Product Description

Platform: Xbox 360 | Edition: Standard | Format: Box

Mass Effect 3 is a Role-playing Game (RPG) / Third-Person Shooter hybrid set in a Science Fiction universe. Mass Effect 3 is the third game in the popular Mass Effect series, and is rumored to be the final installment. In it players continue the adventures of Commander Shepard utilizing extreme character customization which is the hallmark feature of the series. Additional features include: the ability to import decisions from both of the previous games into the new game, ownership/play of previous games not required, customizable weapons, improved mobility and melee combat, many returning characters (if they were not killed off in previous imported games), an improved cover system that allows for more action, compatibility with the Kinect Sensor for Xbox 360 and more.

Better with Kinect--Exclusive to Xbox 360

In Mass Effect 3, you can use Kinect for Xbox 360 and your voice to issue commands.

  • Control Shepard - To issue commands to Commander Shepard, simply say what you want to do. "Switch Weapon" to quickly change weapons, speak the name of the weapon ("shotgun", "assault rifle", etc) to switch to a specific weapon, say "open" to open something, "examine" to get a closer look, or say the name of an ammo type ("Incendiary ammo", "Cryo ammo", etc) to switch to specific ammo.
  • Control your squadmates - Say the name of the squad member, followed by the action you want him or her to take. Use the aiming recticle, when appropriate, to target the action. For example, say "Liara Singularity" and use the aiming recticle to command Liara to use her singularity power on a specific target, "James Switch Weapon" to command James to quickly change weapons, "Garrus Sniper Rifle" to command Garrus to switch to his sniper rifle or "Tali Follow" to get Tali to follow you.
  • Take Control During Conversations - Rather than choosing your response on your controller, Kinect for Xbox 360 allows you to simply speak your response choice.

The Final Chapter in the Mass Effect Trilogy

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.

Key Game 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 Miniscule spoilers alert! 12 July 2014
By Jeeves
Access Method:Box|Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Edition:Standard
Sublime. Mass Effect 3 is the culmination of what has become not only one of the most perfectly realised examples of gaming to date, but one of the most sophisticated sci-fi narratives in any medium.
Whilst the first Mass Effect was often a bit of a chore, behind the repetetive Mako missions and overly expositionary dialogue, the potential for the series shone through thanks to it's strong characterisation and complex multi-threaded story.
With number two, the creative team did an incredible job of streamlining the in-game combat mechanics and sharpening the dialogue whilst ingeniously integrating multiple versions of all of ME1's major plot points into the sprawling continuation of the saga as they steered the story in a bold new direction. One which enabled the Mass Effect universe to open up in unimaginable ways.
With number three, all of the improvements made in number two have been refined to the point of flawlessness. This is a living, breathing universe populated by complex people and peoples with their own individual and collective concerns and prejudices. And the reality of the Mass Effect universe is particularly appropriate for a story that puts so much focus on the question: at what point does an artificial intelligence cease to be artificial? And: is a synthetic being any less alive than an organic one?
The sheer enormity of the narrative is truly dizzying to consider, having snowballed across it's two epic predecessors to reach this point not just once, but numerous times to allow for all of the alternatives resultant from countless decisions that the player has made throughout the series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fitting Conclusion 18 July 2013
Access Method:Box| Platform for Display:Xbox 360| Edition:Standard|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
There has been plenty of controversy regarding this games ending, however i found it to be a fitting conclusion to the series. Again the gameplay and graphics have been refined and the script is as good as ever, add that to a multiplayer mode which lets you play as different species and you have a winner. This is one of the best game series of our generation and i would urge people to try it out- start from the beginning as it is interesting to see how choices you made in the first and second games affect this one.

3.0 out of 5 stars Amazing untill.. the ending ! 18 Mar. 2012
Access Method:Box|Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Edition:Standard
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
From the start this game was fantastic....

The game play has been improved and it feels a lot smoother with the addition of the new 'hold down B' melee which is a great new edition.

The graphics are also fantastic, i was most impressed with the graphics of the many different planets you can fly around in the Normandy and i was impressed with the graphics on the citadel as well. Furthermore, BioWare designed The Citadel very impressively, there are many different floors on it where there are different types of buildings on each, there are Bars, Hospitals and Embassies to explore with plenty of missions.

I have no quarrels with the companions, they all bring there own banter. There is a couple of new companions but most are ones from the previous games e.g Garrus who is my personal favorite, Liara- the sexy one, in a weird alien blue way- and Kaidan and Ashley. The only problem i have with the companions is the first day DLC in which BioWare made 800 MSP, and i thought the plot was too important to not put in the actual game which i thought was a bad move, the companion you get with this DLC is very good though.

The missions were all gripping and had excellent twists so i had no problem with those.

I loved the choices throughout the game, with the paragon and renegade options which i believed would impact the end of the game, this is why i made my choices carefully and i was looking forward to the outcomes.

I was bitterly disappointed with the ending.... all these choices i carefully chose and thought about had no impact at all. It had no impact which species you sided with or what your battle readiness was or how many fleets you had. You still ended up with the sam 3 endings to choose from, all of which were dreadful....

3.0 out of 5 stars A great game ruined by a poor ending 18 Mar. 2012
By Macca
Access Method:Box|Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Edition:Standard
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I'm going to keep this review short because I mostly have the same issues with the game as most others, the ending. The game itself is actually very good up until the last 10 minutes or so. It isn't quite as good as Mass Effect 1 or 2 but it's not a 1 star game by any means, the 1 star reviews are most likely just from bitter fanboys rather than people objectively rating the game. My one gripe with the gameplay is that it is too shooter based compared to the previous 2 games, almost every trace of RPG has been removed. There aren't as many places to explore and there isn't as much dialogue as in previous games, this dampened the experience of the game somewhat for me. It's already been said but the ending is very weak, none of the choices made in this game or the previous games matter at all and you basically choose from 1 of 3 endings, all of which are almost identical anyway. Some of the big plot resolutions at the end make no sense either and are laden with plotholes and the endings themselves offer absolutely no closure to a series that many people including myself have put upwards of 100 hours into. Overall, a good game with an unfortunate final 10 minutes that somewhat defeats the entire premise that the franchise was built on; choice.
