Won't review this fully because the game has been out a while and there are much better, lengthier reviews.

One standout feature on this Wii U version is the Genesis interactive comic you can choose to watch prior to launching your ME3 campaign. Even though I played this game on PS3 a while back, I never finished it (shame on me) and I needed a refresher. This interactive comic book was an awesome summary/recap, and is worth watching if a lot of time has passed for you between playing ME games.

Graphically, the game is just as good as the other systems, though more like Xbox in the color saturation and detail. The PS3 version is a little bit duller, but nothing too standout here on the Wii U version.

The GamePad is used for inventory management, which is pretty cool, but nothing standout here either. Instead of keeping my eyes on the TV for everything, I have to look down to manage inventory. It's a little annoying in that regard, but still a welcome feature in the heat of battle to not have to pause the screen to manage it.

Overall, this is the same ME3 experience I recall from the PS3, but tailored for the Wii U's GamePad. The most important feature: that powerhouse third party titles can and will work on Nintendo's new system, and gamers can expect to see much more in the future.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great game, great story, good entry title on Wii U December 30, 2012
Platform for Display:Nintendo Wii U|Edition:Standard
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Mass Effect 3 Special Edition offers those who have yet to play ME3 the chance to play it on Wii U. I think it's fair warning regarding ME3: Special Edition on Wii U that you could obtain ME3 for PC, PS3 or Xbox360 for significantly less money currently because it has been out for those platforms for much longer.

That said, this version includes a few of the DLC packs that you would have to purchase if you bought it for on another system. Specifically, it includes the From Ashes DLC and the Collector's Edition bonuses as well as the Extended Cut ending that was added after the original release of the game on other systems. The CE bonuses include a couple of bonus weapons and armors that are not really necessary to enjoy the game. The From Ashes DLC includes a major character addition and an extra mission, which makes it a fairly good edition.

I would also warn potential buyers that there is a significant advantage to having played the previous two games. This game is great on its own, but the impact will be increased if you've played through the stories on the previous two games. Otherwise, you'll need to read in-game explanations in the codex explaining what occurred in previous games. Characters will show up and recognize your character, Shepard, and you'll have no idea who they are or why they know you if you haven't played the previous ones.

Even if you haven't played the previous games, you can use the included Mass Effect Genesis interactive comic before you start your game to make important decisions that will affect your game (like characters who may or may not show up based on your decisions).

That said, ME3 is a lot of fun, and the story is quite strong.

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I bought this instead of the trilogy because I wouldn't have time to play all 3 games.
Long RPG's that take a lot of time. Here you get a taste but it is a great taste.

The game as you know by now has an interactive comic that brings you up to speed.

Once you play the game, you realize how important, and I compared to other versions people had, the GamePad use is.
Makes it all the more intuitive and fun.

Would it have been nice to have the first and second ported to the Wii U so successfully as well? Yes, but I chose to play only this because there is a limited time out there, and it was definitely the smart choice.

Buy it for this great price. Even though it's published by EA and they're kind of "meh" this game is another Wii U gem, like Arkham City:AE etc (use of the GamePad).

5.0 out of 5 stars Slow to grow, but very very fun in the end! April 1, 2013

First of all, I'm not a big time gamer at all. I've usually found games like this to be tedious, glitchy and generally more work to enjoy than they should be. Until recently my "gaming" was centered around Super Mario Bros Wii and a little Rock Band every few months. With the release of the Wii U, though, all that's changed... Assassin's Creed 3... Mass Effect 3... so THIS is what everyone's been talking about!

This game is awesome. There's quite a bit of cinema cut scenes if you play the RPG path, but the battles and missions are really fun and if you relax and let it be what it is you actually do start to follow the story and care about the characters. And the fact that the graphics are simply amazing, at least to my untrained eye, helps a LOT. It's one of the first games I've played where the quality of the cut scenes and the quality of the game are literally identical. Usually it seems like the cut scenes are very engrossing and graphically rich, then the game itself is sorta... meh.. whatever.

But with ME3 the cut scenes often end with you preparing to enter the battle and literally the cut scene ends and you start fighting and there's NO change in graphics quality, everything is virtually seamless and amazing. If you have a big HD TV it's really a fantastic game.

Game play is hard but not frustrating, enemies are relentless without being predictable and the weapons are mostly satisfying. My only real complaint is that as a non-gamer dork I constantly have the feeling that I'm missing something... there's something I'm supposed to be doing, some battle I'm supposed to be engaged in, some critical piece of equipment I don't know about... there's just so much STUFF that I feel like I must be missing something important and not even realize it.
