AppGamer writes "Mass Effect Galaxy is pure fan service. For the hardcore devotee hungry to consume every last scrap of Mass Effect canon this game is certainly worth the purchase. We're introduced to a couple of characters from the upcoming game and treated to a series of lovingly crafted cut scenes that tell a neat story, albeit a short and straightforward one. For everyone else this app is probably one to avoid until the price drops. The gameplay sections are unambitious, uninvolving and generally feel tacked on to what would otherwise be a fun digital graphic novel. EA Mobile have tried something unique here and continue to lead the way in terms of supporting the App Store and this deserves to be applauded. Should Bioware wish to continue releasing and refining these small Mass Effect iGames we will keep buying and keep playing them. It is a rich and wonderful universe and there are clearly many more stories to tell."
