Mass Effect 3, the final installment of the epic BioWare trilogy originally started in 2007, has been in the news a lot these last several weeks with players rebelling against what is perceived as a poor ending. In the first of a two-part series, we examine the first 95% of Mass Effect 3 and whether or not it's actually a fun game. On Thursday, we'll take a look the controversy surrounding the final 5% and determine whether or not criticism is warranted. Played ME3? Leave us your thoughts in the comments.
But the intervening month since ME3s release has not been kind to EA and BioWare. A storm of protest erupted within days of the games release as players worked their way to the final and hoped for satisfyingly epic ending of the series only to find it lacking. BioWare and EA have had to go into full damage control mode and hunkered down behind the artistic integrity shield as the primary defense of the controversial ending. If that isnt enough, EA has been voted the Worst Company in America, numbers at least partially spiked by infuriated fans of ME 3 (and maybe even a few disgruntled SWTOR fans too). EAs stocks continue a rocky path generally trending downward.
