Mass Effect 3 sucks, according to Metacritic user scores... - Page 4  

post #31 of 55
Thread Starter 
Two of my friends thought the game failed to meet the heavy expectations of the trilogy's conclusion, but did praise the game nonetheless. If you expect the final game to be the absolute king of the series, you just might want to wait til your expectations die out. I'm going to buy this game next week..

edit: Also, anyone have this gut feeling that EA rushed production? I doubt it, but it could be a possible factor.

Don't doubt it. It is always a factor with every EA release, look at BF3.
Every minute of delay means they need to wait longer to get their hands on people's money, and that is something their company policy simply doesn't tolerate.

I'll get it when it hits 50% off.

I have played and beat both ME1 and 2, so what does me having to play 1 and 2 have to do with other peoples reviews? My bro also played 1 and 2 and he said he didnt like the ME3 demo so right now I'm not going to buy it till I see more feedback from other people. Also I mentioned I won't go by critic reviews because they can be one sided or paid off (yes reviewers get paid off too), or the reviewer who hates RPGs and does an RPG review... Thats why I said if it was real or fake because so many people put 0s and 1s on Day 1. You can easily put a review site on a site like 4chan or whatever and have them put all 0s.

I wonder how many of the people actually played the full game and basing it off that instead of the demo

I'm playing it now and I love it

I've played a couple of hours so far and there are a few things that I'm disappointed with but I'm enjoying the game nonetheless. I wouldn't call it amazing, but good.

If you read the reviews they are actually stating some pretty solid reasons for why the game sucks. A lot of them sound like the have played the previous two games and are writing their reviews citing specific issues in Mass Effect 3.

- Story has Huge plot holes in it (what was Shepard doing for a year on earth just waiting for the reapers and why would he loose his spectre status?)
- Gameplay is consolized, feels like halo on FPS mode.
- game has framerate issues
- textures suck, they covered them with dark shadows.
- Basically anyone who played ME1 feels that Bioware and EA gutted and dumbed down the game
- Then a lot of people are saying that the whole gay scene is nothing more than an attempt to be politically correct
- Then you get minor references to the day 1 dlc and origin (but I think most of the reviews are console players)

I mean don't forget the game was leaked and probably cracked by now, its not beyond the reach of anyone with a bit of knowledge to file-share the game and try it that way.
