Mass Effect on Game Pass leaked back in November when the Polish Xbox site stuck the Game Pass logo on the title. The revamped version of the three games scored an impressive 9/10 in our review. “BioWare has done a fantastic job of bringing the Mass Effect trilogy up to meet the standards of 2021,” said Nick. “While it’s still a bit rough in some areas, and there’s quirks to how they’ve retrofitted some elements into the oldest of the three (which is still inferior in gameplay feel), this is the definitive version of the landmark trilogy you remember. ”
