The lights are on
Mass Effect 3 is probably one of the most anticipated titles to come out
in some time. Like Diablo III will be in a couple of months, Mass
Effect 3 has certain expectations that will be almost impossible to meet
for some people. In truth, I feel the expectations are higher here
then for Diablo 3. Certainly the wait has been shorter, but Bioware did
something incredible when they brought choices made from the first Mass
Effect into Mass Effect 2, changing certain parts of the storyline to
add continuity to the storyline you crafted.
As a result, Mass Effect 3 has become a title that not only has
expectations due to being part of a popular series, but because players
have already become greatly invested in the storyline to date. Along
the way there have been books and iPhone games to help tide gamers over,
but none of those things compare to the primary three games in the
series. There were a lot of design choices that people questioned along
the way such as the addition of multiplayer and the ending of the
game. I would have loved to have rushed out a rapid review on this game
so it could be just a bit more timely, but my personal policy of
playing through a game until I am done with it/beaten it once would not
allow me to do so. Here are my thoughts on it.
