The Final Chapter in the Mass Effect Trilogy

Not everyone will survive. An ancient alien race, known only as "Reapers," has launched an all-out invasion leaving nothing but a trail of destruction in their wake. Earth has been taken, the galaxy is on the verge of total annihilation, and you are the only one who can stop them. The price of failure is extinction. You are Commander Shepard, a character that you can forge in your own image. You determine how events will play out, which planets to explore, and whom to form alliances with as you rally a force to eliminate the Reaper threat once and for all. How you wage this war is completely up to you: go into combat with guns blazing or use cover to plan a more tactical assault. Utilize your squad to full effect or take a lone wolf approach. Rain death from a distance or go toe-to-toe with enemies using devastating melee attacks. Mass Effect 3 will react to each decision you make as you play through a truly unique experience of your own creation.

5.0 out of 5 stars Review of the Collector's Edition (Not the Game) March 7, 2012
By Genryu
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3|Edition:Collector's Edition
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
There are plenty of reviews on the actual game which is absolutely amazing. My review is about what you get in the collector's edition specifically and what you're getting for the extra $20. The collector's edition is really just the regular game in a nicer looking metal case, DLC content, and some physical extras thrown in. I'll go through the physical extras first. The exclusive "lithograph" of the Normandy is pretty small (4 by 6 inches) and of pretty poor quality in my opinion. I honestly think you could probably get a high resolution image of the Normandy online, download it onto a flash drive, take it in for photo development, and get something nicer. The stock of the paper used is notable poor and pretty pathetic for something that claims to be a lithograph. The exclusive "N7" patch you get isn't like normal patches that you have to sew on. It pretty much looks and feels like a velcro patch that you can slap on to something velcro would stick to. The quality and finish of the artwork on the patch is pretty solid though. The tin that you get the game in is nice looking and is fairly detailed in the prints of both male Shepard and female Shepard on either side of the case (male on the front, female on the back). Though I imagine for most people they won't be looking at it anytime soon since the mass effect 3 disc will be inside their xbox/ps3/pc for a while. The exclusive hardcover art book is pretty nice as well, though really it's just a miniature version of the larger "Art of the Mass Effect Universe" book that you can get from bookstores or Amazon today. Still it's a nice edition that adds a little extra if you like looking through concept art behind the Mass Effect universe. It doesn't really have anything more or less than what you've seen from other game art books. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Game! March 16, 2012
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3| Edition:Collector's Edition|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I'm more of a casual gamer but with Mass Effect I truly enjoy playing from start to finish. Mass Effect 3 is simply amazing, usually the trailers for the game seem to show the best parts of it, and even with such awesome trailers, the experience of playing this game is simply incredible and every mission and cutscene are fantastic, way better than what I was expecting.

The collector's edition was cool to get particularly for the tin case, bc the artbook that comes with it is lacking compared with the awesome Art of the Mass Effect Universe and the DLC was a nice bouns but nothing vital to the game I think. What it's all about is the game, and what a great final chapter for this trilogy did Bioware deliver!

5.0 out of 5 stars War has come to Mass Effect 3, the end begins now. October 17, 2012
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3|Edition:Collector's Edition
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
After a disasterous mission, Shepard is confined to Earth, his warning are ignored and before the galaxy realizes the Reapers are not myths, they hit Earth first and they hit it hard. The game introduces us back to Commander Shepard on Earth (play the Arrival expanison from Mass Effect 2) the Reapers attack and all hell breaks loose. Admiral Anderson guides through the first mission and you are sent offworld to recruit help, after picking up an old friend at Mars, Shepard is tasked with building an alliance to fight the Reapers once and for all.

Mass Effect 3 is faster paced and more action oriented than part 2, you will have a smaller team but you will get to know them better and build relationships, if you played part 2, you will familiar faces here and there, depending on who you recruited and who survived. You can continue or rekindle a romance, you can finally make a truce between the Geth and Quarians, cure the Genophage and save the galaxy and also take on Cerberus.

I found the conclusion very satisfying but I did pick this up after EA released the new extended ending, if you can muster your forces above 4000, you will be treated to an awesome cut scene regarding the final assault on Earth, there is some recruiting, exploration, no more minigames like picking locked doors or mining for minerals, like I said, it is faster paced.

The collector's edition comes with in-game content, a small booklet, a N7 patch and a cool case, regardless if you choose this or the standard edition, the game is able to blend in an amazing RPG experience with an action packed shooter, the online component is fun and I had a great time trying out new classes and species ( you can play as an Asari, Quarian, Krogan and more) and it is fun watching your galactic readiness build up.

I highly recommend this game, join the fight and save the galaxy.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Complete Package - Post-EC Review July 7, 2012
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3|Edition:Collector's Edition
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
First, if you are a casual gamer coming to check the star rating on ME3 to decide whether to buy it or not, the answer was always "buy it." Concerns about the endings were largely from obsessed fans (like me) shocked by the conclusion to a beloved trilogy, and anyone not particularly invested in the story would not be bothered enough by the ending to regret playing it.

The gameplay has been vastly improved from Mass Effect 2. Turning no longer feels like the distant cousin of old school Resident Evil controls, sprint is now unlimited, guns can be customized with mods that physically alter the appearance of your weapons, the enemies require strategy and a well-balanced squad, and many of the powers are just flat-out cool. While the mission variety is less fulfilling then ME2 (ME3 missions are almost exclusively shooting missions) the shooting is so vastly improved that one doesn't particularly mind.

As an ME fan through and through, the story is one of the best I've seen in a game. Resolving centuries-long conflicts that have been built up since ME1, solidifying alliances one never thought possible, seeing the Reapers finally in action, finding love that had been developed through hours of story... it all adds up to an incredible experience. While the dialogue options are less varied than in previous games, the dialogue itself is more well-written.

Of course, the ending was terrible. I don't want to spend too long on it because most people know the deal by now. However, what I do want to mention is that the Extended Cut released as DLC for free by BioWare has done much to correct the one glaring flaw in this otherwise fantastic game.
