with each of the endings that i had truly sacrificed something and really lost out, I'm the sort of person who prefers a happily ever after ending but this genuinely was better because it was so well crafted and powerful which would have been completely lost if you could have saved everything without a scratch from the reapers. The story ruined me for other games it was so good i can no longer fully enjoy other games stories because not since i first played final fantasy VII have i cared so much about the characters and the overall outcome of this game. Along with the story you also get amazing graphics and the chance to see your painstakingly crafted femshep get it on with sexy blue aliens which can never be a bad thing. Read more ›

This is the third series and if you have not played the last 2 absolutely and completely recommended that you do so. Very easy to use and simple to understand in progressing through the story line. Battle sequences are absolutely amazing.

A real life feel about the whole game and the Graphics are the best I have seen in any game I have played before. If you are an RPG fan don't miss playing this Title and the previous 2. only 1 down side to this 3rd installment is the planetary harvesting system has been removed which I had enjoyed in the second game in this series.

Shepeard is Awesome and I hope there will be more in this series.

Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
As a huge fan of the mass effect trilogy I was excited about playing the new edition, and to be entirely fair to Bioware, there is much in this game that delivers, however there is also much that lets it down, and shattered my enjoyment for the title.

The good: The gameplay is more fluid than the previous titles, and whilst keeping some of the more important aspects has added new dimensions such as jumping that make the game a more enjoyable experience. Much of the storyline is fantastic,seeing old and new faces, as well as old and new locations made the game enjoyable from the get go, never before have I wanted to shed a tear over a video game, nor felt proud of a character within one, but this game made me feel both of these emotions no matter how hard I tried not to! of course as a fan who has played since the start you're always going to have niggles, but even these were few and far between.

The DLC 'from ashes' was also very enjoyable and well worth the extra money I paid for it, it added a whole new dimension in the game and perspective of the galaxy.

Also, as someone who generally isn't very good at shooter games, and has never previously touched online gameplay, I found this element very enjoyable, with how it ties into the main game without being a direct part being an added bonus.

The bad: There were a large amount of glitches in the game, the worst of which rendered much of the first section of my game unplayable as I could not access an entire area, as everytime I tried to do so my ps3 crashed, which meant starting it back up and waiting for it to check there were no issues.

Its not just a great fast pace shooter, Its great roll play. Some people think the ending was a bit weak I thought it was good. Recommend to any fast pace shooter fans.

Access Method:Box|Platform for Display:PlayStation3|Edition:Standard
This is an Amazing game and gives you a lot to do but it needs more to it because once you start playing you just want MORE and MORE and to get more you have to start the game again
But still I love this game and I recommend buying it

5.0 out of 5 stars Not the best ending but well worth playing 25 Dec 2012
By Kenny
Access Method:Box| Platform for Display:PlayStation3| Edition:Standard|Verified Purchase
I started my Mass Effect adventure back on the Xbox. I loved the story from the first game, but I found the action a bit tedious at the start to play it a second time. The second game is my all time favourite game with a very involving and satisfying story, and the action was so much fun that I had no issue playing it multiple times. In fact when I moved from Xbox to PS3 I bought the second game for the PS3 as well.

Therefore, I was always going to buy this third instalment, even despite all the bad press regarding the ending. Although I did wait until Bioware has issued the free expansion before buying this.

Story wise, I found that it started very well and it was great to see some of characters from the previous games, the ending wasn't very satisfying but the free expansion does help a lot. However, I was disappointed in the very small role some of the characters from the previous games played. ***SPOILER ALERT: My main problem with the story is that the writer killed off some of my favourite characters. Towards the end it felt like every cameo character was only turning up to be killed.***

In terms of action, I found it even slightly better than the second game, so I really liked it and will have no problems playing it multiple times. Your character can now use any weapon, so you will never be without the fantastically fun sniper rifle (unless you want to minimise the weight which attracts penalty on power recharge time).

I tried the multi-player once, but it wasn't my cup of tea. Everything worked very well but I enjoyed mass effect for the story, and there's very little story in killing wave after wave of enemies, and you obviously can't use the power wheel to pause the action and assess your strategy. The good news is that you don't have to play the multi-player to fully enjoy the story and it is there if you want it.
