Mass Effect 3 on the Wii U is the latest title in the long running Mass Effect series that started back in 2007 on Xbox 360. Mass Effect 3 is action packed and thrilling, a true powerhouse of a game and an epic way to conclude the trilogy.


Before you play the campaign you are given a choice of how you would like to play. You can choose role-playing mode, action mode or narrative mode. Role-playing is similar to how the 2 previous Mass Effect titles are played. You build your squad and make important decisions involving your character and events. Role-playing mode gives you the choice of customizing your character.

Narrative seems like a much easier way to play the game than action mode is. Damage from enemy fire is minimal and shield regeneration is insanely quick. The enemies move around much slower and are easy to dispose of.

Action mode is more difficult, although combat remains the same. In action mode, you don't create your own character, you'll be playing as the default character Shepard, you don't get to choose a class or choose how you level up. Action mode seems to cater more to hardcore gamers, while narrative mode will appeal more to a novice who wants to check out the game.

The story line is well written. You play as Commander Shepard, whose home planet Earth is being invaded by Reapers, a highly advanced machine race of aliens. The Reapers are wreaking havoc on Earth and it seems that nothing can stop them. Your job is to travel across the Milky Way and unite different Alien races to go to war against the Reapers. Your main goal is to unite all these alien races and take back Earth. An important aspect of the Mass Effect 3 Wii U version is that you can not import saved data from previous Mass Effect games. However, this is remedied by allowing you to make decisions during the comic which influence events from the past.


This is groundbreaking for the series since it marks the debut of the first ever multiplayer experience for a Mass Effect title. It is a cooperative multiplayer game mode with one option, survival. In co-op you'll go up against powerful foes made up of Reapers, Cerberus, Geth and Collector forces. A total of four players can join the battle. One cool thing is the ability to choose from characters, each with different powers and abilities.


Concerning graphics, Mass Effect 3 is a work of art and a masterpiece. The game is aesthetically pleasing, with every environment rendered beautifully and incredibly detailed. The characters are very realistic with life-like movement. The Mass Effect 3 Wii U version does have a slight drop in frame rate during the most action packed parts of the game.


The Mass Effect 3 Wii U version uses the Gamepad tablet controller. One great feature is the Gamepad's touchscreen, which adds a top-down tactical map where you can see enemies and move your squad accordingly. The Gamepad is a defining feature that enhances game play for Mass Effect 3.
