It’s been years since I’ve played the multiplayer portion of Mass Effect 3. I was surprised at how easy it was for me to find a match and how well it still plays.
Mass Effect 3 was my go to multiplayer game back in the day. Teaming up with friends and going up against the Reaper forces was fun. Grinding for better characters to use was equally fun and challenging on higher difficulties.
I don’t know what made me want to play Mass Effect 3’s multiplayer again, but I reinstalled it on my PC and jumped into a few matches. Two hours later I was still gunning down Geth, Cerberus, Reapers, and the Collectors. I choose my Turian engineer and demolished everything in my path with my homing grenades and turret.
Finding a match wasn’t hard at all. I thought I would have to wait for people to join me and longest I’ve waited was about a minute before people started joining my group. When I didn’t feel like waiting I jumped in a match solo and people eventually joined me there as well. It was fun playing in a four man group and I’m currently trying to get back into the swing of things. I wonder if I can still take on the Gold difficulty? I might need to practice some more first because I was struggling on the Silver difficulty.
Mass Effect 3 is a fantastic game and it’s made better by it’s multiplayer in my opinion. If you’re a regular reader of my blog you’ll know that the Mass Effect games are my favorite games of all time. I don’t know if I’m going to replay the trilogy again yet, but for now I’m fine playing the multiplayer in Mass Effect 3.
I have no idea how active the console versions are.
