I think I'll wait for release. Probably instant buy from me and don't really want to spoil anything.

I will probably get it but i preferred 1 and i think 3 is just a revamped 2.

Got the demo, but am not planning on touching the Single Player side of it (saving that for when my pre-order arrives )

Had a quick play with the Co-Op (on my own!).....not sold....but it might provide a few short-term giggles with some reliable squad mates on voice comms.

HATE the far too tight field of view (FOV) that has become common with consoles being lead platforms; makes me feel clostrophobic (<-sp?) and disorientated. Hope that there might be a FOV fix for the PC version by editing a config file or something. (Do the play testers never comment on this for the PC version?!?)

I got it and will play it tonight. Thanks for the heads up

Edit: Played the SP and not impressed. I cant believe the space bar was the sprint/jump/hide/somersault/pickup/action key. It was not what I was looking for.

uninstalled.

ive got ME and ME2 but have only played a bit of ME2 so I;m behind the 8ball alot. But having played a bit of the ME3 SP demo I see i could enjoy it for what it is - not planning on a getting it on release however.

Not overly impressed with the script, the acting, the animation so far. I am looking forward to parodys overdubbed on the video of the SP demo intro tho...some visuals there that leave things wide open.

anyway this is from someone who really doesn't know any better when it comes to ME

So Redgum, was this your first foray in Mass Effect or does this not bring to the table what you liked in ME1 or 2?

sorry I didnt mean to sound like I dismissed it out of hand. I like shooters and future shooters really do the trick. The demo was my first look at ME and although it might be a great game it just isnt for me.

It's an RPG first, shooter second. If what you really wanted was a straight up scifi shooter/action game then you'll likely be disappointed.

I'm not really keen on the Multiplayer aspect of this game, I understand why they did it now, but all I really care about is the story.

Not even going to download the Demo for this one - don't want to spoil anything.
