Yet even without that additional content, you couldn't rightfully accuse Mass Effect 3 of feeling incomplete--not with so many missions to undertake, so many individuals to engage in conversation, so many choices to make. If you haven't yet had the opportunity to spend time with some of the Milky Way's most intriguing personalities, now is your chance. Just be prepared: bonds can be broken and ties can be severed. When your goal is no less than ensuring the survival of an entire galaxy, sacrifice is inevitable, and Mass Effect 3 makes sure you feel each and every one.

If, however, you’ve never played a Mass Effect game and want to jump on in using your shiny new console, then Mass Effect 3: Special Edition is worthy of your time and money. Mass Effect 3 on its own is still easily one of the best games of the year – and some (like me) would argue that it’s the best game in the trilogy – and that hasn’t changed on Wii U. The only thing that’s changed is your access to the rest of the series.

Technically, Mass Effect 3 for the Wii U is about the same as it was on other consoles, save for some occasionally blurry textures and audio problems. They're minor, and the visual differences are only noticeable if you've played the game on another platform first, but they're still there. Some minor additions, however, make up for the issues, and create a more flexible experience when it comes to combat. Ordering around squadmates, both to change position and use abilities, is easier to control with the touchscreen.
