Rated 5 out of 5 by Loxz In 30+ Years of Gaming, This IS My Favorite!
I always hated shooters. This game series is one of the most amazing and though-provoking games I've ever experienced. It has a a shallow learning curve and the story-line is just mind-blowing. This really evokes a lot of emotions. That is if you are one to actually pay attention to the minuscule details of the story and series of events. I love the asari race most of all. I'm obsessed with the race, but not for the reasons one might think, playing this series all the way through. I can't go into the details, but I can tell you what, this game has inspired me in so many ways. It's really helped me change my perspective on some things. It's amazing how just one little video game series can change a person's life. It's changed mine considerably.
I turned into a writer thanks to this game. It's changed so much in my life. The trilogy doesn't come with many extras, but you get all three games for a lot less than buying them separately. (Unless you got lucky enough to find them for an insane discount somewhere and/or pre-owned). This does include the Cerberus Network code and the Mass Effect 3 multiplayer access code. The xbox version sells the downloadable content much cheaper than PlayStation network and PC versions. I spent less than 90 for all of the for all three games' DLC and all the xbox themes and a couple avatar items from Mass Effect.
The graphics are much better on Xbox 360 than PS3 and seems to run much smoother than both the PC and PS3 versions. I bought an xbox 360 just so I could play this series on it. I love the Xbox side much better. PS3 version comes with more perks for buying the trilogy but more expensive in the long run. I spent nearly 300 for the same DLC on PC and roughly 270 for all the DLC on PS3.
Go xbox version! The shipment arrived quickly and was undamaged. Everything works great and the CDs run smoothly and I haven't encountered any major bugs or glitches outside that ones that went across all platforms.
This isn't a kids game. This game has concepts of psychology that many don't understand. It is quite complex with the story line and it will confuse most people. This is of epic proportions and is ingenious! GET THIS GAME! (FYI: Currently, only Mass Effect 1 works on Xbox ONE with the backwards compatibility). I hope they bring the other two in. I've not tried it yet).
You'll want to download the Extended Cut. It is free. There are some other free additions as well. You won't be disappointed, but you'll probably be very shocked with the ending(s). I want to stress that this game is really best for those with critical thinking skills and understanding abstract ideas. Though it's still fun to blow things up with grenades and powers and guns and stuff.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Play through each one fully and try to achieve as many of the goals as possible. The saves carry over to the next in the series. Some critical things will changed based on your decisions in prior games.
Rated 5 out of 5 by XBoxer720 Best of this game generation to date.
I never got around to finishing ME3 (got about 3/4 complete at a friends house with no previous save data) but I played through the first two I dont know how many times. Hands down the best sci-fi rpg gaming you can find. Bottom line. I really want to buy this trilogy right now...Can I borrow $40 bucks?
