Electronic Arts quietly releases Mass Effect Infiltrator, a little late to the party
Electronic Arts (EA) has just unveiled the action-packed Mass Effect Infiltrator, now available on Google Play. As you might have guessed from the title, the third-person shooter is another game in the Mass Effect franchise, and ties in nicely with the console/PC game Mass Effect 3, which has caused such an uproar earlier this year because of its disappointing ending.
One of the most attractive things about playing ME:Infiltrator is the fact that you can influence the outcome in ME3. Unfortunately, ME3 is already months old, so for many fans, the Android version is late to the party. iOS players, on the other side, got the mobile game at the same time with the PC/console title.
Mass Effect Infiltrator 3 is actually a prequel to Mass Effect 3. You’ll play Cerberus agent Randall Ezno, who is forced to bring down Cerberus because, apparently, the Cerberus Director has gone too far in procuring aliens for illicit experiments. Your good side has prevailed and so you are out to stop the Director from pushing forward with his activities.
Sounds like fun? Well, probably. That is if you can get over the fact that you’ll have to spend $6.99 for the game. In short, it’s pretty expensive for a mobile game. Aside from that, the game is also storage hungry, requiring at least 450MB of your phone’s storage.
If those two considerations don’t bother you at all, then go ahead and buy the game. You’ll enjoy some pretty nice game graphics, quality audio effects, and an overall console-like experience. Along the way, you’ll be able upgrade your character’s gears and performance, access bonus missions, use bionic powers and various high-tech armor and weapons, and pretty much everything you’d expect from a game in the Mass Effect series.
And if it helps you in anyway, you might want to check out the reviews that Mass Effect: Infiltrator has garnered from iOS gamers. Who knows, those reactions might give you second thoughts on whether to part ways with your dough or not.
