First Mass Effect 3 reviews all praise for trilogy’s end

Tuesday, 6 March 2012 08:09 GMT By Brenna Hillier

Hours after the midnight US launch, the Mass Effect 3 reviews have begun trickling in. At this early stage, Commander Shepard’s final adventure is pulling near perfect scores.

Bioware kept anticipation high through the evening of the US launch with several official parties and a Twitter-based AR game – as well as some spooky Reaper balloons.

The highly anticipated sequel arrives in Australia on March 8 and hits Europe on March 9, for PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. Spoilers are already spilling out of the US as gamers let their enthusiasm carry them away, so keep your eyes firmly closed for the next few days.

Grab your reviews below, and don’t forget to add your own links in the comments. We’ll be adding more scores periodically over the next few hours.

    @10, The day I rely on Metacritic user scores will be the day I stop gaming.

    I can’t say for the SP but the MP is still great. Really enjoying it. BUT – I had some left over Bioware points and bought three Spectre packs… and now everything I unlocked and received (including a Krogan sentinel and a Krogan shotgun) have disappeared.

    The EA rep was all but useless and just told me to wait. I checked again this morning and it’s still not there. In all of EA and Bioware’s wisdom, there doesn’t seem to be anywhere that actually shows I spent those Bioware points and there’s no were to see the purchase history related to the points.

    I really hope I get the points or the gear back…

    Me1 is my favourite western rpg, while i disliked many things in me2, which held me from finishing the second one for one year.

    It seems anyway i hope, they fixed those gameplay flaws in the third one. I will definately play it, anyway.

  15. TheBlackHole

    Anyone who a) thinks publishers can still get away with buying positive scores or b) trust metacritic user reviews any more than critical ones is seriously misguided.

    Most professional writers nowadays work across a variety of magazines and websites, meaning IGN are no more likely to be bribed than Giantbomb or The Escapist.

    Very glad to hear that they didn’t drop the ball with the difficult third album.

  16. endgame

    @11 Yeah but can you truly fully dismiss Metacritic? It has to mean something. I think it’s good that there is a place where fans can give their own opinion about the games that they play. I’ve seen and read what those fans had to say about the game and some don’t seem to be just.. trolling. I really don’t know what to think at this moment but I didn’t like the demo much. Animation was bad. Graphics were.. glossy. And it just seemed a bit.. rushed. Combat in multiplayer was awesome though. Also loved the launch trailer. Epic! But I don’t know. I think I’ll stfu until I play the game but after DA2, SWToR and the From Ashes DLC I’m very skeptic about Bioware games. Hopefully I’m wrong.

    @15: Publishers are the only one who finance videogame sites. Believing this doesn’t in any way effect the score of their games is just down right stupid. Best example is the review of Dragon Age 2 by Gametrailers.

    #17 3 years ago
  18. TheBlackHole

    @ #17

    Clearly you didn’t read a word I said. It has NOTHING to do with the site/magazine/blog, because it’s the WRITERS that decide the scores. These writers work for various companies, mostly on a freelance basis, with no particular allegiance to any one of them. Ergo, there is no reason for them to provide an artificially inflated score.

    If you genuinely believe that game writers (as the critical, opinionated beings that they are) would say NOTHING if asked by a company to raise a score, then you are perhaps just a little naive. Nothing stays secret in this day and age, not when it can fuel a story. The last time I think anything like this happened was back when Kane and Lynch first launched.

    Also, one example with no explanation does not make it either commonplace nor even rare.

    Im happy that the people that have managed to stick by Bioware and all the fuck ups along the way have been rewarded with a apparently good game.

    Im still out. Sorry I just feel a little too alienated from the entire thing, everything I see looks like utter shit from the half arsed delivery of lines to the awful awful dialouge to the robotic animation.

    So yeah. Have fun Mass Effect fans just try and not get too angry about the end. Which everone you get.

    @19 Personally, the fact that ME2 was showered with nothing but praise just serves to make me paranoid when I look at those scores. Nothing I’ve actually seen in terms of gameplay makes it look any different, and the writing in the trailers was nothing short of atrocious.

    @18 Honestly, calling a group of “critics”, that can barely bring themselves to go below 7 unless the production values are entirely missing, “opinionated” or “critical” is nothing short of a joke. Maybe if they could reach the same level of of disparity in those opinions that critics in pretty much any other media do, that would be valid.

    As it stands, most obviously have no clue as to what critiquing actually means, or how to form and back up a personal opinion.

    Although I agree with your overall point. EA can’t bribe everybody. But then I don’t really think they need to, since the average critic probably isn’t competent enough to seperate hype or excitement from actual analysis.

    #22 3 years ago
  23. endgame

    @18 Actually they do. It’s really simple. Do I have to tell you how this works? Yes! It seems that I do. Publisher says to Magazine: Give This Game a 9/10 or better or we will cut your funding. Magazine says to Reviewer: Give This Game a 9/10 or we will fire you and make sure that you will never work in the business ever again. Reviewer goes and rates the game at at least 9/10 (in that specific Magazine’s review). He can do w/e the hell he wants elsewhere (on his blog or w/e). End of story. :D

    #26 3 years ago
  27. YoungZer0

    @23: Thank you. It seems publishers don’t care what the criticism is, as long as the score is high. If you listen to GT’s latest review of Zelda, it’s insane how many flaws are mentioned, yet the score is pretty solid.

    Most of the ads on gaming websites feature games, those games then get solid scores. If the score is not solid, the publisher can threaten to pull the ads and with it the money.

    Really, i have nothing but disrespect for most game journalists, especially those who don’t even bother to do research, some actual journalism or review non-hype games.

    #27 3 years ago
  28. absolutezero

    Imagine that your the journo that decides to actually write a critical review pointing out the good with the bad and levelling the positive with the negative. Imagine giving the game a rating which reflected its true quality.

    Now imagine never getting hired by any site or publication because you’ve been put on a publisher shit list.

    This is a job people need to get paid and you can’t get paid by being truthful.

    Reviews should be used as a guide and as opinion pieces, never ever base a purchase on them. Theres nothing wrong with say reading a review by Jim Sterling but I would never ever let him inform a purchase.

    #28 3 years ago
  29. DSB

    I don’t think publishers would risk buying off very many people. Maybe people they’ve bought off before, and maybe bigger publications, but ultimately you’re taking a big risk by trying to coerce a score.

    You’re forgetting that a big deal of games media is gossip and rumor. If someone cries wolf on EA trying to doctor scores, it’s gonna get picked up, and it’s going to provide some level of invalidation to every other good score they get.

    There’s definitely a point to be made on implicit pressure since most publishers are paying the games writers bills, but that’s ultimately down to a lack of spine. The publishers need somewhere to advertise, and the games writers need something to write about, so there should be a balance of power.

    @26 Maybe it does…. Under the table! :P

    Really, I think most are bribed with lollipops and lager.

    @29: I don’t think they need to say it, it’s a mutual understanding.

    I think most writers aren’t even aware of how corrupt they are. They don’t seem to take the job that serious.

    Having said that, the last time i remember something like this went public was when Ubisoft tried to tell a german magazine that they can only play a free preview of AC2 if they can guaranty a good score. So they ran a different story. And eventually gave AC2 a good score anyway.

    Someone is going to be fired at EA marketing team because it is 94/100 on metacritic, not 96 or higher.

    Mass Effect 1 was decent, Mass Effect 2 was mediocre in everything and i don’t expect something better in Mass Effect 3 to be honest.

    Mass effect is pretty much cliche setting from other sources with generic shooting gameplay and casual RPG mechanic which they finally dropped in ME3 and made it basically TPS with 3 small choices (umm… dialogs?!?!?)

    Update: Ahaha, 4.1 rating on meta by User Scores. Lol. I seriously don’t get it.

    #33 3 years ago
  34. viralshag

    Considering ME3 is not open to everyone yet and the majority of people will still be playing it for the first time and probably looking to finish it before they give a user score, I still don’t get why anyone is paying any attention to that score right now?

    The thing is that most of the time we as gamers do the work of publishers a very easy one, with situations like the eurogamer review of Uncharted 3, were many gamers outcry the reviewer stating bad personal things torwards him just for the score given to said tittle, i know theres a symbiotic relation between publishers and writers,i wont deny that or defend it for that matter, but us gamers we add our part/touch in that relationship, and we have also some responsability as well, i know that maybe we dont have that much power in the end, but maybe some reviewers are in reality being affected by this kind of issues regarding fans of long great series IP, we dont see this kind of behaviour in gamers, for newly games or IPs as well, when good new games or IPS, were getting the not so good scores, therefore it might be a correlation factor between long series with good scores for this very reason as well, as also for the mentioned relationship between writers and publishers.
    P.S for the topic at hand i cannot wait for this game, the overall consensus is really strong, therefore IMHO saying that the relation between writers and publishers has somEthing to do with this great scores is not the main reason in my eyes, this game should do something good for the overall consensus as well, really i cannot wait for the arrival of my copy (one month for now)

    @39 Well you’re right, but ultimately what is written and how they do it is solely the responsibility of the critic.

    If they aren’t able to provide people with a competent, personal and honest opinion, then they aren’t any use to anyone. If people want to whine about their babies being critisized, then guess what, they shouldn’t be reading criticisms of it, which is the whole point of a review.

    A review is only a consumer service in the sense that it provides you with a qualified point of view on a game. It’s not supposed to guess what you like or dislike, that’s your responsibility.

    Even commenters on this site take shit for being negative about games that other people like. That’s just how it goes. I think it’s fine that there are both points of view, but there really aren’t when you look at games reviews.

    The only two people I can think of who stand out is the guy on Destructoid that everyone seems to hate and then Tom Chick.

    Personally I’ll always look for a Chick review, and it’s certainly not because I agree with him. 50% of the time I strongly disagree, but the difference is I know he’s looking at things seriously, critically and honestly.

    Let people whine. That shouldn’t affect any writer. If you’re writing for anyone other than yourself, then you’re no use to anyone.

    #40 i agree, but i think at an extent and some regard, a critic of any media, should also consider the group or target the review is done for to some degree, because for example if some people enjoy an RPG and you are making a review of skyrim, for instance, you should mention or put on some part of the review that RPG fans would enjoy the game more, for that they should increase the score a point or a point and a half of the overall score, just for the preference alone, rather than those who dont like RPGS, for example that like action games, which should decrease a point or a point in a half of the overall score, therefore to some degree they should consider the target, becuase is like you said a review is a consumer service therefore it is very difficult in reality for the reviewer or critic disconnect from the consumers opinion, i mean to the point in which he will be affected by it, and i think this has nothing to do with him/her not being honest, because in the end we are humans and we want to transmit our opinion that has an universal appeal or that appeals the most of people, i think is very hard to ask a reviewer or critic to disconect himself from the consumers feedback IMHO, because he wants to also evolve get better even if some critics from consumers are the bad type.

    @45 I have to say I strongly disagree. You can’t be more than you are. If you’re not an RPG player, then you have to review it honestly, as someone who isn’t.

    And who’s to say that RPGs should only be left to RPG players? They aren’t only intended for RPG players or core nerds. They’re likely intended for everyone, and even if they weren’t, it could still be entertaining or useful to hear what a noob might think of them.

    A guy who doesn’t like RPGs can’t pretend like he knows what RPG players want, or might want. That’s how a review starts to sink into mediocrity. If he goes that way, he’s just blind guessing instead of actually judging, and anyone can do that. Absolutely anyone. Just look at financial analysts like Michael Pachter. Guessing is his job.

    It’s up to the reader to decide where he stands according to a reviewer. It’s up to the reviewer to properly communicate his opinion, his feelings and his experience, and thus allow the reader to reflect his own personality and preference against his.

    Actual bias should be kept to a minimum. Take Tom Chick as an example. He didn’t like Mass Effect 2, but he likes Mass Effect 3. How often do you see that among regular reviewers? Quite arguably the vast majority are going to try to defend how they felt about the last game by projecting that onto the next, or vice versa.

    Erthazus, have you ever noticed that you ‘re typing the same poorly written sentences (which generally are contradictory, shallow and nonsensical, and essentially are someone else’s posts from the internet just poorly paraphrased, but I digress) for years? I mean, do you really have fun doing that? Good Lord… even 11 years old Transformers fans are more interesting people.

    Anyway do we really take Metacritic user scores into account now? Really?

    @47, Transformer fan what now!?

    To be fair, he wouldn’t be who he is if he didn’t do it. And realising he was doing it wouldn’t be who he is… if that makes sense. In the words of DSB: “You can’t be more than you are.”

    no, most people with higher standards think it’s trash. We’re all playing xenoblade now. Still better than skyrim though, at least ME has some interesting characters compared to that failure.

    @55, No, probably not. Maybe you’re the only person that feels the need to vent their hate. Healthy to do so, I guess.

    I checked out Metacritic before looking at this article, and noticed the 2.5 overall rating from users. Most of those reviews are spammed, like what gamers/geeks do on Amazon when they get mad.
    Why all the rage against ME3? The first day DLC? Some of those reviews have fake spoilers, and are talking about events in the game they shouldn’t have even seen yet since the game just got released.

    This is why I ignore the user ratings on metacritic, idiots use it for their vengengence. USer Ratings on gamefly are much better, I usually look at those before buying /renting a game that has been released for awhile.
