Bioware and Electronic Arts have come together once again to release the epic Mass Effect series, collected as a trilogy. For those who missed it the first time, get the full experience from beginning to end and learn what the hype has been about for the last 5 years.
As one of the biggest fans of the sci-fi epic that is Mass Effect, I personally have very mixed emotions about this. I’m one of the ones who’s been invested in the game since 2007 and held my breath, carrying my character – and every painful decision, sacrifice, and choice through each edition of the game. I’m one of the ones who managed to keep his crew alive ALL through the first two and in the third only lost characters because it was truly for the greater good (I refuse to spoil any of it, even now). And now, the collected edition is here, and it is ALMOST ENOUGH to make me go through it all again and relive the ridiculousness and insanity and pure awesome that was Mass Effect.
If you haven’t gone through the Mass Effect experience and you’re any kind of a fan of science fiction or phenomenal storytelling, you owe it to yourself to get the FULL experience, from beginning to end, and really learn just how invested you can be in that universe of Mass Effect. And, don’t let the people who’ve lost their minds over the endings spoil it for you, the experience alone is FAR worth the trip.
Mass Effect Trilogy is due November 6, 2012.
