Mass Effect Legendary Edition is a phenomenal remaster of an already fantastic trilogy. While these remasters can’t iron out every problem, the updates are smart. This is a memorable experience, from start to finish.

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.

Mass Effect: Legendary Edition stands tall as one of the best remasters that I’ve ever played. The amount of care and effort that has gone into restoring the original Mass Effect along with the other two games is unmatched. While there are some underlying minor design issues with the original game, Legendary Edition is the best way to experience the Mass Effect trilogy. Period.

Not every wrinkle can be hidden by a skillful make-up, but the in-game feeling is very good, and impersonating Commander Shepard gives the same vibrant feelings of the past. Saving the galaxy from the Reapers has never looked so cool.
