The voice cast of Mass Effect 3

Quote:
In a series known for delivering one of the most cinematic experiences in all of interactive entertainment with an emphasis on high quality digital acting, BioWare is aiming to once again set a new bar with Mass Effect 3. Today, BioWare, a Label of Electronic Arts Inc., unveiled the cast for 2012’s first blockbuster game, Mass Effect 3.

The ensemble will see the return of fan favorites, including Martin Sheen as the Illusive Man, Mark Meer and Jennifer Hale as Male and Female Shepard and will introduce Freddie Prinze, Jr. as James Vega, a marine who will help Commander Shepard take Earth back.

“We are absolutely thrilled with the passion and emotion the entire cast brought to their performances in Mass Effect 3,” said Casey Hudson, Executive Producer of the Mass Effect series. “In a story where Earth and the entire galaxy are at war, we needed to take the performances to a level of dramatic power and intensity that we’ve never previously attempted. This extremely talented cast delivered.”

The star-studded cast for Mass Effect 3 includes the return of Golden Globe winner Sheen (“The Departed”, “Apocalypse Now”), Seth Green (“Robot Chicken”, “Family Guy”) as Joker, Tricia Helfer (“Battlestar Galactica”) as the Normandy’s A.I., Yvonne Strahovski (“Chuck”) as Miranda, and Carrie-Anne Moss (“The Matrix”) as Aria T'Loak. Other returning fan favorites include Mark Meer and Jennifer Hale as Male and Female Shepard, Ali Hillis as Dr. Liara T’Soni, Keith David (“Platoon”) as Captain Anderson and Lance Henriksen (“Aliens”) as Admiral Steven Hackett. Prinze, Jr. (“24”) and Jessica Chobot (G4 TV), as news reporter Diana Allers, are the newcomers to the series.

“I have always loved science fiction and I have always loved games and Mass Effect is really the first time both come together successfully,” said Prinze, Jr. “It is a completely immersive game where you really feel like you’re part of this journey inside this universe. It will make you think, you will care about the character you are playing, and you will care about the characters that you bring into battle with you.”

At LONG last the female Shepard trailer!

Since 97% of my Shepards are female and I know I'm biased but it's in my honest opinion the BEST Mass Effect 3 trailer to date!

Well all good things come to an end as they say and that is what Mass Effect 3 it ends the story of Commander Shepard. There is a lot to love and not to love in this game. It pays off every major and quite a few minor storylines from the first two games, the story is very emotional and a few former squad mates won't survive.
The voice acting is extremely good. Jennifer Hale and Alli Hillis are the best 2 IMHO. I found even Jessica Chobot (from XBL/IGN Strategize videos) to be OK.
The combat is a slightly more refined version of Mass Effect 2 adding rolling and an omni-blade for melee attacks.

My 3 biggest problems are the following:
1) The journal is totally fucked up. There a no updates for quests and no separation between main and side quests which makes it a mess and the fact that the damn pointer is always on a completed quest means a lot scrolling up which gets very annoying towards the end of the game.

2) There is a bug in the import feature where some of the face codes aren't accepted in Mass Effect 3 which means you have to use the default or rebuild the face from scratch.

2) The endings: Which forces Shepard to die and the end result destroys the mass effect relays, the Citadel, and strand the crew of Normandy on an unknown planet. There is no "happy" or even what I call "bittersweet" endings here and no sense of closure. Also the lead up to the final choice comes off as "WTF were they smoking?" that tries to explain the Reaper's actions (which basically boils down to: we hate synthetic life so we harvest all organic life and turn it into synthetic life) but doesn't make any sense. The only real difference between the 3 endings are the color of the beam that destroys the relays and who gets out of the ship with Joker. There is also a post-credit coda that makes matters even more confusing.

Now I'm not against a bleak or bittersweet endings but I would like them to make sense and feel like the final choice is from the game I'm playing.

And of course there is also the multiplayer aspect of it as well. Mass Effect 3 has a four player co-op MP where you and three other people must survive 11 waves of enemies in different levels during certain waves your team are given things to do (hack 4 terminals, kill 4 special enemies, up/download info, disable devices, etc). After each mission you get credits to buy packs that gives you access to other races and weapons, etc. Also the more you play in MP the more you help Shepard get a higher galactic readiness for the final battle which in turn is supposed to get more and maybe "better" endings. While the MP is fun, it does tend to get stale after awhile.

Overall a great game with a set of dumb endings. If Bioware would release a DLC that would give the game a more hopeful ending or just a better explanation and add a real sense of closure. It would deserve all the high praise. As it stands right now it feels incomplete.

Wait, so thats how the game end? Sheesh, you would think with all the whinning and crying on the internet, the game would end with sheppard waking up in bed, implying all of mass effect was a dream.

That would have been hella funny

Why the ending to Mass Effect 3 needs to be changed, it's 39 minutes long and it features some mild cussing but it's very interesting and funny.

As they say all good things come to end. Click here too the trailer for Mass Effect 3: Citadel the last DLC for Shepard. Comes out tommorow (3-5-13) on Xbox 360, PS3, and PC.

At least Shepard and company look to go out in style.
