Top customer reviews
At least on PC, where I play, the DLC almost never goes on sale, so you'll be buying it all for more or less full price.
So, if you want to get the WHOLE package with the entire story - and trust me, you don't want to miss anything in this story - you'll actually be spending not only $30 on the base games but also at least another $70 on the DLC. So that's $100 total.
Now, to be fair, $100 for the whole trilogy is not actually the worst value proposition I've ever seen. Including all the DLC, you're probably looking at 130-140 hours for a complete playthrough of the trilogy, and the different classes and diverging storylines mean there's a lot of replayability here.
So, to me, $100 for 140+ hours of one of the best games ever is not necessarily a bad deal. It's just not the deal the package being sold here promises you. So, in the end, I do actually recommend buying this - but be aware of what you're actually buying.
Anyway, as to the actual content of these games, I will make a list of pros and cons:
-Princess Bride references
-Slamming (in more than one way)
-Actually crying at the soldier in ME3 that can't get her daughter to safety
-Imagining Ginnifer Goodwin as Liara in your mind
-Punching the reporter
-Playing strategy games with Samantha
-Playing "strategy games" with Samantha
However, that wasn't the case after I played the game.
My doubts were gone. Forever
Incredible story telling
Characters that feel more real than actual people
Galaxy so well constructed
Unbelievably detailed explanation of history, technology, etc.
I hate si-fi genre, movie, game, book it doesn't really mater.
But this ... is an exception that I will only have.
Only downside is the ending of the 3rd game, but I say I'm going to praise bioware for their creation of this game. Since I don't think 10 minute can ruin a 90+ hour experience.
Now I can't sleep cause of the announcement of Mass Effect Andromeda.
Gosh, I have to wait for another year.
Second, you'll need to spend ~$60 more for the recommended DLC's in M.A. 2 and 3, but I knew that going into the purchase. The DLC's are only available through another third party which means you'll have to register an account again, download, and most likely call customer support because none of it works.
With all the "required" upgrades pc gamers are having to make (i.e. intel processor, video card, etc...) every 5 years, I'm just about ready to shut the front door to all pc gaming and go console.
