The Mass Effect trilogy is an action RPG third-person shooter developed by BioWare.
The gameplay is a mix of action role playing and third person shooting that takes advantage of AI team based combat. There is also large universe to explore that features many characters where interaction contains choice based branching dialogue.
Pro Understanding of the world is required to make informed decisions
The games introduce a large number of races, very distinctive in both appearance, traits and history. Throughout the trilogy the politics and relationships between these races are explored and must be navigated by Commander Shepard. In Mass Effect the worlds and races are not merely background information, they must be understood and indeed shaped by the player.
Flagged Pros + Cons
Con Poor ending that undercuts all players decisions made before it
It is widely known that the ending to Mass Effect was not great. Sadly it disrespects the players investment into the game, all of their choices leading up to the conclusion. By not allowing the player to have any meaningful feedback after the last choice in the game is made it does not allow for a sense of closure and makes everything done beforehand seem futile as if it was a waste of time.
