I came late to the Mass Effect games,only having bought Mass Effect 2 four weeks ago. I was so enthralled with the different aspects of the game that before I had finished I had already ordered number 3. This game is a stunning and suitable conclusion to a truly epic series. It covers many genres as you play. Strategy,Role Playing,Exploration and 3rd person shooting. Each aspect blends into a magnificent story that carries you along at a break neck speed. The voice acting is amongst the best I have ever heard in nearly 30 years of gaming. The attention to detail is second to none and the all important conversation wheel lets you make decisions that reverberate right up to the incredible finale. You have to consider every choice carefully as the wrong one will come back to haunt you. This means that you genuinely care about the character you portray and your shipmates. The script writing more than matches the gameplay,giving you high drama,pathos,heart-wrenching deaths and a fair sprinkling of humour. I highly recommend this series of games to the veteran and new gamer alike.
