A few weeks ago I wrote an article about the Mass Effect series. I observed the way the games had transformed into a commercial juggernaut by this third installment, and how there may have been sacrifices made along the way in order to bring new fans to the series. Thus, I wondered if Mass Effect 3 would be able to hit the sweet spot between hardcore and commercial in a way that wouldn’t alienate any of the fans that they picked up along the way. Before I get too into my review, let me once again give you a little info about myself. I’ve been a fan of this series since I was about 10 minutes into the first game and saw Saren betray the shit out of Nihlus. I would have had a hard time disliking ME3 based off of the simple fact that I am absolutely in love with the universe and the lore behind the games. However, this is my first review and I will make it a fair one. That said, Mass Effect 3 deserves your money. Yesterday.
Mass Effect 3 latest live action trailer was just released and in my opinion it’s very corny. Let’s hope the soon to be released game is nothing like it.
On March 6, 2012, the third and (let’s be honest, probably not) final game in the Mass Effect series will be released in North America. Critically acclaimed by most publications and gamers alike, in a relatively short amount of time this series has come a long way from its 2007 debut. The first was an ambitious game in the way that most new franchises are. It hoped to draw in gamers with its epic story spanning across galaxies mixed with a grand soundtrack, moderately fast paced action, and the now-standard Bioware dialogue system. For the most part, they succeeded.
