Mass Effect 3 is a third-person shooter sci-fi action role playing video game published by EA and developed by BioWare for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and Wii U. It was released on 6 March, 2012.
Mass Effect 3 rates among the best video games ever made. Thanks to the previous game in the series: Mass Effect 2, Mass Effect 3 became a worthy conclusion to one of the best stories ever represented in the history of gaming.
The story continues as you take control of Commander Shepard, the first human spectre who faces his greatest challenge: The Reapers. As the game starts there’s already a Reaper invasion happening, and Earth itself is suffering from heavy bombardment by Reapers. Your primary objective is to fight back, not only for humanity and Earth, but for all other races in the galaxy who are facing the same threat. To fight back, Shepard needs allies and has to gather as many races on his side as possible including Krogan, Salarians, Turions, Asari, etc. But doing this task is difficult because of the long-standing grudges, old-fashioned hatred, and conflicts between those races.
Just like previous games in the series, Mass Effect 3 also features Paragon and Renegade decisions. You can also import save game from previous games to continue the story with your previous choices still in place. Mass Effect 3 ending also varies according to your final decision.
The core gameplay experience is similar to Mass Effect 2 with some minor changes and improvements. Cover system and other movements while shooting and running are also improved. There are many classes available for characters, for example, soldier, vanguard, adept, infiltrator, etc. Weapon upgrade system is also introduced in the game which enhances the combat gameplay experience. Some minor changes include jumping when prompted, rolling around, changing direction while running, etc. Due to those new features, there are also many ladders and staircases in the game.
Mass Effect 3 shows a slight improvement in graphics. There are three pre-set campaign modes: Action, Story, and RPG. Action mode disables all conversation options and shows cut scenes without any interruption. Story mode allows conversation choices with minimal combat difficulty. RPG mode also allows conversation choices but with normal difficulty of combat.
Mass Effect 3 launch trailer shows plenty of action as Shepard talks about uniting all the races of the galaxy to stop the Reapers because they are a threat to every organic being in the galaxy. Trailer shows many famous supporting characters like Garrus, Ashley, Liara, Legion, etc.
A teaser trailer named “Take Back Earth” shows massive destruction and fall of the planet along with fight by humans for survival against the attacks of the Reapers. Trailer also features Commander Shepard and Ashley Williams as they fight against reaper forces while Normandy leads attacks in the sky.
