The critic average is a 94/100, yet the user score is 47/100. Why? I have no idea. Now, it doesn't take much looking to see that these reviews are highly uneducated. They complain about stories 'reaching the same end no matter what', being 'too mainstream', day-one DLC, and the occasional gay-hate speech. A handful complain about legitimate issues, the rest are just....well, shit. Here's a few of the memorably stupid ones-
Horrible game. Don't listen to the Biodrones. Worst ending in the history of videogames. Also; not wanting to be approched for gaysex every 10minutes doesn't make me a homophobe. I'd be totally happy with a "I'M NOT GAY" setting in the option screen.
I'm very disappointed how this series ended. There's plenty of flaws that one could overlook, such as the horrible graphics and the general awful animations. Doesn't change the fact that the story is one of the biggest letdowns in video games. What's the point of playing a Bioware if the writing is subpar?
THIS IS PROTEST! EA and Bioware should be ashamed of themselves for launching the game with Day 1 DLC! We play full price for our games, so we're entitled to the FULL GAME. The extra downloadable content could have been included in the game at launch! furthermore, they are discouraging the purchase of used games. If we keep on giving in and patting these guys on the back for using these methods to eke more money out of us, we only have ourselves to blame when these big companies take advantage of us again. I guess the only way these clowns will learn to stop squeezing even more money out of gamers is to boycott their game and take down the user score. Seriously, lets destroy this thing
So, I raise the question- what sad, deprived kind of human has the time to write a hate-speech for a game they've never played, or to NOT being playing Mass Effect 3?
In related news, SteelSammy is sad because Amazon fucked me over, gotta wait until tomorrow to play. Though, just by playing the DEMO I can tell you this hate is uneducated.
