5.0 out of 5 stars Not the best ending but well worth playing, 25 Dec 2012

This review is from: Mass Effect 3 (PS3) (Video Game)
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.
