Of course, having some of the most talented voice actors in the business doesn't hurt either. As mentioned earlier, several characters return to the franchise. But what kind of experience would it be to have these characters return without their voice actors? Well, those voice actors are all here.
Just like it is a necessity for players to have familiar voices with the characters, I also think it is important to have a few graphical points fans can associate with the series. In Mass Effect's case, there are only a few things that, graphically, seem to not have changed—the occasional frame rate drop or the pop-in graphics. While this is an important discretion, it is also important to point out that these issues are not consistent. In fact, playing through the beginning you will only notice a few frame rate issues, while the pop-in doesn't become too noticeable until later in the game.
When I sat down to play through Mass Effect 3, I honestly had no idea what to expect. Was this going to become the final chapter in one of the most epic storylines in gaming, or was it just going to cop out with an ending to rival that of Battlestar Galactica or The Sopranos? Either way, it didn't matter. Like everyone else, I was hooked from the beginning. The extras and refinement brought into this game have only made it better, and BioWare has made the latest installment in the Mass Effect series nearly perfect.
