Mass Effect 3 (Xbox 360) review


"The hype that surrounded Mass Effect 3 was bursting from the seams. A game that has ruffled the collar of the RPG genre, a game that is a prime example of virtual excellence, I can only praise it with sweet tender love. EA and Bioware have pushed the boundaries, massaging the heart and core of brilliance, utilizing their skills to the very limit, stretching the tendon of profound imagination.

The hype that surrounded Mass Effect 3 was bursting from the seams. A game that has ruffled the collar of the RPG genre, a game that is a prime example of virtual excellence, I can only praise it with sweet tender love. EA and Bioware have pushed the boundaries, massaging the heart and core of brilliance, utilizing their skills to the very limit, stretching the tendon of profound imagination. As the player you can get pushed into the deep end, or you can let the intriguing storyline unfold. Itís your choice.

You return, as the enigmatic commander Shepard, you are on a mission to eradicate the reapers that are causing havoc, if you have played Mass Effect 1 and 2, and then you will know the structure of the game. As the protagonist, you will steep your feet into complete and utter anarchy; anarchy that will scratch the heart of anyone even the steel hearted commander Shepard. You are the main host, a character neatly constructed to compete against the enemy; you are the shield, the honorable fighter.

Mass Effect always flairs up some great dialogue, the characters are like well-tuned machines, invigorating, with tenacity and somewhat amiable personalities. Old allies return, like Liara Tí Soni and Ashley Williams, they are there to fight alongside Shepard, and are key to his survival. The storyline will push you headfirst into a circle of fire, burning and racing like a palpitating heartbeat. The key is to direct your gun accordingly, donít shoot like a rookie, or you will die a failure.

The game play in Mass Effect 3 is slicker and sweeter, maneuvering your character is easier, you can adapt to your surroundings with more precision, and you can use your weapons in destructive warzones with ease. As Shepard, you can make decisions on who joins your union, your alliance. You control everything that happens in the game, you are the engineer. You can shape the future; you can shape your destiny, involvement is crucial.

As Shepard expected, the Reapers have stolen earth, and have altered it to their liking, your mission is serve and destroy. Shepard convinces the aliens to fight beside him the war is relentless. You can be the savior or the villain you shape the story. Many of the places you visit in the game are hectic and volatile, Reapers rage like the devil being overwhelmed by the God of war; they are relentless and somewhat energized by their killing touch. Bringing together the alien elite is mandatory; you need them to survive the barrage, the onslaught.

The basic fundamentals havenít changed; the selection of weapons and powers is the same. The weapons you pick up can be epic and fatal, firepower is what you need to take down the reapers and their bricks and mortar. If you are interested in the co-op mode then there is a riveting world to explore. Mass effect always holds its credentials to its heart it never fails to amaze.

Mass Effect 3 is utterly incredible in its balance and quality, its takes you too different terrains, its takes your mind to different avenues, its makes you want to explore the inner core of the revolution. Itís an inspirational RPG that has been molded by great hands; the developers are equally intelligent perfectionists. The graphics are lifelike, stunning and memorable. Push your head through the sea of tranquility and set your mind on fire, like a candle scenting the room of dreams. Mass Effect will make the hairs stand up like soldiers saluting their pride.

When playing fear, you expect to be frightened by its concept and content, but the 3rd experience doesnít contain many scares, which is baffling. I am not saying that the game is mundane and tarnished it has a profound storyline, and blood does spray like a hosepipe. By giving it a chance you are waking up the judgemen...

When playing through the enthralling epic called Alan Wake your gaming senses will be rubbed with a marinade of complete and utter astonishment. The game will take you on a journey, a dark, ghostly crusade, where light is your best friend. The darkness overthrows you; it enables haunting figures to follow your innocent...

This article felt really poetic, and I liked the sound of it -- but as a review I feel like maybe it has too many flowery adjectives and not enough actual detail? A lot of ME3 reviews seem to be like this, but maybe the game is just that good? Haven't played it yet, myself, so perhaps I'll get on the bandwagon soon.
