Gaming's Biggest Space Opera Returns

The iconic spacefaring adventure 'Mass Effect' is back today with 'Mass Effect: Legendary Edition,' a single, remastered version of all three games. From a report: There is no series like 'Mass Effect' -- even when it comes to BioWare's other choice-driven RPGs like 'Dragon Age.' 'Mass Effect' is a big ol' space adventure first and foremost, but it's also about loyalty, love, and tough calls. 'Mass Effect' follows Commander Shepard -- a hero players can customize for looks and gender -- across three games as they wage war against a galactic threat known as the Reapers. Key choices carry through all three games, whether it's who survives, or who you ally yourself with.
'Mass Effect' (2007) is a classic sci-fi thriller, where Shepard races to stop a turncoat operative hungry for power.
'Mass Effect 2' (2010) is a miscreant adventure centered on building a ragtag squad, culminating in a final 'suicide' mission where everyone's survival is on the line.
'Mass Effect 3' (2012) brings the trilogy to a close through a more somber, war-focused story about loss and consequence.
