Mass Effect 3 not played to finish as much as Mass Effect 2

The percentage of players who completed Mass Effect 3 is down on the number who finished Mass Effect 2.

According to BioWare online development director Fernando Melo, to date, 56% of those who started Mass Effect 2 made it to the credits compared to only 42% with Mass Effect 3.

In isolation, the figures seem somewhat damning, but, taken in context, the completion rate for ME3 is exactly in line with that of other BioWare games, while the ME2 score has been inflated recently by those  wanting to prepare themselves fully for the release of the series’ final chapter.
