Mass Effect Legendary Edition brings back one of the best sci-fi trilogies in the best way possible. 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.
Erickson MelchorMay 13, 2021
As remasters go, this is already top-notch. I don’t know what more work can they put into the series, other than a full remake of the trilogy. Legendary is already full to the brim with content. As for me, I am content with finally getting to have content that was previously exclusive to the N7 Collector’s Edition.
Richard WalkerMay 17, 2021
Mass Effect Legendary Edition is more than a straight-up remaster of those games; it breathes new life into an essential sci-fi saga, and its developer has gone the extra mile to freshen and revitalise all three games, Mass Effect 1 in particular receiving some genuinely meaningful quality-of-life changes.
Chris "Atom" DeAngelusMay 31, 2021
Mass Effect: Legendary Edition is absolutely fantastic. The amount of effort put into Mass Effect 1 alone is more than I've seen from a lot of other remasters, and overall, it's an absurd amount of content for one bundle. The games have aged well enough that they're still a ton of fun to play both for newcomers and returning veterans alike.
Kyle HansonMay 13, 2021
Mass Effect Legendary Edition is a fan's dream come true. With all three games and almost all of their DLC included in one upgraded package there simply isn't more to be asked for here other than a full remake.
Joshua DuckworthMay 26, 2021
Overall, Mass Effect: Legendary Edition advertised itself as taking the already-popular trilogy, bringing it to modern consoles, and giving it smart improvements. There's a lot that it does to improve the games without detracting from the core experience, and that says something. The first game is 13 years old and the third game is 9 years old at the time of this writing, and Mass Effect: Legendary Edition makes them feel much more current and recent.

We’ll get our proper new-gen Mass Effect soon enough, but right now, this is where players should experience where it all began with Commander Shepard’s epic three-game saga. Whether you’re an eager fan looking to return or a curious new player who wants to see what all the fuss is about, this is Mass Effect.
Kimberley WallaceMay 14, 2021
Even all these years later, Commander Shepard is a powerful force that lives up to their iconic status, and the trilogy is still captivating and worth your time.

The Mass Effect: Legendary Edition's first chapter removes many – but not all – of the caveats from my strong recommendation to revisit BioWare's epic sci-fi RPG from the beginning (or to play it for the first time).
Paul SullivanMay 25, 2021
Veterans of the franchise need not hesitate: this is a faithful polishing of the original games, with thoughtful changes that modernize the experience. If you’ve never taken a trip with the crew of the Normandy, there’s no better time than now. There’s a mammoth amount of quality content in the Mass Effect trilogy, and it’s all well worth the time investment.
Nathan LeeMay 31, 2021
Mass Effect Legendary Edition is sure to bring in both new and returning fans with its slick presentation and positive word-of-mouth about the series over the years since the original game's release. I enjoyed playing through the series again on more recent hardware, and not needing to hook up my Xbox 360 again. While the games haven't changed much from their initial releases, which can sometimes make the games feel dated, this is still an amazing collection of games to experience.
Robert RamseyMay 29, 2021
Mass Effect Legendary Edition is the remastered collection that the trilogy deserves. Playing these games back-to-back showcases the immensely impressive scope of BioWare's series — an ambitious project the likes of which we haven't seen since. In some ways, all three titles are showing their age — but excellent character writing and exceptional world building make this a timeless trilogy. An emotional and truly memorable experience, from start to finish.
Shubhankar ParijatMay 18, 2021
Fantastic visual upgrades (especially in Mass Effect 1) go above and beyond to make everything look significantly better; Aged gameplay systems in Mass Effect 1 have seen some notable improvements; The Mass Effect trilogy is fantastic, and Legendary Edition lets you play it again.

The lore will always be the absolute reason for anyone to give this a try, and it's highly likely that no matter the issues, the story and crew will be more than enough to keep you going to see this grand adventure right to the end. Unfortunately, one too many complaints are difficult to ignore and hold it back from being the remaster this deserved to be.
Ricardo C. EstevesMay 17, 2021
It is worth playing the saga all over again? Well, that's up to you, honestly. What we can say is that Mass Effect remains a fabulous trilogy, fully deserving of the time of veterans or novices, and that this collection is - globally - the best way to enjoy this epic journey.
GameCentralMay 28, 2021
Mass Effect Legendary Edition achieves almost everything it sets out to do, while also raising the standard for remasters in general. No amount of work can make a game this old feel brand new but there’s still several things Mass Effect does better than any other role-playing game and it’s been a pleasure to experience it all over again.
Trey GriffethJun 19, 2021
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.
Neil BoltMay 20, 2021
While Mass Effect Legendary Edition isn’t a spectacular remastering of a frankly superb trilogy, it does enough right to make it an essential collection. The original Mass Effect benefits most from the overhaul whilst retaining most of its scrappy charm, while Mass Effect 2 and 3 are generally better-looking versions of already great games.
Alejandro PascualMay 14, 2021
Mass Effect Legendary Edition forma parte de esas remasterizaciones que van mucho más allá de los mínimos. Se nota que ha habido un trabajo con el mimo suficiente que se merecía la icónica trilogía. Se ha hecho mucho trabajo gráfico, pero no solo se queda ahí. Toca y retoca esquemas de control, de juego, calibraciones de todo tipo e incluso busca reforzar escenarios más vacíos o que se construyeron así por limitaciones técnicas.
Sergi BlanchJun 29, 2021
Mass Effect está bastante lejos de ser perfecto, tanto en sus entregas individuales como mirándolo en su conjunto. Pero es un producto redondo, que ofrece con muchas garantías aquello que se pide de él. Si uno llega aquí buscando la profundidad del combate o mecánicas nunca antes vistas en un videojuego, va a quedar terriblemente decepcionado.
Cristian M. VillaMay 13, 2021
Mass Effect: Legendary Edition pone al alcance de todo jugador la posibilidad de revivir una de las trilogías más icónicas de la industria de los videojuegos. El proceso, no obstante, es mucho más que un mero 'rescate'; el conjunto de mejoras técnicas, contenido adicional y la propia magia espacial de las aventuras hacen de esta una apuesta imprescindible para todo jugador amante de la BioWare más pura.

Pues de primera instancia te diría que si por alguna razón, jamás habías tenido la oportunidad de disfrutar de esta épica saga, ahora es el mejor momento para hacerlo. De hecho te diría que te envidio, pues no te imaginas la clase de experiencia que estás a punto de tener. De lado de los fans y de quien en su momento sí consumió estos juegos, creo que lo más probable es que ya esté dentro de tus prioridades, pues al menos a mi parecer, vale completamente la pena volver a pagar con tal de viajar de nuevo por las estrellas con Shepard y compañía. Con enorme alegría te digo que BioWare ha comenzado su recuperación y que seguro, en poco tiempo los veremos regresando al trono que siempre les ha pertenecido.

Resumiendo, un producto imprescindible que nos ofrece una de las mejores trilogías de la historia de los videojuegos en un envoltorio de lujo, lo que equivale a más de 80 horas de puro disfrute con las que podréis revivir o descubrir por primera vez el viaje que convirtió a Shepard y a la tripulación de la Normandía en auténticas leyendas de la industria.

Les améliorations graphiques qui sont légion modernisent une trilogie légendaire même si le premier jeu s'enlisé dans des mécaniques dépassées. Avec l’intégralité des trois jeux et de ses plus de 40 DLCs, le contenu proposé est toutefois extrêmement généreux et la qualité de l’écriture et de l’histoire narrée n’a pas pris une ride. C’est un véritable plaisir de remonter à bord du Normandy pour découvrir les secrets de la Voie Lactée.
JoniwanMay 26, 2021
Des graphismes certes retouchés mais qui restent souvent vieillots, qui ne feront pas de cette trilogie le remake dont elle aurait dû bénéficier. Avec ce tarif de lancement, ce léger dépoussiérage qui n'a probablement pas nécessité le travail d'un AAA nous semble avoir un prix excessif. Mais même si c'est du réchauffé, avec un(e) « ex » comme cela, ça peut valoir le coup... Les néophytes pourront quant à eux profiter d'une aventure démentielle avec des choix scénaristiques qui se répercutent dans les suites et un univers SF extraordinaire, avec une bonne résolution et un bon frame rate, des commandes lissées, mais sachez-le, et c'est notamment valable pour le premier, malgré les nouveaux graphismes, on reste sur ce qui est désormais du retro gaming !

Mass Effect Legendary Edition est une compilation généreuse. Embarquant avec elle tous les DLC sortis pendant la trilogie, dont certains sont franchement mémorables et en améliorant largement les visuels du premier jeu, cette édition est à ce jour la meilleure manière de découvrir ou de redécouvrir la saga culte de Bioware.
Fabien PellegriniMay 24, 2021
Manquent ainsi à l'appel le DLC "Pinnacle Station", exclu pour des raisons techniques (code original corrompu), et le mode multijoueurs de Mass Effect 3, le studio ayant préféré se concentrer sur tout l'aspect solo. Finalement, le plus gênant rester l'impossibilité (temporaire en attendant un patch ?) de marier voix anglaises et sous-titres français, le jeu imposant un "tout anglais" ou "tout français" dès l'installation. Pas de quoi fouetter un Shepard !

Mass Effect Legendary Edition is simpelweg een must-have voor iedereen die de oorspronkelijke games nog nooit gespeeld heeft en voor fans van het eerste uur die gewoon een excuus zoeken om weer in de schoenen van Commander Shepard te stappen. De upgrades zijn namelijk substantieel en zorgen voor een flink verbeterde ervaring ten opzichte van de originele games.
DraugMay 17, 2021
Podsumujmy. Jeśli grasz na konsoli ósmej lub dziewiątej generacji i nie było Ci jeszcze dane poznać osobiście komandora Sheparda – nie masz się nad czym zastanawiać, ten zakup jest obowiązkowy. Jeśli natomiast preferujesz PC... Tutaj pojawia się dylemat, bo oryginalna trylogia jest znacznie, znacznie tańsza.

To je fakt vec, ktorá by mala úplne zmiznúť z hier. Taktiež jednotka nemá úplne najlepšie niektoré vedľajšie úlohy v neustále rovnakých skladoch. Samotný záver je stále rozporuplný a nemôžem ho hodnotiť ako kvalitný. Taktiež obsah niektorých DLC trochu pokrivkáva, ale to všetko je prakticky len pár minút z celej kolekcie. Malo by vám niečo z toho vadiť až tak, aby vám to pokazilo zážitok? Rozhodne nie!

Μέσα από το πέρασμα του χρόνου, τα αρχαϊκά συστήματα και ενίοτε τον απλοϊκό σχεδιασμό, το Mass Effect Legendary Edition περνάει αλώβητο και επαναφέρει στη μοντέρνα εποχή όλα όσα το κάνουν ξεχωριστό, δείχνοντας με τον καλύτερο τρόπο ότι είναι, πλέον, μία από τις κλασικές στιγμές στην ιστορία της βιομηχανίας, ικανή να μας προσφέρει μετά από δεκατρία χρόνια ένα ταξίδι που είναι απόλυτα μοναδικό.
