Mass Effect Legendary Edition released on Steam this morning, and the reception was lukewarm: For most of the day, the remastered RPG trilogy had a “mixed” user rating on Steam. (Just after this article was published, the Steam rating changed to “mostly positive,” so I updated the headline.) Don’t resign yourself to disappointment just yet, though. Many of the negative reviews cite technical complaints that won’t necessarily apply to you, and there are some enthusiastic thumbs-ups in there, too. 

For $60, Mass Effect Legendary Edition is a 100GB package which contains remastered versions of Mass Effect 1, 2, and 3 (minus the multiplayer), and all the DLC (except Pinnacle Station). Being the oldest, Mass Effect 1 has gotten the most attention. Along with the graphical remaster, the combat has been modified to feel more like it does in Mass Effect 2 and 3, and some may be disappointed that the original’s cantankerous RPG systems have been relaxed. For example, you now have an accurate crosshair rather than a circle that loosely suggests where your bullets will go.
