Not a patch on Mass Effect 1 or 2. But WiiU controls are great.

Not a patch on Mass Effect 1 or 2. The story is a lot weaker than the originals. I did a little research, and it appears that the series writer quit after Mass Effect 2 and was replaced by 7 (YES SEVEN) writers. The results are lacklustre at best.
Let me put it another way, have you ever read a good book that was written by a team of seven authors?... Neither have I.
The graphics are good, as ever. The music is also good (although there's nothing new to hear, you've heard most of these tracks in the prequels).
Playing on the WiiU is ok, but there is a LOT of slow-down and low frame-rates. Especially in the Citadel. But it is nice to play it on the GamePad while housemates are using the TV. Also the GamePad map is awesome!!
I cannot recommend the game unfortunately, but if we ever see ME 1 or 2 appear on the WiiU... Snap them up!
