This is the most accurate review of ME3 I've seen online. Good call on the soundtrack too. Well done.
i am ok with a sequel or a prequel but the end stripped everything that made the series great and said fuck it people will buy another sequel
I like the game and the ending didn't piss me off but made me say "what just happen? I thought I die. Why am I on the ground?" but after watching a few vids I got it and can't wait for Bioware to continue the story with DLC.
at first i hated the ending but after watching this gameinformer video about the ending, i must say i kinda of understand the ending and like it.
I still have Mass Effect 2 to play but if this game is more of the same, I'm fine with that, since 2 is a great game in of itself.
So far I'm really enjoying the game, although 1 minor thing I'd like to point out.
They said that this was going to be the hardest game of the three, and I don't know if this is just me, but for me it feels easier than 2 for the most part. Seriously, 2 on Veteran gave me a bunch of headaches, while this one on Hardcore... I'm barely even trying and I'm easily breezing through. I've only died, what, 3 times? (not counting multiplayer)
This was an amazing game i enjoy it a lot the only thing will be the ending for me it will be 9/10
First off,as two bit said,stop trying to speak for all of us
Second,we all agree on why we(or at least a percentage) prefer Jared as a reviewer,because he is Profesional,that is his personality
Third,this wasn't a bland review,go and watch The IGN review of this game,and you'll really see what is bland or not,Jared put in his reviews some kind of warm of trust,that we know he is speaking the truth.The same with Craig, he is a different persona and personality all together,feeling like a funny review.And when you see the others,everybody got an special feeling to their reviews
And finally Screwattack for me,has always been entertainment,the objective of this version is to go mainstream(Sites like Kotaku,IGN) if they are gonna lose part of being casual and energetic,than so be it of all of us,and if you are going to leave because of it;then I am not gonna stop you,bu I will never say to you go away,because you are a G1,and that makes us family :)
But I can guarantee you one thing,as long as Craig is in Screwattack, it will never leave its source,it will always be like that as long as he is here ;)
Time-out, Wall of Sound isn't doing the soundtrack? Wow, major disappointment. ME2 had an amazing soundtrack. But if that's my only gripe, that's pretty good.
After finishing it yesterday, I can definitely agree with you on pretty much every word in the review. There should be another type of ending for people who want more closure, but other than that, amazing game. Probably a 9/10 in my opinion. :)
Great review Jared but i'm surprised you didn't bring up that they offer microtransactions in the multiplayer like SSX (you can also play the game to get the thing) but unlike that if you do you have no say on what you get out of it, which is one of my major disappointments in the multiplayer.
I must say this is an extremely fair review. I can't disagree with you.
Very fair review Jared. I can't say much about 3 because I haven't picked it up yet but I have Mass effect 2 on the ps3 and loved it from beginning to end and I wish I could get the opportunity to play mass effect 1 on the ps3(never going to happen) even though I thought the interactive comic did a good job of filling me in. Anyway, Mass effect 3 looks just as good as 2 so am looking forward to getting my hands on it when I can.
ah screwattack, telling the truth no matter how bad it hurts. Excellent review jared
I think the game is 9/10 it only faltered once...at the ending
Probably I would've given it 8.7/10. As the game is really great except a few "cut corners" and 1 point hit for shitty ass ending. Because I believe the WHOLE game should be up to par, no matter how high the bar was set by the game itself, and every aspect of the game should be reflected on a final score. Hope Jared did the same, although can't blame him if he didn't. After all it is his review, not mine
You should just leave. Stop trying to speak for all of us.
I can do without the dick jokes.
This game has been sitting on my bedroom floor for a while now.
this game is a joke right down to the cover art pathetic this game or even ME2 should have ever been apart of mass effect and have effectively wreacked not only what could have been an amazing 3 piece epic into a gong show of EA saying fuck you were gonna shit on your product but it doesn't matter because your still going to buy this garbage then you did and thus another step forward in the world of gaming you no longer need a product to sell just the promise of a product i dont expect any games to exceed what this has done because no one needs to innovate anymore and the games industry is one cluster fuck away from becoming Hollywood good for a laugh but exists to take dollars from the morons which is an incredible amount of you if this game wins GOTY i hope 2012 is the last year so no more abominations like this occur
