5.0 out of 5 stars GamePad use and bundled DLC makes it the definitive version, July 3, 2013
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Mass Effect 3 - Nintendo Wii U (Video Game)
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).

I agree this is the best version, currently playing it, the game is huge and the gamepad makes all the difference. But I must warn, having played mass effect 1 and 2 before would have helped a lot, or else the story will maybe be confusing, lots of characters and races/places to take in. If you played at least mass effect 2, then youll be familiar with most of it.

I played mass effect 1 on xbox 360, and mass effect 2 on ps3, I am enjoying mass effect 3 the most, better graphics, love the weapon customization and added things, also DLC on disc. Lovely lightning effects and sound/music.

My advise to anyone not having played the previous, read on the internet about the story and events, the comic might not be enough.

Even though I have only played the Wii U version of this game, I agree with your review. If nothing else, I love having the map on the GamePad so I don't have to pause to view it.

Can you play with the wiimote & nunchuk? I'm hoping to be able to use the wiimote to aim the gun etc. Thanks

No you can't. But you really don't want to. I know it's a great control scheme to use the Wii Remote and aim, but here you have to use the map - letting your teammates know where to cover you, where to go, seeing the entire map, controlling the powers - it's all about the Game Pad. You don't have to use the game pad, AFAIK, you can use the Pro Controller, but you really want to use the Game Pad - it makes the game amazing.
