EGM: "Mass Effect 3: Special Edition is the same game as previously released on other systems, but the first two games of the series are glaringly absent from the Wii U. To make up for that, the developer included a motion comic to catch players up on the previous story. It’s lacking, but what can you do? Other Wii U enhancements include the ability to view maps, enemy locations and party status on the GamePad, which is extremely useful. All in all, Mass Effect 3 is a great RPG and deserves to be played. If this is your only option, then by all means, have at it. But if you can play the first two games first, that’s still the best way to experience this grand saga."
