Mass Effect 3 Extended Cut Review
Review - posted by VentilatorOfDoom on Fri 29 June 2012, 15:01:27Tags: BioWare; Mass Effect 3; Mass Effect 3: Extended Cut
RPS took a look at the recently released Mass Effect 3 Extended Cut DLC. Needless to say, they are absolutely delighted with the stunning job BioWare did with this, how they've maintained their integrity and artistic vision and so on and so forth, I luv you, BioWare.
But importantly, they’ve also addressed some of the very valid issues people raised. I’d say the big two were: how on Earth was the Normandy back at Earth again?, and why didn’t the whole galaxy explode when the mass relays were destroyed?
The former is dealt with really nicely. They took out the mistake, and added in a brand new scene where you see Joker landing near the Reaper they’re trying to take out. Whichever two crewmates you took with you are then rescued before the giant laser beam obscures the screen (which also “fixes” the other bit where people decided they were dead, without having seen them die, and then threw their food at the wall and shat their pants.) And for me, it added a bloody excellent moment, as Garrus, my beaux, looked at me from the boarding platform with loss and pain in his eyes, and found the words to tell me that he loved me. Sniff.
