    Good Ending, but not Great.

    Sadly I did not have the same experience that many people who loved it had. Also unlike the other 90% out there, I was fine with the ending. Yes there was plot holes, was kind of hooky, and very vague, but I enjoyed it.

    What I was not fine with is how boring the actual game was. There was too much go to this area and fight Cerberus off and not enough memorable story moments. There were times(especially in the end) where I was just getting bored and just wanted the next story portion to continue. Thinking back on the experience there is less than a handful of moments I actually will remember. With ME2, every mission was a big character and story moment, that is why to me made it so great.

    Don't get me wrong it was still a great game and Bioware should be commended by it. I love this franchise, and more importantly this new universe that has been created. Also having a tied in character for 3 games is a great accomplishment in the games industry.

    As for the multiplayer, I can see why people enjoy it. It came out a lot better then I was expecting it too. The mechanics would not work in a team deathmatch style, but is perfect for the horde mode. Plus the whole leveling up thing, nice touch to keep you coming back for more. I will probably play it for another week or two, then go right back to MW3 like I do with most multiplayer games.

      I would say I’ve been salivating over the arrival of this game since I finished Mass Effect 2, but that would be false. In truth I’ve been clamoring for the epic conclusion of Commander Shepard’s journey ever since I first took down Saren and Sovereign in the first Mass Effect back in 2007. To say that Mass Effect 3 has big shoes to fill would be an understatement seeing as the shoes have become as large as BioWare’s ambition was back when they first set-out to make an epic sci-fi story that wou...

      Mass Effect 3 Review: Fight or Die 0

      Mass Effect 3 faces the impossible task of wrapping up a truly epic story arc, improving core gameplay mechanics and satisfying all the fan groups of the series, but it has a damn good go at doing just that. The game has a huge amount of considerations to make, and I do not envy Bioware having to develop this colossus, but the final product is one that has many nervous of the quality that the game can provide. Has Mass Effect fallen into a mainstream design that abandons its roots or has Bioware...
