This three-games-in-one package is convenient, but I can't help thinking these games deserved to be remade separately over several years, ditching stuff that doesn't work like the minigames, reinstating cut content and filling gaps rather than just draping shinier skyboxes over them. Still, ME1 is better than it used to be. It's no longer tempting to skip straight to ME2, though once you leave the Citadel you should stick to the main questline and only do side missions when your squadmates ask. And play as a woman if you want to hear a really great voice performance.

The Mass Effect trilogy's classic status is well deserved and while these remasters can't iron out every problem, this is still a hugely entertaining and forward-thinking trio of action role-players.

Parts of Mass Effect: Legendary Edition show their age, but this remaster is largely an improvement over BioWare's original trilogy.

BioWare has done a fantastic job of bringing the Mass Effect trilogyup to meet the standards of 2021. While it's still a bit rough in some areas, and there's quirks to how they've retrofitted some elements into the oldest of the three (which is still inferior in gameplay feel), this is the definitive version of the landmark trilogy you remember.

‎Mass Effect: Legendary Edition puts at the reach of every player the possibility to relive one of the most iconic trilogies in the video game industry. The process, however, is much more than just a 'rescue'; The set of technical improvements, additional content and the space magic of adventures make this an essential bet for every player who loves purer BioWare.‎

The update of the game has its pros and cons, but the main improvements are well received. Narrative, setting and dialogs are still awesome, so having all condensed in a single package feels like a real treasure.

Mass Effect Legendary Edition is a great experience for every player who hasn't played the classical trilogy before if they can bear with some issues that shows the age of this games, and for returning players there are some beauty and life enhancements that might convince them to live Shepard story once again especially for the easy mechanic that allows you to move your safe file and character along all three games with no sweat

Net of some flaws to solve, the BioWare remaster can certainly be said to be a success and the Legendary Edition is the best way to get back on the Normandy and enjoy one of the most beautiful sci-ing sagas in the video game world.
