Electronic Arts chief executive John Riccitiello is feeling “awfully good” about the Mass Effect 3 launch.”
If it weren't for the endings, and a few other issues I'd say this would be in the top 3 of Bioware's best work. Great game, but man that ending, ugh. Still they deserve the sales, and a solid comeback after the whole DA2 fiasco.
There are many endings to the game.
Not really, things slightly change but its all basically ends the same.I didnt find it as bad as others, but I can definately see how some wouldnt like it.
Its so pitiful how everyone keep trying to spoil everyones enjoymennt of Mass Effect 3 that they keep trying to drop spoiler in EVERY single article. Let people enjoy and judge the ending for themselves. Clearly Daveman didn't earn the ending by ACTUALLY playing the game. These trolls are hitting new levels of low this year. What happened to honor among gamers? My bad it never existed apparantly Evil
they had another game between then too, which was a very good mmo.
Picked mine up Wednesday :D
Got mine yesterday. Definitely worth getting. :D
Mass Effect > Mass Effect 2 > Mass Effect 3
Got it wrong bro Mass Effect 3> ME1> ME2 Mass Effect 3 is the combination of the brilliance of both games combine. It has it's own fair of issues, but the emotional death scenes, and the feeling "of this is actually a war, this is actually IT" was a great powerful feeling in ME3. Regardless all 3 are excellent games.
i agree 1,000,000% with what you said here. i loved me1 to pieces. me2 while amazing, just wasn't as good. and me3 takes everything i loved about each, combines them, then adds some more. perfect.
Nononono ME = ME2 > ME3
Mass Effect >= Mass Effect 2. I'll keep ME3 from this equation 'cause of respect to previous iterations...
should I get it? I skipped it to get SFxT, but is ME3 really worth my time or is the ending as lackluster as ME2's?
Imo you should get it. Or at least rent/borrow it. :D
you think me2 ending is lackluster? hahaha, then be prepared to be completely disappointed with this ending. It will piss you off. I hated this game. They contradict their own lore, 2D sprites everywhere in an engine that its showing its age, atrocious fov and animations, auto dialogue and choices that dont matter, you should wait for goty edition and meet me at sfx tekken so we can play a game with real replay value.
Yeah, I'll meet you there. After I got the Ultimate X Edition X 5.
If I'm right, the Protheans have an anti-reaper weapon, correct? if so, then the game is so predictable from there on out. Also I play SFxT on XBL. PM me if you do too.
What was lackluster about the ME2 ending?
I dont know why people are disagreeing with my above comment... Just play Mass Effect 3 and you will know why its the worst one in the series, (the ending sucked big time)
Would you, or anyone for that matter, compare it to the Matrix? The 2nd and 3rd ones of course.
I had though after reading stories and comments on n4g that the whole world will boycott the game /s Guess n4g community = .0000000000001 % of world gaming community.
probably closer to 1 million with pc dd sales.
I am glad; because despite all the controversy it is the best game I’ve played since Skyrim. Although a part of me understands fans frustration about the Day1 DLC, since I hate Day1 DLC just as much as the next person, when I take a step back and ask myself is ME3 worth the higher asking price my answer is 100 percent YES! Perhaps the bigger issue is that games need to be priced differently altogether. Why are we okay paying $60 for games that can be finished in 15 hours or less, but we call BioWare out for charging $10 extra to add DLC to a 30+ hour game? Yes, I too feel that the DLC should have been part of the full ME3 experience. Without it the game loses something, but on the other hand I can’t help but feel that ME3 was well worth the asking price. If games were priced based on the hours of enjoyment we got out of them ME3 would probably be a lot more expensive, especially when you toss in the replay value.
