Mass Effect 3 is unequivocally the game to beat this year. If you're not a fan, this is a great time to hop on board the Normandy.

We like

  • Superb plot filled with gripping twists and thought-provoking choices

We dislike

  • Some minor performance issues
  • Quest management not as good as ME2
