The Controller Online writes: "When it was originally announced that Mass Effect 3 would have a multiplayer component, it was received with mixed feelings by the community. Some people, us for example, welcomed this addition as we’re big fans of Mass Effect and big fans of anything co-op. Others felt like the main game would suffer due to a portion of the development time being re-focused on multiplayer. Others were unduly outraged; a phenomenon largely unknown on the internet. We’re here to tell you not to worry, we had a chance to check out Mass Effect 3′s Multiplayer and can tell you that it has its merits, but it isn’t very complicated so it’s not likely it took away from the main game in any way."
