Our goal was not to remake or reimagine the original games, but to modernize the experience so that fans and new players can experience the original work in its best possible form. It's been amazing to see the adventures of Commander Shepard take on new life in super-sharp resolution, faster framerates, and beautiful visual enhancements.
    Mass Effect Legendary Edition includes single-player base content and DLC from Mass Effect, Mass Effect 2, and Mass Effect 3, plus promo weapons, armors, and packs - all remastered and optimized for 4k Ultra HD. It will be available in Spring 2021 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC, with forward compatibility and targeted enhancements on Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5.

    Mass Effect: Legendary Edition offers the comprehensive experience that the whole trilogy rightfully deserves. Thanks to this, you can easily forgive it all sorts of small ailments associated with the age of individual parts and you drown dozens of unforgettable hours in the game without blinking an eye. Yes, even after such a long time.

    The Legendary Edition polishes the Shepard trilogy impressively. A must have for all RPG and Sci-Fi fans.

    The original game has been reworked visually and mechanically to be far more playable in 2021, even though it’s still less than ideal when it comes to combat, especially moving onto the sequels. The second and third Mass Effects don’t receive as major an enhancement to their quality of life, but what they do receive is visual clarity. The game runs magnificently on current and last-generation consoles, not to mention load times are insignificant now and the graphical touches that have been instituted only help to enhance the experience. There’s nothing quite like Mass Effect out there, and having upwards of 300 hours worth of content readily available is an immense value that goes unmatched. It may have taken longer than we had expected to come out, but we finally got a remaster that’s does the franchise proud.

    Mass Effect Legendary Edition is the definitive collection of what is one of the finest gaming trilogies ever released. With an extensive list of tweaks and improvements under the hood, this is how the Mass Effect trilogy should be played.

    Mass Effect 2's Legendary Edition upgrades the graphics to near-modern standards and lets us immerse ourselves in the best game in BioWare's epic RPG trilogy all over again.

    Despite its flaws, Mass Effect Legendary Edition acts a great excuse for long-time fans to revisit the franchise as well as a solid place for newcomers to dive in. You'll laugh, cheer, cry, and have a great time. Older design and narrative problems remain and this remaster could have worked out the bugs more but you'll still be blown away by everything that Mass Effect Legendary Edition has to offer.

    Mass Effect Legendary Edition is the the best way to play the Mass Effect trilogy in 2021, but with an expensive launch price, some work on the graphics but none on the animations.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Mass Effect will go down in history as one of the best told stories in gaming. Gaming fits right between film and literature in terms of deliverable exposition and with the Legendary Edition including all DLC’s as well as an expanded ending, players can truly immerse themselves in this deep and beautiful narrative. Characters are both interesting on a surface level and profound in their respective backstories and motivations. The universe it takes place in is rich and worth looking under every rock. Every visual seems completely intentional with how it fits in the world. Dialogue is well written and performances are gripping. The freedom of choice offers different perspective and experience but it never takes away from the writer’s direction. Gameplay evolves each game while also having its own charm and intricacies to be discovered as you move between them. Specifically with combat, it feels like every aspect was carefully tuned to make sure the players experience remained both fun and engaging. It rewards skill and creativity with preferred builds. Sound design is incredible. Everything hits hard where it needs to and adds a subtle touch where it doesn’t. Gun sounds are pounding and unique. Ambience is perfectly immersive. Music is iconic. Themes will grip your heart and stay stuck in your head. Expand

    In Russian localization HORRIBLE voice acting !!! Why add voiceovers to one game without giving it all? This is stupid.
