IGN: Mass Effect 3 Review

Colin Moriarty writes:

"Few games come with the amount of hype Mass Effect 3 has swirling around it. As the culmination of BioWare's epic sci-fi RPG trilogy, Mass Effect 3 hasn't garnered this groundswell in an artificial way. Rather, anticipation steadily sits at a fever pitch because the previous installments -- Mass Effect, and especially Mass Effect 2 -- rate amongst the best games ever made. And in many ways, Mass Effect 3 has set the bar even higher as the worthy conclusion to one of the finest stories ever told in gaming history, even if it's still admittedly imperfect."

The story is too old to be commented.

Amazing score for an amazing game.

After playing through the previous Mass Effect titles. I am not surprised by this review. I am looking very much forward to trying out the new Kinect voice commands. A new twist to the madness with pure innovation.

Rated E For Everyone

Can't WAIT to lose my life again in the ME universe

Life is good..

Glad I pre-order it, I know what I'll be spending Tuesday and the rest of the month doing.

Danteh2476d ago

I am commander Shepard and I am going to play the hell out of this game!

Anon19742476d ago

Fantastic. I have to admit, I have yet to play the series but as soon as I have time, Mass Effect is on my list and I can't wait to spend some time with them.

I've said this before and I'll say it again. Whenever something becomes popular, doesn't matter if it's games, movies, tv shows,'ll always have a subset who suddenly have to hate it. You see it all the time. It happened to Rock Star, it happened to Infinity Ward, then it happened to Bioware were suddenly, it was cool to take to the internet and hate on them despite the solid product they continue to put out.

I'm glad to see so many on here enthusiastically recognizing a great game they can't wait to get their hands on. It's refreshing after all the pissing and moaning about DLC and the Bioware hate leading up to ME3's release.

I'll wait for a price drop or goty edition. that's what Bioware gets for cheaping out.

guitarded772476d ago

I got it in the mail today... sadly, I'm trying to finish ME2 quick, fast and in a hurry before playing 3.

Army_of_Darkness2476d ago

Afterall, IGN's Jessica chobot is in it;)

I got the game on PC. I have to admit even thought i usually dislike Sci-fi shit this game is actually good so far. I'm 2 hours in the game so far.

Pushagree2476d ago

The demo bored me to death. This is jsut another one of those free pass reviews since the game is so popular. There is no way any real gamer could find this game to be fun. Maybe a movie would be a better idea.

JeffGUNZ2476d ago

Are you kidding me? The demo got me so hooked on the series again. I can't get the game for another week and a half, so I was pissed I played the demo. The story is amazing in this series, how was it boring?

STONEY42476d ago (Edited 2476d ago )

Guess I'm not a real gamer. *sobs*

EmperorDalek2476d ago

Have you played ME2? The demo for that sucked too, but the full game was/is epic.

MysticStrummer2476d ago

That's how I felt about the ME2 demo. I was so excited that the series was coming to PS3 until I played that demo and it killed all my interest. I didn't bother checking out the ME3 demo, even though a girl I know is engaged to one of the devs who worked on the co-op part of the game and she bugged me constantly about giving it a look. The Binary Domain demo reminded me of the ME2 demo. Cool looking story and cinematics combined with uninteresting gameplay, though Binary Domain's shooting gameplay was better imo.

trancefreak2476d ago

I played Mass Effect 2 thought it was amazing. I mean you control your destiny. You do anything you want but some time I would get stuck not following the mission path properly and that drove me nutz. But to say the game is bore well I dunno about that.

I don't know.....

I like ME3 but the whole Jessica Chobot thing, like how she's in the game, would get praise from IGN from the start.

The_Nameless_One2476d ago

I mistakenly clicked on her in the Citadel, they wisely had her back facing me, so when I realized the mistake I made I told her to fuck off.

FrankDrebin2476d ago

The problem with this site is that people waste time arguing about which system is better. That is the underlining theme. The truth is, play it on your favorite console and enjoy the great experience. They don't come along as much as they should. You should all listen to me, I'm a cop (that I played on TV before I died).

I'll play it on the PC. That's me. It's an amazing game and looks great!

About to pick up my copy when i get off of work. Cant wait to play it.

slevin_772476d ago

WTF metacritic user score?

Aloren2476d ago

Just a bunch of hysterical kids who gave the game 0 to crash the score.

Kingdom Come2476d ago

Just like Bioware did with "The Witcher 2"?:

Aloren2476d ago

Does that make it right ?

Sargerus2476d ago

MW3 user scores anyone?

Chrono2476d ago (Edited 2476d ago )

Now some people will complain it's not a 10.

WitWolfy2476d ago

Yeah like me.. 9.5 is an atrocious score!!! LOL just kidding.. CANT WAIT TO FINISH THIS!!! My thumbs are getting all excited just thinking about it :D

TekoIie2476d ago

Personally think no game deserves a 10. A perfect score implies a perfect game and there's always at least one thing wrong with every game, even our favourites :/
