This review is from: Mass Effect Trilogy - Playstation 3 (Video Game)
The 92 hours I spent playing this trilogy is by far my best and most enjoyable and engrossing gaming experience. All 3 games are amazing in their own ways. ME1 has the best story, with twists and turns that will keep you playing past midnight, it is also the most RPG-ish of the three, giving you incredible amount of customizations. On the downside, the game is the most outdated in the visuals department, and the combat while fun is the weakest in the series.
ME2 is easily my favorite in the series, it struck a great balance between the RPG elements and shooting, it offers the BEST characterization of any video game ever, I got to know and love every single member of my squad , the story is weaker than the first mainly because it feels like a "side-story" but the great characters more than make up for it. The combat is amazing, a huge improvement over ME1. The graphics are great as well. The replay value is incredible as well.
ME3 , the biggest problem here is the lack of interesting characters, it is the complete opposite of ME2. Sadly I could not just care about any of the newly introduced characters or even the old ones. The main story is good, it is the most epic and finishes what ME1 started, the ending is OK but could have been a lot better. The combat is very similar almost identical to ME2 which is a good things. Overall it's the weakest entry but the series on a whole is by far the most fun I have had playing video games.
