Introduction

First announced in December 2010, the game was launched in March 2012 and marked the final release of the original Effect trilogy of games, terminating the story of Commander Shepard.

General Impression

The game assigns you the role of Commander Shepard, the first human-being Spectre that has gone beyond or above proving his/her dedication to galactic order. After unwillingly working for the xenophobia human-first firm Cerberus and jumping via the Omega-4 Mass Relay to battle the Collectors at the middle of the Milky Way in Effect 2, Commander biggest challenge still has a lot to handle.

The Reapers raise their heads in the backyard, a technique that was considered the stuff of tradition.

Graphics and Design

The game has 3 pre-set campaign approaches: RPG Mode, Story Mode, and Action Mode. In RPG Mode, the elements have been enhanced when compared to the Mass Effect 2. In the Story Mode, discussions have manual replies and simple combat level. In Action Mode, discussions have auto replies and a fairly difficult combat.

To level up different characters, players possess skills that begin along a single path – they eventually splint into 2 levels where you can only choose one upgrade or the alternative along a series of possibilities. The game also enables you to customize your weapons with different barrels, ammo types, mods, and scopes.

Software/Developer

Mass Effect 3 was developed and published by BioWare and Electronic Arts respectively.

Positive and Negative Impression

The two favorite things about this game is the character writing. Commander Shepard has some amazing moments with allies and friends. The reaper sound design is add a fantastic dimension that brings out the thrill.

On the opposite side, there some characters that have strong sex appeal which doesn’t make sense (designer haven’t really explained this).

Story Summary

Six months after Shepard had been relieved of duties, the Reapers attacks and quickly defeats the Earth. He escapes the town of Vancouver with the Kaidan Alenko or Ashley Williams (Virmire Survivor), while Admiral David Anderson remains behind to plan resistance. Commander Shepard is ordered to Mars by Admiral Hackett, meeting former Squad-mate Liara Tsoni (who has found a Prothean Superweapon than can destroy the Reapers) and battling Cerberus forces. However, the Man decided to take control of the Reapers. The story continues with lots of twists and turns.

Conclusion

A deserving end to a breathtaking sci-fi saga. The action nature of the video game has never been that stronger but the game hasn’t lost its RPG storytelling brilliance or depth and as the story builds up to its end, it simply gets better and captivating. It is great on the Pc, Ps3, and Xbox 360 as well as the Wii U which was launched later.
