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.
- 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.

Right at the start of the game you are presented with 3 options on how you wish to play the game: Action, story and RPG mode the middle being the "standard" gameplay with some input with conversations choices the Action one merely plays the cut scenes without any intervention whilst the last one puts the emphasis on non combat action. It's good to have a choice here as some players might want a more hands on experience and less of the chit chat of the cut scenes though they are slick and well produced.
The game is very polished in it's presentation with some decent voice acting and true to the more modern take of "trying to immerse" the player in the storyline this time the Reapers are attacking earth and with the odds stacked against humans it's a desperate battle for survival. Hardly the most original plot for a science fiction game but it holds together surprisingly well for a few reasons.
That is mostly down to the immersive experience if you're into this sci-fi theme (and I am) then you'll find the storyline appealing and the character development also to a high level it's the recent trend of trying to do a "movie/game" with epic plots and actors (of sorts) but with real player interaction and choices. Visually for the most part impressive and smooth though there are a few glitches at times with textures and some frame rate issues. Combat is more refined here with a better cover system (though not perfect) the RPG elements include choices about your characters personality and physical type (classes including infiltrator, soldier, engineer etc) levelling up and weapon upgrades/mods and squad members.Read more ›
Love this game, the number of options built in to the dialogue and the choices you can make in the story make for the most engaging experience, and really encourages you to get to grips with the mass effect universe. The weapons are great, you can customize everything from the armor and outfits to the physical look of your character, and the story is totally gripping, the whole experience is very addictive.
Don't think about it, just buy it, you won't regret it.
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.Read more ›
