Mass Effect 3: Special Edition - Recensione
On the graphic side, the conversion proved to live up to expectations.
It is true that the game itself, including multiplayer, already offers a very satisfying package in terms of longevity and completeness, but this Special Edition must clash with two factors of competition that should not be underestimated. First of all, the Xbox 360, PC and PlayStation 3 versions of Mass Effect 3 are now at very affordable prices and, even if you buy all the DLC separately, you still save compared to this conversion for Wii U, also having many more things (only Omega ensures at least another 5/6 hours of play).
Just in these days comes Mass Effect Trilogy, which at the same price of this Special Edition offers three whole games, two of which we will never see on Wii U. There is in fact also the "past" factor to consider. Those who have never played the two previous chapters of the trilogy have no way of recovering them on Wii U and must therefore settle for the interactive comic to discover the past of Shepard, the origins of the conflict between humans and Reapers and the various surrounding characters. Certainly not the best way to get passionate about one of the most epic and fascinating video games ever.
Although he has a 55 '' plasma and a projector, Francesco Destri spent most of his time with Mass Effect 3: Special Edition playing on the GamePad around the house. Walls, distances and rare disconnections aside, it was a really new and refreshing experience.
