5.0 out of 5 stars A landmark series, November 10, 2012
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Mass Effect Trilogy - Xbox 360 (Video Game)
First, all these games are, or will be, available individually on each console. Yes, they announced that the original Mass Effect will be available as a download on PSN. So, what do you get with the Trilogy that you don't get with the individual titles? Pretty much nothing...

XBOX360: Everything with the original releases. Including the "Cerberus Network" (ME2) and "Online Pass" (ME3). Exactly what you would get with the individual titles. All other DLC is available at extra cost.

PS3: (Available Dec 4) The PS3 version gets more content than XBOX360. Included are Mass Effect's two DLCs ("Bring Down the Sky", "Pinnacle Station") free. And Mass Effect 2 has "Cerberus Network", "Kasumi", "Overlord", and "Lair of the Shadow Broker" (the last is the best of the DLC). But again, this is what you would get with the individual PS3 titles. With the release of ME on PS3, PS3'rs can finally, like their XBOX & PC counterparts, take their personal Shepard from the original to the (controversial) conclusion.

PC: Same as XBOX360, except ME's "Bring Down the Sky" and "Pinnacle Station" are free (they are free if you buy PC Mass Effect stand-alone as well)

I do not believe there are any updates of ME to ME2/3 graphical standards, though I may be wrong in the PS3's case. Feel free to correct.

So, I'm a little disappointed that they didn't include the other DLC's, which can get costly if you want them all. Thus, little reason for someone who has played all the games to buy this set.

But if you haven't played them, I highly, highly recommend it to anyone interested in any of: RPG's, shooters, Sci-fi, or highly interactive story-driven games. For this long-time gamer, there is no better series. Oh, give ME3's multiplayer a shot. I was reluctant at first. Now, totally hooked.
