Mass Effect 3 Retrospective Review

Continue Play: "Mass Effect 3 is okay. I know I’m committing a sin of journalistic review by using an ambiguous term to describe the most recent game in a series that’s cemented itself as a standard for videogame storytelling. There’s not much I can do about that. That’s my honest opinion. It’s not phenomenal; it’s not atrocious. It’s just okay." (Mass Effect 3, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

This is the perfect example of an honest review. Mass Effect 3 is just okay; slightly better than mediocre in terms of narration and story while also being very poorly planned out as the finale. Far below BioWare's standards was this game. If it weren't for how great the first two games are, I would have never bothered playing the third one more than once.

Loved ME1, ME2 was pretty good but also pretty lame in some spots.

ME3, I didn't make it past 5-6 hours in. It was so boring.

I think ME3 is a great game. Not better than ME2 (this one is a 10). The game has it flaws but its definitely not an "okay" game.

I won't engage anyone i debate regarding the finale. But I'll just note that, inmy honest opinion, Mass Effect 3 was an AMAZING game overall, and the Mass Effect trilogy as a whole is one of my favorite experiences of the past generation.

Can't wait for a new Mass Effect game, That IP has still plenty of untapped potential for us, IMO.

I absolutely love this trilogy as a whole. Each individual game has a different standing but when together it's amazing.
