With three games, each spanning over fifty hours in a single play-through, six classes, two alignments, two genders, multiple romantic subplots, and all of these choices being carried over from game to game, this a trilogy that can easily span 300 hours without feeling repetitious. Gamers who want to explore it all thoroughly can devote even more time to it and still reap great joy from exploring every possibility that the series holds. If you haven’t played the previous two games and are just wondering if Mass Effect 3 is a good game. Yes it’s a “Good game”, and you should go buy it. But not until you’ve played the first two.
