Mass Effect 3 was one of the greatest games I've played for xbox. It was an intense, heart-racing adventure that had me in turmoil whenever I had to make a decision. To start, everything from Mass Effect 1 and 2 gets used again, even minor quests. Pretty much every character whether they lived or died was given a mention or cameo. Every major plot point from the first two games received closure. The genophage, the rachni, the quarian/geth war, Balak, Cerberus, they all received conclusions and it really makes you feel like you contributed and were a major part in the final decision. Choices you made may backfire and there were things I was unable to do that I really regretted. I teared up at pretty much every death, and there was a lot of it. The way the story unfolds with major quests and side quests really feels like you're making progress in the story and making the galaxy better. And then you get to that ending and make an ultimate choice that you really have to think about because it will affect the entire galaxy. Once I got spoiled on the choices I spent literally the entire game wondering what I would do and my mind flipped back and forth over and over. There are a few bumps here and there. Diana Allers is useless and ugly and feels like a cheap tie-in. But all the squadmates you have are great. There's only two or three new ones but they're all really fun. In James they even finally succeeded in having a good human squadmate. Another problem was that for the small collection missions it doesn't always tell you when you've got the object, but I went to the Citadel after every mission so no big deal. There were also a lot more graphical glitches than the first games. Rocks and characters would disappear and some of the characters don't look right. Joker especially has a weird mouth that never shows his teeth when he talks. And I'm still annoyed Tali's face was just a quick photshop instead of something unique. Actually, I probably would have preferred if they didn't show anything since I already had an idea of what I wanted her to look like. Even the multiplayer is great and I don't normally like multiplayer. It offers a quick chance to play classes you haven't played and the objectives in the rounds keep it from being monotonous. In conclusion, this was a fantastic ending to the trilogy and I could not have been happier.
