Impressions (after a couple hours of play)

  • The combat is the tightest its ever been in Mass Effect.  It strongly resembles ME2, but the few improvements that are there are welcome.
  • Bringing your Shepard over this time starts them at a higher level.  I can't say if it imports your exact level, but I did load in something like level 31, which is kind of nice.  It felt sort of like getting to continue the character, even if I did have to re-learn/re-assign some powers.
  • On the note of importing, it might not be a terrible plan to get another good look at your Shepard before you start playing ME3.  My copy imported her stats fine but was not able to port over her appearance at all.  Had to start over there.
  • The story starts out fairly linear for the first two hours but then opens up a bit more.  It still doesn't feel as loose as ME1 & 2 did, but where I am now there's side quests opening up.
  • They stripped down the "scanning for crap" significantly.  While flying around to random planets and searching for things is still a thing, it's now "fly up to system and hit the scan button, EDI tells you if something is found, and then launch ONE Probe at it to find the thing, move on."  Gone are ME1's silly ground excursions or ME2's farming for resources. 
  • Game has a lot of good nods to both ME1 & 2 so far, and it going interesting places.  I have some concerns, but I want to see the game to conclusion before I voice them.
  • Still love playing a Vanguard, even if over-zealous charging gets me killed from time to time.

Hey guys, apparently if you download and play the new DLC this weekend, next week you'll get a "reserves pack" which givs one of the new the characters to you for free. Not really sure why they can't give it to us right away but whatever. I'm up for playing anytime. Take a looky here for info.

New "Extended Cut" is coming out this Tuesday. I'm curious to see what has been changed.
