Bioware's original space-opera trilogy concludes with Mass Effect 3, in the signature RPG-shooter style of its predecessors. Players resume the role of series protagonist Commander Shepard, once again customizable in appearance and character development. Combat is made more challenging by smarter computer-controlled opponents that adjust their tactics in the middle of a fight. An increased emphasis on melee and movement leads to closer, more furious battles. Players chart the course of the adventure, by traveling to remote planets and choosing which missions to attempt.
Decimated by a force of soulless invaders, known only as the Reapers, the human race is on the brink of extinction. It is left to the player to ply influence, make alliances, and discover the galactic secrets that are the last hope for human survival. Players have the option to import saved data from both previous Mass Effect games, in order to continue their own personalized narratives, or to start fresh with a new iteration of the hero. Shepard adventures along with a diverse crew of specialists, also customizable by the player. Weapons can be upgraded with scopes, grips, and other looted parts.
The limited N7 Collector's Edition of Mass Effect 3 offers players a number of extras and bonuses, both material and virtual. Packaged in a metal case, the special edition includes a fabric N7 patch, a comic from Dark Horse, a four-inch by six-inch lithograph, and a 70-page hardcover book of art from the game's development. N7 Collector's Edition owners also gain access to in-game items, including the "N7 Arsenal Pack" of rare firearms, additional outfits for Shepard and the crew, and a robotic canine companion that "lives" onboard the ship. ~ T.J.
