Here’s 21 minutes of footage to give you an idea:Off the cuff, I can say that revisiting the story after 14 years has been great – I’d forgotten how quickly things get going, the original crew is introduced, and we’re off on a hunt for the secrets of the Protheans and the Reapers. But there’s still a long journey ahead and it’s not meant to be played in one long forced march, so it’s going to take a while before I can get my head around all of it for a review. (Whether or not that’ll take the form of a full playthrough of all three games and their DLC or some abridged version of that I still don’t know, but I’ll make sure to be very clear on what I did and didn’t play in my final review.) So, wish me luck, and I’ll see you on the other side.
In the meantime, we’ve got a ton of Mass Effect content to shoot directly into your veins/eyeballs (your preference), including a rundown of the gameplay changes made in the Legendary Editions, a recap of the entire Mass Effect story so far, and our reviews of every prior BioWare game to date. We’re also working on a full performance review video from IGN Graphics Wizard Destin Legarie to do a deep-dive into all the improvements EA has made to the trilogy, so keep an eye out for that!
