We’ve reached the end of the Mass Effect Trilogy reviews. Mass Effect 3 is one of the most controversial games in recent memory. The ending of the game polarized fans and led Bioware to extend what they released. Mass Effect 3 improves on many of the game mechanics introduced in the previous two games and is, in many ways, a more streamlined version of Mass Effect 1.
Mass Effect 3 is more than an ending that went off the rails, however. It is an incredible game that ties up an exciting and epic science fiction adventure that spans thousands of years and countless star systems. The breadth of the series is undeniable but its greatest strength, the characters, will always be its legacy. These characters can make you laugh, cry, and fall in love. It explores the human condition in the way that all successful sci-fi has done and does it with a flare and style uniquely its own. The world building; attention to detail, plot, and story; and the music are inspiring and epic.
It is a safe bet that we haven’t seen the last of Mass Effect. What exactly Bioware has in store for us has yet to be determined but rest assured, we’ll be returning to this universe in due time.
We at Player 2 Press Start and Agree or Die (our partner for these Mass Effect reviews) applaud Bioware for their efforts and eagerly await the next installment.
