Today, the Mass Effect 3 demo happened.
The main question is "is it good". The answer is... it depends. It's seems to be a pretty good game. The shooting is, for better or worse, directly ripped from ME2. The characters all have their original voices. Shepard is... Shepard.
But it still doesn't feel like a Mass Effect game. The running is odd. There are big setpiece explosions and action game contrivances.
The opening scene basically says this happened between ME2 and ME3:
"hey shepard good job doing nothing in me2 TIME FOR A VACATION" "FUCK YES I LOVE VACATIONS"
Also, Kaidan and Anderson are back, as well as Seth Green.
The second part of the demo stars such old favourites as:
Also, Cerberus hates us now.
As always, the characters are great. The story so far seems like ME2. That is to say, retarded.
I'll probably end up getting this game.
... when it goes on sale.
