MASS EFFECT 3
There are games that offer amazing graphics, amazing gameplay or an amazing story. But there are very few games that manage to combine the three, to make for a relentless, awe-inspiring and absorbing experience. After beginning the game you have a clear aim, which happens to be both personally motivated and important for the rest of the universe. Anyone who has played Mass Effect 2 knows how amazing the side characters were. The new game incorporates these side characters into its story as well. Every side quest seems to have purpose to it and is not just arbitrary. In fact, the number of side quests you complete will decide what ending you get. The gameplay has opened up quite a bit. You can now choose exactly what balance you want between your abilities and weapons. Remember though, the more weapons you carry, the slower your ability to recharge. You can almost create your own style of playing. Even combat is something that you look forward to, relish almost, if you are dreading the next time you see an enemy. And it’s not just about random shooting. You have to watch where you shoot. Enemies are a lot smarter and complement one another. But don’t take my word for it. Just play it! It is a fitting end to the series and is a lot more awesome for those who have experiencedthe previous two games as well.
