After the success of Mass Effect and Mass Effect 2 BioWare should have had no concerns about the third installment of this series, but did they expect it to be this much of a success? The enthusiasm for the games arrival was not miss placed on top of having received a very favorable review of 99 out of 100 overall by our very own Ron Burke.
Mass Effect 3 was released earlier this week to incredible hype amidst high expectations. Critics around the world have heaped praise on the game, awarding it with over 30 perfect scores from a wide variety of outlets including MSNBC, USA Today, Game Informer, G4TV, the New York Daily News, Eurogamer (UK), The Guardian, PlayStation: The Official Magazine (UK), Official Xbox Magazine (UK) and more. The game has been lauded for delivering both the satisfying experience longtime fans have been yearning for while also being the best entry point to the series for players new to the franchise. GameSpot, who awarded Mass Effect 3 with one of the many Editors’ Choice awards the game has received, declared “whether you possess a storied history with the series or come in with a clean slate, Mass Effect 3 expertly entangles you in its universe and inspires you to care about its future.”
Upon the releasing the conclusion to the well-loved sci-fi series, BioWare happily announced that ‘the War for Earth has officially begun’. After having been released for a mere three days, they have developed a new trailer for their current and future players, featuring the success of Mass Effect 3 so far. So if you haven’t picked up your copy yet, make your way to your favorite game store as soon as possible and start your journey to save earth from the Reaper threat.
Born and raised Houstonian now lives in the mountains and is enjoying it thoroughly. I'm a Sci-fi/fantasy geek that is dipping back into the realm of video games and board games with renewed interest. Enjoying the release of Skyrim last year and now looking forward to the impending release of Game of Thrones.
