    Amazon Verified Purchase(What’s this?)

    As of the moment I’m writing this there are 5 Amazon customer reviews about this game and none of them are “Amazon Purchase Verified” (or whatever Amazon calls it). Heres some info I have learned for those considering purchasing the Mass Effect Trilogy (PC version):

    I purchased this game today (Cyber Monday 2012) thru Amazon (for $29.99 instead of the $59.99 price! Amazon is awesome!) and I activated it on the Origin client. I’ve never used Origin. The only Digital Game sites I have ordered from have been either Steam or Amazon (& the game required Steam) or Good Old Games (which is DRM-less btw).

    On the Origin Store I see that in regard to the Mass Effect games a “points ” system is used instead of just stating how many dollars a dlc costs. Strike one. All points systems stink of ripoff imo (I think Xbox uses a point system but I’ve never played an Xbox before so this method of ripping off customers of a handful of dollars I am not used to).

    Here’s how much Mass Effect 2 & 3 dlc will cost you in dollars. The dlc that adds to the story of Mass Effect (as far as I can tell) are the folowing (there is a digital comic also being sold but I will not list it since I’m not sure it adds anything to the story):

    Mass Effect 2 DLC:

    Lair of the Shadow Broker: cost 800 “BioWare Points”

    Overlord Pack: cost 560 “BioWare Points”

    Arrival: cost 560 “BioWare Points”

    Kasumi – Stolen Memory: cost 560 “BioWare Points”.

    Mass Effect 3 DLC:

    From Ashes: cost 800 “BioWare Points”

    Leviathan: cost 800 “BioWare Points”.

    So to experience the entire Mass Effect story you would have to buy “BioWare Points” and pay (if you buy through the Origin Store which I don’t know if it’s mandatory for ME DLC):

    BioWare Points cost:
    1600 points: $20.00
    1200 points: $15.00
    800 points: $10.00
    400 points: $5.00

    $35 for ME2 DLC.
    $20 for ME3 DLC.

    Total: $55.00.

    So I payed 29.99 for the Trilogy. That would mean I would have to spend $84.99 in total if I choose to buy these DLC.

    In my opinion I believe the reason all ME2 DLC was not included was in hope that new players would spend extra on ME2. Not including all the ME3 DLC is understandable to me since ME3 is still less than a year old.

    I am a new player to the Mass Effect franchise. I have not played the Trilogy yet (it’s currently downloading) but if the story is as good as everyone says it is (not including the controversial ME3 ending) than I guess I will pay the extra $55 for the story DLC. But at least I saved $30! Thanks Amazon! 🙂

    Short review from an adult acting like an adult, November 23, 2012
    By 

    The end of the series is subject to massive controversy, but the other 99% of the series is unparalleled Sci-Fi that deals with a lot of serious topics that humanity may have to confront in their future, and has an ever-increasingly enjoyable combat system, some of the best writing and character development in game history, and overall provides an immensely gratifying experience.

    The good: ME 1/2/3 all included in one package. All of ME1 DLC is included.

    The bad: the following DLC is missing:

    ME2:
    Lair of the Shadow Broker (really good)
    Overlord Pack (meh)
    Arrival (mainly a solo dlc pack)
    Kasumi – Stolen Memory (get to add a new character)

    ME3:
    From Ashes (pretty good)
    Leviathan (pretty good)
    (anything else currently out)

    The Ugly:
    ME3 plays on with all ME2 DlC considered canon and played whether or not you have actually purchased it.

    Conclusion-
    As a player of the entire trilogy, it is hard to recommend this to people new to the series. The only period I would do so is when this is on sale. Also keep a look out if you can buy these separately at a cheaper price, because this collection is no different from buying the games separately.
