Fans of the Mass Effect series can now enjoy all the action of the big boys on their mobile device in EA's newest entry to the Play Store: Mass Effect: Infiltrator.

ME:I features an "all-new original Mass Effect storyline" set in Cerberus base, where you, agent Randall Ezno, decide to go renegade and take the whole base out. You have an arsenal of insane weapons and armor at your disposal throughout the game, and can use in-game credits to upgrade all your gear along the way.

You can also gather intel and upload it to Galaxy at War for a boost in Galactic Readiness Rating in Mass Effect 3, so all you ME3 junkies are going to want to pick this one up.

The game will set you back $6.99 - hit the appropriate widget blow to grab it.

    Screw them. Not until the ending for ME3 is redone to be less shitty.

      You can't blame them for making an ending that wasn't liked by many. Its a game, a piece of art and entertainment that's taken as is. You can't go and tell the people to change the ending of Lord of the Rings.
      I hope that you do enjoy this game for what it is, and not skip it just because you didn't like ME3's ending.
      All in all, its a good game, and after I finish ShadowGun and its expansion, I am thinking of picking this one up!

        The ending to ME3 wasn't art. It was a sad and frustrated attempt at ending a series on a terrible time constraint. They needed more time to finish and couldn't get it so they slapped together an ending and released the game thinking no one would care. Bioware was gravely mistaken and they are now planning to release for FREE, a DLC that fleshes out the endings and gives the customer something more along the lines of what they had been promised and not what they were given. Your analogy to Lord of the Rings is incorrect as that movie was based on previously released and established source material and stayed pretty faithful to that material. ME3 was a ending to a independent series that had no source material it was adapting.

         I've played all the ME games, and enjoyed the bulk of them. Everything in ME3 was great until the final 10 minutes. The ending was terrible, and doesn't mesh with any of the previous incredible scenes in the game. It was like it was made by an entirely different dev team than the ones who made the Tali/Legion scenes on the Quarian homeworld or the Mordus scenes on Tuchanka.

    And it's compatible with the Thrive! Hell to the yeah. :D

    Played this on my iPod Touch awhile ago. It was a pretty sub-par experience. Voice acting was laughable, the gameplay is just kill all the people in one room, move into the next, rinse and repeat. The only thing that broke up this gameplay were the occasional paragon and renegade quick-time events that were just stupid. And it's nothing at all like Mass Effect aside from some similar enemies. One of the only good things about this game is its graphics, and even its graphics are just above average compared to what has been delivered recently on the mobile front. Dead Space was made by the same developers and is a far better choice, if you haven't gotten it already.

       "he gameplay is just kill all the people in one room, move into the next, rinse and repeat." How is this any different from the console version? Or any shooter type games in general on mobile or console? You just described the last 10 AAA titles!

        Other shooters incorporate things like puzzles, object-finding, unique environments. Even a straight-forward shooter like Gears of War has you on a train, a boat, cooperating with a partner to turn a lock, finding dogtags, just little things to keep the game from becoming monotony. Now I'm not expecting you to get on a train in this game or anything, just something unique to keep it from getting boring. There isn't even much variety in weaponry.

    I do not recommend buying any games from EA. They have one of the worst track records on both iOS and Android platforms for post sales support: they rarely address bugs, almost never update games to work with new devices or even new versions of the operating system (still waiting for Sims 3 and Simcity to be updated to work with my Transformer Prime) and in general, are a company that is very happy to take your money but provide zero customer support after the sale. Stay away. And I wish my favourite Android sites would stop giving this company (or Gameloft) any publicity. They'll just sucker in future customers to buy into bad gaming and support services.

    Doesn't seem to be available in Canada.

    Looks and plays amazing on the HP TouchPad

    This would have been interesting months ago, when I was still playing ME3. EA has a long track record of giving no fucks about Android, though. So I'll be glad to return the favor.
