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.

I love Bioware games so much, the characters are incredible.
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.Read more ›
The choices you made in the previous games do affect the choices you can make in the main story missions and their outcomes, so you get to find out the long-term consequences of your decisions.
Combat has improved greatly over the three games. Simple things such as being able to roll and jump between defensive positions makes combat a lot more fluid.
Planet scanning remains although you are now pursued by Reaper ships if you do it too frequently. I'm in two minds as to whether this feature really works as it's fairly easy to avoid the ships and feels a bit too arcadey.
Voice acting and character depth are once again a strong point in the game. It really is cool that characters from the previous games may or may not be around depending on the choices you made.
While ME3 has gone forward in many areas it has sadly regressed in others. The fetch quests for instance are a mess as they don't update and many little touches (such as being able to delete emails) are gone. There's also one citadel mission that is glitched and crashes the system, exposing some pretty poor quality control.
One last tip - don't even think about finishing the game without the extended cut DLC installed. There's no feeling of a true endgame battle as it is, and yes, the original ending really is that bad and anticlimactic if you bear in mind this has been a series you've invested hours of playing time into. I'd recommend downloading all the other DLC too if you can as they really do add to the story.
Despite its flaws and that letdown ending, ME3 is a great close to the trilogy.
