    There's nothing here that casual fans will feel they have to see, but for those still looking for deeper insight into this world, or simply looking for more Mass Effect, this is another few hours of solid entertainment.

    Leviathan's core problem though is that it's a DLC created to answer questions that nobody was asking, after an ending that itself answered too many, which you know from the start isn't actually going to mean much in the great sweep of things. If you can ignore that though, or simply don't care, it's fun addition to Mass Effect 3 and a great reason to be excited about whatever new adventure comes next.

    Worthless, just like the game. Its almost like a comedy when you try to keep track of all the inconsistencies in the "story". Also the retconWorthless, just like the game. Its almost like a comedy when you try to keep track of all the inconsistencies in the "story". Also the retcon is hilarious. The Mass Effect 3 universe is much like the Days of our lives TV-show. It simply has no point. Full Review »

     I had hoped for something that would coax me back into the Mass Effect universe; Leviathan did an outstanding job of disappointing me. I had hoped for something that would coax me back into the Mass Effect universe; Leviathan did an outstanding job of disappointing me.  The only thing that did change was a few "honorable mention" questions during that dreadful ending that already has plagued this game.  

    The animation of the key NPCs made them look like a 1970's Disney "wax faced" animatronic show.  The overall graphics wasn't too bad and the game play was pretty good, and couple of times the facial animation was actually acceptable (the look of the indoctrinated was quit effective in making the hairs on the back of my neck stand up)  Sadly though...

    That was about it.

    I am now about as disappointed as I can be with this disastrous game.  A story isn't anything without a good ending--that can either be the monument for a great work of art...or the weakest link in a chain. Leviathan didn't make the game any better, it just sprayed a bit of Rustoleum® on the link in question.

    Thanks, Bioware!

    Class dismissed.

    If you're still playing Mass Effect games for the story then you simply haven't learned your lesson. Mass Effect is all about the show now. ItIf you're still playing Mass Effect games for the story then you simply haven't learned your lesson. Mass Effect is all about the show now. It is nothing more than spectacle at this point. Keeping that in mind Leviathan is a short but enjoyable experience. Unfortunately it doesn't deliver enough gameplay value to justify its price tag. Full Review »
