From the onset of the demo, the game looks fantastic as it has in 2 previous 2 installments. The environments are very familiar to those that have played Mass Effect 1 and 2 and you will quickly recognize many of the returning characters. You play the role of Sheppard in the demo and whether you play the role as a paragon or a renegade is completely up to you. You’ll also have to choose style you want to play the game whether its Action, RPG or Story and just for the record you will not be importing your previous Sheppard character into the demo. Without diving too far into the story, you’ll begin the demo as Sheppard is called on for assistance in a threat by the Reapers. The story plays out a little from there with some amazing cut scene footage and some great action sequences. The first level is you controls tutorial if you will but it is still pretty fun to run through.
The second level you takes place a little further into the game which you can tell right off the bat. You have to travel to the home planet of the Solarians and retrieve a Krogan female for your task at hand. The level starts out with a little bit of cinematic storytelling and then quickly dives into action as you have to assist the Solarians in fending off a Cerberus attack. You’ll have the opportunity to add some attributes to your demo character due to the fact that you have 23 attribute points to start the level. Feel free to play around with the combinations in various play sessions.
