GB: "There are two inherent problems with Mass Effect 3′s multiplayer component- the first is that it’s Mass Effect. To even imagine that a game like Mass Effect would have multiplayer seems strange. It’s a single player game,. after all, and at first it just seems like BioWare is trying to cash in on the multiplayer craze, trying to attract the “Call of Duty crowd.” The second problem is that it’s another take on Gears of War 3′s Horde mode. We’ve already had so many games that utilize that kind of mode. Uncharted 3, Halo, and more recently, Call of Duty. It just doesn’t seem like a fresh idea.
Does ME3 integrate it into the overall experience properly? Does the idea still seem fresh? Is it just a cash in on the multiplayer craze?"
